With a 6.7 liter Cummins turbo diesel engine, the towing capacity of the 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 exceeds 13,000 pounds. This engine generates 350 horsepower and 650 foot-pounds of torque. When outfitted properly, the Dodge Ram 2500 goes above and beyond other trucks of its caliber.
The 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 turbo diesel comes equipped with either a six-speed manual transmission that has an ultra-low first-gear ratio or a six-speed automatic that’s ideal for towing. The Dodge turbo diesel, unlike diesel engines from Ford or Chevrolet, doesn't need diesel exhaust fluid for its emissions system, which means one less tank to fill on the road.
