Default Dodge Ram 3.6 e-torque reviews You got one? How does it tow for you?

I currently have a 2014 with the hemi. Love it but it seems most of the trucks on the lots are the 3.6 e-torque. Wondering how they perform. My boat weighs about 3000 #s. With the hemi it's like it's not even behind the truck.

It is probably all about what your expectations are, but for me personally, I'd only consider a 6 cylinder as a tow vehicle if there was some sort of turbo with it.

Power in the 3.6 is on par with V8s of 15 years ago, and your boat is light. I'm sure it would do ok as a tow vehicle, especially on shorter trips and flatter lands. Personally, I would do a search and find something with a Hemi. That would be a much better tow vehicle, especially if you ever upgrade to a heavier boat.

Id stick with the 5.7L hemi.
Just based on what I read about it.
How long does the electric motor assist you when going up a hill.
Looks like something getting up to speed when you stop.
I have a 2017 ram 1500 with a 5.7 hemi and it has all the power I need with what i think is good MPG for a truck.

Is resale important to you? If yes, then stick with the 5.7 hemi as it has a much better resale value. The reason the lot probably has mostly 3.6 e-torque trucks could very possibly be because those trucks are not selling.
