Ram 3500 Towing Capacity
The 2018 Ram 3500 towing capacity surpasses its more lightweight siblings, the Ram 1500 and 2500. When properly equipped, the Ram 3500 has a towing capacity of 31,210 pounds, so pack up the mobile home, hitch up the trailer, and get moving!
And if you’re pulling a few extras along, you might be wondering just how much the Ram 3500 can carry. With a maximum payload of 7,350 pounds when properly equipped, you can carry even the heaviest of supplies on to your next job site.
A little bit of technology can certainly be helpful with all of this weight to carry around, which is why the Ram 3500 features the Tow/Haul Mode Select. Working with the available Cummins® Smart Diesel Exhaust Brake System, this program allows you to carry the heaviest loads with a more aggressive downshift schedule.
