Kindersley: Check Out the Engines on the 2022 Ram 1500

June 2,2022

Boasting innovative technology to boost the overall performance, the new lineup of 2022 Ram 1500 pickups is back and better than ever before. With an outstanding towing capacity of 5,783 kg (12,750 lbs) and a maximum payload of 1,043 kg (2,300 lbs), you can take one of these models home after a quick visit with Energy Dodge in Saskatchewan.   The first engine for the Tradesman and Big Horn is the 3.6-litre V6 made by Pentastar. Pumping out 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, it uses an 8-speed automatic transmission and your choice of a 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain. Next is the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 that delivers 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. Both motors can be paired with the eTorque 48-volt mild hybrid system that adds up to 130 lb-ft of torque launch for optimized low-speed acceleration. This is especially helpful for hauling heavy loads.   You can also get the 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 that produces 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the TRX off-roading trim comes with the supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8. Making a Best-In-Class 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, it is mated with a full-time 4x4 unit with selectable modes depending on the type of terrain.   Contact us today to learn more!
