2017 Ram 1500 engine options
There isn’t a pickup driver in the world who doesn’t want their vehicle to come equipped with a strong, capable powertrain. Pickup trucks were designed to tackle everything from construction projects to family camping trips. Thanks to the 2017 Ram 1500’s three engine options, drivers can customize the truck’s power to match their daily commutes and lifestyles. There isn’t a shortage of power under this pickup’s hood.
3.6L Pentastar VVT V-6
When paired with Canada’s Best-Selling Engine, the 2017 Ram 1500 brings a blend of power and efficiency to the road. The iconic 3.6L Pentastar VVT V-6 engine is capable of generating 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Implementing Variable Valve Timing (VVT) and the TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission, the 1500 is able to earn an estimated 9.6 L/100 km (29 mpg) highway fuel economy.
5.7L HEMI VVT V-8
Continuing with its dedication to excellence, the 1500 can also be paired with Canada’s Best-Selling V-8 engine – the 5.7L HEMI VVT V-8. Pumping out 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, the HEMI is a step up in power for the 1500. However, this engine option still manages to keep its performance efficient when paired with its 8-speed transmission. Drivers can get an estimated 11 L/100 km (26 mpg) highway fuel economy.
3.0L EcoDiesel V-6
There isn’t a single engine available for the 1500 that doesn’t come with a badge of honour. The 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6 was named one of Wards’ 10 Best Engines for three consecutive years. Earning a best-in-class 8.0 L/100 km (35 mpg) highway fuel economy, the EcoDiesel is also able to churn out 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. As Canada’s most fuel-efficient full-size pickup, the 1500 makes each mile count.
