2018 Ram 1500 Engine Details and Specifications

In this 2018 Ram 1500 Model Information, you will find that—as always—you have a nice amount of powertrains from which to choose. The standard engine for most variants is a 3.6 liter V6 that generates 305hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. From the Rebel trim on up, the standard power plant is a 5.7 liter V8 that makes for a healthy 395hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. You can also go with a 3.0 liter diesel engine that provides 240hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.

Across the lineup, an eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, and rear-wheel drive is the norm. However, depending on your needs, you can go with a capable four-wheel drive system if you wish. A 26-gallon fuel tank is standard on just about all models, which comes in handy considering the good-for-the-class fuel economy. Depending on the powertrain and the trim, EPA estimates fall in the range of 15/25 miles per gallon.

Safety precautions and features are only one part of the 2018 Ram 1500's versatility.
