No matter which RAM 1500 trim level you choose, you’re sure to save on fuel costs thanks to this pickup’s impressive gas mileage. The 1500 enjoys a best-in-class 4×4 driving range of 624 miles, which can strongly lower costs if you’re interested in a full commercial fleet!

What is eTorque?

The new eTorque system is essential to the RAM 1500 fuel economy. RAM models equipped with this system use a 48-volt belt-driven battery-powered motor instead of an alternator. This makes for a hybrid system that results in more torque, more payload, and a higher towing capability, along with a higher EPA-rated fuel economy!

RAM 1500 Efficiency Systems

Here are just a few of the unique features that boost the RAM 1500 fuel economy:

  • Transmission – A TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission will maximize your RAM 1500’s performance and efficiency.
  • Design – The 2021 RAM 1500 models feature an elevated hood and redesigned roof, both of which lower its drag coefficient.
  • Active Air Dam – Standard in the RAM 1500 Rebel and non-air suspension models, this class-exclusive air dam lowers once the truck reaches 30 miles per hour.
