If you are thinking about purchasing a pickup, then you may want to look into the available towing packages on the most popular models. The 2022 Ram 1500 DT is eligible for the Trailer Tow Group, which is a suite that other vehicles in this class - such as the 2022 Ford F-150 - can’t compete with.
First, the Ford F-150 does come with pre-wired connections and a standard trailer sway control to make driving with an attachment more stable. However, there are no optional packages that provide lower trim levels with extra hauling features. If you want the Class IV receiver hitch, you have to get the mid-range Lariat.
However, the Ram 1500 DT is offered with the Trailer Tow Group. It brings the Class IV receiver hitch into play on any trim including the base - which ramps up the truck’s capabilities. When equipped with the 5.7-litre HEMI V8, it can pull up to 5,783 kg (12,750 lbs). That is a class-leading number. Plus, the suite also includes a trailer brake controller for more stopping power, extended side mirrors for enhanced visibility, and the 7-pin wiring harness.
