On a yearly basis, it is normal for car manufacturers to introduce and change the engine they equip their car models with. With the 2014 Ram 1500 pickup truck, Ram is continuously looking for ways to top itself and provide a powerful engine capable of the highest towing capacity available. And with a name to live up to, the 2014 Ram engine continues to be recognized as the best towing capacity for its models.
After the launch of the 2014 Ram 1500 truck, it did not take the car manufacturer to announce that this is the vehicle carrying the best-in-class tow rating possible for a truck running on a gasoline-powered V8 engine. Available with three engine options, there are endless reasons why you should pick a Ram truck to help you with your towing needs. The most notable, however, is the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine that has gained the best-in-class tow rating recognition for its impressive results.
Here are the towing capacity of the 2014 Ram 1500 truck engines:
- 3.6-liter V6 engine – 4700-4800 lbs.
- 5.7-liter V8 engine – 5100-8600 lbs.
- 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine – 9200 lbs.
Despite these powerful towing capacities, the Ram engines are also known for their MPG ratings while performing a tow. Here are their estimates:
- 3.6-liter V6 engine- 4700- 25 mpg highway
- 5.7-liter V8 engine – 5100 lbs. – 22 mpg highway
- 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine – 36 highway
