Ram 1500 Towing Technology

The Ram 1500 doesn’t achieve its bench-setting towing capacity through brute strength alone; a lot of smart tech and design goes into making this modern truck a towing master. Take, for instance, the eTorque Mild Hybrid Technology System. This innovative addition simultaneously increases overall driving range while delivering extra torque to all four tires.

Once you approach cruising speed, the Active Air Dam located beneath the front bumper automatically extends to reduce wind drag. Up top, you’ll find an elevated hood design that directs air up and over the sculpted roof, making the Ram 1500 ultra-aerodynamic.

Of course, it’s not just about reaching your destination, it’s also about enjoying the journey. That’s why Ram offers the available Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension. This system delivers an ultra-smooth ride and automatically lowers the truck bed, making it easier to hitch up a trailer and go.
