Ram has increased the towing capacities and gross combination weight rating (GCWR) for its 3500, 4500, and 5500 chassis cab trucks for the 2017 model year, Ram has announced.

The tow capacities and GCWR increase 1,000 pounds each. Ram will also offer an optional LED tail lamp and standard five-micron cabin air filter.

The max trailering weight for 2017 increases to 23,770 pounds for the Ram 3500, 25,650 pounds for the Ram 4500, and 30,600 for the Ram 5500. The GCWR increases to 31,000 pounds for the Ram 3500, 33,500 pounds for the Ram 4500, and 38,500 pounds for the Ram 5500.

The chassis cab trucks are available in three trim levels, including Tradesman, SLT, and Laramie. Regular or crew cab trucks offer cab-to-axle lengths of 60, 84, 108, and 120 inches.

Engine options carry over, including a choice between the 6.4L HEMI V-8 and 6.7L Cummins diesel inline-6. The diesel offers 15,000-mile oil change intervals. The trucks offer a 74-gallon fuel tank and optional 22-gallon auxiliary tank.
