First of all, in order to reduce fuel consumption, the Dodge RAM Company will launch the 2019 RAM 1500 eTorque. In fact, this model can also be called a mild hybrid. Of course, the main rivals will be Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra.
The exterior design features a large radiator grille, massive bumpers, large halogen or LED headlamps. In the cabin are cloth or leather seats, air-conditioning or dual-zone automatic climate control. It also has a 5.0-inch infotainment screen or an 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen (optional 12.0-inch vertical screen).
Like the standard model for 2019, it offers an extended and crew cab (with two or four doors), with two variants of the load compartment. Although it is not currently available, we expect to receive and a regular cab. Exterior dimensions 2019 RAM 1500 eTorque: length from 228.9 to 241.8 inch (5814-6142 mm), width 82.1 inch (2085 mm), height from 77.4 to 77.7 inch (1966-1974 mm) and wheelbase of 140.5 to 153.5 inch (3569 -3899 mm). It will probably be heavier but with a much larger towing capacity of 12,750 lbs (5783 kg). They will probably have the same seven levels of trim, designed to accommodate five or six passengers. Also, placed on the same wheels.
Embedded is a 48-volt electrical system with an electric ancillary engine, which adds a torque of 90 lb-ft (122 Nm) to the V6 and 130 lb-ft (176 Nm) of the V8. Also, serves as a starter. So, the first is the 3.6-liter V6 engine of 305 hp and 359 lb-ft (487 Nm) of torque, and the second is the 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine of 395 hp and 540 lb-ft (732 Nm) of torque. Of course, the drive is on the rear wheels or on all four wheels, combined with an 8-speed (V6) or 6-speed (V8) automatic transmission. The first has a fuel consumption of 20/25/22 mpg (RWD) and 19/23/21 mpg (AWD), while the second engine consumption is 17/23/19 mpg (RWD) and 17/22/19 mpg (AWD).
Unfortunately, the official information on price 2019 RAM 1500 eTorque is still missing. Although fuel consumption is not a crucial factor in truck choice, we hope that these models will encourage competing companies to develop new systems. The only information from the manufacturer is that all V6 models will have as a standard eTorque system. Also, the option will also be offered on V8 models. Of course, at an extra charge, probably for $ 1,450. We recall, the price of 2019 RAM 1500 ranges from $ 31,695 to $ 57,890.
