If you’re like most of our Bessemer customers, you don’t want to have to empty your bank account to keep your gas tank full.

To prove it to you, we’ve listed out the EPA-estimated RAM 1500 MPG below by engine and drivetrain.

RAM 1500 Gas Mileage by Drivetrain and Engine

2021 RAM 1500 Towing Dashboard

While most iterations of this truck have great gas mileage, the RAM 1500 fuel economy differs a little based on the engine and whether the truck is a 4×2 or 4×4. The one exception would be the 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® V8 that comes in the RAM TRX. But that engine can deliver an incredible 702 horsepower, 650 lb-ft of torque, and reach 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. Here’s a breakout of the EPA-estimated RAM 1500 gas mileage by drivetrain and engine:

2021 RAM 1500 MPG – 4×2 Drivetrain

  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 Engine with eTorque – 20 mpg city/25 mpg highway/22 combined
  • 5.7L HEMI® V8 Engine – 15 mpg city/22 mpg highway/17 combined (popular with Birmingham drivers)
  • 5.7L HEMI® V8 Engine with eTorque – 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway/19 combined
  • 3.0L Ecodiesel V6 Engine – 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway/26 combined

2021 RAM 1500 MPG – 4×4 Drivetrain

  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 Engine with eTorque -19 mpg city/24 mpg highway/22 combined
  • 5.7L HEMI® V8 Engine – 15 mpg city/21 mpg highway/17 combined (popular with Hoover drivers)
  • 5.7L HEMI® V8 Engine with eTorque – 17 mpg city/22 mpg highway/19 combined
  • 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® V8 – 10 mpg city/14 mpg highway/12 mpg combined 

How the 5.7L HEMI® V8 Engine Gets Good Gas Mileage

How can a V8 pickup Engine get such good gas mileage? The Mild Hybrid System in the RAM 1500 5.7L HEMI® V8 Engine with eTorque has a lot to do with it. This system blends fuel-efficient technologies with finely tuned engineering to decrease gas usage.
