Drivers in Rapid City, Belle Fourche, and Sioux Falls can learn more about the 2019 Ram 1500 towing capacity and features with our in-depth towing review.


The 1500 comes with several engine options. The base engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. There's also a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces 395 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. Both engines can be fitted with the eTorque hybridization system that adds 90 lb-ft of torque to the V6 and 130 lb-ft of torque to the V8.

The 1500 comes with rear-wheel drive standard, but four-wheel drive is optional for all models. Regenerative braking, a system that reclaims power as electricity and takes the pressure off the engine, and short-term torque assist, which delivers a burst of extra torque when it's needed, are also fitted to the Ram engines for better performance. Properly equipped, the Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds and carry 2,300 pounds in the bed.

Safety Features

In addition to the specialized features and technology available for the Ram 1500, it can be equipped with a range of advanced safety features that enhance your towing capability, safety, and confidence.

Automatic Emergency Braking and a surround-view camera system are available, giving you a full view of the rear of your vehicle and plenty of advance notice to gradually slow your vehicle and the attached trailer, if you're too close to the vehicle ahead. Blind Spot Monitoring and Active Lane Control are also available, which protect the sides of your vehicle and alert you to other vehicles traveling in the nearby lanes.

Towing Features

Many mechanical features are available to improve the 2019 Ram 1500 capability. A standard coil-spring suspension is standard, but an air-spring suspension is available to adjust the suspension and add ground clearance to improve the fuel economy and aerodynamics. With either suspension, however, the 1500 glides over road surfaces and tackles the toughest jobs.

The off-road Rebel trim includes many performance features, such as a taller spring suspension and an electronic locking rear differential, which can also be used to improve the towing comfort and capability.
