Ram 1500 Payload and Cargo Management

The 2019 Ram 1500 comes with a smart design that helps you maximize your cargo area.

You’ll have the choice between two different boxes: The 5-foot, 7-inch box offers 53.9 cubic feet of cargo space and the 6-foot, 4-inch box gives you 61.5 cubic feet of cargo space, which is enough for a 4×8 sheet of plywood. With a payload of 2,300 pounds, you can feel free to pack heavy.

An Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension System with automatic load leveling is also available on all trims. This system kicks in and levels out the suspension when weight is added to the truck bed.

If you need a bit more space, the available innovative RamBox® Cargo Management System has you covered, literally. This weatherproof box is built into the side rails of the bed to keep space inside the bed free for larger cargo. It’s a great place to store small items, like tools, and is lockable, so you can keep valuables safe.

It even includes a 115-volt power outlet, so you can operate electric tools right from the bed of your truck.

2019 Ram 1500 Towing Capacity

The Ram 1500 has a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds when properly equipped, which is more than two times the weight of the average RV. It includes several driver-assistive features, as well, to help you have a successful towing experience.

These area features like available Blind Spot Monitoring with Trailer Detection, which helps you safely change lanes by alerting you to cars in your side blind spot. With Trailer Detection, this also extends to include the blind spots of the trailer.

Mechanical Specs

Behind every capable truck is a powerful engine, and you’ll get three to choose from with the Dodge Ram 1500. The base trim comes standard with a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine that generates 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. It also includes eTorque, a mild hybrid system that replaces the traditional alternator to improve performance, efficiency, and drivability.

For more power, you can opt for the available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine, with an output of 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. To reach the maximum towing capacity, however, be sure to choose the version of this engine that comes with eTorque.

All engines are also paired with a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission that keeps you automatically operating in the optimal gear for maximum efficiency and performance, making it an ideal complement to the eTorque engines.
