The 2024 Ram 1500 (DT) is poised to maintain its leading position in the fiercely competitive world of pickup trucks as it enters its final year in its current configuration. Produced in Michigan, this iconic pickup is renowned for its cutting-edge technology, striking aesthetics, and unparalleled comfort.
In the upcoming model year, changes are kept minimal, which will be a welcome blessing for fans of the current Ram 1500. This marks the last opportunity for enthusiasts to own a V8-powered Ram 1500, as the beloved 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 is making way for a new pair of 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged Hurricane6 inline-six-cylinder engines.
Beneath the Ram 1500’s hood is an array of powertrain options that cater to diverse driving needs. The Pentastar V6 and HEMI® V8 engines are equipped with the eTorque 48-volt mild hybrid system, providing robust power and enhanced fuel efficiency. The Ram 1500 TRX features the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® HELLCAT V8 engine, boasting a staggering 702 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful mass-produced pickup in its class. This will be the final year for the HELLCAT engine in the TRX.
