RAM Towing Highlights
Whether you’re heading to Marshall for some building supplies or you’re off for a day of outdoor adventure, the RAM 1500 can help you bring all the gear you need:
- Gas Capability: Drivers can choose from a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that delivers 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque or the 5.7L HEMI V-8 engine for 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque with up to 10,620 pounds of towing capability.
- Diesel Power: The available 3.0L Eco-Diesel V6 engine generates 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. This engine delivers best-in-class fuel economy of as much as 27 mpg/highway and an available towing capacity of as much as 7,920 pounds.
Other Performance Perks
Powerful engines are only part of the story. Longview drivers can also look forward to a variety of innovative features that make controlling your cargo that much easier too:
- Torqueflite Transmission: The standard eight-speed automatic transmission with Thermal Management System optimizes transmission fluid temperature for improved control and reduced wear.
- Hill Start Assist: The advanced hill start system detects when the vehicle is on an incline and maintains brake pressure for a few seconds after the driver releases the brakes. This extra braking support prevents the vehicle and its load from rolling backward.
- Integrated Trailer Hitch: The standard integrated hitch system connects the truck’s frame to the trailer for better weight distribution and safer, more secure connection pulling power.
- Factory Installed Wiring Harness: A four and seven-pin trailer hitch wiring harness with bumper integration provides additional peace of mind and lets drivers connect and get on the road faster.
- Trailer Sway Control: The system monitors the trailer’s travel and can automatically apply individual brakes or reduce engine power to better control unruly cargo.
