The 2022 RAM 1500 Has Five Powerful Engines to Choose

September 28,2022

The 2022 RAM 1500 has a robust feel to it, all thanks to the various engine options it has. There are five different engine types, all of them with the same drivetrain and transmission. Of those five engine types, all of them are V8 engines except for two that are V6. The basic trim of the 2022 RAM 1500 has a 3.6 liter V6 Pentastar engine with eTorque hybrid technology. This V6 engine is capable of generating 365 horsepower and can tow up to 7,730 lbs. The second V6 engine is a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 that can generate 260 Horsepower. However, it has a much higher towing capacity of up to 12,560 lbs. This towing power is mainly due to the higher torque produced. Now that we have covered both the V6 engines let’s look at the V8 ones. We have a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that can generate 395 Horsepower and can tow up to 11,610 lbs. However, when it is equipped with the eTorque, the towing capacity is further increased to 12,750 lbs. The horsepower remains the same. Perhaps the most powerful of the 2022 RAM 1500’s engines is the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine. It can generate an amazing 702 Horsepower. It is also capable of taking the RAM model from 0-60 mph in mere 4.5 seconds. All the engines are equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission which delivers a constant power supply. None of the engines are available in manual transmission.
