Ram trucks have been honored with many awards over the years. It has been named Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year eight times. The Ram 1500 is also the first truck to three-peat the award, winning in 2019, 2020, and 2021. Stylistically, the Ram shines and is far more modern both inside and out. Along with numerous clever storage features, the Ram 1500 offers a unique 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen. Additionally, the available air suspension provides a less than truck-like ride. V6 and V8 engines for the Ram can be outfitted with Ram’s eTorque mild-hybrid system that improves acceleration and fuel economy.
The Power of the Ram 1500
The Ram 1500 pickup offers a few engine variants. The 5.7-liter V8 is rated for 395 horsepower and paired with 8-speed automatic transmission. Ram has made this engine available with and without their eTorque mild-hybrid system. The system replaces the alternator with a motor/generator that can store energy and add power for accelerating and passing. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 is the more popular engine on the 1500 models, pimping out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The V6 comes standard with eTorque. If you opt for a 1500 that is 2020 and newer, there is an available 3.0-liter EcoDiesel that pumps out 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque.
