The Best Trucks for Horse Trailers

Bringing horses along with you for the trip requires a vehicle with enough muscle to transport a trailer with no trouble. That's where Ram's lineup of trucks comes in. With their large engines and stable builds, they can tow just about anything.

At Goss Dodge Chrysler Ram Jeep (DCRJ), we know that drivers in the Chittenden County, South Burlington, and St. Albans areas need a truck with plenty of utility. To help you in your research, we've compiled this guide on the best trucks for towing horse trailers!

Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 is a truck that boasts flexible utility along with a sizable engine and an impressive towing capacity. Standard under the hood of this vehicle is a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque. This powertrain generates some impressive force with 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, and when properly equipped, it allows you to tow up to 7,730 pounds of cargo.

For towing horse trailers, though, we recommend you upgrade to the available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque. This engine generates 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque while boasting 12,750 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped. Overall, when you need a truck that's suited for work and daily driving, this vehicle can provide exactly what you need.

Ram 2500

For a bit more strength, the Ram 2500 offers a nice upgrade in towing potential for drivers who need to haul every day. This vehicle comes standard with a 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine that's able to generate up to 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. When this heavy-duty truck is fully equipped, you can tow as much as 17,580 pounds with this engine.

When you need to pull a couple more tons of cargo, you'll want to upgrade to the available 6.7L Turbo-Diesel I-6 engine. Drivers using this powertrain will enjoy as much as 370 horsepower and 850 lb-ft of torque, as well as an increased towing capacity of 19,780 pounds. Set this truck up right using this engine, and you'll be well prepared to pull a horse trailer!

Ram 3500

When you really need to be fully equipped to tow a large horse trailer, you'll want to upgrade to the available Ram 3500. This large vehicle provides drivers with the same 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine as we see in the Ram 2500, but the 6.7L Cummins I-6 engine is upgraded in this model.

In the Ram 3500, the 6.7L Cummins I-6 engine is upgraded to provide high-output performance, allowing for as much as 400 horsepower and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. This vehicle is engineered to pull just about anything you throw at it with a towing capacity of up to 35,100 pounds.
