RAM Truck Towing Basics

 

We at Clovis Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM know towing needs vary from light loads to heavy-duty equipment to camping trailers. With each truck buyer’s unique requirements in mind, the friendly sales team at our RAM dealership in Clovis, CA put together a list of towing tips to ensure a safe experience every time you hitch up. 

If you're in the market for a truck for towing purposes, determine what your needs are and your ideal towing capacity. Our RAM trucks feature different capacities based on engine and drivetrain configuration. The 2019 RAM 1500, for example, boasts a max 12,750-lb towing capacity, while the RAM 2500 features a max 16,320-lb towing threshold.

RAM designs cutting-edge vehicles with the latest innovations. New for the model year is blind spot detection with trailer coverage. In addition to the system monitoring your vehicle's blind spots, it takes into account the length of your tow as well. Electronic stability control, trailer sway control, and a trailer brake controller are just a few features that are also offered in our RAM trucks for sale.

When it comes to the actual act of towing, consult our new and used car dealers for information on the right equipment. There are five main components needed for a successful haul: trailer hitch receiver, ball mount, pin and clip, trailer hitch ball, and wiring harness. There are different sizes to these pieces, which is why it's important to know exactly what you need.

With plenty of hauling options for your RAM truck, our sales team and trained service technicians are more than happy to help and address any questions. Stop by our Chrysler dealership serving Selma, CA located at 395 W Herndon Ave.
