Ram 4500 5500 Chassis Cab
Equipped with the Class 4-5 segment’s largest standard fuel tank (52 gallons), the 2009 Dodge Ram 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs boast best-in-class fuel economy delivering up to 14 percent better fuel performance than the Ford F-550 Chassis Cab, and up to 23 percent better than the Chevy Kodiak and GMC Topkick.
“In addition to capability and maximum uptime, reducing costs is a key concern for commercial customers,” said Scott Kunselman, Vice President – Dodge Truck. “With dominant commercial-grade performance, durability and dependability, the 2009 Dodge Ram 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs not only meet the specialized needs of business customers, but does so with a work-truck that delivers the best fuel economy in the Class 4 and 5 segments.”
Ram 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs feature numerous class-leading attributes and boast a standard Cummins turbodiesel in a 6.7-liter displacement and a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. Together with class-leading brakes and pistons, a standard diesel exhaust brake system extends brake life while giving the driver increased control. With a commercial-grade frame (50,000-psi steel) to maximize strength and reduce weight, flat “clean” frame rails help facilitate ease of aftermarket upfits or retrofits.
