What Can You Haul with the 2022 Ram 1500?

Many drivers find the capabilities of the standard 3.6L V6 engine to be enough to take their camper, motorboat, or jet skis along with them. However, if you need a little extra brawn for bulkier items, consider one of the available motors.

When properly equipped, you'll be able to haul the following:

  • A 2-horse trailer for an out-of-town show
  • A large camper for a camping trip with your family
  • A large boat for a thrilling afternoon on the water with friends
  • A utility trailer heavily loaded with building supplies and bulky tools
  • Hefty equipment to lend a hand with worksite demands

Ram 1500 Towing Technology

There are also a number of available systems to choose from that will work hard to make sure you'll have a smooth and controlled ride when towing.

These include…

  • Trailer Reverse Steering Control: Includes a Trailer Steering Knob, so you can guide your trailer while moving backward.
  • Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension: A class-exclusive system that automatically lowers your truck when approaching highway speeds or when loading up, so you can quickly attach your trailer and hit the open road.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection: Scans the surroundings of your truck and trailer and alerts you when there's a car in your side blind zones, so you'll know when it's safe to change lanes.

Additionally, there are technologies in the 2022 Ram 1500 that can help with everything from attaching your trailer to making everyday maneuvers while towing.

The ParkView® Rear Back-Up Camera displays a video feed on the touchscreen in the cabin when you switch into Reverse. This is helpful when lining up your hitch since you can clearly see the path as you back up toward your trailer.

For an even greater view, arm your Ram 1500 with the available 360° Surround View Camera. It places cameras all around the exterior of your truck to provide a complete bird's-eye view of your surroundings. This makes navigating your pickup and trailer into tighter spaces easier and hitching up your trailer a quicker process.

Ram 1500 Hauling Capacity and Bed

On top of being able to tow a lot of weight, the bed of the Ram 1500 can haul its fair share of gear, too.

The payload capacity reaches 2,300 pounds, allowing you to throw heftier materials into the bed of your truck or load up some dirt bikes.

Add in the available multifunction tailgate, and you'll be able to load and unload cargo quickly. The 60/40 split swing-away doors open side to side or can lower down vertically as a typical tailgate does to help you reach the cargo in your bed even with a trailer attached.

To make sure every item has its place, you can opt for the available RamBox® Cargo Management System. It places two lockable and drainable boxes on the exterior of your cargo bed, so width is not affected. These storage systems can be used for smaller tools or turned into a cooler for tailgating-the possibilities are endless!
