What engine options are available for the 2022 Ram 1500?
Power has always been the name of the game, with the Ram 1500 and the 2022 version keeps the tradition alive. Most trims will have a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers an incredible 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, but you can opt for a more powerful 5.7-liter V8 that doles out up to 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. On the V6, the Ram 1500 comes standard with an eTorque system which uses a 48-volt battery to help improve the fuel economy. This system is optional of the V8. If you want an engine with more diesel power, the Ram has you covered with an optional 3.0-liter turbodiesel that produces up to 260 horsepower and an outstanding 480 lb-ft of torque. Of course, we can’t talk about the Ram 1500 without mentioning the TRX trim, which was first introduced to the Ram 1500 last year. It returns in 2022 and brings along with it a supercahrged 6.2-liter V8 that scorches the pavement with 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. All of these engines pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and when the Ram is fully equipped, it can haul up to 12,750 pounds with a payload capacity of 2,300 pounds.
