The 2014 Ram Heavy Duty also features a factory integrated 5th wheel and gooseneck hitch mount, 2.5-inch receiver hitch, electronic stability control (ESC) for dual-rear-wheels and body-to-frame hydro-mounts that provide improved ride quality. The 2014 Ram Heavy Duty further solidifies the long list of leadership claims, including best-in-class total cost of ownership.
"The new 2014 Ram Heavy Duty capability story starts with a new frame and suspension, complemented by powerful engines to deliver top-of-segment tow capacities of 30,000 pounds on the 3500 and 17,970 pounds on the 2500," said Mike Cairns, Chief Engineer — Ram Truck, Chrysler Group LLC.

Ram Heavy Duty trucks feature frames built with high-strength 50,000 psi steel, including eight separate cross-members, hydroformed main rails and fully boxed rear rails for optimal strength and mass efficiency. Chassis controls on the new Ram Heavy Duty ensure outstanding noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) measurements and ride and handling characteristics.
Wide front frame rails enable front suspension springs to be positioned slightly outboard – an enabler for generating positive roll stiffness. A large plated structure interface to the frame brings a lengthened weld surface creating a stiff, robust front section. The design ensures optimum mass efficiency with no need for reinforcements to deliver strength, despite shape complexity. Center frame rail sections are roll-formed, an efficient means for maintaining consistent strength in less complex longitudinal sections. In the rear portion of the new frame, the structure includes fully boxed rear rails and a factory-installed rear axle cross-member with provisions for fifth wheel and gooseneck hitches.
