Consumers regard Dodge Ram trucks as having very good towing performance that compares well to or exceeds that of competitors from Ford or General Motors. For example, the 2015 Ram 3500 can tow up to 30,000 pounds when properly equipped, the highest capacity in its class.
While the individual towing capacity of a given Dodge or Ram truck varies by model and equipment, they are usually comparable to similarly equipped trucks from other manufacturers. However, there is some controversy as to the proper testing procedures for truck towing weights. For example, while parent company Chrysler conforms to testing standards set out by the Society of Automotive Engineers, Ford claims a towing capacity pickup of over 31,000 pounds for its F450 pickup from a non-standard test procedure.
