2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 Special Edition RST Rally

Behind the wheel of the new 2021 RAM 1500, you can expect to earn up to 20 mpg city/25 mpg highway, thanks to features like a 3.6L V6 Pentastar engine, eTorque capability, and rear-wheel drive. Throughout its lineup, the new RAM 1500 offers incredible fuel economy, giving drivers around Sioux City the ability to travel in confidence. Below, you can learn more about the RAM 1500 MPG ratings: 



RAM 1500 Fuel Economy Per Engine 

The 2021 RAM 1500 offers three engines, and fuel economy ratings vary depending on the engine you select: 

3.0L EcoDiesel V6 Engine: 

  • 23 mpg city / 33 mpg highway (2WD)
  • 21 mpg city / 29 mpg highway (4WD)

3.6L Pentastar® V6 Engine With eTorque:

  • 20 mpg city / 26 mpg highway (2WD)
  • 19 mpg city / 24 mpg highway (4WD)

5.7L HEMI® V8 Engine With eTorque: 

  • 17 mpg city / 23 mpg highway (2WD)
  • 15 mpg city / 22 mpg highway (4WD)

Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8 Engine: 

  • 10 mpg city / 14 mpg highway (4WD)

What Is eTorque?

One of the systems that’s critical in helping the RAM 1500 achieve great fuel economy ratings is eTorque. In place of an alternator, models that use eTorque feature a 48-volt belt-driven motor that’s powered by a battery. Although you might think a mild hybrid system is better suited to a hybrid or electric car, it creates more torque and a greater payload or towing capacity. What’s more, it results in greater fuel economy. 

RAM 1500 Efficiency Systems

In addition to its three fuel-efficient engines, the RAM 1500 offers the following features to help increase fuel economy: 

  • Transmission – A standard TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission adjusts shift points to boost fuel-efficiency and power. 
  • Design – The RAM 1500 comes with an elevated hood and a restyled roof to reduce drag coefficient. 
  • Active Air Dam – Active Air Dam is standard on the RAM 1500 Rebel and non-air suspension models. Once the truck reaches 30 mph, the Active Air Dam lowers.
