New 2016 Ram 1500 at Bosak Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM for Merrillville, IN
Fuel economy continues to be the number one unmet need that customers have in the truck market. That is why we have designed the 2016 Ram 1500 to lead pickup truck fuel economy with the exclusive 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine delivering 240 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 29 miles per gallon. From the high-quality cabin materials to the easy-to-use infotainment system and remarkably supple ride, there's plenty here to keep bringing customers back year after year to the Ram Truck Brand. Like the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 and 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 gasoline engines already offered on the Ram 1500, the EcoDiesel V-6 is mated to the TorqueFlite, the only eight-speed automatic transmission offered in the half-ton class.
Under the 1500's Hood
Adjustable air springs allow drivers to raise and lower the vehicle to one of five ride height settings. A heavy load can make it hard to get moving forward. Hill Start Assist detects when your truck is on an incline, so when you take your foot off the brake you don't roll backwards. The 2016 Ram 1500's base engine is a 3.6-liter gasoline V6 which generates 305 horsepower, optional are the legendary 5.7 HEMI® V8 Engine with Fuel Saver Technology, and the fuel efficient 3.6L Ecodiesel V6 Engine. Our Ram trucks have evolved from decades of rigorous testing and safety and security improvements to deliver one of our most advanced trucks on the road. While the 5.7-liter V8 has the highest rated towing capacity, the diesel V6 is a close second, and it offers much better fuel economy to boot.
