Pickup trucks, more often than not, will be used at some point to get work done, so it's beneficial to have a performance-driven, efficient engine powering the vehicle. There are four engine options available with the Ram 1500. Each is paired with the standard TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission for the best performance.

The first is a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with an eTorque Mild Hybrid system. This engine combines performance and gas efficiency that results in 395 horsepower. Next up is the standard 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that also produces 395 horsepower.

The third option is a V6 3.6-liter Pentastar engine with eTorque that delivers 305 horsepower. Last, but not least is the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine that cranks out 260 horsepower. No matter what your needs, there's an engine option for the new Ram 1500 that's right for you.


The capability of the new Ram 1500 is directly tied into the performance, so you can tailor your capability requirements to the engine that best suits your needs.

The V6 Pentastar engine with eTorque will give drivers 7,730 pounds of towing power while the 260 horsepower EcoDiesel will put an impressive 12,560 pounds of towing capability into their hands.


Equal in importance to capability and performance is the interior space of the pickup. Each model of the Ram 1500 comes with a set of colors, details, and premium materials that are specific to that model. Depending on the model chosen, seating is covered in leather, vinyl, cloth, or premium cloth.

The backseat area provides excellent legroom, up to 45.1 inches to be exact, and there is also the available option of reclining rear seats to increase comfort. The new Ram 1500 seats five comfortably while providing 151.1 cubic feet of storage space when the configurable center console and in-floor storage areas are factored in.
