The Ram 1500 is a tough, reliable pickup that you can count on in just about any situation. It’s designed to get up and over anything that stands in your way and can carry lots of cargo. Just how much can it haul? Miracle Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram finds out!
To show truck lovers in Aiken and Graniteville, SC, what it’s capable of, we decided to take a closer look at the Ram 1500 towing capacity and its features.
Ram 1500 Specs
The 2022 Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds when properly equipped. With that kind of capability, you can confidently hitch a camper, boat, or a trailer full of livestock to your truck. To deliver enough power to tow that heavy cargo, the Ram 1500 runs on a 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine that features a unique eTorque Mild Hybrid Technology System. This efficient engine puts out an incredible 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.
However, the Ram 1500 offers a total of five powertrains to choose from, and each one provides you with enough horsepower to haul a trailer. For example, the available 5.7L HEM® V8 engine can tow up to 11,610 pounds, while the exciting 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine can tow up to 12,560 pounds, both when properly equipped.
From the moment you fire up the engine until you’re ready to back your trailer into place, the 2022 Ram 1500 provides you with features that make towing safe and easy. It starts by giving you plenty of visibility. The available Trailer 360-degree Surround View Camera allows you to check every angle and to perfectly line up your tow hitch.
Once you’re on the road, available Trailer Sway Control will keep everything level, while the optional Digital Rearview Mirror gives you a good look at what’s behind you, even if your trailer is high enough to block your view. You’ll also have an extra set of eyes helping you change lanes, thanks to the available Blind Spot Monitoring system with Rear Cross-Path Detection.
Once you arrive at your destination, you can unload your trailer in the right place using the available Trailer Reverse Steering Control. Just turn the knob, and the truck controls the steering for you.
Truck Bed & Payload Capabilities
With the ability to carry a payload of 2,300 pounds, the Ram 1500 can carry pretty much anything in the truck bed, too. Its durable bed also offers more cargo room than meets the eye. For example, the available RamBox® Cargo Management System turns the walls into their very own storage compartments.
They’re a great spot to store valuables, thanks to each one having its own lock. Plus, with built-in drains, you can turn them into coolers on gameday or rinse them out at any time.
Not only does the truck bed give you lots of space, but it also offers a few ways to load and unload, thanks to the available multifunction tailgate. It features a set of 60/40 split doors that can swing open individually or drop down together like a typical tailgate.
