For nearly 40 years, Ram has been helping drivers throughout Newell, Weirton, and East Liverpool travel greater distances thanks to its efficient engineering and determined attitude. Thanks in part to its special Pentastar® V6 engine, the Ram 1500 earns an EPA-estimated 20/25 city/highway MPG when properly configured.*

At Hancock County Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we're committed to pairing you with a truck that best fulfills your lifestyle and needs. Therefore, we created this special guide detailing how this capable midsize helps you track more miles while making fewer stops at the pump. Schedule a test drive today!

Performance Specs & Efficiency

The Ram 1500's strength isn't derived from its pretty paint job. It starts deep under the hood and emanates into every square inch of its high-strength steel frame. This thunderous power isn't generated by just any engine-it's delivered from three distinct engine options:




EPA-estimated MPG city/highway*

3.6L Pentastar® V6


269 lb-ft


5.7L HEMI® V8


410 lb-ft


3.0L EcoDiesel V6


420 lb-ft


Smart Efficiency Features

Each engine is mated to a TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission with a built-in mild hybrid system for seamless shifting while traveling on and off road. Each engine also uses special Variable Valve Timing technology and cylinder deactivation to help conserve fuel while idling or traveling at low RPMs.

Every Ram 1500 trim also comes standard with a 26-gallon fuel tank with the option to upgrade to a massive 33-gallon tank. So, whether you're cruising around the neighborhood or hitting the long open highway for a weekend adventure, you'll be able to keep your eyes focused longer on the road and less on your fuel gauge.

3 Ways to Maximize MPG

While the Ram 1500's legendary engineering provides serious efficiency, there's also a few habits you can do as a driver to minimize fuel consumption, which includes:

  • Regular Maintenance Checks. One of the easiest ways to maximize fuel economy is to change your pickup's oil every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. A routine oil change as well as regular tire rotations help the Ram 1500 retain its high performance and safety standards.
  • Limit Excess Weight. Despite its 12,750-pound maximum towing capacity with the V8 engine, it's wise to limit the amount of weight you're carrying when it isn't necessary.
  • Check Your Tire Pressure. One of the easiest ways to ensure you achieve the highest MPG rating is by checking your PSI levels at least once per month. You should also make it a point to inspect each tire for any signs of wear or damage.
