More eTorque, More Power in the 2019 Ram 1500

Written By, Brad R.

What separates the latest generation of the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 from the previous generation is the eTorque system that makes its debut. What does this new technology entail for the latest Ram 1500? Improved payload, towing capacity, better fuel efficiency and more. The list goes on and on, as do the reasons why Ram has invested in this technology. It all speaks to their commitment of raising the brand and the level of value for customers.

So you know, the eTorque is essentially an alternator replacement serving as the pickup’s electrical generator. Most of the 2019 Ram 1500 is run by 12-volt power, and the eTorque is actually a 48-volt system.The eTorque is able to concert the 12 volts into 48 volts and services the vehicle to do more. The battery is charged and the motor quickly restarts when the automatic stop/start system is in use, serving as a mild-hybrid. This technology is what makes the better gas mileage possible for owners. The eTorque is able to run its own electricity into the truck and the two systems work together to great effect. Check out these results!

More eTorque, Please

Since the eTorque system has improved just about everything else inside the all-new Ram 1500, shouldn’t the torque be higher as well? Yep. In fact, the torque has been raised to an extra 90 lb-ft of torque in the V6 engine and gets an increase of 130 lb-ft of torque for the V8 engine in the all-new 2019 Ram 1500. The eTorque system weighs about 100 pounds more, but the boost in efficiency and power more than make up for the weight increase. Owners won’t have to worry as much overall, because the 2019 Ram 1500 lost 225 pounds of weight with a refined high-strength steel frame change. Sleeker and more powerful, the best part for owners is knowing how much stronger the eTorque system addition makes the latest Ram 1500.

How Much Towing Power Does the Newest 2019 Ram 1500 Have?

12,750 pounds of maximum towing capacity. That means a driver does not have to worry about taking on nearly any job. Drivers who own a Ram 1500 have known for years about the legendary power and efficiency. What makes this new-generation 1500 so unique is how it's able to push the envelope yet again despite losing weight. The increased torque results that all-new Ram can generate is remarkable and a great reason owners are excited to drive one. The 2019 Ram 1500 is available today through NowCar and we are quite fond of this truck for obvious reasons.
