The Art of Towing: Factors Shaping Capacity

The towing capability of your truck doesn’t just hinge on its engines; several other factors influence how much you can hook up to your truck. From the gear ratios and transmission types to suspension setups and advanced technology features, every component plays a crucial role in towing.

Engine Selection

The engine you choose significantly affects your Ram’s towing capacity. From the workhorse V6 to the prodigious V8 options, powertrains dictate how much your truck can tow.


A smooth-shifting transmission like the 8-speed automatic can optimize the towing experience, ensuring the right power is delivered at the right time.

Suspension Systems

The rigidity and design of your truck’s suspension can enhance stability and control, especially when towing large loads.

Integrated Technology

Modern advancements like the Trailer Reverse Steering Control System available in the Ram 1500 contribute to a safer and more manageable towing operation.
