What is the towing capacity of a 2003 Dodge Ram?

Trailer towing capacities range from just 3050 pounds for a 3.7-liter V6 Quad Cab with 2WD and manual transmission, to 8450 for a 5.9-liter V8 Regular Cab with 2WD. A 4WD Ram with the 4.7-liter and automatic transmission is rated to pull a 7450-pound trailer with the 3.92 rear axle ratio. So those who need to pull trailers up to 8500 pounds will want to opt for the 5.9-liter engine. It delivers 245 horsepower and 335 pounds-feet of torque. The available 20-inch wheels reduce towing capacity by 1000 pounds. Payloads range from a mere 1300 pounds for a 4WD Quad Cab with the 5.9-liter V8 to 1850 pounds for a 2WD regular cab with the 3.7-liter V6.
