Ram 1500 Towing Capacity
Nothing does hard work quite like a trusty pickup truck. These powerful vehicles have incredible towing capacities that no other kind of vehicle can compete with. In fact, most truck buyers in the Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton areas care about towing capacity above all else, and who can blame them?
The 2019 Ram 1500 is one of the best trucks available, but what’s its towing capacity like? Find out in our comprehensive Ram 1500 towing capacity review. Here, you’ll find all the information you need to determine whether the new Ram 1500 has the power to get the job done.
Ram 1500 Towing
There are six trim levels of the Ram 1500, each with a 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive system available. There are also three engines to choose from based on the trim level you select. The standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine will be able to tow up to 7,730 pounds.
You’ll start to see real towing power once you opt for either of the available V8 engines. The available 5.7L Hemi® V8 engine has an impressive towing capacity of 11,610 pounds, but the peak towing capacity is reached with the 5.7-liter V8 HEMI® engine with eTorque. When properly equipped, this bad boy can tow up to 12,750 pounds.
Ram 1500 Towing Features
Not only is this truck capable, but it makes towing a breeze. Having the raw strength is good, but the Ram 1500 helps you control it. One of the best features for that is the Hill Start Assist. This system detects when you’re stopped while heading uphill and holds the brakes for you a bit longer, meaning you’ll have some extra time to switch from the brakes to the gas when you’re ready to go.
The new Ram 1500 also features trailer sway control. Remember, any trailer you haul doesn’t respond directly to your steering like your truck does. It’s just being taken along for the ride. With an inability to steer it directly, trailers can start to sway, which can be dangerous. Trailer sway control eliminates this issue by automatically detecting the sway and applying brakes to compensate.
Also, the all-new Automatic Trailer Detection, a part of the Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path system, will be able to account for the length of your trailer when it scans your blind spot. This will help you safely maneuver while having equipment hitched to the back of the 2019 Ram 1500.
A trailer isn’t the only place you can carry cargo with your Ram 1500. One of the most innovative features is the available RamBox® Cargo Management System. No other truck in this class has a feature like this. You’ll have access to a hidden compartment situated within the side rails of your truck bed. Not only does this offer extra space, but it comes with organized sections and a handy light if you need access at night. It even responds to your available AllSecure® Central Locking System.
