The Ram 1500 is a rugged and muscular truck that is built to take on any challenge and help you haul larger items and equipment around Lavon, Fate, and Heath. And at Rockwall CDJR, we want to show you the impressive Ram 1500 towing capacity.
Various Configurations of the Ram 1500
The towing capacity of the Ram 1500 ultimately depends on how you configure your truck. So before diving into the weight that this truck can tow, we wanted to go over the various trim levels, engine options, cabs, and box lengths you can choose from when building your new Ram 1500.
The Ram 1500 comes with six different trim levels for you to select from, each coming with either the 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrain. These trim levels are the Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, Laramie, Rebel, Laramie Longhorn®, and Limited.
Cabin and Box Sizes
And depending on which trim level you get, there are a few different configurations you can have for your truck. The Ram 1500 has two cabins, the Quad Cab and Crew Cab. Both can seat a maximum of six people inside. The Quad Cab has a 6-foot 4-inch box, while the Crew Cab has the option for the same box or a 5-foot 7-inch bed.
The Ram 1500 comes standard with the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque that delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. There are also two variations of a V8 engine that are available to you in the Ram 1500.
The available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine ups the power of this truck with 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. And you can also get the available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque. This Mild Hybrid System doesn’t sacrifice any of that power while giving you better fuel efficiency.
