RAM 1500 Fuel Economy by Engine and Drivetrain

Your 2021 RAM 1500 can be built out with one of three strong engines and equipped with either RWD or 4×4, depending on what type of performance you want on Blue Springs job sites. Take a look below to find out how your configuration will affect the RAM 1500 fuel economy:

3.6L Pentastar V6 Engine with eTorque

  • Fuel Efficiency (4X2): 20 mpg city/25 mpg highway
  • Fuel Efficiency (4X4): 19 mpg city/24 mpg highway

5.7L HEMI V8 Engine

  • Fuel Efficiency (4X2): 15 mpg city/22 mpg highway
  • Fuel Efficiency (4X4): 15 mpg city/21 mpg highway

5.7L HEMI V8 Engine with eTorque

  • Fuel Efficiency (4X2): 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway
  • Fuel Efficiency (4X4): 17 mpg city/22 mpg highway

What Is eTorque for the RAM 1500?

How are the RAM 1500 mpg ratings able to reach such impressive heights on Independence roads? One system you can thank is the eTorque mild hybrid system. RAM 1500 trims that have eTorque use a battery-powered 48-volt belt-driven motor instead of an alternator. Instinct might suggest that a mild hybrid system is better suited to hybrid and electric vehicles, but when you put it in the RAM 1500, the result is greater torque, higher payload, and more impressive towing—all while having a positive impact on the RAM 1500 fuel economy!

Other Features That Help the RAM 1500 MPG

The eTorque mild hybrid system is an available system for the RAM 1500, but there are other standard-equipped systems that also lend themselves to the RAM 1500 gas mileage:

  • TorqueFlite Transmission – The RAM 1500 gets a standard TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, which adjusts shift points for superior efficiency and performance in Blue Springs.
  • Exterior Design – The 2021 RAM 1500 is designed with a raised hood and more aerodynamic roof, effectively lowering its drag coefficient and boosting gas mileage.
  • Active Air Dam – The RAM 1500 Rebel and non-air suspension models have a class-exclusive active air dam that lowers when the truck reaches 30 mph.
