What is eTorque?

How are the 2021 RAM 1500 mpg ratings so high? A big contributor to this truck’s fuel efficiency is the RAM eTorque system, an innovative technology that uses a battery-powered 48-volt belt-driven motor instead of an alternator. Similar to the hybrid systems found on electric and hybrid models, this technology allows for more torque, higher towing capacity, and of course, better fuel economy specs in Madison. eTorque is paving the way for better gas mileage across the RAM lineup, and can be found in the many RAM 1500 trim levels.

RAM 1500 Efficiency Systems

In addition to the eTorque system, there are several other components that help raise the RAM 1500 fuel economy:

  • Design – Credit the elevated hood and thoughtfully designed roof for lower drag coefficient that helps contribute to better gas mileage.
  • Active Air Dam – Once you reach 30 mph, this class-exclusive air dam lowers for enhanced efficiency. Find it standard in the RAM 1500 Rebel and non-air suspension models.
  • Transmission – Ready for ultimate performance? The RAM 1500 comes standard with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission for improved driving and handling regardless of what lies ahead.
