What is the towing capacity on the 2019 Ram 3500?

I’m about to trade in my old Highlander and I’m looking to upgrade to a pickup truck for its hauling capabilities. My friend swears by the Ram 3500, but I’m not sure it’s powerful enough. How much weight can a 2019 Ram 3500 tow?

is pretty well-known for its towing power. The 2019 Ram 3500 is no exception with a towing capacity between 13,700 and 14,990 pounds.

Trailers full of gravel or material Trailers holding livestock Large campers Large boats
If you want some mega-towing power, you can even upgrade the engine to increase your towing capacity to mind-blowing numbers. Here’s a look at the options:
