2013 Ram 1500 V6 Pentastar 0-60 MPH Towing Test

  • by

( ) The new 2013 Ram 1500 ST Crew Cab is a big, and beefy pickup built to haul a bed full of stuff and up to six people, while towing over 6000 pounds. In fact this pickup with the smaller 3.6L Pentastar has a towing capacity of 6400 pounds. But what does that mean in the real world where the tires hit the road. We decided to find out by putting the Infiniti QX56 to the TFLcar towing test. We hooked up a 6000 pound boat to the back of the 2013 Ram 1500 pickup to see how fast it would accelerate from 0-60 MPH @ 1 mile above sea level towing a ski boat. How did the big Infiniti QX56 fare? Check out this video to find out.

Welcome to another episode of the fastlane car and today we have this mighty tall pickup the brand new ram 1500 quad cab and if you can tell it’s towing a boat and that’s because we’re gonna do another tfl car towing test and today we’re going to see if this can beat our reigning champion the q x infinity 56 coming up next on the fast lane car andre what do we

Have under the hood there’s three shades litora she’s didn’t draw it written he says it’s a 3.6 liter pentastar with six cylinders how many horse parties to put out three-step at 305 and how much torque this test should just add damn it 269 pound-feet of torque will you go hook it up so that we can do this towing test i got shot a month thank you and say i did

Not know that russians were big into wakeboarding and all the other stuff that you do here in colorado you never thought ducks look no idea hey nice yeah summer not mine i die yeah um sure – oh jesse epidamnus that with my man alright bring it up i’ll help you i’ll let you know when you get in close deserve a backup camera and you haven’t got this yeah the net

The helpful to have it back across tigers iv summer christ art you can do it yourself huh alright come on back it up back it up back it up alright keep coming straight back straight back you’re looking good you’re looking good nice and slow you got about a meter a half a meter i’m doing it in european about five inches i’m going to confuse him keep going stop

Right there nice job now last time we told this very same boat we had the infiniti qx56 and if i recall correctly it went from 0 to 60 towing the boat in just under 17 seconds about 16 and a half now the reason we do this towing test is the give you an idea of what it’s like to pull onto a highway when you have to do it quickly so let’s find out how fast the ram

1500 will tow well about 6,000 pounds under a very impressive look at that i sleep especially yeah you’re good at this malaga us at the gel is a booster method now andre keep our curious about you you’re from moscow right yeah it’s my squid ah yeah yeah yeah so people go boating in moscow non-id yeah i must fight again aniston is it on the moscow river is elvis

On that it can’t yeah i would think they’d be more likely go snowmobiling if there are such things yet i mean anthem you guys yeah in the summer oh there you go good work dude sohcahtoa okay so you come down let’s see how much weight this thing does there we go that shows this now the city beside lena yeah but which it’s happy yeah no safety chains now we’re going

To be maxing this truck out you know that we’re at this trucks towing capacity is what chased each turista for six thousand four hundred pounds back helos not found and we’ve got about about four thousand pounds worth of ski boat and about what two thousand pounds with the trailer give or take is that right that’s depriving the garden stuff yeah so we are right

At this trucks towing capacity so this will be an interesting touch to say the least all right here we go towing tests i have it in tow haul i’ve got 305 horsepower but only 269 pound-feet of torque and that is not a lot given the size of this all right here we go let’s see how fast this does i see victim break 16.5 it’s floored oh my there’s 20 this is going to

Be a rather gingerly here comes 40 and come on 50 here comes 55 and here comes 60 what do you think guys did it break the infinity’s record well got some bad news not even close twenty-one point five six twenty one point five six so really well it feels ok towing it needs more torque if you’re going to tow something that’s right at its limit which is six thousand

Well almost six thousand five hundred pounds and i think if you’re gonna be telling boats of this size i go for the hemi as always this is rhomin reporting for the fast lane car thanks for watching remember subscribe for a new video every day see you next time
