A TRUCK FOR EVERY JOB
Performance. Efficiency. Intelligence. That’s strength evolved. And nowhere is it more evident than with the legendary towing and hauling capability of the Ram 1500. Smart engineering such as the available Class-Exclusive Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension or our standard Class-Exclusive TorqueFlite® 8 eight-speed automatic transmission means there isn’t much the Ram 1500 can’t do.
ACTIVE-LEVEL™ FOUR-CORNER AIR SUSPENSION
Our available Class-Exclusive Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension offers automatic load leveling and is designed specifically to help improve capability and maintain the exceptional performance Ram trucks are known for.
- Adjustable air springs allow the driver to raise and lower the vehicle to one of five ride height settings
- Dashboard controls let the driver manually adjust clearance
- Smart sensors automatically lower the truck at highway speeds to help reduce drag and increase efficiency
THE RAM TOWING GUIDETOW WITH CONFIDENCE
All our vehicles are built to haul heavy loads. With our towing guide, you can calculate capacity based on what you're hauling.
HILL START ASSIST
A heavy load can make it hard to get moving forward. Hill Start Assist detects when your truck is on an incline. The system maintains brake pressure as you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator, so your truck won’t roll backwards.
INTEGRATED TRAILER HITCH
Ram trucks are equipped with an integrated trailer hitch that seamlessly connects the truck frame to your trailer, helping to provide a safe and secure connection. Our trucks also feature a four- and seven-pin trailer hitch wiring harness and connectors with convenient bumper integration.
TRAILER SWAY CONTROL
Trailer Sway Control recognizes a swaying trailer and automatically applies individual wheel brakes and/or reduces engine power to help eliminate trailer sway.
Ram 1500 is available with multiple engine configurations.
