2013 Ram 1500 price starts at $23,585, gets best-in-class fuel-efficiency

Chrysler Group is making some noise in the pickup segment by announced that the redesigned 2013 Ram 1500 is now the most fuel-efficient offering in the full-size segment.

When mated to a 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 engine and an 8-speed automatic (as standard), the 2013 Ram 1500 average 18/25 mpg (city/highway). That means 13 percent more torque and at least 20 percent better fuel economy when compared to the previous 3.7-liter V6 powertrain. Also, the standard V6 delivers best-in-class towing – 6,500 pounds.

The new 8-speed automatic is also available with the 5.7 liter HEMI V8, which produces 395-hp and 407 lb-ft of torque.

Besides the 8-speed automatic, the 2013 Ram 1500 also features other fuel-saving technologies including stop-start, thermal management system, pulse-width modulation and active aerodynamics, including grille shutters and air suspension.

“The new 2013 Ram 1500 is the most capable, best-looking half-ton pickup in the world and delivers best-in-class fuel efficiency, new technology and new features while upgrading the interior and exterior,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO of Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico — Chrysler Group LLC. “We changed every area of the truck – from a newly designed frame with air suspension, to a new eight-speed transmission to a new interior with the next-generation Uconnect system.”

Prices for the 2013 Ram 1500 start at $23,585, including $995 destination charge.
