No Shortage Of Power On 2017 RAM Trucks

It doesn't matter if you drive a RAM 1500, 2500 or even the 3500 you are going to have more than enough horses under the hood. After all, you most likely bought your truck or are looking into buying a truck so you can tow the boat to the lake on the weekends or trailer horses or any number of things that requires power and an extra-large cargo space. So let's explore power on the RAM 1500, 2500, and 3500.

Every RAM truck has more than one powertrain option so you can pick the level of power to fit your needs. The RAM 1500 has three engine options, first is the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine with 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel also offers best in class fuel efficiency with 29 highway mpg and a driving range of 754 highway miles. The next powertrain option on the RAM 1500 is the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that delivers 305 horsepower and has a max towing capacity of 10,690 pounds. Next is the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. This 5.7liter V8 is different from the 5.7-liter V8 that comes standard on RAM 2500 models.

The RAM 2500 5.7-liter HEMI V8 offers slightly less horsepower, 383, but is equipped with significantly more towing power; with a max towing capacity of 13,890 lbs. The other two powertrain options on the RAM 2500 include the heavy duty 6.4-liter V8 with best in class towing of 16,320 lbs. and best in class horsepower if 410. Then there is the even more powerful 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel engine with 370 horsepower and is capable of towing up to 17,980 lbs.

Last but certainly not least is the RAM 3500. There are only two powertrain options available on the 3500, first is the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine with 410 horsepower, 16,520 max towing and 7,390 max payload. Then there is the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel but this isn't the same engine as on the 2500. This bad boy offers you 385 horsepower and 6,720 max payload but its towing power is something to marvel at. The 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel has a max towing capacity of 31,210 pounds. That is a lot of power
