What are the engine options?
There are four powerful engines available for the RAM 1500, and we know you’ll be impressed with each one. Starting things off is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes a terrific 30 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The engine comes with an eTorque system that improves the fuel economy and smoothes out the stop-start system. Optional is a 5.7-liter V8 that comes with 395 horses and a wonderful 410 lb-ft of torque. Are you looking for a truck with a diesel engine? The RAM has one in the form of a diesel-powered 3.0-liter V6 capable of producing 260 horsepower and an amazing 480 lb-ft of torque. The highest RAM 1500 trim level, the TRX, has its own unique engine, and it’s a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 capable of producing 702 horsepower. All engines pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive with the option for four-wheel drive.
What are some of the RAM 1500 features?

The base RAM 1500 is the Tradesman, which comes with 18-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, trailer sway damping, and a 5-inch touchscreen with a six-speaker stereo. The Big Horn gives you more tech features such as a choice of either an 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Want the most off-road features?
