RAM 1500
Engine Specs

To provide you with a commanding presence wherever you roam, the Ram 1500 is armed with a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque, generating 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. 

If you're looking for an efficiency or power upgrade, this truck comes with two other powertrain options:

  • 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine (with and without eTorque): 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque

Whether you opt for the fuel-efficient diesel motor or stick with the baseline one, each engine offers its own unique set of benefits and towing capabilities.


Ram 1500
Towing Capacity

With several engine options to choose from, you'll be treated to a range of towing capacities. If you want to haul a water ski boat or lightweight camper, the baseline motor is up for the job with a maximum towing capacity of 7,730 pounds.

However, if you're looking for maximum pulling power to tow your large camping trailer or recreational boat, upgrade to one of the available engines.

When properly equipped, the diesel engine can take on tows up to 12,560 pounds. The V8 powertrain generates enough muscle to tow a maximum of 11,610 pounds. When combined with available eTorque, this engine becomes even more commanding and is able to haul up to 12,750 pounds.

Furthermore, to make hitching up your 2-horse trailer even easier, an air suspension system is available. It comes with auto-load leveling to help you secure your trailer and hit the road quicker.

Ram 1500 Cargo Capacity

In addition to being able to haul heavy machinery around your worksite, your next vehicle needs to be able to handle all your cargo needs.

Thanks to an available multifunction tailgate, the Ram 1500 puts all your gear within closer reach. This feature can open down like a traditional tailgate or swing open 88 degrees to make loading and unloading simpler-even when your trailer is attached.

To make room for all your tools, a RamBox® Cargo Management System is also available. It's placed on the exterior of your cargo bed, so cargo width won't be compromised. It also features a drainable box with a charger to help you stay connected wherever you roam.

Ram 1500 Technology

Whether you're jetting around from worksite to worksite or heading to the mountains for a thrilling weekend getaway, the Ram 1500 will keep you entertained with an available Uconnect® 12.0 with Navigation infotainment system.

Split-screen capability on this feature allows you to select your desired listening experience and view navigation instructions simultaneously. This ensures that you don't miss out on any important information while navigating the ever-changing road ahead.

Whatever you decide to listen to through the smartphone integration on this display, it'll sound clear and refined with the available Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System. This technology provides you with 900 watts of crystal-clear sound through 19 speakers strategically placed around the cabin of your Ram 1500.

Ram 1500 Interior

Even when you're tearing up mud around your worksite, you'll stay clean and comfortable inside the cabin of the Ram 1500.

Available leather-appointed seating delights the eye while also feeling comfortable and refined. A dual-pane panoramic sunroof is also available to bathe your cabin in natural light. This 10-square-foot fixture brings the beauty of nature right inside your truck.

Your backseat passengers will be just as cozy in the rear with 45.1 inches of legroom and an available reclining rear seat. Your friends can kick back and relax during lengthy road trips or when traveling to your next worksite.
