Why the RAM 1500 Is the Best Choice for Towing

October 15th, 2021 by

When it comes to sturdy, capable pickup trucks that can get the job done and offer some extra comforts at the same time, the RAM 1500 immediately comes to mind. This full-size truck has been around for longer than many drivers on the road right now, and it’s no secret why.

Its combination of rugged ability, accessible style, and near-luxury interior continue to make it a popular choice among truck drivers. And you can find the perfect one for you, right here at Twin Lakes Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM.

Why Tow Capacity Matters

Another thing that makes the RAM 1500 desirable for drivers is its tow capacity. Whether you’re pulling a trailer full of work equipment, a new camper for a long weekend away with the family, or your favorite boat for an early morning fishing trip—having a truck that can tow a significant amount as well as haul cargo in the bed is often a must.

How Much Can the RAM 1500 Tow?

The RAM 1500 has always had a significantly high tow capacity when stacked up against its competitors. While the capacity ranges depending on which of the many trim levels and customizations you choose, here are the ranges of tow capacity for the past five years:

  • 2017: 7,610 to 10,640 pounds
  • 2018: 7,600 to 10,640 pounds
  • 2019: 6,250 to 12,750 pounds
  • 2020: 7,730 to 12,750 pounds
  • 2021: 7,730 to 12,750 pounds

For the 2021 model year, the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 eTorque engine with the Quad Cab configuration gets the highest tow capacity, at just shy of 13,000 pounds—quite a feat for this pickup truck.
