2004 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty

For 2004, Dodge Ram Heavy Duty features a new automatic transmission for the High Output Cummins Turbo Diesel, a new "Off-Road" package and a factory-built "box off" option for the commercial market.

The 2004 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty now offers a new 48RE automatic transmission, expanding the capability of the Cummins High Output Turbo Diesel. Built to a durability test aimed directly at commercial customer use, the Ram Heavy Duty is tested in conditions ranging from -40&Mac251;F to +130&Mac251;F and running the equivalent of 150,000 miles at 95 percent of their on-the-job abuse level.

Brash, tough and delivering best-in-class power and capability, the Dodge Ram Heavy Duty took Motor Trend Truck of the Year honors with ease. Added to the proven Cummins diesel engine lineup and the most powerful standard gas V-8 available, the award-winning 5.7-liter HEMI® Magnum V-8, these enhancements solidify the Ram Heavy Duty's status as Truck of the Year.

For 2004, the Dodge Laramie package adds a new, all-chrome grille surround and chrome billet grille center to the boldest grille in town. Chrome bodyside moldings and an updated interior, with silver trim adorning the door panels and the instrument panel bezels, further distinguish the Laramie from the SLT. The Laramie edition also features a unique and more distinctive leather seat package, with higher contrast color seat inserts.

Also for 2004, UConnect(TM) hands-free cellular phone system with Bluetooth(TM) technology and a new integrated radio/navigation system are available. UConnect is an exclusive voice-activated, hands-free, in-vehicle communications system that uses a small control pad, microphone and speaker, all integrated into the rear view mirror. UConnect allows you to dial your Bluetooth-compatible wireless phone or other hands-free device through simple voice commands. UConnect mutes your radio before sending or receiving a call and allows you to store names and numbers in the system's phonebook.

Sport models receive body color side moldings and Ram adds Deep Molten Red as a new exterior color for 2004 models.

For 2004, the high-pressure common-rail injection High Output Cummins Turbo Diesel engine becomes more user friendly, adding the optional 48RE automatic transmission. Producing 305 horsepower (227 kW) at 2900 rpm and 555 lb.-ft. of torque (753 N.m) at 1400 rpm, the Cummins Turbo Diesel provides prodigious torque and a class-leading Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 23,000 lbs. A Standard Output Cummins Turbo Diesel is also available, delivering 250 horsepower (186 kW) at 2900 rpm and 460 lb.-ft. of torque (624 N.m) at 1400 rpm.

For 2004, the Magnum V-10 is dropped from the Ram lineup.

The 2004 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty offers a class-exclusive side curtain air bag system and power adjustable pedals (on both automatic and manual transmission-equipped trucks). Ram also provides standard ABS brakes, pre-tensioning and the first constant force seat belt retractors in a heavy-duty pickup truck. For 2004, Ram Heavy Duty adds standard rear-seat head restraints on Quad Cab models.

The Dodge Ram Heavy Duty is built at thr Saltillo, Mexico, and St. Louis (Mo.) North Assembly Plants.
