Here in East Hanover, NJ we're near some local lakes like Lake Parsippany, Lake Hopatcong and we're not that far from enjoying all there is to offer on the Hudson River, either. We know there are plenty of boaters out there, and those who have a boat want to know what kind of truck can handle towing it out to the water. Of course, our answer is the Ram 1500.

The Ram 1500 has standard towing of just over 6,200 pounds to 7,730 pounds standard on most vehicles using either the V6 engine or the EcoDiesel option. Additionally, with the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8, you'll find over 12,700 pounds of towing which is best in class for V8 models. That means a high number of different boats can be towed with the Ram 1500 from your generic fishing boat, to a pontoon boat, bay boat, bowriders, sail boats, and more.

Not only that but you can tow and do so with features that help to keep your trailering load balanced so you don't sway, and you have lots of safety such as blind spot monitoring to help you see when turning or changing lanes if there's another vehicle behind you.

Of course, if you're going to the lake without a boat, the Ram 1500 is a standout as well. It has plenty of room in the truck bed to load up with supplies from gear to spread out and enjoy a day by the water, to tailgate equipment and more.

We're here to discuss the Ram 1500 in greater detail with you at Nielsen Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram so contact us today to learn more and get started exploring our collection of quality trucks!
