2017 Ram Truck: Performance Towing

May 26th, 2017 by

The all new 2017 Ram truck has the best performance towing capacity in the industry.

Performance towing

Performance.  Efficiency.  Intelligence.  That’s strength evolved.  Nowhere is it more evident than with the legendary towing and hauling capability of the Ram 1500.  Smart engineering such as the available Class-Exclusive Active-Level Four Corner Air Suspension or Ram’s standard Class-Exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission means there isn’t much the Ram 1500 Can’t do.

In conjunction with Ram Truck 1500’s performance towing, it has 3 available engine types.

  • 5.7 Hemi V8 Engine
    • Leads the lineup in hauling capability and strength.
  • 3.0L Ecodiesel V6 Engine
    • One of the most advanced light-duty truck engines ever built.
  • 3.6L Pentastar V6 Engine
    • Power and efficiency comes standard.

Hill Start Assist

Moving forward, a heavy load can make it hard to get moving forward.  Especially when you’re on a hill.  Now, with Ram Truck’s Hill Start Assist, you can detect when your truck is on an incline.  The system maintains brake pressure as you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator, so your truck won’t roll backwards.  In addition to the Hill Start Assist, Ram trucks are equipped with an integrated trailer hitch that seamlessly connects the truck frame to your trailer.  This helps provide a safe and secure connection.  Ram trucks also feature a four- and seven-pin trailer hitch wiring harness and connectors with convenient bumper integration.  Lastly, Trailer Sway Control recognizes a swaying trailer and automatically applies individual wheel brakes and/or reduces engine power to help eliminate trailer sway.

Summer Fun

Camping season is among us and that means Campers, Boats, and ATV’s.  It also means the agriculture community is busy hauling equipment, livestock and feed.  For all of this to happen, one needs a durable and dependable truck to haul these items.  Fortunately, Ram has you covered.  Power you can rely on when you need it most.  Not only durable, but hauling has never been easier with Ram’s Trailer hitch wiring harness and Trailer Sway Control.  That said, time to load up and prep for your next ultimate camping experience.
