The 2019 Ram 1500 shocked truck enthusiasts and rival manufacturers alike since its announcement. From its innovative and powerful engines to its robust frame construction, the latest generation of the iconic Ram 1500 surges ahead of the competition with its ability to tow and haul large payloads with ease - all without compromising comfort. However, with three unique engines to select from, drivers throughout Columbia and Blythewood may find themselves wondering: "Just how much can the Ram 1500 tow?"

Ram 1500 Power Specifications

To learn how much the Ram 1500 is capable of towing, it's important to discover a bit more about each engine option. Two of the three options are equipped with the 48-volt mild hybrid eTorque® system, although the one option without the new system stands as a tried-and-true V8 worthy of consideration. The 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 prominently featured on previous models receives an eTorque® upgrade, resulting in 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet. The 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 exerts 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet, while the 5.7-liter HEMI®V8 with eTorque® exerts the same 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet without the addition of the supplemental eTorque® mild hybrid power that offers an additional 130 pound-feet of on-demand torque.

Towing Might

The 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 with eTorque® ultimately results in the Ram 1500's ability to tow up to 7,730 pounds. However, the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 offers drivers an additional degree of capability, confidently towing up to an impressive 11,610 pounds. For drivers in Lexington and Lugoff that require the utmost in towing ability, the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 with eTorque® can tow up to a staggering 12,750 pounds - a Best-In-Class specification for V8-equipped trucks within the segment!
