Ram Truck Towing Capacities

Since the first generation of Ram pickups rolled off the production line and onto American roads in 1981, they've been redefining the full-size pickup class. Now in its fifth generation, Ram is still considered the benchmark when it comes to capability and strength.

Whether for work or play, each model and trim is engineered to get you there and back all while supplying a high level of comfort along the way. Boasting new, high-strength steel frames along with a fleet of modern engines means you can go farther while carrying more. 

Here's how each model stacks up:
