The four latest DeWALT high-torque cordless drills (as of August, 2019)
The Dewalt DCD777C2 features a 20V brushless motor capable of putting out over 500 in-lbs of torque while being just around the average length for cordless drills, at 7.52 inches and offering 15 clutch settings among other specs.
The DeWALT DCD996P2 has a brushless motor that can reach a peak torque of 1029 in-lbs and 2000RPM. Powered by DeWat's 20v Max XR premium batteries, the cordless drill has three variable speed settings, but it only has 11 clutch settings.
The DeWalt DCD985M2 features an all-metal transmission system that gives users 3 variable speed settings. Powered by DeWalt's 20v Max XR Lithium-Ion battery, this cordless drill has a rated high BPM of 34,000, a high RPM of 2,000, and a peak torque of 521. Other specs include a Unit Watts Out rating (DeWalt's own metric) of 535 and 22 cluch settings.
Weighing a below-average 36.8 ounces, the Dewalt DCF815B impact driver walks around with three LED work lights, a 1/4-inch hex chuck (1-inch tips can also be used), and a belt hook, but misses out on a battery and a charger (purchased separately).

The 3-speed DeWALT DCD792's drill driver Bluetooth feature and app makes it possible to perform diagnostics and tool tracking, while the LED indicator on its 2Ah Lithium Ion batteries can inform users if the drill is due for a recharge or battery replacement (Other specs include a 2000RPM and 15 clutch settings).
Featuring a half-inch ratcheting chuck, an LED work light with three modes, and a 360-degree side handle, the Dewalt DCD991P2 drill driver wields a brushless motor that yields a rather-high 2000 high no-load RPM, but its 11 clutch settings is one of the lowest we have encountered so far (as of 2016).
The DCD795D2 20V hammerdrill's brushless motor is powered by 2Ah Max XR Compact Li-Ion Batteries that have LED Fuel indicators. The LED is placed near the foot of the drill to prevent chuck shadows from affecting the user's view.
The DeWALT DCD796D2's LED spotlight is designed to help users work under low-light conditions for an extended amount of time. Dewalt also claims that the brushed motors and XR Li-Ion last longer than brushed motors and NiCad batteries, respectively.
The 15-clutch-setting Dewalt DCD791D2 drill driver flaunts a brushless motor and a 20-minute LED spotlight mode, while carrying a 20V MAX battery that can be used by other Dewalt 20V MAX tools, a hard kit box, and a belt hook.
While its batteries need to be purchased separately, the 15-clutch setting Dewalt DCD791B compact drill driver might redeem itself by featuring a 1/2-inch metal chuck, a belt hook, a 6.9-inch length, and a 3-mode LED that has a 20-minute shutoff function.
Banking on a 1/2-inch keyless chuck, an LED light that has a 20-second delay, and a 2-speed motor that yields a 2000 high no-load RPM, the 15-clutch-setting Dewalt DCD790D2 seems to veer away from the heavier drill drivers, as suggested by its slightly-below-average 41.6-ounce weight.
Showing off a 3-speed 350-UWO motor and featuring a side handle, a 1/2-inch chuck, and an extra 20V MAX battery, the 22-clutch-setting Dewalt DCD980M2 drill driver does not seem to look very lightweight with its 83.2-ounce weight.
Five DeWALT 18v cordless drills
With a hard carrying box and an extra 18V battery included in its bundled version (DC720KA), the 17-clutch-setting Dewalt DC720 cordless drill, with its 14.75-inch length and 76.8-ounce weight, does not look like a very compact drill, at least when compared to most drills we have seen so far.
Outfitted with a half-inch keyless chuck, an additional 18-volt battery with a 60-minute charging time, and a hard storage case, the 17-clutch-setting Dewalt DC759KA drill driver tags itself as somewhat-hefty with its 75.2-ounce weight.
And two of their 16-to-18-bottle wine coolers
Showing off a 3-yearwarranty and a charger that regulates battery temperature while charging, the 16-clutch-setting Dewalt DCD771C2 cordless drill driver bets on its single-sleeve ratcheting chuck and comes with its own (fabric) carrying case.
