Ram Truck Towing Guide For Drivers in Ajax, Ontario

2021 Ram 1500 Limited

Village Chrysler is the preferred Chrysler Jeep Ram dealership in Ajax, Ontario, serving Pickering, Whitby and Oshawa. We have an extensive Ram inventory, and we can help you understand which truck you need for your purposes.

Which Ram Do You Need? Factors to Consider

The towing capabilities of your truck depend on several factors. Cab size and box length can both limit your towing capacity because they make a truck heavier. The heavier it weighs and the more passengers it has to carry, the less weight it can tow. Your wheel drive system is also a factor that affects your total towing capacity. Four-wheel-drive systems are heavier than two-wheel drives, but they offer greater control when driving on slick or uneven surfaces.

The Capacities of Different Ram Models

We offer three models of Ram trucks to cater to all needs. The Ram 1500 is an excellent general-use full-size truck. This model is very well-suited to everyday use and capable of hauling and towing some pretty heavy jobs. The Ram 2500 has more power and is better suited for professional services such as the construction trade. The Ram 3500 HD is the most powerful, making it your best choice if you plan to do heavy vehicle towing.

Ram 1500 Towing Guide

The Ram 1500 features multiple engine offerings with different towing capacities available for the truck. The standard engine is the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 Engine with eTorque, which provides a maximum towing capacity of 7,730 lbs. For maximum towing capacity, you can upgrade to the 5.7L HEMI® V8 Engine with eTorque, capable of towing as much as 12,750 lbs. This engine is also available without eTorque, which reduces its capacity slightly to a maximum of 11,610 lbs.

The Ram 1500 is also available with two new engine types. The 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 Engine offers great hauling capacity without sacrificing much towing capacity, maxing out at 12,560 lbs. The Ram 1500 TRX has a powerful 6.2-litre supercharged V8 rated at 702 horsepower. Still, this vehicle is designed primarily for off-roading, and its towing capacity is rated lower, at a maximum of 8,100 lbs.
