Towing and Payload Capacities

Like we mentioned above, the 2019 Ram 1500 saw considerable changes to its overall weight which dropped by about 225 pounds. The drop in weight allowed the 2019 Ram 1500 to see significant improvements in many areas including fuel economy, road handling, and hauling performance.

Both the max towing capacities and max payload capacities have increased on the Ram 1500 for the 2019 model year which is great news for light-duty truck shoppers that may have found the previous 2018 Ram 1500 hauling abilities to be a little tight for their needs. The 2019 Ram 1500 offers a max trailer-towing capacity of 12,750 pounds when properly equipped and a max payload capacity of 2,300 pounds when properly equipped. When compared to the 2018 Ram 1500 figures, the towing capacity on the 2019 Ram 1500 has gone up by over 2,000 pounds and the payload capacity has gone up by just under 500 pounds.

The rear link coil suspension and the air suspension systems have been upgraded for the 2019 model year to offer superior performance, even with the increased hauling loads. New 2019 Ram 1500 truck owners can feel more than confident that their ride and towing equipment will remain stable and secure even over uneven terrain.
