2013 Ram 1500 to Sport an Eight-Speed Transmission
The 2013 Ram 1500 has been unveiled to reveal some impressive updates. The main improvements are geared towards improving the half-ton pickup truck’s performance and not its appearance.
First of all, each of the engines that the truck offers will come with a brand-new, eight-speed transmission, two more gears than just about any other vehicle out there. Those who know work vehicles can appreciate that the extra gears should work out to more power, faster acceleration, easier towing and an improved fuel economy.
Moreover, the new base Ram 1500 will come with a new V6 engine. Some may consider this a step back in engines, but the V6 of the present day has the ability to perform well while not busting the gas budget. Actually, although the 3.6-liter engine is 20% more fuel efficient, it can produce 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. For the latest Ram 1500 lease offers, go here.
