If you’re looking for a heavy-duty truck with strong towing capabilities, whether it is for your work or personal needs around Winter Haven, Lakeland, and Bartow, you probably have come across the Ram 2500.
Here at DCJR of Winter Haven, we want to show you how you can configure this heavy-duty truck to give you the towing capacity you need as well as the other ways it can help you haul your equipment, supplies, and more.
A good way to gauge how much a truck can tow is to see how much power is supplied by its engine. Under the hood of the 2019 Ram 2500 sits either the standard 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine or the available 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 engine.
With the 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine, the Ram 2500 pushes out 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. This engine will give you tremendous strength to tow thousands of pounds of weight.
The maximum towing capacity of the 2019 Ram 2500 is achievable when the truck is powered by the available 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 engine. With 370 horsepower and 850 lb-ft of torque, this engine helps give the Ram 2500 a towing capacity of 19,780 pounds.
The technology of the Ram 2500 also helps you tow all of that weight with ease. The available Rear Auto-Level Air Suspension has a Bed Lowering Mode that brings the rear suspension down lower to make it easier to hook up your trailer.
You can also back up your 2019 Ram 2500 perfectly in line with your trailer using the Trailer Reverse Guidance View, which is a part of the available 360° Surround View Camera.
The Ram 2500, with its high-strength steel frame, can also handle a lot of weight within its cabin and bed. With a payload capacity of 4,050 pounds, you’ll be able to load your tools or gear in the bed of the Ram 2500 as well.
You can also choose between a 6-foot, 4-inch bed or a longer 8-foot bed with the Ram 2500. There are even other features you can add to make your job easier. The available power release tailgate lets you access the bed of your truck with the push of a button.
With available LED bed lighting, you’ll be able to safely see and work even when the sun goes down. More storage for your tools and other supplies can be added with the RamBox® Cargo Management System, which will help you stay organized.
In addition to being able to tow your boat, heavy equipment, and more around Winter Haven, Lakeland, and Bartow, the Ram 2500 has plenty of other features to give you a safe and comfortable ride.
