eTorque®: The Latest In Ram Innovation

The 2019 Ram 1500 revolutionized the pickup truck segment with its inclusion of an advanced mild hybrid system on two of the three available engines. This 48-volt, battery-powered and belt-driven motor generator provides drivers with enhanced efficiency without compromising performance. While the term "hybrid" faces the stigma of inherently crippling a vehicle's performance capabilities, the utilization of an electronic motor, when properly engineered and integrated, can significantly enhance the overall capabilities of a vehicle. With recent advancements in engineering and electrical automotive technology, the incorporation of Ram's exclusive eTorque® system provides drivers seeking the latest in innovative engineering their preferred balance between efficiency and power.

Uncompromised Performance, Maximized Efficiency

With both the legendary 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 and 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engines receiving eTorque® integration within the 2019 Ram 1500, accompanied by the class-exclusive TorqueFlite® eight-speed automatic transmission tuned to accompany the mild hybrid system for optimal efficiency, smoothness and power, the Ram 1500 surges to unprecedented degrees of capability within the segment. With the eTorque®-equipped 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 offering drivers best-in-class standard V6 horsepower, and the already formidable 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 receiving an additional 130 pound-feet from eTorque® to result in best-in-class V8 towing with a maximum capacity of 12,750 pounds, the eTorque® system proves its worth by pushing these powerful engines into a league of their own within the segment.

Essentially, the eTorque® system functions similarly to an alternator - offering efficient, engine-integrated acquisition of energy. Efficiently starting and stopping an engine without a detriment to battery life and providing additional boost when necessary, the eTorque® system offers smoother, faster shifts, increased power, enhanced efficiency, and better engine cooling - all for a marginally higher price.
