There are no questions that the Ram 1500's durability leaves the competition in the dust. What durability features set this light-duty pickup apart from others? All of its durability features. In the interest of time, our Ramey Chevrolet Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM Tazewell team chose the following.

Standout Engine Lineup

The Ram 1500's six trims benefit from an engine lineup of four engines. They are the:

  • 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6
  • 3.6-liter Pentastar V6
  • 5.7-liter HEMI V8
  • 6.2-liter Supercharged HEMI

Both the 3.6-liter Pentastar and the 5.7-liter HEMI have available eTorque, a Mild Hybrid Technology System. The system recruits a 48-volt battery-operated motor, contributing an additional 130 lb.-fit. of torque to the engine's 410 lb.-ft. of torque. The 5.7-liter HEMI also boasts 395 horsepower. That's plenty to fuel your grittiest residential or commercial worksite chores in Tazewell.

The Strength of Steel

The Ram 1500's frame is 98-percent high-strength steel. This makes the Ram 1500 exceptionally durable, rigid and crashworthy. It also helps the Ram 1500 successfully tow up to 12,750 pounds and support a 2,300 max payload.
