2017 Ram 1500 Sport: Engine Options

The 2WD option will arrive with the next features:

  • Engine Type – 5.7 L V8
  • Engine Output – 395 HP @ 5,600 rpm and 410 lb-ft @ 3,950 rpm
  • Towing Capacity – 8,210 lbs.
  • EPA – 15/22/19 mpg [City/Highway/Combined]

A 2WD or rear wheel drive pickup with that much power at the pedal is always a pickup truck fans dream. Chrysler’s Hemi engines have their own cult being high on power and having pure unadulterated adrenaline.

The 4WD Hemi 2017 Ram 1500 Sport variant allows for better traction for all-weather and all-terrain movement although it loses out on highway mileage to some extent. Specs are:

  • Engine Type – 5.7 L V8
  • Engine Output – 395 HP @ 5,600 rpm and 410 lb-ft @ 3,950 rpm
  • Towing Capacity – 8,040 lbs.
  • EPA – 15/21/19 mpg [City/Highway/Combined]

The regular 4WD variant comes with a separate turbo-charged engine and its specs read as follows:

  • Engine Type – 3.6 L V6 turbocharged
  • Engine Output – 305 HP @ 6,400 rpm and 296 lb-ft @ 4,175 rpm
  • Towing Capacity – 8,070 lbs.
  • EPA – 16/23/20mpg [City/Highway/Combined]

With its high quality turbo, this engine can offer lugging capacity at a better mileage and surprisingly stays well away from the consensus of any turbo-lag. Being a 4Wd, it is also more than capable to go through its paces in any terrain or weather condition. Transmission is a standard 8-peed auto with an optional manual shift-ability.
