Update #1 July-28-2009 19:27 PDT:The 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 adds a new 3.21 rear arbor advantage for all three cab configurations able with a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 and two-wheel drive only. The taller (numerically lower) final drive arrangement is agnate to the rear arbor admeasurement that GM and Ford action in their XFE (3.08) and above SFE (3.15) ammunition ability pickups.
Adding a new rear arbor is a almost accessible way to advice advance ammunition abridgement about Dodge (for now) has restated aftermost year’s 14/20 mpg city/highway EPA gas breadth ratings for two-wheel drive 5.7-liter half-ton Rams. Could we see a slight ammunition abridgement bang afterwards in the year? Stay tuned.
A approved cab Ram 1500 with a 3.21 rear arbor is rated to tow up to 6,100 pounds with 17-inch auto or up to 5,900 pounds with 20-inch wheels. The Crew Cab can cull up to 5,700 pounds and a Quad Cab can tow up to 5,800 pounds. A 17-inch caster is the alone caster advantage for the Quad Cab and Crew Cab configurations.
All Ram 1500 trucks with 3.21 axles accept an 11,000 batter GCWR.
Following aftermost year’s top-to-bottom redesign of the Dodge Ram 1500 auto truck, the upgrades abide in 2010, including a cogent bang in best bivouac towing and a bordering access in payload.
To accomplish the college numbers, Dodge has added the half-ton Ram’s best gross accumulated weight appraisement by 1,500 pounds, to 15,500 pounds. GCWR is the best acceptable weight, including burden and passengers, that a auto affairs a bivouac can handle afterwards risking damage.
The added GCWR gives the Ram a new 10,450-pound best towing accommodation for the approved cab, long-bed, two-wheel-drive archetypal with a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. It additionally requires a 3.92 rear arbor and 17-inch wheels.
Last year’s Ram with an identical agreement was alone rated to tow up to 9,100 pounds, a amount that drew some criticism from austere light-duty building and accurately allocution from added articles because the new Ram had the everyman appraisement in the segment.
Chrysler’s acknowledgment was that the Ram’s absolute coil-spring rear abeyance gave the Ram abundant bigger ride affection against the antagonism (something we aboveboard accede with), and that barter buyers who charge to tow added than 10,000 pounds should attending to the able articulation to acquisition the appropriate barter to accommodated their needs. At its accession aftermost year, Scott Kunselman, again Chrysler’s carnality admiral of body-on-frame products, told PickupTrucks.com that Chrysler’s analysis during Ram 1500 development showed that 80 percent of light-duty owners towed trailers belief beneath than 6,000 pounds. Chrysler didn’t see the charge to hunt acutely amaranthine increases in best towing abstracts in the half-ton segment.
Interestingly, Dodge accomplished the towing access afterwards any accouterments changes, such as the accession of heavier-duty springs and shocks, or an upgraded chiral cooler. So, how did the appraisement change occur?
“When developing the all-new 2009 Dodge Ram, the ambition was to bout the previous-generation Dodge Ram tow capabilities. These goals were accomplished and delivered on the all-new 2009 Dodge Ram 1500,” Dodge barter agent Roger Benvenuti told PickupTrucks.com. “For 2010, engineers bent the Dodge Ram was able of towing abundant added than ahead tested. Subsequently, the tow ratings were reassessed and the 2010 Dodge Ram added its gross accumulated weight appraisement by 1,500 pounds afterwards any basic or arrangement changes to the vehicle.”
Benvenuti additionally said Dodge barter engineers followed new testing protocols accustomed by the Society of Automotive Engineers and a accumulation of barter manufacturers to assimilate tow testing, which we covered in backward 2007.
“While all manufacturers use a hardly altered tow-rating belief back evaluating their vehicles, several accepted factors charge be maintained by all back free tow ratings,” Benvenuti said. “These accommodate architecture requirements such as engine, chiral and arbor cooling, while still ensuring a abiding agent back towing. Our engineers performed both simulation and real-world tests to ensure that all of our centralized targets and all the guidelines set by the new proposed SAE tow accepted were achieved. The 2010 Dodge Ram 1500’s towing adequacy was re-rated afterwards sacrificing performance, affection or reliability, and now exceeds both Ford and Chevy on analogously able vehicles.”
Dodge isn’t the aboriginal architect to magically access the tow appraisement of its half-ton auto afterwards alteration hardware. Ford pulled a agnate move back it upped the 2008 Ford F-150’s max tow appraisement to 11,000 pounds from 9,900 pounds the year before, afterwards the 2007 Toyota Tundra accustomed with a 10,800-pound tow rating. The Ram’s new 10,450-pound appraisement is acceptable to wind up as a aloof point in Dodge’s 2010 business efforts.
In accession to the towing increase, the Ram’s best burden has added by 50 pounds, to 1,900 pounds, for a approved cab two-wheel-drive barter back able with the accepted 3.7-liter V-6.
Other acceptable changes for 2010 accommodate alternative chiral or power-folding trailer-towing mirrors – so you can tow that bigger bivouac – an alternative chip trailer-brake controller, and an 18-mm (.7-inch) deepening of the advanced air dam to advance aerodynamics. An added ammunition shutoff affection during deceleration should hardly advance ammunition efficiency.
Smaller changes accommodate a fuel-saver indicator ablaze for the 3.7-liter V-6 model, iPod affiliation — so the music amateur can be controlled through the stereo controls or steering-wheel ons — new acquiescent arch restraints, and new 22-inch auto for the Ram R/T.
