Default The big engine that Could

For most of my life, I've had quite a number of 4 and 6 bangers because of the places I've lived overseas in the military. I spent 18 of my 22 years between Asia and Europe. I truly loved it but finally settled down back in the USA in CA. My wife and I bought a new travel trailer and a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee (our first V-8 and tow package in a vehicle). We set out with our trailer on a weekend jaunt, but after the first 6% grade with the engine over heating and oil temperature bell going off after just way up the 5 mile hill we decided that we needed something with a lot more tug.

Enter our RAM 3500 with the 6.7L Diesel, 4X4, automatic, Mega Cab Laramie and our next trip just a week later was 6800 miles and most of it in cruise with 13.6 MPG average. One 16 Mile 10% grade out of Jackson Wyoming was a walk in the park for the pickup. I'm sold on the diesel and still marvel at the power and ease of going up hill.
