When looking for your next truck, you're probably considering a range of capability factors like towing capacity and payload. But are you considering fuel efficiency? The 2021 Ram 1500 is smashing truck stereotypes with an EPA-estimated 22 MPG city and 32 MPG highway.

How does such a commanding vehicle earn such superb fuel economy? The team at Thompson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Harford County is here to share how drivers from the Edgewood, Bel Air, and Aberdeen, MD, areas, can find both power and performance in the Ram 1500.

Choose the Blend of Power and Efficiency You Crave

Every driver craves something different when they step into the driver's seat, so the 2021 Ram 1500 offers three engine options to help you find the performance blend you're looking for:


Engine Option



Torque (lb-ft)


EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy


3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 with eTorque





4x2: 20 city/25 highway MPG

4x4: 19 city/24 highway MPG


5.7-liter HEMI® V8





4x2: 15 city/22 highway MPG

4x4: 15 city/21 highway MPG


5.7-liter HEMI® V8 with eTorque





4x2: 17 city/23 highway MPG

4x4: 17 city/22 highway MPG


3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6





4x2: 22 city/32 highway MPG

4x4: 21 city/29 highway MPG

As you can see, this truck takes efficiency seriously. For even greater MPG, you can even add the Class-Exclusive eTorque Mild Hybrid System to the commanding available 5.7-liter engine. This system automatically optimizes shift changes to improve efficiency and performance-which shows when it comes to fuel economy.

If you're looking for the best efficiency, though, you'll want to opt for the diesel powertrain. Diesel fuel is denser than traditional, causing it to burn slower and last longer, leading to a great MPG for you to enjoy.

Fuel Saving Design

Engine performance isn't the only way the 2021 Ram 1500 achieves its MPG. The construction of this truck is just as important to help achieve a .357 drag coefficient, improved aerodynamics, and increased fuel economy.

The elevated hood optimizes area deflection, while a sculpted roof directs air to the rear spoiler, all to create fuel-saving construction. Add on the active air dam, and your truck will automatically extend downwards as you reach 30 MPH to help reduce drag.

How Far Can the Ram 1500 Take You?

Thanks to a 26-gallon fuel tank when the diesel motor is equipped, you can travel over 830 highway miles in your 2021 Ram 1500 before needing to stop to refuel. This can lead to some lengthy exploration-here's just some of the trips you might enjoy with this much MPG behind you:

  • Cruise to Baltimore to dine along the inner harbor on a Saturday night
  • Head to Washington D.C. to explore one of the free Smithsonian museums
  • Spend a sunny day in Annapolis taking a sailing lesson
  • Jet up the coast to Philadelphia to explore the history of our nation
  • Camp at Blue Ridge State Forest with your family's camper
