Why Buy A Heavy Duty Truck


If you're shopping for a truck, there's a lot to think about. What brand? Which cab? Heavy or light duty? To answer any of these questions, you must figure out exactly what you'll use your truck for. If you think you'll need a pickup that can handle even the hardest jobs, you might be leaning towards something with some extra power, so here are three reasons why buying a heavy duty might be right for you.


Towing Capabilities

The biggest reason to go heavy duty is for the big capability. Heady duty trucks outdo light duty pickups big time, which is important if you need that extra power. For instance, the Ram 2500HD and 3500HD offer the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 engine, which can tow 17,980 pounds.

People usually choose heavy duty trucks if they'll regularly need to tow large, fifth-wheel trailers or perhaps a big boat during the warmer months. Heavy duty trucks are also popular for commercial vehicles, where jobs may require transporting massive amounts of construction material.

Tough and Durable

Heavy duty trucks are built to withstand the toughest work and the roughest terrain. The Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy duty pickups are built with a high-grade steel frame. Plus, these trucks come with a 5-Year/100,000-Mile Diesel Powertrain Limited Warranty as a nod to Ram's confidence in its own durability.

No Need to Sacrifice Comfort

Some shoppers might hesitate to go the heavy duty route because they may expect that the interior will be just as tough as the powertrain. However, many of today's heavy duty pickups have comfortable interiors that make a long workday pleasant and relaxing. The Ram heavy duty lineup is host to cabins made of quality materials and advanced technology like available SiriusXM Satellite Radio or the Ram Uconnect infotainment system.
