2019 RAM 1500 Earns Spot on Wards 10 Best Engines List


You may be used to us sharing news about our vehicles winning awards. Recently, we told you that the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler won the coveted 4x4/SUV of the Year Award from SEMA, for instance. What you’re probably not accustomed to is us telling you about award-winning truck parts. Well, that’s about to change.

As RAM dealers serving Santa Barbara, CA and surrounding communities, we’re thrilled to tell you that an engine that made its debut in the 2019 RAM 1500 recently won a prestigious honor. More specifically, the 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine with the eTorque mild-hybrid system earned a spot on Wards 10 Best Engines list for 2019. This marks the ninth consecutive year and 19th time overall that an engine produced by FCA US, LLC has made its way onto a Wards 10 Best Engines list.

“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 [on the 2019 RAM 1500] work almost imperceptibly. It’s one of the best around.”
