Ram announced today at the 2016 Work Truck Show in Indianapolis that its 2016 Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cab trucks now offer the most Power Take-off (PTO) options.

New for 2016, Ram Chassis Cab trucks feature several PTO capability options: Right and left sides, 4 x 4 and 4 x 2 and 6.4-liter HEMI gas or 6.7-liter Cummins diesel.

Additionally, Ram reports that its Chassis Cab trucks offer a best-in-class 60 horsepower of PTO output, thanks to its 6.7-liter Cummins.

Ram also holds the title with its 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 gas engine while using four cylinder mode. “Fuel Saver Technology” in the 6.4 HEMI creates greater efficiencies while on a job site with the ability to run a compressor and generator simultaneously off the PTO.

“Ram Commercial has gained ground through innovation and by listening to owners,” said Dave Sowers, Head of Ram Commercial. “By offering exclusive features and through constant improvement we continue our role as most upfitter friendly and Ram’s record sales are proof we’re making customers happy.”

Ram reports that its most capable truck line focuses on delivering best-in-class capability and best-in-class total cost of ownership, which continues to be an attractive selling point.

Ram enjoys several best-in-class distinctions including Gross Combined Weight Ratings (GCWR) of 37,500 pounds, towing capability of 29,600 pounds and frame strength provided by 50,000 psi steel.

All configurations of Chassis Cab can be ordered with a staggering dual fuel tank capacity of 74-gallons, which delivers the highest fuel storage and drive range in the segments. Ram reports that having additional fuel means more run time and improved total cost of ownership, which in some models adds up to more than 1,000 miles of operation.

The 2016 Ram Chassis Cab trucks can be ordered with an optional ParkSense Package, which now includes a new front park assist system. This feature further enhances safe operation and complements the current backup camera offering. The feature audibly notifies the driver of oncoming contact.

Ram Chassis Cab trucks offer the latest infotainment technology, including hands-free communication which enables drivers to keep their hands on the wheel while talking on a cell phone. For 2016, a new lower cost radio option is available with Bluetooth connectivity.

Ram Chassis Cab engineers design trucks for upfits and develop unique features to ease installation of multiple systems and bodies without interference or difficult relocation of components, including: Industry standard frame lengths of 60, 84, 108 and 120 inches; no components or lines above the rear frame rails; through-the-frame plumbing and electrical; and diesel exhaust fluid tank (DEF) refill port is conveniently located at the rear of the cab on the driver’s side to ensure easy access at fuel stations.
