When the 2019 Ram 1500 first was announced one of the biggest changes was the addition of a light electrification system to both the V-6 and the V-8 engine options. It was assumed that these changes would improve the fuel economy of this great truck when compared with the 2018 model, but at that point EPA-estimated numbers were not yet available. However, that has changed now! We have city and high eTorque Ram 1500 fuel economy numbers, and they are enough to turn heads and lighten the load on the wallet.

City and Highway eTorque Ram 1500 Fuel Economy

Fuel economy may take a back seat when hard-working drivers are looking for a truck, but saving money at the pump can still be extremely important. Thanks to eTorque hybridization, the 2019 Ram 1500 will improve by 3 mpg and will be able to offer up to 22 mpg for its combined city and highway rating. This makes the new 2019 Ram 1500 the full-size truck with the best fuel economy of all gas options. Engines like the EcoDiesel will still offer more fuel economy, but for drivers who don’t want diesel this is a great option loaded with premium features. You can see each engine currently available on the 2019 Ram 1500 (including the non-eTorque V-8) broken down below:

What if I don’t want eTorque on my Ram 1500?

If you don’t want fuel savings, or aren’t interested in the stop/start functions and other new parts of the eTorque powertains, you do have options. The 5.7-liter V-8 engine will continue being available with or without hybridization. If you like the previous generation Ram 1500 but really need a new truck, the Ram 1500 Classic will also be available.
