RAM 1500 Fuel Economy Overview

The exact 2021 RAM 1500 gas mileage you’ll have on Portland roads and beyond varies depending on which of the lineup’s several engine options suits you best. Choose from several V6 and V8 configurations to take your RAM 1500 fuel economy and power to the next level:


3.0L EcoDiesel V6 Engine: 

  • 23 mpg city / 33 mpg highway (2WD)
  • 21 mpg city / 29 mpg highway (4WD)


3.6L Pentastar® V6 Engine With eTorque:

  • 20 mpg city / 26 mpg highway (2WD)
  • 19 mpg city / 24 mpg highway (4WD)

What is eTorque?

Another factor that makes the RAM 1500 gas mileage stand above the rest on Goldendale, WA roads is the vehicle’s eTorque system, which is used instead of an alternator. The eTorque system uses a 48-volt belt-driven motor powered by a stronger battery and delivers higher specs in terms of torque, payload capacity, and towing capability. 

RAM 1500 Efficiency Systems

Along with a range of engine and drivetrain options, there are many other striking components that contribute to the excellent 2021 RAM 1500 fuel economy. These include:


  • Transmission – A standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission adjusts shift points for maximum efficiency and performance.
  • Design – For 2021, the all-new RAM 1500 features an elevated hood and redesigned roof to lower its drag coefficient.
  • Active Air Dam – Standard in the RAM 1500 Rebel and non-air suspension models, this class-exclusive air dam lowers once the truck reaches 30 miles per hour.
