There are two variants and the engine units vary as per these variants. Performance specs of the RWD model:

Although the 3.6 L provides for a marginally better mileage, compared to the 5.7s sheer performance, the latter makes for a better option. Company sources say that this Hemi engine can pull off 10,250 lbs. load too although this figure can only be tested out to be true.
An 8-speed auto transmission mated with both the engines provides consistent and a readily-available performance irrespective of the terrain. These multi-faceted performance figures account for every scenario aspect that a pickup truck ought to engage in. And with added maneuverability techs such as traction control, ABS, hill descent, cruise control etc. Both these variants of the 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel Crew Cab are more than able to cope with any situation that is thrown at them.
