BC Drivers: Explore the V8 Engine Specs on the 2022 Ram 1500 Sport

May 24,2022

Boasting a larger, more robust engine, the new 2022 Ram 1500 Sport provides BC drivers with plenty of power. Currently available at O'Connor Chrysler in Chilliwack, you can take one of the beasts home with you today!   Growling under the hood of the new Ram 1500 is a 5.7-litre HEMI V8 motor. Churning out 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, it uses a deft 8-speed automatic transmission and a robust 4x4 system to dominate the trails. It also has the ability to pull up to 5,175 kg (11,410 lbs). Keep in mind that this is the standard powertrain for the Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited; but some of these trims may be offered with the 4x2 drivetrain, which will alter the towing capacity.   As for the average fuel economy, this model earns 13.4 L/100 km (21 mpg) in the city and 10.5 L/100 km (27 mpg) on the highway. These high numbers are due to the active front air dam and upper grille shutters that allow more oxygen to flow into the engine bay compartment. As a result, optimized performance ensues.   Would you like to give the 2022 Ram 1500 Sport a try in person?
