Diverse Selection of Ram 1500 Engines

There are three unique engine options when outfitting your Ram 1500, and this variety, as well as the competence of each motor, played a major part in this model's success with the judges.

  • To begin, there's a 5.7L HEMI® V8 that boasts impressive specifications, such as 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.
  • The next option is this same engine accompanied by eTorque, which ultimately increases power and efficiency. 
  • Finally, there's the 3.6L Pentastar® V6, which delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque.

All three motors deliver dazzling strength and exceptionally smooth drives, whether you're driving on the highway or through uneven terrain. This fluidity is due in large part to the 8-speed automatic transmission, which shifts between gears seamlessly.

Maximum Towing Capacity & Payload

When considering models for the Truck of the Year, Motor Trend takes maximum towing capacity and payload into heavy consideration. Thankfully, the Ram 1500 thrives in both regards.

  • If you decide to go with the 3.6L motor, you'll have 7,730 pounds of maximum towing to utilize. 
  • Bump up to the 5.7L HEMI® and the maximum towing increases to 11,610 pounds. 
  • Finally, if you equip this engine with eTorque technology, your Ram 1500 will be able to tow upwards of 12,750 pounds.

In addition to this herculean towing, the Ram 1500 can also support up to 2,300 pounds of payload, making it powerful enough to handle the most demanding jobs.

Convenient & Cutting-Edge Bed Features

One of the clinchers for the Truck of the Year voting was the Ram 1500's unique and practical bed which is loaded with modern amenities.

For example, the enhanced RamBox® Cargo Management System sports two lockable, drainable storage bins complete with LED lighting, remote access via a key fob, and a 115-volt power outlet. The sheer size of the bed is also encouraging, as the bed volume measures 61.5 cubic feet.

Accessing your bed is easy, too, due to several additions, including the available power side running boards and the dampened tailgate.
