Ram Trucks has confirmed that 2019 Ram 1500s equipped with the eTorque mild hybrid 5.7 Hemi V8 entered production last Monday. FCA says that we should expect the eTorque equipped Hemi trucks to be on dealer lots by the end of July with the eTorque V6 landing on lots in the third quarter of this year. That lines up with what 5thGenRams has been reporting with the V6 Pentastar equipped with the eTorque system beginning production in August. We expect the EPA to announce 2019 Ram 1500 eTorque MPG numbers soon, as even though consumer trucks just started being built there previously were some eTorque equipped trucks built which we are sure the EPA has got their hands on.
We have many forum members with eTorque equipped trucks on order and while some have now been built some are still scheduled. This is good news for people holding out for the eTorque as well as consumers with the eTorque on order. 5thGenRams hopes to get behind the wheel of an eTorque equipped truck as soon as they are available and will provide a full review.
