Hi all, just bought my first RAM. It is a 2020 Ram 1500 Laramie. I was trying to figure out if I had a quad or crew cab by decoding my VIN. It is a quad cab :) However, it says I have the 3.6L V6, under the hood is a 5.7L HEMI V8, hood says same. Any thoughts on why the difference? Is there a way to have this corrected?

If you're looking at the build sheet, make sure and look at optional equipment on the last page(s) too. Many times, it will list things on the first page(s) that are overridden by options on the last page(s). Same can be said for the window sticker (but obviously that is not multiple pages).

Curious, where are you seeing the 3.6L on your vin? Is this the dealership paper work?

if You are using an online “VIN decoder” it may be inaccurate. Sign up on the Ram “owners site“ and you will get the actual Build sheets from ram (its free) and look up the window sticker if available, you can get that from the Owners site too. https://www.mopar.com/ramtrucks/en-us.html

You definitely need to give us more info.

Did you just use the VIN decoder?

Did you just use the window sticker generator?

Did you use the build sheet generator?

If you do not mind...post your VIN or at least the information site you used.

+1. You could even just post your build sheet or whatever you are looking at, if you don't feel comfortable posting your VIN.

The first thing I would recommend is that you check the actual VIN on the vehicle and compare it to your paperwork and registration.

Based on the information you've already supplied, your VIN should be: 1C6xRFDTxxxxxxxxx.
