The 2022 Ram 1500 base engine is a V6 305 horsepower with a mild-hybrid eTorque system that makes the torque go up during acceleration. The engine is powerful enough for everyday driving, and has more than enough muscle to even tow small trailers. For significant hauling, one of the two 395-horsepower V8s (one contains the mild-hybrid system while the other does not) or the V6 260-horsepower diesel engine is your best bet. Compared to the standard V6, all of them have significantly higher towing capacity, and the V8s also offer faster acceleration. That said, in terms of acceleration, these V8s still fall some way short of the TRX model's 702 horsepower supercharged V8, which is the same engine used in the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Almost every other pickup truck will be destroyed by this truck in a sprint. It can run a quarter mile in less than 13 seconds and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a blistering fast 4.5 seconds. All engines come with an eight-speed, smooth-shifting automatic transmission.
