One of the things we enjoy the most about being a RAM dealer serving Orlando, FL and nearby areas is hearing the news when one of our vehicles wins an award. Of course, we enjoy it just as much when one of the components in the automobiles we sell is recognized for being outstanding.
We’re proud to tell you that one of the engines that the 2019 RAM 1500 is equipped with made it onto Wards 10 Best Engines list for 2019. More specifically, the 3.6-liter Pentastart V6 engine with eTorque made Wards’ prestigious list, which identifies the best engines in a model year.
“The Pentastar V-6 engine with eTorque shows how electrifying components of conventional engines can create magic under the hood,” said Drew Winter, senior content director at WardsAuto. “The all-new 48-volt mild-hybrid eTorque system provides a dollop of electrical propulsion during launch and while shifting gears, creating seamless, buttery smooth power to the wheels and improved fuel economy.
“Our judges recorded 21 to 22 mpg, outstanding for a full-size, four-wheel drive pickup,” Winter added. “The power of the eTorque system also makes the…fuel-saving stop-start system [in the all-new RAM 1500] work almost imperceptibly. It’s one of the best around.”
While we’re thrilled an engine from the 2019 RAM 1500 lineup made it onto such a highly regarded list, this isn’t the first time an engine produced by FCA US, LLC earned a coveted spot on a Wards Best Engines list. In fact, this is the ninth consecutive year and the nineteenth time overall that an engine made by FCA US, LLC was included in a Wards Best Engines list.
