The new 3.6-liter V6 boasts 42 percent more horsepower and 20 percent more fuel mileage. Other advances in efficiency include available stop-start technology and a new standard eight-speed automatic transmission that really pays dividends for towing and hauling. This new truck comes with longer bed availabilities, more upscale interior, smooth ride, powerful engine lineup, great fuel economy on V6 models, 8-speed transmission, and UConnect infotainment and connectivity options.
Ram 1500’s frame has been redesigned as well. The new frame is both stronger and lighter than those on previous versions. Furthermore, a newly available air suspension offers multiple different settings for ride height. The air suspension also has an automatic load-leveling feature, for better towing and hauling performance. The new 3.6-liter V6 engine comes standard on the 2013 Ram 1500 SL. This power source is both stronger and more efficient than any previous V6 Ram engine.
The new V6 is matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission and offers EPA-estimated fuel economy of 17 mpg city/25 mpg highway and 20 mpg combined for a 2WD Quad Cab.
