And it's as clean as it is durable. In order to meet stringent 2010.5 diesel emissions requirements, the Cummins 6.7-liter Turbo Diesel engine uses a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to virtually eliminate particulate matter emissions and an absorber catalyst to reduce oxides of nitrogen (NOx) by as much as 90 percent. Backing up the 6.7-liter diesel is a choice of either a G56 six-speed manual transmission or a 68RFE six-speed automatic transmission. The six-speed manual has an ultra-low first-gear ratio, which makes it ideal for heavy hauling requirements, while the six-speed automatic offers ease of driveability and towing. The other choice for 2011 Ram Heavy Duty customers is the standard 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 gasoline engine, delivering 383 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 400 lb- ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.

The 5.7-liter HEMI comes standard with the heavy-duty 545RFE five-speed automatic. It offers Electronic Range Select and tow/haul capability that provide a unique shift schedule that minimizes gear hunting while towing heavy loads. It also provides automatic downshift capability while decelerating.

Ram Power Wagon returns for the 2011 model year, equipped with electric-locking front and rear differentials, electronic disconnecting sway bar, Bilstein shocks, 32-inch BF Goodrich off-road tires, underbody skid-plate protection, 4.56 axle ratio for hill climbing and a custom-builtWarn® 12,000-lb. winch is accessible through the front bumper. The exterior has been enhanced with a new two-tone paint scheme and graphics package.

New dual-rear-wheel fender flares (3500 dually only) are now integrated into the sheet metal box stamping and offer an appearance that communicates quality and achieves improved aerodynamics.

Inside, the new 2011 Ram Heavy Duty offers abundant amenities, comfort and convenience. A new-for-2011 available center console features an upper bin that is large enough to hold a laptop computer (with an accessible power outlet), and a lower bin that accommodates hanging files. In addition, the console offers several other storage compartments.

New 2011 Ram 2500 and 3500 Mega Cab models retain their title of best-in-class interior room in the segment - including the largest, longest cab (143.2 cubic feet,111.1 inches long); largest interior cargo volume (72.2 cubic feet); largest cargo volume behind rear seat (7.7 cubic feet); largest flat-floor load area (16.8 square feet); largest second-row leg room (44.2 inches); largest rear-door opening (34.5 inches wide, 35.5 inches high); largest rear-door open angle (85 degrees); and first-ever reclining rear seats (22- to 37-degree seat-back angle).

Expanding business and commercial work applications, the 2011 Ram 2500 is available in a Box-Off configuration. Combining "Ram-tough" power and strength with enhanced handling, safety and durability, Ram 2500 Box-Off successfully blends the needs of the commercial and heavy-duty pickup truck customer.
