How Much Can a RAM 2500 Tow?

The towing capacity of the 2021 Ram 2500 partially depends on its engine. To reach that high towing limit, you need a muscular engine under the hood. Thankfully, the 2021 Ram 2500 comes with a choice between two powerful engines. So that you can see which engine is the best option for your Washington job site, we’ve listed the engine specs for both options: 


6.4L HEMI® V8 Engine: 

  • 410 of horsepower
  • 429 lb-ft of torque
  • 17,540 pounds of towing capacity
  • 4,010 pounds of payload capacity
  • 8-speed automatic transmission


6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6:

  • 370 horsepower
  • 850 b-ft of torque
  • 19,680 pounds of towing capacity
  • 3,160 pounds of payload capacity
  • 6-speed automatic transmission 


Depending on your priorities one engine might be better than the other. If you prefer speed, then the 6.4L engine is the better choice with its higher horsepower, but if you need extra strength for that tough job, then the 6.7L engine will be the one for you.
