AAM Supplies Key Driveline Technology For 2019 Ram Heavy Duty And 2019 Ram Chassis Cab Trucks

AAM's all-new, larger 12-inch rear axle and either a 9.25-inch or 10.5-inch front axle are designed to enable higher gross combined axle weight and payload ratings up to a 35,100 pounds of towing capacity and 7,680 pounds of payload, said the company.

American Axle & Manufacturing has expanded its driveline system production for Ram Heavy Duty trucks, which were recently named Motor Trend Truck of the Year, and now supplies both front and rear axles as well as driveshafts for the 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty, Ram 3500 Heavy Duty, Ram 3500 Chassis Cab, Ram 4500 Chassis Cab and Ram 5500 Chassis Cab trucks.

“In addition to continuing our long-term partnership with Ram as the supplier of front and rear axles for the 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty pickup trucks, AAM is now honored to be the new supplier of front and rear axles for the Ram Chassis Cab 4500 and 5500 trucks as well our latest and most efficient driveshaft technology for the new 2019 Ram Heavy Duty pickup truck series,” said David C. Dauch, AAM chairman and CEO. 

For the new vehicles, AAM and Ram engineers worked to improve durability, handle payload and towing capabilities and minimize noise, vibration and harshness all while optimizing efficiency and reducing weight in the driveline system.  AAM’s all-new, larger 12-inch rear axle and either a 9.25-inch or 10.5-inch front axle are designed to enable higher gross combined axle weight and payload ratings up to a 35,100 pounds of towing capacity and 7,680 pounds of payload, said the company.
