Ram Chassis Cab Named 2011 Medium-Duty Truck Of The Year.

The Ram 4500/5500 Chassis Cab was recently named Work Truck magazine’s 2011 Medium-Duty Truck of the Year. Professional fleet managers were asked to consider which medium-duty truck (out of 19 vehicles) best fit their fleet requirements. They judged the vehicles based on application effectiveness, durability, quality, servicing, maintenance, and lifecycle costs. The Ram 4500/5500 Chassis Cab received the most votes and was selected as the clear winner.

The commercial-grade Cummins 6.7L Turbo Diesel is the exclusive engine offered in Ram 4500/5500 Chassis Cab trucks. It produces 305 hp (227 kW) at 2900 rpm, and
610 lb-ft (827 N•m) of torque at 1600 rpm, providing excellent pulling power.

The Cummins 6.7L Turbo Diesel continues to offer the most powerful integrated exhaust brake available in a heavy-duty truck. Cummins best-in-class integrated exhaust brake, with a full 225 braking horsepower (168 kW) at the wheel, gives
Ram Chassis Cab customers more confidence while towing the heaviest loads down the most severe grades. Using the engine for braking power, it provides added vehicle control and vehicle brake savings, extending the vehicle brake life and reducing total cost of ownership.

“The commercial truck segment is all about total cost of ownership,” said Fred Diaz, Ram Truck President, CEO and Head of U.S. Sales – Chrysler Group LLC. “When you account for fuel economy, brake wear, tire wear and the best powertrain warranty in the business, Ram Chassis Cab trucks offer the lowest cost of ownership.”

Like other Cummins engines running in commercial vehicles all the way up to Class 8 trucks, the 6.7L Turbo Diesel’s in-line six-cylinder configuration results in fewer components than comparable heavy-duty V8 engines. With this in-line six-cylinder configuration, time spent on maintenance is kept to a minimum, with easy access to all service points. In addition, the Ram Chassis Cab uses the same Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system that Cummins currently offers for all other on-highway commercial applications. The Cummins SCR system is conveniently placed out of the way of upfit zones, saving time and money in the upfit process.

Whether you are hauling lumber or outfitting a fleet of emergency vehicles, the Ram Chassis Cab powered by the Cummins 6.7L Turbo Diesel is the optimum solution for a work truck. It offers the lowest cost of ownership, with the capability and dependability needed to take on the toughest jobs.
