We have recently had a few questions of when ordering would begin for the 2019 Ram 1500 equipped with the V6 Pentastar. We are happy to report that V6 ordering opened up last week, this coincides with what we said back in February about production of V6 equipped trucks beginning this August.
The Pentastar V6 itself has been refreshed for 2019 and comes standard with FCAs new eTorque system. Power numbers remain the same at 305HP and 269LB FT of torque. FCAs eTorque system is able to deliver an additional 90 ft lbs of launch torque on V6 equipped Rams along with being part of the new stop/start system. Ram also says that the eTorque system helps to smooth out transmission shifts by delivering torque to the crankshaft during shifting. 5thGenRams will be at the media launch event for eTorque equipped Rams so stay tuned for our thoughts in the near future. For now you can read the driving impressions for the 5.7 Hemi with eTorque system written by our forum member SpeedyV.
