2020 Dodge Ram 1500 Towing Capability

 

Even though the Dodge Ram 1500 just went through a significant redesign in 2019, the 2020 version improves upon greatness with not just a luxurious cabin, smooth ride, comfortable-as-a-cloud seats, and adept handling. No, the 2020 Dodge Ram 1500 goes above and beyond by introducing a new engine and offering best-in-class towing and hauling capabilities.

Regarding work capabilities, the 2020 Dodge Ram 1500 offers several engine options that determine how much the truck can tow and haul. The 2020 Dodge Ram 1500 truck comes standard with a 3.6-litre Pentastar Variable Valve Timing (VVT) V6 that delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can also upgrade to a 5.7-litre HEMI VVT V8 or a 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 on some models. The EcoDiesel engine is a game-changer for the Ram 1500, as well as the entire pickup truck class. It offers gains in fuel economy, towing, and payload and is rated at an astounding 10.5 L/100km for city driving and 7.3 L/100km for highway driving.

While the fuel economy is very impressive, many truck buyers choose the EcoDiesel V6 engine for another reason--its towing capabilities. The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel provides 480 lb-ft max torque, 5,783 kg max towing, and 1,043 max payload. This makes the 2020 EcoDiesel the most capable Ram 1500 ever produced. The 1500's competitors--the GMC Sierra, the Chevrolet Silverado, the Toyota Tundra, and the Nissan Titan--cannot meet the 1500's towing capability, even with their largest and most powerful engines. The other Ram 1500 engines are not bad at towing either. The 3.6-litre VVT provides 3506 kg of towing capability. The 5.7-litre HEMI VVT provides almost as much towing power as the EcoDiesel with a max of 5266 kg.
