2013 ram 1500 crew cab sxt v6 towing boat

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.  This 3.6 liter V6 equipped Ram 4×4 is rated at a maximum 6,300 lbs of towing capacity.

But what does that mean in the real world where the tires hit the road.  This is why we hitched up 5,740 lbs worth of Tige ski boat and trailer and took it for a 0-60 MPH run.  Of course, we are doing this test at a mile above sea level.

How did the big 2013 Ram 1500 do? Check out the following video to find out.
