Five Powerful Engine Options
eTorque Launch System
Enjoy maximum towing and payload capabilities with the available eTorque system for both the 3.6L Pentastar™ V6 and 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine on the 2023 Ram 1500. Increasing each powertrain’s torque by 90 lb-ft and 135 lb-ft respectively, the 48-volt mild hybrid system enhances the pickup truck’s low-speed acceleration capabilities, especially when under heavy load conditions.
Advanced Fuel-Saving Technologies
Tow up to 12,750lbs (5,783kgs) with confidence and ease, thanks to the 2023 Ram 1500’s tried and true 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine. If you’re willing to slightly sacrifice towing capabilities for more efficiency, look no further than the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 with its 12,560lbs (5,696kgs) of maximum towing capabilities. Regardless of which powertrain you opt for, enjoy standard fuel-saving technologies including the Ram 1500’s active air dam, Active Air® Grille Shutters, a low-drag hood and increased weight reduction compared to the previous generation.
