2019 Ram Heavy Duty: King of the Hill for Capability, Towing, Hauling

The 2019 Ram Heavy Duty has ‘overpowered’ the heavy-duty truck segment with capability and torque unmatched in that segment on the road today. It’s quite literally the most powerful pickup ever built thanks to a new Cummins 6.7-liter high-output Turbo Diesel that delivers up to 1,000 lb. ft. of torque. But the brand didn’t stop there. This new Cummins Turbo diesel also weighs 60 pounds less than the previous-generation engine, yet still delivers more power and torque. All that power and capability translate into welcome news for truck owners who constantly face the need to tackle the biggest towing and hauling jobs on a daily basis. This Truck Tuesday, Rod Roman, Chief Engineer for Ram Heavy Duty, says achieving the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty ‘trifecta’ of benchmarks – towing, hauling and torque – was the mission of everyone on the program from the start!

Hi, I’m Betty Carrier Newman. I know – three names! Just who does she think she is? I’m a native Michigander; therefore, I love all things outdoors, like hiking and off-roading. I work in Communications with the Digital Media team. Some days I produce video shoots, write scripts, voice and edit video for features to post to our corporate and social media sites. Other times I’m strategizing with the brands I support – Ram, Jeep and Corporate – to come up with attention-grabbing ways to tell their unique stories. Then there’s the travel - to places like Moab, Utah, and the Rubicon Trail in California - to shoot (and enjoy) awesome off-road adventure that I then turn into exciting videos to post on our sites. Routine? Definitely not in my world! Challenges, creativity, cool cars and trucks, exciting places – yeah, they’re in there! Oh, the three names? In an earlier life I was hired as the first major-market female TV co-anchor for the NBC affiliate in Detroit – Channel 4. My name was Betty Carrier back then – until I married and added the ‘Newman.’ That’s my story and, yes, I’m really enjoying my FCA ride!
