2018 Ram 1500: Optimum Engine Options and Fuel Economy

You'll want your pickup truck to feel like it was personally made for you, and one way to do that is by having options. The Ram 1500 provides plenty of engine choices, including:

  • A 3.6L V6 that produces 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. This base engine has an EPA-estimated 17/25 MPG city/highway, pairing power with efficiency for daily driving.
  • A 5.7L V8 that puts out 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. This powerhouse of an engine has an EPA-estimated 15/22 MPG city/highway, not giving up much fuel efficiency for immense power.
  • A 3.0L V6 turbodiesel that produces 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. This engine gets the best gas mileage, with an impressive EPA-estimated 21/29 MPG city/highway while still providing plenty of power.

With power like this, you won't have to worry about stopping at the pump often, and you'll be zooming from one jobsite to the next.

Towing Capacity and Maximum Payload

When you opt for a pickup truck, you're more than likely looking for something that can tow and carry a few extra things. The 2018 Ram 1500 can tow up to 10,640 pounds with the V8 option, which is plenty of pull to hitch up the boat, trailer, or large equipment for a job.

 Loading up the truck is no issue, either, with the Ram 1500's maximum payload of up to 1,880 pounds, when properly equipped. So, pile in your tools, or load up everyone's luggage for your next family vacation.

Ram 1500 Cabs and Bed Sizes

In the Ram 1500, your bed size depends on which cab you choose-again, more great options offered. Such available cabs include:

  • Crew Cab: offers a 6-foot, 4-inch, or 5-foot, 7-inch bed, and seats up to six passengers.
  • Quad Cab®: offers a 6-foot, 4-inch bed, and also seats up to six passengers.
  • Regular Cab: offers a 6-foot, 4-inch bed, or an 8-foot bed, and seats up to three passengers.

Depending on how much passenger and cargo space you're looking for, you'll find the right combination with any of these options.
