Ram 1500 Hybrid Gains 2-3mpg around Town and Combined, 1mpg on the Highway
FCA has announced the official EPA fuel economy numbers for the 2019 Ram 1500 models with the eTorque mild hybrid system and both engines pick up 2 to 3 miles per gallon in the city and combined while also improving by 1 mile per gallon on the highway and making for a smooth drive.

The Ram eTorque system is a great hybrid package, as it improves fuel economy and makes for smoother upshifts, downshifts and initial acceleration (especially when towing) without any real downsides. Both the V6- and Hemi-powered Ram 1500 pickups with the hybrid system can be driven hard and they feel very much like the non-hybrid models, but when driven more gently, the hybrid system makes for a much smoother driver. The system provides electric power whenever torque output from the engine is at its lowest, including during shifts, so the “bump” that is generally felt when the truck shifts are smoothed out.
