How Does the RAM 1500's eTorque feature work?

eTorque uses hybrid technology to increase the performance and fuel efficiency of the 2019 Ram 1500. The system is available in both the 3.6L V6 and the 5.7L V8 engines. It has a drive-belt motor generator attached to a 48V battery pack. Here's a couple features that the eTorque hybrid system brings to the table:

Short-Term Torque Assist - This feature gives a brief burst of extra torque.

Regenerative Braking - Instead of losing energy when you brake like most normal vehicles, the eTorque system will restore that lost power as electricity.

Engine Start / Stop - This is another feature designed to increase the fuel efficiency of the truck. The 2019 Ram 1500 can turn off when stopped for a brief period of time to save gas like in traffic or at a redlight. It will quickly and automatically restart when you start to release the brake.
