Chrysler has announced a stunning 30,000 lb tow capacity for the Ram 3500 diesel. That's even more ( a lot more) than an F450 can boast!  It is powered by a 6.7L Cummins with 850 lb-ft of torque and has a new high strength frame and beefy transmission to handle the load. It will be officially shown at the North American Auto Show in Detroit starting Jan 14.

There is a bit more info here:

Hey Gary, you wouldn't know if this is just Dodge's tow rating, or a tow rating based on a real world towing test. I think I heard a while back that mfgrs were suppose to use a predetermined set of test to set the tow rating of all truck.
 
I think Chrysler is signed up to use the SAE J2807 standard tow ratings, but they may or may not have completed the actual verification testing for this truck.
