We Drive 800 Miles in the New 2019 RAM 3500: Here's How Fuel Efficient 1000 lb-ft of Torque Is!May 30, 2021
we have a big truck and this is a cross country road trip MGP circuit, that's right, we're going from Las Vegas to Boulder Colorado, yeah, and this is a high performance
3500with 1,000 lb-ft of
torque, let's see how it navigates the highway and what efficiency can we get empty, same old procedure, let's fill up, wait 30 seconds and fill 30 seconds, they'll give you time t
here, very good, she's full, okay, any time, it's turkey. time, Paisley Grass Fed Beef messes up way better than French fries, well we have to have it and guys check it out using the link below, they are a partner of ours and we love this snack on road trips, it's the ideal to carry. the road and it's good and it's wet and they're based in Utah, w
herewe're driving right now, they also have steak and everything else better for later.
Where do you use Nik? These 6.7 liter Cummins are new, they have been completely redesigned for
2019, yes I mean even the materials they used to build the blog are there, everything is good, yes they saved some weight and overall they are supposed to the trunk is about 140 pounds lighter than before when you consider the body components, the engine, the frame, that's a little bit lighter and made of ultra high strength steel, but what else did they do to improve the efficiency? They say maybe eight to ten percent. Well, one of the things that they did was they put shutters on all the heavy duty ones that are just behind the grill and basically those shutters will activate and that helps the aerodynamics of the vehicle and also the benefit is that those grills will close and close when The vehicles will heat up in a cold environment and will heat up, yes, and they also worked very carefully with the chin spoiler.
More Interesting Facts About,
we drive 800 miles in the new 2019 ram 3500 here s how fuel efficient 1000 lb ft of torque is...
Yes, I talked to the guys at RAM and they told me that even the new Power Wagon has an updated spoiler, but they tried to lower it a bit without compromising approach angles. right, that's a big thing, aerodynamics is still a huge component, but we want to establish this baseline here with this truck and see how it compares to the trucks that we will test in the future for each task that is correct and so far, for right, guys. we're averaging over 14
milesper gallon which is 1443 well yeah right now it's 1443 that's really good here we are Green River it's fabulous Green River you know CCR's Green River song was about this place, oh, not really, but it's not like that.
It doesn't look green so we've done almost 400
miles, the computer says 15.3, yeah that's because we just came down from a really long descent so that's pretty good, let's see what the pump says and then we'll do it again. On the way to Denver, I know buddy, okay, here's a first gas stop, you better find out what the pump says, not just what the computer said, which was fifteen point three fifteen point three. That's awesome because it means you know we drove 400 miles. We still had about 80 left according to the computer, so as many as eighty as possible in a tank.
I mean, I wish it had a bigger tank, but that's what I'm going to leave as the biggest deficit because the competition specifically for it has a bigger tank, yeah. twenty-six point eight five eight three ninety-eight point four divided by twenty-six point eight five eight fourteen point eight fourteen point eight okay, which is a little bit close to what the computer said within half an mpg, yeah, yeah, that Not bad for a giant pickup truck So far so good, but keep in mind that we are about to climb some very big mountains. Well, let's continue. Yes, this is limited.
Yes, this is the next level. Basically on this truck with a couple of small modifications, it has a 360 degree camera adaptive cruise, but we have two crews, it's not ultra smooth, I mean, it works well following your vehicle, that works pretty well, but as soon as you change lanes the system seems a little confused about which vehicle you are supposed to follow, yes it might be a little smoother than this truck as you see it here with all the options, I mean the steps electric folding sunroof with a 12-inch screen eighty-seven thousand eight. one hundred and ten dollars, that's a lot of money, but it's actually also competitive, yeah, if you look at the high-end Ford Uli's, I mean there's a price, if not a little bit higher, than this one, so It is competitively priced and common. -6 great reviews of Cummins engines, yes they are known for their efficiency so we will see how it works now.
This is the high performance offset, so it makes 400 horsepower, 9000 computers or yeah, REM says they shit on the headlights and this. The truck has automatic high beams on the right and, according to RAM, the power is higher in the headlights but also in its indicators, so let's see if we can notice that yes, the outer section of the headlights is supposed to be able to move up to 15 degrees. right, yeah, about, look, they said and I can see they're moving a little bit, so you've got the lights on the road, it's definitely an improvement. I think we made it to Denver, yeah, actually it's 50 miles plus 400 miles, that's 750 miles we did. that's impressive it's actually 350 1.7 and the computer is currently saying sixteen point two which includes going over the Rocky Mountains from Utah which means we went up we lost some mpg and down we gained some so I'm really curious to know What is going to happen.
If we average everything, I'm impressed so far, so let's see, okay, let's get the number that neither we nor the speed averaged, so because these are real world tests, people keep asking us speeds where are you going, etc. , so total distance. from Las Vegas it was 750 miles, yeah, divided by ten point six hours, about ten and a half hours, a little over seventy miles an hour, that's pretty good. Keep in mind that there were long stretches that reached 80 miles per hour, so between that and, frankly, we didn't lose speed on any hills and we didn't stop big thousand pound-feet of
torque, come on, we ended up 350 1.7 miles divided by twenty-three point one seven six one seven six is equal to fifteen point two so the computer was optimistic, yes, it was being very optimistic last time, it was a little optimistic, yes, now it's actually even more optimistic, it's still a good number, like this which is okay, let's average the two from last time, so fifteen point two plus fourteen point eight fifteen, even if I'm correct, when we did the Power Wagon with that big v8, that thing was closer, there's like thirteen, yeah, The previous one, yes, the old Ramón, the oldest, yes, so this has much more weight, more tires, more resistance, more of everything, the diesel ones. doing efficiency right actually okay let's get in the cab before we freeze let's get up and get back to thr.com from annie's visa and real world reviews and real world mpg reviews yeah for Of course, that's all, that is, you can't get more. real yeah I'll make sure it's beaver hell yeah and it's also fresh and made daily so it's good yeah yeah fresh beaver tacos you kids make this stuff up.
