The current fifth-generation Ram was launched in 2018 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.

Many trims come by default with a 3.6-liter V6 engine (305 hp, 269 lb-ft) with the eTorque system, and they can be optioned up to a 5.7-liter V8 engine (395 hp, 410 lb-ft) with or without eTorque.

An eight-speed automatic transmission is paired with each engine.
