RAM Towing 1500 vs. 2500 vs. 3500

Ram is known for designing some of the meanest, strongest, most heavy-duty and rugged pickups on the road today. The Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 are three of the most recognizable pickups from Ram’s lineup. The three pickups feature a rugged design and make enough power to bring your wildest dreams to life. The most noticeable thing about 1500, 2500 and 3500 that help them stand out from the crowd, however, is their superior towing capacity. These three behemoths have set new standards in towing. We, in this post, compare the towing capacity of the Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 in Lexington.

Ram 1500
Thanks to a monstrous 5.7-liter HEMI engine with torque that makes 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, the Ram 1500 does not break a sweat while towing heavy loads. The pickup has a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds. The truck’s maximum rated payload is 2,300 pounds. To help tow with confidence, the 1500 comes with Active Level Four Corner Air Suspension with automatic load leveling. The class-executive suspension is able to reduce drag to a significant extent by decreasing the vehicle’s speed when driving on unpaved terrain. The suspension also helps avoid inconvenience when loading and unloading cargo.

From dirt bikes to big boats, the 2500 can tow almost anything. The Ram 2500 comes with an auto-level rear air suspension that can balance heavier loads and is designed to avoid alignment issues between your truck and trailer. The 2019 Ram 2500 comes with a class executive WARN ZEON-12 Winch with a rated capacity of 12,000 pounds.
