The RAM 1500 is known for its exceptional towing power and payload capacity on the Devine roads. But, you would never expect this powerful pickup truck to have equally impressive fuel economy ratings. The 2021 RAM 1500 fuel economy ratings allow you to get up to 20 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. Explore all of the RAM 1500 mpg ratings by trim and other fuel-efficient features with Brown Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, and feel free to visit our dealership to experience the fuel economy of the RAM 1500 for yourself. 



RAM 1500 Gas Mileage by Engine

The RAM 1500 mpg ratings are made possible with a powerful and fuel-efficient engine under the hood. With the 2021 RAM 1500, you’ll have the choice of three distinct engines, each offering different capabilities. To see what you can get from each engine on the Brown Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram roads, here are each of their respective capabilities: 

3.6L Pentastar V6 Engine with eTorque:

  • (4X2): 20 mpg city/25 mpg highway
  • (4X4): 19 mpg city/24 mpg highway

5.7L HEMI V8 Engine:

  • (4X4): 15 mpg city/21 mpg highway

5.7L HEMI V8 Engine with eTorque:

The RAM 1500 continues to impress with a best-in-class 4×4 driving range of 624 miles, allowing you to spend less time at the gas pumps and more time on the road. 

RAM 1500 eTorque

The eTorque system contributes to much of the impressive RAM 1500 fuel economy ratings. RAM 1500 models equipped with eTorque use a 48-volt belt-driven motor powered by a battery instead of using an alternator. You would normally expect this slight hybrid system in electric cars, but inside the RAM 1500, the eTorque system creates more torque, payload, and towing power. Plus, you get a better fuel economy rating, resulting in a wonderful combination of power and fuel efficiency. 

Other RAM 1500 Fuel-Efficient Systems

The RAM 1500 gas mileage is aided by the innovative and powerful engines under the hood. However, the RAM 1500 also implements some other fuel-efficient systems to help you drive smarter on the Uvalde roads: 

  • Standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission for improved performance and control
  • All-new RAM 1500 features an elevated hood and redesigned roof for a more aerodynamic frame.
  • Class-exclusive air dam, which lowers one the RAM 1500 reaches 30 mph. Standard on RAM 1500 Rebel and non-air suspension models.
  • Active Air Dam – Standard in the RAM 1500 Rebel and non-air suspension models, this class-exclusive air dam lowers once the truck reaches 30 miles per hour.

The RAM 1500 mpg ratings are just one of the reasons that the truck has remained one of the leaders in its class. Experience everything the RAM 1500 can offer you when you visit Brown Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram for a test drive in Devine.
