Get to Know the RAM 3500


The RAM 3500 is well-established as your best option for towing in the industry. You can choose from three trim levels as well as three engines. Before we get into the RAM 3500 towing, you should know some basics about this heavy-duty truck from Massey Yardley. 


Meet the Engines – And Their Towing Capacities


It should go without saying that the RAM 3500 towing capabilities depend on the engine that you choose. As such, it’s best to look at its capacities with each engine one at a time. 


6.7-Liter High-Output Cummins Turbodiesel I6 – Tows 37,090 Pounds


If you want the best-in-class diesel towing and best-in-class diesel torque from the RAM 3500, go with this 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel engine. This engine works with a fully electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission from Aisin. That transmission was upgraded to boost durability and reduce noise, vibration, and harshness. It also has new software control to deliver seamless shifting. 


But what are the figures? 


This engine can tow up to 37,090 pounds or handle a payload of up to 6,570 pounds. It delivers 420 horsepower and a whopping 1,075 pound-feet of torque. Remember that those are the best-in-class diesel figures for both towing and torque. 


6.7-Liter Cummins Turbodiesel I6 – Tows 22,679 Pounds


This version of the 6.7-liter turbodiesel is another solid option, and it comes with a six-speed automatic. You get gear ratios on the transmission that were optimized for this engine. You also get the low noise, harshness, vibration, and responsive performance of the high-output version. 


With this 6.7-liter Cummins engine, the RAM 3500 towing capacity is 22,670 pounds, or it can haul up to 6,840 pounds. While it doesn’t have quite the output of the high-output version, it still generates 370 horsepower and an impressive 850 pound-feet. 


6.5-Liter HEMI V-8 – Tows 18,210 Pounds


Prefer a gas engine? This is the legendary HEMI, and it comes standard. It gives you the best-in-class standard horsepower of 410, along with 429 pound-feet of torque. It works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This engine lets you tow 18,210 pounds or haul up to 7,680. You still get more than enough RAM 3500 towing capacity for most people.
