So I did some quick math just to explore the rev band available on the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel.

Max Power= 240 horsepower @ 3,600 RPM (351 lb-ft of torque @ 3,600 RPM)
Max Torque= 420 pounds-feet of torque @ 2,000 RPM (159 HP @ 2,000 RPM)

Keep in mind these numbers do not factor in parasitic driveline loss.

Starting with the Max Torque 420 lb-ft @ 2000 RPM, Power equals:

Power at 2000 RPM: 159 HP

Power at 1800 RPM: 144 HP

Power at 1600 RPM: 128 HP

Power at 1400 RPM: 112 HP

Power at 1200 RPM: 96 HP

Power at 1000 RPM: 80 HP

Now, Max Power 240 HP @ 3,600 RPM, Torque equals:

Torque at 3600 RPM: 351 lb-ft

Torque at 3400 RPM: 371 lb-ft

Torque at 3200 RPM: 394 lb-ft

Keep in mind these are crude calculations, but they are a good look and what you can expect.

I have no complaints about torque here. The Ram 1500 should be able to do everything I want it to, and it should be able to do it at a pretty good pace.

430 lbs of torque is pretty good in my estimation.
For a lot of people it should be enough, it's not often you see people hauling loads often that push the towing cap to the max.
