And here are a few more things business owners will love to hear. The diesel shutdown timer is now a retail option and there's a selectable top speed control that graduates in 5 mph increments from 55 to 75 mph. There's also an expanded selection of low-volume paint colors that will complement the individual needs of business fleets big and small.
Best of all, 2012 Ram Chassis Cabs feature an enhanced available integrated
trailer controller, and a new 6-speed transmission accompanies the legendary
5.7L gas V8 engine on 3500 models.
Every truck likes to say they're tough. Some even use the word in their tagline. But only Ram Chassis Cabs have the proof to back it up. Like best-in-class accolades that save businesses money by lowing upfit, maintenance and downtime expenses. Accolades like best-in-class rear frame strength, a largest-in-class 52-gallon rear fuel tank, four integrated upfit switches and an unsurpassed 5-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty to name a few. Add to the list brake fade resistance and superb exhaust brake performance and you've got a machine that knows no boundaries in terms of strength, range or versatility.
Here's something else businesses will appreciate: 4500/5500 Ram Chassis Cabs models deliver more in every load with up to 22,250 lbs. of towing power via the available Max Tow Package. And, they do it with a low cost of ownership as a result of fuel efficiency and minimized brake and tire wear.
No wonder Ram Chassis Cabs are the go-to vehicles for dozens of vocations that require reliable performance day after day and why Work Truck Magazine voted Ram 4500/5500 Chassis Cabs the 2011 Medium-Duty Truck of the Year.

Standard on Ram Chassis Cab, the 5.7-liter Gas V8 engine delivers best-in-class standard horsepower (383 hp) and torque (400 lb-ft). Variable Valve Timing (VVT) increases power output without sacrificing fuel economy by constantly adjusting the camshaft timing based on the type of performance required
The 66RFE 6-speed automatic transmission mated to the 5.7L gas V8 offers excellent shift-performance, fuel economy, and features Electronic Range Select which lets the driver manually upshift and downshift for more precise control of the vehicle when towing or on steep grades and inclines
Standard on 4500/5550 and available on 3500, the 6.7-liter Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine produces 305 horsepower and up to 610 lb-ft of torque. This powerhouse diesel also features pilot-fuel injection and common rail architecture that make it exceptionally quiet-running. Its formidable engine block stiffness, composite valve cover, optimized accessory drive pulleys, multilayer oil pan construction and robust engine block side panels all contribute to state-of-the-art control of noise, vibration and harshness. The standard diesel exhaust brake that accompanies the Cummins Turbo Diesel performs better than the Ford F-550 according to AMCI2 testing and contributes to improved driver control, reduced brake fade and longer brake life. The engine includes a 5-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty a testament to its legendary durability, while the 7,500-mile oil-change interval helps further reduce cost of ownership
The NV271 transfer case features a floor-mounted shifter to engage 4WD operation. The 4LO range provides extra pulling power and traction in off-road situations
The NV273 electric-shift transfer case improves four-wheel drive system control by letting the driver shift the vehicle into four-wheel drive electronically and on the fly with the turn of a switch. It features a 4LO range for extra pulling power and off-road situations
The commercial-grade G56 6-speed manual transmission is standard with the 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine. Six gear ratios assure smooth acceleration and cruising. The ultra-low first gear ratio is particularly effective for launching with heavy loads or trailers.
The commercial-grade AISIN 6-speed automatic is an available option with the 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine. The AISIN provides wide ratio capability with precise ratio steps for optimum drivability. Increased fuel economy is another benefit with the use of a second overdrive ratio and reduced engine noise. The unit also features both a Tow/Haul operation mode and Electronic Range Select (ERS) to aid in trailer towing.
