Big news for the half-ton is the small but powerful 3.6L Pentastar V-6 engine. This engine is common across the Chrysler brand (such as in the ’12 Jeep Wrangler and Grand Cherokee) and really packs a punch. With 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, it outperforms the old V-6 by 20 percent in fuel economy. The Ram 1500 is also available with the returning 4.7L V-8 and 5.7L Hemi V-8.
