How Much Can the Ram 1500 Tow?

We’ll answer that in a moment. Before we can do so, however, it’s important to take a look at the vehicle component that fuels this trucks towing prowess: its engine.

Under the hood of the Ram 1500, you’ll find your choice of four engines. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine offers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Other available engines include:

  • 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine
  • 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine
  • 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque

The 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque is the strongest of the bunch and is also the very one that provides the 1500’s towing power. When properly equipped with this optional engine, the 1500 is capable of towing up to 12,750 pounds.

That’s plenty of strength to haul your boat, trailer, bike, or anything else the day may require.
