Are you in the market for a new Ram pickup truck? A main benefit of owning a pickup truck is its towing and payload capabilities. But not every Ram truck offers the same weight maximums. In this article, we'll cover the payload and towing capacities of the Ram 1500, Ram 2500, and Ram 3500.

What is towing and payload capacity?

Towing capacity refers to the weight your pickup truck can pull behind it. Payload capacity refers to the amount of weight you can place in the truck's bed without making the bed sag.

Why does towing and payload capacity matter?

Following towing and payload weight maximums is essential to your safety on the road, as well as limiting wear and tear on your Ram pickup truck. It is possible to increase towing and payload capacities with genuine Mopar aftermarket parts and packages.
