Every Edgewood, Bel Air, and Aberdeen, MD, driver is different and performs something different when it comes to performance and capability. Luckily, the Ram 1500 offers three engine options, so you can find the one that works best for you.

Which of these three offers the capability you desire? Our team at Thompson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (CJDR) of Harford County is here to provide you with the answers.

We'll provide you with an in-depth look at what makes each of these powertrains unique, so you can find the right one for you.

Baseline Power and Performance

Kicking off the powertrain lineup is a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque. This motor is the best of both worlds, delivering 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque while also achieving an EPA-estimated 20 MPG city and 25 MPG highway.

How Much Can It Tow?

With this baseline power, the standard motor in the Ram 1500 can handle tows up to 7,730 pounds, which means it can easily haul the following:

  • A water ski boat for family fun on the way
  • A lightweight towable camper for a weekend camping escape
  • A lightly loaded utility trailer with all your worksite essentials

Impressive Fuel Efficiency and Muscle

If instead you're looking for a fuel economy boost, opt for the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine.

Diesel fuel is more dense than regular fuel, causing it to burn slower and last longer. The result for this motor is an EPA-estimated 22 MPG city and 32 MPG highway, helping you cruise from worksite to worksite with minimal interruptions.

How Much Can It Tow?

In addition to impressive fuel economy, this engine delivers 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque to help you haul a maximum of 12,560 pounds. This type of power can easily take on the following:

  • A large camping trailer for a cross-country venture with your friends
  • A large recreational boat for relaxing afternoons by the bay
  • A 2-horse trailer for an out-of-town show

Maximum Pulling Power

If you're looking for the most power output, choose the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine delivering 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.

This motor also earns an EPA-estimated 15 MPG city and 22 MPG highway, so there's no need to sacrifice efficiency for performance.

What Can It Tow?

This motor can easily handle up to 11,610 pounds. However, if you opt for the eTorque Mild Hybrid System, you'll gain a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds.

You'll also get a fuel efficiency boost to achieve an EPA-estimated 17 MPG city and 23 MPG highway.
