When I do tow I do tow a decent distance probably two 300 km round-trip 90% of the time I have axed both the trucks in this comparison and I am now down to a 2017 SLT that has 75,008 km with 392 gears remote start heated seats and steering wheel. No hemi tick but was a work truck so it was somewhat abused and it was from Quebec. Truck two is a 2017 outdoorsman with 321 gears and has 100,000 km was a personal truck and crowned yearly. Third truck is what I’m going to see right now and is a 2016 ram sport with 58,000 km and an unknown gear ratio. All trucks are 4 x 4 and all have an eight speed transmissionEcodiesel w/3.92 gears or find a 1500 hemi with 8 speed and 3.92 gears would be your best all in one option.
People say even the 2500 is much nicer with the 8 speed, but that puts you into an almost new truck as it is a fairly new option.
You don't say if you are towing distances or high speed, so we have to guess lol.
