What Can You Expect from the Engines of a Ram 1500?

The transmission of a vehicle is where torque gains importance. The torque is the amount of power applied by the crankshaft to the transmission drive. Whether the transmission is manual or automatic, the torque delivered to the transmission gears determines the power delivered to the wheels.

All 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 models come with a stock automatic transmission. The TorqueFlight 8 Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission is geared to provide greater acceleration in low gears and a smooth ride in the top gears. The shift (called the E-shift in Ram trims) provides smooth gear switching without the hiccup so often found in other truck models. Dodge employs a thermal management system in its automatic transmission to combat the overheating issue that used to plague transmissions when towing.

At Bear Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we service and maintain your transmission during every oil change.
