2023 Ram 1500 Classic – Fuel Economy and Payload Capacity in Cranbrook

January 31,2023

The Ram 1500 family offers a range of fuel economy options thanks to its hybridized V-8 and V-6 engines, in addition to the diesel power-train option. According to the EPA's calculations, the Ram with the rear-wheel drive diesel engine achieves a 26 miles per gallon cumulative fuel economy rating. The gas V-6 and V-8 engines, on the other hand, get a maximum of 23 and 20 miles per gallon combined, respectively. On the real-world fuel-economy route that we drove at 75 miles per hour as part of our rigorous testing process, a 1500 Rebel equipped with the gas V-6 engine returned 24 miles per gallon. That is a 4 and 6 mpg improvement over a V-8 Laramie and V-Rebel, respectively, both of which did not have electrical assistance when tested. The Ram 1500 has the ability to carry a 2320-pound maximum payload and can tow up to 12,750 pounds. It has a maximum towing capability that is greater than any other vehicles - with the exception of the Ford F-150, which presently reaches 13,000 pounds. Crew-cab style rams, including the Rebel model, are classified in the same category as Rams with extended cab bodies. However, despite being more accommodating for passengers, the 1500 can still pull more than 11,500 pounds.
