Ram 2500 Towing Capacity

Shop New Ram 2500 Models


The 2019 Ram 2500 towing capacity ranges from 10,620 to 19,780 pounds when properly equipped. This spec varies based on a number of configuration options, which we’ll discuss in detail in this Ram 2500 towing capacity review from Dallas DCJR.

Regardless of how much you need to tow in Dallas, Garland, and Arlington, there’s probably a Ram 2500 for you. Read on to learn more about the muscle this heavy-duty pickup truck offers.

Exploring the Ram 2500 Towing Capacity

Ram 2500 Towing FeaturesThe lowest towing capacity you’ll find on a 2019 Ram 2500 is 10,620 pounds on the Power Wagon. That’s because this model focuses its energy on providing an outstanding off-road experience, instead of maximizing towing capacity. For instance, trail-ready features on the 2019 Power Wagon include:

  • Manual shift-on-the-fly transfer case
  • Locking front and rear differentials
  • Disconnecting front sway bar
  • 12,000-pound winch
  • 4.10 axle ratio

Every other Ram 2500 offers at least a 14,000-pound towing capacity, which is plenty of power to haul a travel trailer. Several factors affect the towing capacity of different models. Wondering how different configurations affect towing capacity? You can use this as a general guideline:

  • Engine: The 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 can tow more than the 6.4L HEMI® V8.
  • Bed: Trucks with an eight-foot bed tow more than those with the six-foot, four-inch bed.
  • Cab: The smaller the cab, the higher the towing capacity.
  • Drivetrain: 4×2 models can tow more than 4×4 models.

So, what configuration gets you the impressive 19,780-pound towing capacity we boasted at the top of this page? If you guessed a diesel engine, eight-foot bed, regular cab, and 4×2 drivetrain, then congratulations—that’s exactly correct.

Towing Technology

This heavy-duty truck’s towing abilities get even sweeter when you factor in the available features that make towing easier.

For starters, if you want to carry a heavy fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailer, you’ll want to look for the Fifth-Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Package. This works alongside a factory-installed rear-axle crossmember to help you tow more. It includes things like:

  • Bed-mounted seven-pin connector
  • Mounting holes and covers
  • Mounting hardware

Meanwhile, an available auto-level rear air suspension offers various towing benefits. It helps prevent the rear from sagging when you’re towing a fifth-wheel or carrying a large payload. You can also use it to make hitching easier. Raise or lower the back of the truck to help line up the hitch, even on uneven surfaces.

A 360-degree Surround View Camera with Trailer Reverse Guidance View helps you back up to that hitch in the first place. It also helps you navigate job sites with ease by piecing together a picture of the area around your truck.

The Ram 2500 also offers a Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System. This feature shows the current tire pressure readings for up to twelve tires per trailer. Keep an eye on this via the Driver Information Digital Cluster Display to find out when one of your trailer tires needs more air.
