The 2024 Ram 1500 is a no-compromise full-size pickup truck with plenty of power, technology, convenience features, and efficiency. It boasts an impressive towing capacity of 12,750 pounds and a maximum payload of 2,300. Ram fits the 1500 with a mild hybrid system, helping improve fuel efficiency in the standard V6 and optional V8 powertrains. For the 2024 model year, the Ram 1500 has had a few tweaks, including additional standard equipment, enhanced off-road features, and unique color options for the massive Ram 1500 TRX.

Ram offers eight trim options: Tradesman, Tradesman HFE, Big Horn, Laramie, Rebel, Limited Longhorn, Limited, and TRX. Ram has three engine options to power these trucks: a 3.6-liter V6, a 5.7-liter V8, and a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8. The V6 is the base powertrain, producing 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Since this powertrain utilizes the eTorque 48-volt mild hybrid system, it manages an impressive fuel economy rating of 20 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 23 mpg combined. Ram also pairs the 5.7-liter V8 with the hybrid system, enabling it to manage an EPA fuel economy rating of 18 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined.

In addition to its excellent fuel economy ratings, the Ram 1500 has a competitive starting price of $39,420. For the 2025 model year, Ram plans to revamp the engine lineup, fitting the Ram 1500 with more powerful and efficient six-cylinder engines. Ram also promises the 1500 Ramcharger and the 1500 REV in 2025, which are more efficient versions of the 1500.
