The 2022 RAM 3500 towing capacity tops out at 37,090 pounds, and that makes this pickup one of the strongest work trucks available in Columbia or Lawerenceburg. If you’re ready to get more done without compromising on features or comfort, then rest assured that you’re right where you’re supposed to be!

 

 

2022 RAM 3500 Towing Capacity & Engine Options

As we noted above, a properly equipped RAM 3500 can tow up to 37,090 pounds. However, not all RAM 3500 configurations can reach that upper limit. So, how much can a RAM 3500 tow in each configuration?

If you need a truck that can go the distance, choosing the right engine should be your first priority:

  • 6.4L HEMI® V8 (Gas): Tow up to 18,210 pounds
  • 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6: Tow up to 22,670 pounds
  • High-Output 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6: Tow up to 37,090 pounds

Your RAM 3500 towing capacity will vary depending on how you configure your vehicle, so you should always reference your owner’s manual for detailed information on your particular model. If you need every pound of towing capacity that you can get, choose a configuration with a high Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) and a relatively low curb weight.

Think you could get by with less power? Compare the RAM 2500 vs. 3500 before you make a final decision. While you’re at it, you may want to check out the RAM 1500 towing capacity, too!

RAM 3500 Payload Capacity & Bed Dimensions

Your RAM 3500 payload capacity will vary depending on how you configure your pickup! Models that have been optimized for hauling can manage up to 4,644 pounds. Heavier builds will tend closer to a limit of 3,745 pounds. Once again, you should reference your owner’s manual for detailed information on your own truck’s maximum capacities.

Need to make a quick, rough calculation? Assuming that you don’t overload one or both of your axles, a truck’s payload limit is generally equal to the difference between its curb weight and its gross vehicle weight rating, or GVWR:

RAM 3500 GVWR & Curb Weight

  • Curb Weight – 6,056 to 7,536 lbs
  • GVWR – 10,700 to 11,400 lbs

If you’re planning to haul lots of cargo, keep in mind that the RAM 3500 can be optioned with either an 8-foot bed or a 6-foot-4-inch bed. The short bed offers 57.5 cubic feet of cargo space, while the long bed offers 74.7 cubic feet of the same.

The RAM 3500 has been built to tow just about anything. Whether you’re hauling your favorite toys down to the water or using your pickup truck for work, your heavy-duty RAM truck has more than enough power to get the job done right. So, what can the 2022 RAM 3500 tow? Any and all of the following:
