2020 RAM 1500: Powerful Towing for Your Biggest Tasks


A Truly Powerful Truck

The RAM 1500 has long been an exceptional vehicle with numerous built-in features and exceptional towing capacity. The 2020 RAM 1500 is impressive, providing 12,750 pounds of towing capacity. For most drivers, that’s an excellent level of pulling power for a trailer or other pull-behind vehicle. Though there are several variances among engine types, this vehicle provides the level of hard work most need.

A Powerful Engine

The 2020 RAM 1500’s available 5.7-L HEMI V8 engine is what gives this vehicle its high level of towing. This is enhanced by the eTorque hybrid technology that’s available on this year’s model. RAM states that this applies only when the vehicle is properly equipped to reach this towing capacity. Still, with the best model engine offering 12,750 pounds of towing power, that’s enough to get the job done with ease.

Onboard Towing Technology

The ability to tow heavy loads is important, but it is also important to have the technology available to make the process of trailering easy. The 2020 RAM 1500 provides this through several tech upgrades. Key here is the blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-path and automatic trailer detection. This tech makes it easy to change lanes while you are pulling something behind you, eliminating the blind spot virtually completely. It also has an automatic trailer detection to help by sensing the presence of a trailer and the length of it, allowing for better lane management. LaneSense Lane Departure Warning – Plus also is an available tech upgrade. It minimizes unintentional lane drifts by providing drivers with a visual alert when the vehicle is moving out of the lane and then guides the vehicle back into the proper position. Other available tech features including available forward collision warning with advanced brake assist, and smart cruising. It also features ParkView Rear Back Up Camera, which makes it easy to hook up your trailer to your truck so you can get on the road faster.

Built to Handle the Weight

The RAM 1500 comes with built-in structural features to help minimize any risks to the body of the vehicle when towing. The Class-Exclusive Active-level Four Corner Air Suspension solution is one of the more advanced ways it does this. It helps to automatically lower the truck when you are moving at highway speeds. This helps to minimize the amount of drag on the vehicle to improve efficiency.

Other Engine Options

For those unsure if they need the largest engine available, the 2020 RAM 1500 comes with several other options. The 5.7-L HEMI V8 engine (without eTorque) provides 11,610 pounds of towing capacity. For RAM 1500, towing capacity on the 3.6-L PENTASTAR V6 engine with eTorque, ist 7,730 pounds. The base model, with its 3.0-l EcoDiesel V6 engine provides 7,730 pounds of towing capacity as well.

There’s no doubt the RAM 1500 is a powerful truck for just about any tasks you have in mind.
