What Is the Towing Capacity of the Ram 1500 Classic?

You'll be pleased to know that the Ram 1500 Classic has the ability to tow some hefty loads: up to 10,680 pounds-when equipped with the optional 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine-to be exact.

Speaking of engines, electing for the 5.7L brings additional perks, too, including 395 horsepower, 410 lb-ft of torque, and a max payload of 1,800 pounds. Combine this with its aforementioned towing, and you'll be able to haul boats, bikes, and trailers with ease.

The 1500 Classic standard engine is equally as impressive. Here, drivers can experience the Ram 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine, which nets 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Towing comes in at 5,020 pounds, and its payload capacity is 1,580 pounds.


Ram 1500 Classic: Towing Safety

While a truck with notable towing capacity is pretty commendable on its own, it's even better when there's an array of smart towing features added to the mix.

The Ram 1500 Classic does just that, bringing a boost of confidence to every journey. One of which is known as Electronic Stability Control. This system includes an integrated trailer hitch to securely connect your truck to your trailer, as well as Hill Start Assist and Trailer Sway Control.

Keeping your trailer in line is not only important while on the road, you'll want to keep things straight when parked, too. Thankfully, Ram has you covered with the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera and the available ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System.


Ram 1500 Classic Trim Levels

The 1500 Classic is packed full of praiseworthy design and technological advancements, all of which are dispersed among three optional trim levels: Tradesman®, Express, and Warlock. Let's meet this tough trio.

Tradesman®: This standard model is anything but ordinary, boasting a vinyl 40/20/40 split-bench front seat and a folding front armrest, making room for a maximum of six passengers. Adding the optional RamBox® Cargo Management System brings extra storage space.

Express: The Express is all about style with the available Express Black Accent Package, which includes 20-inch semi-gloss black painted aluminum wheels.
