Before buying your next truck, it's important to know what it's capable of. We want nothing more than for Watkins Glen, Elmira, and Corning drivers to fall in love with their next truck. That's why we've put together this Ram 1500 towing capacity guide.

After you've read this helpful towing info from the team at Maguire Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) of Watkins Glen, you'll be fully prepared for the long haul.

Make Every Tow Count

It's time to tow with confidence. This full-size truck offers outstanding towing capabilities, whether you outfit it with the 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine or equip it with the 3.6L Pentastar V6. Regardless of the engine you have, you'll be fully prepared to handle all the heavy loads.

Add on the Max Tow Package, which includes a 10-inch axle, rear stabilizer bar, and trailer-tow mirrors, and you'll be able to tow up to 12,750 pounds in the 2020 Ram 1500. Ram engineers have worked hard to reduce the weight of this truck, too, making sure every load counts. With a 2,300-pound max payload, you have everything you need to get the heavy lifting done.

Whether your Ram 1500 is used around the home, or you're relying on it to be a part of your business fleet of vehicles, it's easy to see what makes this truck unique. The Ram 1500 is always ready to tow.

Smart Ram Towing Technology

Tow that next load with confidence thanks to the various Ram 1500 features that are available.

Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection is one of them. This lets you know when another driver is in your blind spot, while automatically sensing the length of your attached trailer to ensure you're able to make every move with complete confidence.

Optional LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning-Plus prevents unintentional lane drifting. You'll see a visual alert right in front of you, letting you know that the Ram 1500 needs to be guided back to its lane.

Get 360-degree awareness through the Surround View Camera. Strategically positioned sensors work with the cameras mounted on various spots on the vehicle, giving you the big picture before making that next maneuver.

Ram Makes Your Life Easier

The available multifunction tailgate offers numerous ways to gain access to the bed area, allowing you to keep your options open.

If you're carrying larger, bulkier items, swing open the 60/40 split doors without reaching or sliding over a traditional tailgate. The 60/40 split swing-away doors are also designed to be unobstructed by most trailers, providing easy access to cargo.

In addition, available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go functionality detects cars up ahead and can adjust the Ram 1500 to brake if traffic is slowing down. Protect yourself (and your trailer) every time you take the wheel.
