Currently available at O’Connor Chrysler in BC, you can get your hands on one of these light-duty trucks today!

Although the vehicle is offered with four different engines, the one that has the top haul capacity is the 5.7-litre HEMI V8. Standard on the Sport, Rebel, Laramie, Limited Longhorn, and Limited trim levels, it yields up to 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. Mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission, it will provide you with a smooth experience every time you get behind the wheel.

There are also two drivetrains to pick between - 4x2 and 4x4. The 4x2 system boasts the highest pulling rate capped at 5,783 kg (12,750 lbs). Meanwhile, the 4x4 version is able to handle an attachment weighing up to 5,175 kg (11,410 lbs).

This particular motor can also be coupled with the eTorque mild hybrid system, which adds 130 lb-ft of torque for improved acceleration at low speeds. This enhancement is typically found on models with the GT Package.
