The full-size truck segment grows more-competitive by the year. However, with its latest generation impressing both customers and critics alike, the Ram 1500 stands boldly at the front of the pack. With its refined and versatile accommodations, potent engine options, and outstanding ride quality, the Ram 1500 earned the number-one ranking on Edmunds' list of top trucks for 20201.

At Falvey's Motors, we want you to be informed on everything regarding your potential truck choice. Today, we're highlighting the powertrain and safety options that are available for the Ram 1500.

Powertrains

Available in rear-wheel and four-wheel-drive, the Ram 1500 provides a choice of three engine options. It comes standard with a 3.6-liter V-6 that generates 205 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. A 5.7-liter V-8 (395 horsepower, 410 pound-feet of torque) comes standard on Laramie, Longhorn, and Limited trims, and is an available option on the supporting tiers. When properly equipped, a V-8 Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds.

If you do a lot of towing and want to maximize fuel efficiency, the available 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine is a compelling option. Generated 480 pound-feet of torque, it enables a max tow rating of 12,560 and achieves an EPA-estimated 32 mpg on the highway.

Each engine comes with a smooth and precise eight-speed automatic transmission.
