The maximum towing capacity for the 2015 RAM 1500 is between 9,000 and 10,500 lbs., depending on the model, as noted on the RAM website. The truck is equipped with state of the art technology that allows drivers to set the suspension to one of five height settings and air shocks automatically adjust to keep a load level.

These ratings are slightly lower than other trucks on the market; the Ford F-450, GMC Sierra 1500 and the Chevrolet Silverado all can carry more, according to U.S. News & World Report.

For tutorials about towing, the RAM website has a comprehensive guide that walks new drivers through the basics of towing with specifications, common weights and a towing calculator.
