If you need to handle the toughest tasks on your Overland Park jobsite, then you’ll likely need the power of a heavy duty truck. Depending on your budget and capability needs, there are two heavy-duty options in the RAM truck lineup. Compare the RAM 2500 vs. RAM 3500 to see which one offers everything you need to take on your daily to-do list!

However, those who need as much power as possible will gravitate toward the RAM 3500 and its available High Output 6.7L Cummins® Turbodiesel I6, which pumps out a whopping best-in-class 1,000 lb-ft of torque.
