The Ram 1500 offers three engine options to help you find the truck that offers the towing power and efficiency you're searching for. The 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque delivers an impressive 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. If you're looking for maximum fuel efficiency, this standard engine may be the right option for you with an EPA-estimated 20 city/25 highway MPG.

If you'd rather upgrade your power, an available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine provides 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Combine this engine with available eTorque Hybrid Technology for the ultimate towing power and performance. eTorque Hybrid Technology replaces the traditional alternator with a 48-volt battery-powered generator to help improve performance, efficiency, payload and towing capabilities, and drivability.


When equipped with the available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque Hybrid Technology, you can expect a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds. From larger camping trailers to recreational boats, there's very little the Ram 1500 cannot tow, so it comes standard with Trailer Sway Control. This technology senses when your trailer is beginning to sway and automatically applies the brakes and/or reduces engine power to help you stay in control when navigating tight turns.

In addition to a superior towing capacity, the Ram 1500 boasts a maximum payload capacity of 2,300 pounds so you can load up your bed and head out to your worksite. When you're carrying a heavy load of work tools, available Active-Level™ 4-Corner Air Suspension will help maintain a balanced and level ride to keep your pickup secure.


A maximum cargo bed volume of 61.5 cubic feet combined with a superior payload capacity allows bulkier, heavier items to make the journey with you. To help you load these items, the Ram 1500 features different tailgate options. When your hands are full, an available power-release tailgate allows you to open the tailgate with the press of a button on your key fob.

For the ultimate convenience, an available multifunction tailgate features 60/40 split-away doors that make it more streamlined to step inside the bed. This split also allows for forklift loading to quickly load up your truck bed with palettes and other bulkier items.


When you're traversing roads with a 25-foot camping trailer, an available Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection will help keep you safe. It scans the blind zones behind your vehicle to let you know when it's safe to change lanes. This system automatically senses and takes into account the length of your trailer. No matter what you're towing, change lanes with greater confidence thanks to this technology.

A standard ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera displays live feed of the rear of your vehicle when you're in reverse to help you back out of spots without a problem. This camera also helps you to line up your trailer and hitch so you can hit the road faster.
