Which RAM Trucks Are Best For Towing?
It’s no secret that RAM trucks are the standard when it comes to capability. Their rugged design, ability to feel luxurious on pavement and get you safely across rugged areas, and best-in-class towing and hauling abilities truly set them apart in the truck segment.
But which are the best models when it comes specifically to tow capacity? Here’s a breakdown from Twin Lakes Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM on which trucks are best for towing.
A popular classic, the new RAM 1500 carries many accolades in the full-size pickup segment — and it’s not hard to see why. With a wide list of trim levels to choose from to ensure you’re getting exactly the features you need; the RAM 1500 has something for everyone.
This truck allows drivers to choose from several powertrains, from V-6 and V-8 engines with hybrid assist systems to a brawny diesel V-6 that makes a whopping 480 lbs-ft of torque. The base configuration tows 6,760 pounds—but the most powerful configuration nearly doubles that figure, to an impressive 12,750 pounds.
The three-quarter ton version of this RAM truck, the RAM 2500 takes a significant step up in tow capacity. While the plainest trims add up to about 17,350 pounds of tow capacity, its beefiest configurations can pull up to 20,000 pounds with ease.
This full-ton truck blows most of its competitors out of the water when it comes to towing abilities. The RAM 3500’s tow capacity can range widely depending on the trim level, engine and powertrain, crew vs. extended cab, and more. But its maximum capacity tops out at an insane 37,100 pounds, with a payload of 7,680 pounds to match. You’d be hard put to find a more capable Dodge truck elsewhere.
