The Ram 1500 has a variety of engine options that add to the vehicle’s versatility. These engines include the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with eTorque, 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, 3.6-liter V-6 engine with eTorque, and 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine. Standard on all trims is the 3.6-liter V-6 engine with eTorque. This engine has 305 horsepower and 296 pound-feet of torque.
You do have the option to upgrade to one of the 5.7-liter V-8 engines if you are looking for more power. The 5.7-liter V-8 engines come with 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine gets 260 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.
With so much power, the Ram 1500 delivers quality performance when it comes to towing and carrying large loads. The 3.6-liter V-6 engine has a maximum towing capacity of 7,730 pounds.

There is also a Rambox cargo management system that offers additional storage in the back of the truck.
