What Is eTorque?

How does the RAM 1500 accomplish such strong fuel economy returns, you ask? It’s largely thanks to the eTorque Mild Hybrid System, which replaces the traditional alternator with a 48-volt, battery-powered, belt-driven motor generator. And while the term hybrid is typically associated with efficiency, this system in particular also boosts performance, torque, payload, and towing.

RAM 1500 Fuel Economy Features

In addition to the eTorque system, the RAM 1500 comes equipped with a number of engineering and technology elements that boost its efficiency. Some of the RAM 1500 fuel economy features include:

  • TorqueFlite® eight-speed automatic transmission: This specialized transmission relies on the eTorque system to improve efficiency and performance by automatically handling and optimizing shift changes and points.
  • Active Air Dam: The RAM 1500 Rebel and models with non-air suspensions have this active front air dam that automatically extends downward to help reduce drag.
  • Aerodynamics: With an elevated hood, a sculpted roof design, and active aerodynamic features, the RAM 1500 deflects air and directs it appropriately to the rear spoiler for reduced drag.
  • Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension: At highway speeds, this suspension lowers the vehicle to reduce drag and promote greater efficiency.
