THE ENGINE SWITCHES FROM EIGHT TO FOUR CYLINDERS SO SEAMLESSLY. YOU'LL ONLY NOTICE IT AT THE GAS PUMP.
To create a totally new truck, our engineers didn't just push the envelope. They pulled it, stretched it, tore it apart, started over, and then pushed that new envelope even harder. They didn't stop until they created the all-new Dodge Ram Crew 1 500. A revolutionary truck that's right for the job. And right for the times.
A NEW SMARTER HEMI® ENGINE.
File this under the category of "Isn't technology wonderful?" The 2009 Ram's new 5.7L HEMI V8 utilizes our MDS fuel-saving(1 technology. This system determines when all eight cylinders aren't needed to power the truck, and then seamlessly and imperceptibly shuts off four of them to save gas.(1) Of course, when you do need that legendary HEMI V8 power, it instantly shifts back to eight cylinders to deliver more horsepower and more torque than ever before.
