2019 Ram 1500 eTorque

For the majority of this yr, Ram followers have been restricted to a single selection of powertrain in the new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck. The stalwart and sonorous 5.7-liter Hemi V8 was the sole out there choice for ages, with the eTorque-assisted V6 and V8 motors scarce on the floor till just lately.

The feds have finally doffed their cloak from over the eTorque V6 and formally stamped an EPA mileage score on it. Consumers glad with a two-wheel-drive truck powered by six cylinders will discover themselves in control of a pickup rated at 25 mpg.

Briefly, for many who simply need the numbers, take a look at this chart itemizing all six powertrain mixtures: V6, V8, and eTorque V8 in four×2 and four×four configurations.

Not dangerous, given the prodigious thirst foisted upon pickup drivers not so a few years in the past. Nevertheless, consumers ought to be conscious that the EPA charges the 2019 Ram 1500 Basic (y’know, the previous-type truck they’re nonetheless constructing) with a Hemi and four×four at an similar 15 metropolis / 21 freeway / 17 mixed. Hmmm. That is shocking, given the quantity of aero addenda shovelled at the new Ram in an effort to streamline the factor. Each new and previous trucks talked about in these ratings have the wonderful eight-velocity automated.

It might appear, then, that these in search of a little bit of financial savings at the pump however nonetheless needing a V8 would we nicely suggested to splurge on the eTorque Hemi. At an choice value of $1,450, the 2 mpg bump in mixed driving would take seven years to pay for itself, assuming 15,000 miles of annual driving at a mean fuel price of $three/gallon.

Throughout the eTorque launch, the EPA had but to price the V6 and Ram spox predicted a 2 or three mpg bump in fuel effectivity. It seems they have been proper on the cash. With the 2019 eTorque rated at 20 metropolis / 25 freeway / 22 mixed in 2WD guise, it handily beats its non-electrified forebear, which was rated 17/25/20. The previous V6 4WD is rated sixteen/23/19, which means the delicate hybrid system improves fortunes by three mpg on the town, 1 on the freeway, and a couple of in mixed circumstances.

For comparability functions, Ford’s 2.7-liter four×four is rated at 19 metropolis / 24 freeway / 21 mpg mixed, equivalent to Ram’s new V6 eTorque. The Blue Oval’s three.5L EcoBoost is rated at 17 metropolis / 23 freeway / 19 mpg, nigh similar to the V8 eTorque.

As talked about in our First Drive review, there’s nothing stopping FCA from putting in eTorque on something that’s powered by a Pentastar or 5.7L Hemi. These in the know say that plan of action is all however assured. With improved numbers like these, anticipate it to seem on the likes of Chargers and Challengers – amongst others – sooner moderately than later.
