How Much can a 2020 RAM 1500 Tow?

The Ram 1500 was made to be a strong, capable, and reliable truck for the working man or woman. Though technically light utility, the 1500 has best-in-class V8 engine towing, with a capacity of up to 12,750 pounds. This means that the 1500 provides maximum payload for the toughest of jobs. Here’s how the 1500 gets it done:

High-Strength Steel Frame

98% of the steel used in the frame is high-strength steel, assisting with stiffness and durability to help deliver impressive towing as well as up to 2,300 pounds of payload.

eTorque

The new, revolutionary eTorque Mild Hybrid System replaces a conventional alternator on an engine with a 48-volt battery-powered, belt-driven motor generator that assists performance, payload, efficiency, drivability, and towing capacity. The 1500 has two different engine options that include eTorque. These engines include the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine with eTorque, and the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with eTorque.

Multifunction Tailgate

And as icing on the cake, Ram also delivers versatility with its new multifunctional tailgate. Engineered with a 60/40 split, it offers more ways to access the bed while still being able to handle large loads. The split, swing-away doors accommodate forklift loading and open 88 degrees, making it easier to step up, load heavy items, and unload and clean out the bed. 

If you want a truck that is made for work, then the Ram 1500 is for you. If you’d like a test drive, or just want to learn more about it, come on down and our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you out!
