Available towing equipment and features
In order to take advantage of the Ram 3500’s full towing capabilities, you’ll need to make sure your truck has all the right equipment. Plus, Ram has been working tirelessly to make towing as easy as possible for their customers. New for 2022 is an LED trailer hitch light that illuminates the hitch, making it easy to hook up a trailer even at night time. An available feature is the auto-leveling rear air suspension. This allows for easier trailer hookups by lowering the rear suspension to the lowest setting. Also available is a digital rearview mirror with tow mode. This feature uses an exterior camera feeding video onto a screen that doubles as a traditional mirror. This gives you an unobstructed view of the road behind the truck and the trailer to make sure the cars around you and your cargo remain safe. Lastly, Ram offers factory-installed integrated towing hardware mounted into the truck bed, accommodating gooseneck and fifth-wheel trailers.
