How Much Can the Ram 1500 Tow?

2018 Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 can tow up to 10,620 lbs. Both the Ram 1500 Lonestar and Bighorn trims can be configured to reach that max towing number. There are also towing features like:

  • Hill Start Assist: Senses when your vehicle is on an incline and maintains brake pressure for you to properly accelerate.

  • Integrated Trailer Hitch: The four- and seven-pin trailer hitch wiring harness and connectors with convenient bumper integration help connect your Ram to your trailer easily.

  • Trailer Sway Control: Recognizes when the trailer might be swaying then applies brakes and/or reduces engine power to mitigate the sway.

What Does More Towing Power Mean?

The Ram 1500 offers nine trims and each of those can be further customized by bed size and drive type (4×4 or 2×4). So the Ram 1500’s towing ability ranges from about 7,000 pounds to 10,620 pounds. Things that affect a vehicle’s towing ability include: engine type, type of transmission, axles, and brakes. The 1500 model is equipped with Ram’s 5.7-Liter V8 HEMI® MDS VVT, and a 3.92 axle ratio; these factors, among others, will allow you to tow boats or cargo for your Kearney business with ease.
