2019 Ram 1500 Towing Capacity Reviews

  • CNET: “On the road, the truck’s integrated trailer brake and sway damping control makes towing easy, even over long distances on the highway. The rear end does squat a bit with the trailer hooked up, only because my test truck doesn’t have the optional four-corner air suspension that can automatically level the pickup’s rear when it detects a heavy load.”
  • J.D. Power: “When you’ve been testing vehicles for 25 years, you know which ones are special because you miss them when they’re gone. I miss the Ram 1500, which is a tour de force of what a modern pickup should be. Ram might not lead in sales in this segment, but it certainly deserves to.”
  • Motor Trend: “A quick rundown of the spec sheet shows that the updated 1500 is still the pickup we know and love. Underneath the sharp (still mostly steel) sheetmetal is a strengthened platform that’s both lighter and stronger than before, helping to boost payload and towing capacity to 2,300 and 12,750 pounds, respectively.”
