PERFORMANCE

    From the Class-Exclusive 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 (late availability) with impressive 420 lb-ft of low-end torque, to the legendary 5.7L HEMI VVT V8 with a towing capacity up to 4,826 kg (10,640 lb) - the Ram 1500 will meet all your capability needs. Factor in the Segment-Exclusive TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, the Segment-Exclusive Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension, and a choice of 4x4 transfer case systems and you'll see why the Ram 1500 is a three-time winner of the Canadian Truck King Challenge.



3.6L Pentastar VVT V6
The 3.6L Pentastar VVT V6 is Canada's Best-Selling Engine. In the Ram 1500, it delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque for dependable performance and proven reliability. Taking advantage of advanced technology like Variable Valve Timing (VVT), efficiency is maximized to give you impressive fuel economy as efficient as 9.6 L/100 km (29 mpg) highway.

Transmission(s)

The TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission is programmed with 40 different shift maps to ensure that whatever your on-the-road requirements are, the drivetrain is optimized for performance and efficiency. Additionally, the transmission's Thermal Management System optimizes fluid temperature for best efficiency and durability.

5.7L HEMI VVT V8
The iconic 5.7L HEMI V8 is Canada's Best-Selling V8 engine based on the past 6 years of registration. In the Ram 1500, it produces a powerful 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, and is no slouch when it comes to fuel saving. Its FuelSaver Multi-Displacement System (MDS) technology deactivates 4 cylinders while cruising and idling - instantly reverting back to 8 cylinders when needed. Variable Valve Timing (VVT) allows for optimal engine breathing throughout a wide rpm range - for example, increasing torque for towing and hauling when required.

Transmission(s)

There are two transmissions available with the 5.7L HEMI VVT V8, depending on the model chosen - either the fuel-efficient TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic, or the proven 6-speed automatic.

3.0L EcoDiesel V6
The Ram 1500 is the only half-ton truck in the industry to offer a diesel engine - the Class-exclusive 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 delivers 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque achieved at an impressively low 2,000 rpm. The EcoDiesel V6 is late availability. Wards has named it one of their 10 Best Engines 3 years in a row, and no wonder - considering the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine also delivers Best-in-Class fuel economy as efficient as 8.0 L/100 km (35 mpg) highway and has a recommended oil change interval of up to 16,000 km to lower your total operating cost. Whatever your driving environment, this engine delivers efficient capability.
Transmission(s)
6-Speed Automatic Transmission
Mated to the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 is a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. With 40 different shift maps available, it automatically optimizes the drivetrain's performance to give you stronger power when you need it and overall fuel economy that makes the Ram 1500 Canada's most fuel-efficient full-size pickup.



TECHNOLOGY

    Inside and out, the Ram 1500 features standard and available systems that are technologically advanced and designed to enhance your safety, convenience, comfort and entertainment.
You can park easier, take advantage of hands-free communication and voice commands, and customize your vehicle-data display, all with simple and intuitive technology features for truly innovative control.



ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera
The available ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera gives you a clear view of what's behind your vehicle when in Reverse. The ParkView image is displayed in the rearview mirror, or, when equipped with either the 5-inch or 8.4-inch Uconnect multimedia centre, it's displayed on the touchscreen - as are dynamic grid lines to help you steer accurately into position.
Additionally, Uconnect systems equipped with the largest-in-class 8.4-inch touchscreen offer view-at-speed capability. The ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera image is available in any gear, at any speed, with a touch of a button - perfect for checking the trailer hitch when towing.

Premium Bi-functional Projector Headlamp
An alternative to the standard bulb and reflector arrangement, the available premium bi-functional projector headlamps feature a 70 mm lens to create the ideal light pattern for vision ahead and peripherally. The bi-functional design means it offers these benefits in both high- and low-beam operation.



TOWING AND PAYLOAD

The Ram 1500 is engineered with towing capabilities that are compliant with the Society of Automotive Engineers J2807 towing standard - GCWR and trailer weight ratings that reflect real-world conditions.
This means that with your Ram 1500 you can tow and haul confidently - tow up to 10,640 lb (4,826 kg) and haul a payload of up to 1,880 lb (853 kg). The Ram 1500 comes standard with a 4- and 7-pin wiring harness and offers an integrated Class IV hitch receiver and Trailer Brake Control system.



Segment-Exclusive Multilink Coil Spring Rear Suspension
Available on no other pickup in the class, and standard on the Ram 1500, the multi-link coil-spring rear suspension delivers tough towing and hauling capability without sacrificing comfort and handling.
The coil springs and heavy-duty shock absorbers combine for a lightweight design that not only soaks up bumps, but also provides more damping resistance to control upward and downward wheel motion, for optimal comfort and vehicle control.

Power-Folding Trailer Tow Mirrors
Take control of towing, hauling and off-road adventure with the Class-Exclusive Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension System, standard on the Rebel and Laramie Limited models. This advanced technology system performs 2 important functions.
First, it maintains a steady level regardless of load, to maintain a constant driving profile and ideal headlamp-to-road angle. Second, it raises or lowers the vehicle depending on the need with 5 available modes to choose from.

SAFETY

Advanced technologies designed to protect you are focused on operating ease and occupant comfort. Ram 1500 keeps you and yours safe and secure while delivering the highest degree of performance, convenience and capability.

ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM (ABS)
This four-channel system monitors each wheel's speed and allows backup braking should one of the two braking circuits be compromised.
TRACTION CONTROL
Integrated with the ABS, Traction Control regulates wheelspin at all speeds. Impending wheel-slip during acceleration results in throttle modifications to reduce torque; in extreme situations it will selectively apply brakes to maintain control. It can be turned off with a console-mounted button.
READY ALERT BRAKING
The system senses when the driver's foot is lifted from the accelerator, and then instantly applies a slight brake force to ensure brake pads and discs are correctly lined up should a sudden stop be necessary.
TRAILER SWAY CONTROL
This system detects trailer sway and will automatically compensate for it by applying selective brake pressure on the tow vehicle's opposite side to counteract and reduce the sway.
ELECTRONIC ROLL MITIGATION (ERM)
Operational only during a severe or an evasive driving manoeuvre, this system anticipates wheel lift and applies the appropriate brake (or reduces engine power) to reduce lift.
ELECTRONIC BRAKE-FORCE DISTRIBUTION
This system regulates braking pressure from front to rear to minimize stopping distances for ideal control.
RAIN BRAKE SUPPORT
When the windshield wipers are activated, this standard system pulses the brake pads closer to the spinning rotors, helping to keep the rotors and pads dry to help enable the shortest stopping distance.
HYDRAULIC BOOST COMPENSATION
Should a failure occur in the vacuum brake booster or any related line (e.g., a rupture from tough off-roading), the brake controller will run the ABS pump and the brakes will perform as normal until the failure is serviced.
HILL START ASSIST
On hills or inclines, the vehicle is held stationary for two seconds after the brakes have been released to help prevent rollback.
