2019 Ram 1500 HEMI eTorque MPG Numbers Looks Into The Question... ... g-numbers/
Our sister site and it’s forum members have done some digging and found some MPG numbers for the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 equipped with the 5.7-liter HEMI with eTorque systems. The forum members ended up finding the window stickers for a few of the HEMI eTorque trucks that have been produced at the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Sterling Heights, Michigan.

They found that a 2019 Ram 1500 Crew Cab 4×4 with the HEMI eTorque is rated at 17 MPG city, 22 MPG highway and 19 MPG combined. That makes the new HEMI eTorque models the most fuel efficient V8 pickup in it’s class. The HEMI eTorque model beats the non-eTorque model by 2 MPG city, 1 MPG highway and 2 MPG combined.

The system also provides up to 130 ft-lbs. of launch torque over the standard model from a dead stop.

The HEMI eTorque models are now being produced and should be in dealers soon.
2019 Crew Cab 4x4 with 5.7L HEMI eTorque is rated for 17 city / 22 hwy.
While my 2014 Crew Cab 4x2 with 5.7L HEMI is rated for 15 city / 22 hwy.

Not apples to applies, but 2 mpg better while also 4x4 is not too shabby.
I imagine highway mileage won't change much if it's a launch based system.

I'm more interested in hearing how the 0-60 and 1/4-mile times change? :D
