All-New Ram 1500 Revealed! Redesigned and Hybridized

The new Ram 1500 is Dodge’s addition to the high end, heavy duty truck market. Like its predecessors, it is designed to work and comes standard with a V6 or an upgraded V8 Hemi engine. They also contain a proprietary eTorque system which can increase the torque to 90 fps in the V6 and 130 in the V8 model.

Key Takeaways:

  • As in the outgoing model, the 2019 Ram 1500 is powered by a 305-hp 3.6-liter V-6 (called Pentastar) or a 395-hp 5.7-liter V-8 (Hemi).
  • Along with stop/start capability that should provide smoother and quicker starts than traditional systems, eTorque can provide a brief torque boost of 90 lb-ft to V-6 Rams and 130 lb-ft to V-8 models
  • In addition to the powertrain changes, the Ram 1500 also benefits from a number of aerodynamic additions aimed at improving fuel economy
