eTorque: The Key to RAM 1500 Efficiency

One RAM 1500 component that plays a significant role in its efficient mileage rating is the eTorque system. Rather than an alternator, 1500 models with eTorque use a 48-volt belt-driven motor that’s powered by a battery. Even though a mild hybrid system is typically associated with hybrid or electric cars, you may be surprised to know that this system produces more torque, as well as higher payload and towing capacities.

Additional RAM 1500 MPG Efficiency Systems

Additional systems that contribute to the RAM 1500 efficient fuel economy include:

  • Standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission thatadjusts shift points to maximize efficiency and performance.
  • All-new 2021 RAM 1500 design features an elevated hood and redesigned roof to lower its drag coefficient.
  • Active Air Dam is standard in the RAM 1500 Rebel and non-air suspension models. This air dam lowers once the truck reaches 30 miles per hour.
