Performance Highlights

5.7L HEMI V8 Engine

This engine is one of three available engines, producing 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque for maximum towing and acceleration.

TorqueFlite Transmission

Standard on every mode, this 8-speed automatic transmission uses a Thermal Management System for efficiency while letting you accelerate quickly in low gears.

Towing Aids

You can haul that extra-heavy load with ease thanks to an integrated trailer hitch and trailer sway control, making adjustments to help you stay in control.

Active-Level Four Corner Air Suspension

Available and adaptable, this system has five ride heights to choose from while managing levels automatically for optimum fuel efficiency and clearance.

Tough and Helpful Performance

The new RAM 1500 comes standard with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with variable valve timing, giving you 305 hp and 269-hp, but staying efficient with 25 mpg/highway and 17 mpg/city.

In addition to the aforementioned HEMI V8 engine, you can also opt for the 3.0L EcoDisesel V6 engine with best-in-class fuel efficiency coming in at 29 mpg/highway and 21 mpg/city. This 3.0L engine is capable of 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.

If you’ve got bigger cargo to tow, the HEMI V8 is the leading choice, allowing you to bring up to 10,640 lbs., and you can add the Trailer Tow Mirror and Brake Control Group for added assistance.
