Ram trucks recently towed the parade floats at the 89th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. There’s no question as to why Ram trucks, of all trucks, would be entrusted with such an important job. They are some of the strongest and most capable trucks on the market, and Ram Truck brand towing is the best in the business.
Whether you have a parade float to haul or a fishing boat, it helps to know which Ram truck is right for you!
Light Duty or Heavy Duty?
The Ram 1500 is capable of 1,900 pounds max payload so its just right for ATVs, boats and trailers.
If you might need to haul a horse trailer or an RV, the Ram 2500 or Ram 3500 might be better suited for your needs. Ram Heavy Duty tracks offer the best-in-class towing with max payload of 7,390 lbs and 31,210 lbs. max towing.
Other factors to consider are axle ratio. If you are concerned about efficiency, you want a low ratio. A higher ratio will offer better towing power. Cab size will also affect towing power.
This towing guide from Ram Trucks can help you decide. The good news is that whatever your needs, there is always a Ram truck capable of meeting them!
