2022 RAM 2500 Towing a Boat
The Ram 2500 is the truck New Carlisle drivers rely on for the really heavy jobs. So, how much can a RAM 2500 tow? The maximum 2022 RAM 2500 towing capacity is a massive 20,000 pounds when properly equipped. Let’s take a closer look at how much this truck can tow (and what a RAM 2500 can tow), the RAM 2500 payload capacity specs, and how to configure yours to reach the 20,000-pound towing maximum.



How Much Can a RAM 2500 Tow, Exactly?

The exact 2022 RAM 2500 towing capacity depends on how you equip your truck. For instance, the choice of engine, bed size, and drivetrain all affect its capabilities, with its range of towing capacities starting at 9,470 pounds. So, how much can a RAM 2500 tow when equipped with the V8 engine as opposed to the diesel? The towing capacity of the gas-powered RAM 2500 6.4 V8 gas engine maxes out at 17,540 pounds, while the 6.7L I6 Cummins Turbo Diesel engine can get you to that maximum 20,000-pound capacity.

How to Equip Your Truck for the Maximum 2022 RAM 2500 Towing Capacity

Choosing the right combination of engine, box length, drivetrain, and axle ratio options for the RAM 2500 will result in the 20,000-pound towing capacity. That combination is: the diesel engine, the 8-foot box, 4×2 drivetrain, and 3.73 axle ratio.
