If you're looking for a vehicle with the best towing capabilities out there, we may have found something for you. For the fifth year in a room, RAM's 1500 series is on the marking and expected to put competitors, like the Ford F-150 back in their place. The 2014 RAM 1500 is rumored to achieve new best-in-class town ratings for V-6 gasoline pickup trucks.

Starting off the trim is the standard-cab, rear-drive, half-ton truck with a Pentastar 3.6-liter engine. Reaching 305 horsepower, the truck can pull a whopping 7,450-pound trailer. This is an exceptional improvement from the 2013 model that maxed out its towing capabilities at 6,500 lbs. It's also a vast improvement from its greatest competitor, the 3.7-liter V-6 in Ford's F-150, which only pulls a measly 6,100 pounds. It also puts this vehicle on par with the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, which have a tow rating of 7200 pounds. The increase the RAM's towing capabilities resulted in several internal upgrades. Dodge added a more robust parking gear to the exclusive eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. This ensures the truck and trailer both remain stationary when parked on a steep grade.

For those looking for increase towing capability and improved fuel economy should look into the 2014 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel, which tows a monstrous 9200 pounds. Rear wheel drive is standard in the 2014 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel drive though it does come with the options of being a regular cab or long bed truck. A 3.0-liter V6 turbo engine is the power behind the Eco Diesel's towing capacity. The Eco Diesel boasts 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. The truck also has an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission to ensure parking is not a problem. The 2013 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel gets an outstanding 25 mpg. This makes the truck as strong at the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 truck, towing wise, but also fuel efficient in the process. The base trim 2014 RAM 1500 with the Pentastar V-6 engine will start at $25,295 and is expected to be on sale by September 2013.
