Many local Ohio businesses turn to the RAM 5500 for all of their work needs. This powerful truck offers the ability to get any job done and keep you comfortable while doing it. The RAM 5500 sits at the top of the RAM truck lineup, building on the success of the light-duty RAM 1500 pickup but with all the features that you need to complete a tough task.

Features That Make the RAM 5500 a Rugged Work Horse

The commercial-grade 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine starts the RAM 5500 off on the right foot for becoming a high-powered work truck that you can count on. That engine delivers 370 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, both of which are best-in-class figures. There is also the option of a class-exclusive 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel 6-cylinder engine that includes a diesel exhaust brake system. This engine can handle towing as much as 30,600 pounds with a GCWR of up to 38,500 pounds. Even the gas engine has impressive maximum specs, towing up to 19,010 pounds with a max GCWR of 26,000. Whether it’s a trailer full of horses or your favorite boat, you’ll have more than enough power to get it where you’re going.

The diesel can even have B20 biodiesel capability and has the best-in-class oil change intervals of 15,000 miles. The gas engine complements this with its own best-in-class oil change interval of 10,000 miles. When paired with the turbodiesel, the RAM 5500 can have as much as 440 amps, the best-in-class maximum. To make the RAM 5500 even better, the rear frame strength is unsurpassed with 50,000 PSI. The vehicle also offers the best-in-class combined dual fuel tank capacity of 74 gallons. To further enhance the RAM 5500 for Ohio businesses, it can include five different Power Take Off prep options and comes standard with electronic stability control, trailer sway control, all-speed traction control, rain brake support, and hill start assist.
