The 5.7 HEMI Ram 1500
Ram offers two variants of the 5.7L Hemi V8 engine; one with the eTorque system and another with no eTorque. The eTorque system incorporates different technologies from the other engine options. These technologies include the start and stop capabilities, a 48-volt li-ion battery pack, a 12kW motor generator, and others. These hybrid features enhance the performance, efficiency, power, and drivability of the truck.
The Ram 1500 HEMI in Wainwright and surrounding areas comes with 395 horsepower with 410-pound feet of torque to offer more towing power. This is a little less powerful than the Ecodiesel option. Without the eTorque technology, the truck can tow 11,610 pounds. The eTorque enhances the performance so the truck tows 12,750 pounds. You can update your engine to have the eTorque system for better performance.The engine has a fuel economy of 15.68 L/100kms in the city and 11.2 L/100kms on the highway.
The 3.0 Ecodiesel V6
The 3.0 Ecodiesel V6 is more fuel-efficient than the 5.7 Hemi 1500. It has a fuel economy of the 12.38 L/100kms in the city and 9.05 L/100kms on the highway. Given that it can tow more even without the eTorque system, the Ecodiesel option is preferred by those who need the truck to tow and haul.
