Four, No Five, Engines

With a handful of robust engines to choose from, you can count on your Ram 1500 to deliver. The standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine generates 305 horsepower with 269 lb-ft of torque to give you satisfaction in towing.

For the most force to get your Ram going, the available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine generates 260 horsepower with 480 lb-ft of torque. Aside from one other engine, this ranked as the best-in-class diesel torque force of nature.

This truck features two 5.7L HEMI® V8 engines. One provides eTorque while the other does not. Still and all, they both give you plenty of power and generate 395 horsepower with 410 lb-ft of torque.

For a spectacular amount of power, you’ll do well with the Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8 engine in the TRX trim. It generates 702 horsepower with 650 lb-ft of torque to skyrocket you toward your destination.

Towing Capacity Extremes

Now let’s get to the nuts and bolts of this story. If you’re sticking with the 3.6L engine, it offers a maximum towing capacity of 7,730 pounds. For the absolute top of the line, the available 5.7L engine hauls a maximum of 12,750 pounds.

If you’re considering the other available engines, you’ll find a range between these two extremes. Consider what you want and pick your engine and towing capacity.

One of the trims, the Tradesman, offers the maximum payload of 2,320 pounds. This trim also uses 4×2 capability.

Some standard systems will let you handle your trailer with ease. You’ll be able to use Trailer Brake Control and Trailer Sway Control to keep your trailer on track and under your command.

Rein in your trailer by adding Trailer Reverse Steering Control. This provides you with a dial to turn in the direction that you want your trailer to go. You won’t need to exit your truck to move it where you want it.

Even with your trailer secured, you’ll still get all the visibility you need. The optional Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection depicts those harder-to-see areas, so you can safely maneuver both truck and trailer.
