With 5 engine options to choose from, the 2021 RAM 1500 towing capacity ranges from great to greater. So, how much can the RAM 1500 tow? Let’s take a look at how the specs break down across each of your engine options: 

Standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6

Even the base engine offered on the RAM 1500 can handle major jobs at the job site, thanks to V6 power and a dynamic TorqueFlite® eight-speed automatic transmission. Check out the specs below: 

  • 7,730-pound max towing capacity
  • 269 lb-ft of torque

Available 5.7L HEMI® V8

  • 11,610-pound max towing capacity
  • 410 lb-ft of torque
  • 395 hp

Available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6

The EcoDiesel V6 allows you to achieve best-in-class torque and takes you 190 pounds shy of the max RAM 1500 towing capacity: 

  • 12,560-pound max towing capacity
