Compare the towing capacities of our newest Ram pickup trucks

As one of the premier Troy, AL Ram truck dealers, knowing the ins-and-outs of all our latest Ram trucks is of the utmost importance. After all, when you're shopping for a new truck near Montgomery, AL you want to be certain that you know exactly what you're getting for your money. And perhaps the biggest concern that most new Ram truck buyers and lessees have about our models is, "How much can it tow?" Luckily, that's something we can help you explore here at our Ram truck showroom near Enterprise, AL, and Pike Road. From half-ton pickups to heavy-duty pickups, the new Ram truck lineup has pulling power in spades, and we'll help you understand which is right for your towing tasks.

The Ram 1500

Well-known for its long-term reliability, the new Ram 1500 has a whole host of powertrain options to choose from, so you can truly outfit it to suit your towing needs.

Now, with the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with eTorque, the new Ram 1500 can tow up to 7,730 pounds. This makes for a great truck for towing pop-up camper trailers, so if you're the outdoorsy sort, it'll be a great fit for you.

On the other hand, if you spring for the available 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine, you'll enjoy a significant boost to torque, putting its towing capacity up to 12,560 pounds. Alternatively, if you'd prefer to stick with a gasoline engine, the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque affords similar towing power, topping out at 12,750 pounds. In either case, these powertrains will allow the Ram 1500 to tow loads as large as a full-size enclosed trailer, which can accommodate other vehicles, tools and supplies, larger furniture, and more.

The Ram 2500

As a heavy-duty truck, the new Ram 2500 boasts a pair of stout engine options that are ideal for tackling the toughest towing tasks. A fast favorite among business clients here at our Troy, AL dealership, the Ram 2500 can take on anything from landscaping to construction.

Coming standard with a 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine, the new Ram 2500 churns out up to 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to tow up to 17,540 pounds. That's more than enough to tow a fully loaded dump trailer if need be.

On the other hand, if you prefer the power of diesel, you can choose the 6.7-liter CUMMINS® Turbo Diesel engine. This powertrain allows the new Ram 2500 to tow up to 20,000 pounds with the greatest of ease. So, if you've got a full-size toy hauler or utility trailer that needs moving, this engine will be the perfect fit for you.
