Know Payload and Towing

Many first-time RAM truck owner often don’t consider the payload and towing capabilities  of their RAM truck. They also don’t know that these two things impact each other.

If you’re carrying a heavy payload, you’ll need to lighten your towing weight and vice versa. Taking this into consideration will help you decide what RAM truck will best for you! Each RAM truck features a different payload/towing weight ratio, so check before you purchase!

Consider the Axle Ratio

Finding a RAM truck with the perfect axle ratio is tough, and it’s better to do it before you arrive at the dealership.

Here’s the thing: a higher axle ratio will offer betting towing power and acceleration, while a lower ratio will provide better engine efficiency and quieter vehicle operation. What is more important to you? That’s up for you to decide. Once again, it all depends on your life needs.
