Max towing capacity of 2019 RAM Heavy Duty trucks
The new Ram 2500 and RAM 3500 are both powerful monsters when it comes to towing. Both get to enjoy the tremendous 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine that delivers 1,000 pound-feet of torque. There’s also a powerful 6.4-liter HEMI V8 option that comes standard.

With these options in mind, the big difference between the 2500 and the 3500 comes down to construction. The 3500 gets to enjoy a beefier frame as well as dually options for better overall towing numbers. Both are impressive, but the 3500 is a little more impressive. See the max towing figures for properly-equipped RAM Heavy Duty trucks below.
Max 2019 RAM 2500 Towing
Fifth-Wheel Towing: 17,390 Pounds (7,888 kg)
Gooseneck Towing: 19,780 Pounds (8,972 kg)
Max 2019 RAM 3500 Towing
Fifth-Wheel Towing: 30,000 Pounds (13,608 kg)
Gooseneck Towing: 35,100 Pounds (15,921 kg)
Max payload capacity of 2019 RAM Heavy Duty trucks
The payload numbers for both the 2500 and the 3500 are just as impressive as the towing figures that we went over above. What may surprise you is that the RAM 3500 has different payload numbers depending on the engine, and the gas engine can actually haul more even though it is less powerful.
This isn’t an inaccuracy. When it comes to payload, vehicle weight is an important concern. The diesel engine and all the things that come along with it adds a lot to the overall mass of the truck. This combined with other factors can actually lower the payload capacity a little bit.
Max 2019 RAM 2500 Towing
Gas Payload: 4,050 Pounds (1,837 kg)
Diesel Payload: 4,050 Pounds (1,837 kg)
Max 2019 RAM 3500 Payload
Gas Payload: 7,680 Pounds (3,484 kg)
Diesel Payload: 6,910 Pounds (3,134 kg)
