Towing Capacities of the 2021 RAM 1500

The 2021 Ram 1500 comes built with the refinement and strength you need to conquer your everyday adventures. The Ram 1500 features a standard V8 engine that can tow up to 12,750 pounds and has a maximum payload of up to 2,300 pounds. The Ram 1500 features an advanced eTorque mild hybrid system that allows you more power when needed-centred around a 48-volt battery pack. The eTorque system boots low-speed acceleration by adding up to 90-lb-ft of torque with the 3.60litre Pentastar V6 engine and 130 lb-ft of torque with the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 engine ideal for towing trailers.

The 2021 Ram 1500 comes in five different engines, including:

  • 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 Engine with eTorque
  • 5.7-litre HEMI V8 Engine
  • 5.7-litre HEMI V8 Engine with eTorque
  • 3.0-litre Ecodiesel V6 Engine
  • 6.2-litre Supercharged HEMI V8 Engine

The 2021 RAM 1500's Towing Features

The Ram 1500 truck allows buyers an array of technology, towing and safety options to tack on top of the standard features to help meet their towing needs. Heavy-duty hauling and towing becomes much easier with the suitable options equipped, plus they can help boost your max towing capacity up to the highest numbers possible. Hill Start Assist will detect when your RAM is on an incline and maintains brake pressure as you remove your foot from the brake to the accelerator, preventing the truck from rolling backwards. This feature comes standard, as do the following:

  • Trailer-Tow Power-Folding Mirrors
  • Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring
  • Electronic Roll Mitigation
  • Electronic Stability Control and Trailer Sway Control

To further assist you with hauling payload, you can opt for the multifunction tailgate with its signature 60/40-split doors. Bed access is now even more straightforward than before, thanks to the 2021 model's new available centre bed step. A 360-degree Surround View Camera System is also available to help you see what is going on around the exterior of your RAM. The camera will notify you when someone is pulling up next to you, closing in on your blind spot, or if another vehicle is trailing close behind your trailer. You also can opt for Trailer Camera Wiring and Power-Folding Tow Mirrors to help you keep an eye on your trailer and what is going on around it.

Get Expert Advice and Towing Tips

One of the biggest tips we can give you on towing is to load 60 percent of the total cargo weight near the front half of the trailer, closest to the bed. Doing so can evenly distribute weight to avoid potential accidents. You can also try putting the heaviest cargo in the middle of the trailer and surrounding it with lighter-weight items to secure it. Of course, you also need to secure all cargo as tightly as possible.

While driving, focus on how you control the vehicle and avoid too much sway. You will need a lot of room for turning and changing lanes, so give yourself extra space. Go slowly across uneven terrain since a bump could cause serious sway. And remember, when parking, get on the flattest surface possible. You will want to also be in a space that allows you to pull forward when leaving instead of backing out.
