Serious Performance

While the Ram 1500 is indeed a beautiful truck, you’re also given a fuel-efficient and functional one that issues serious performance. It could be due to the diversity of engines you can choose from.

The standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque generates 305 horsepower paired with 269 lb-ft of torque. This, and the other available engines, include the TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission.

To get powerful torque for high performance, select the available 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel engine. It generates 260 horsepower paired with 480 lb-ft of torque for getting the toughest jobs accomplished.

Two different versions of an optional 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine can be chosen too. One features an eTorque Mild Hybrid Technology System, so you can get more efficient gas mileage and performance. Either version generates 395 horsepower paired up with 410 lb-ft of torque.

As for gas efficiency, with a 4×2 trim, the 1500 achieves an EPA-estimated 20 city/25 highway MPG. If you opt for the 4×4, it achieves an EPA-estimated 19 city/24 highway MPG. Even with a heavy load hooked up to your trailer, you’ll appreciate the nonstop performance.

Secrets to Towing Technology
