The Towing and Hauling Capacities of the RAM 2500

If RAM Trucks are known for one thing, it’s their muscular performance and towing capabilities, and the new RAM 2500 does not disappoint. This robust truck has brute strength and raw power under the hood, making it a reliable companion for work in Manistee. But how much can this monster tow? Read on as we explore the hauling and towing capacities of the 2024 RAM 2500 for sale at Watson’s Manistee Chrysler Inc.

Before diving into the RAM 2500 towing and hauling capacities, let’s first look at the engine options available on this heavy-duty truck. The new 2024 RAM 2500 offers two potent powertrains you can select from based on your needs. The base RAM 2500 features a 6.4-liter HEMI® V8, delivering 410 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft of torque. Manistee drivers looking for more muscle can go for the 6.7-liter Cummins® turbo diesel in-line six with 370 horsepower and 850 lb.-ft of torque. The V8 gasoline engine pairs with a quick-shifting eight speed automatic transmission, while the diesel option is mated to a six speed automatic transmission. Each model comes standard with rear wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is optional for excellent traction and control on unforgiving terrains. No matter which of the RAM 2500’s engines you choose, you are guaranteed outstanding towing performance.


The RAM 2500 is designed with serious towing in mind. With the right equipment, this truck can tow up to 19,990 pounds. So, you can easily transport heavy equipment, trailers, sailboats, campers, and other essentials to work or play. However, how much a RAM 2500 can tow depends on several factors. Here is how this truck’s towing capacity varies by engine:

Engine Maximum Towing Capacity
6.4-liter HEMI® V8 17, 730 pounds
6.7-L Cummins® Turbo Diesel 19,990 pounds


The new RAM 2500 also impresses when it comes to hauling cargo. Depending on the engine beneath the hood, it can carry up to 4,000 lbs.

Engine Maximum Payload Capacity
6.4-liter HEMI® V8 4,000 lbs
6.7-L Cummins® Turbo Diesel 3,150 lbs

Trailer tire pressure monitoring: This system monitors and alerts you of any changes in tire pressure on the trailer, ensuring optimal safety and performance.

Electronic front sway bar minimizes body roll and sway, ensuring stability and control while towing.
