2022 Ram 1500 Engine Options
The Ram 1500 continues to be a popular vehicle for commuters and truck drivers. It has been in production since 2009, but the 2022 model has brought many new updates. Described by Ram as ‘A bold appearance’ the 1500 has the Class-Exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System, a multifunction tailgate and leather-trimmed interior options.
Loaded with a whole range of safety features such as Electronic Stability Control, Electronic Roll Mitigation, 360 camera, Forward Collision Warning with Active breaking and 98% high-strength steel frame, designed for enhanced stability, durability and rigidity, the Ram 1500 is an all-round powerhouse.
The Ram 1500 is known for its incredible towing capacity of up to 12,750 pounds from its 5.7L V8 engine. And with 5 engine sizes to choose from the Ram1500 has options to make the perfect truck for your needs.
What Engines Are Available on the 2022 Ram 1500?
Starting the engine range off is the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine. Stated by Ram as Best-in-Class, with 480LB-FT of diesel torque and a towing capacity of 12,560 pounds this is a small but mighty engine. The 3.0L engine provides 260BHP and is available as an option for most models of the 2022 Ram 1500.
Next up is the standard engine model you will find in the Ram 1500, the 3.6L Pentastar V6 with eTorque. ETorque uses technology to enable a multitude of functions such as variable valve timing and two-step variable valve life which provides more efficient power delivery. This engine has a 7,730-pound towing capacity, 269LB-FT torque and pushes 305BHP.
We then head into the 5L range with the 5.7l Hemi V8 engine and the 5.7L Hemi V8 with eTorque. The 5.7L standard engine provides 395BHP, a towing capacity of 11,610LB and 410LB-FT of torque. The eTorque version has a mild hybrid technology system that provides great performance with better efficiency and boosts the towing stats to a towing capacity if 12,750LB.
Last, but by no means least, is the supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8 engine. Boasted by Ram as ‘the most powerful factory installed engine in a half-ton truck’ this engine enabled the 1500 to go 0-60MPH in just 4.5 seconds, a seriously impressive feat from a heavy truck. This is due to the supercharger which provides almost instantaneous 650LB-FT of torque and 702BHP. This engine is only available in the TRX model starting at $76,880.
