Well I still keep looking for the epa numbers but they still are not out. They have the ratings for the v8 non etorque and it's disappointingly exactly the same as the outgoing Ram despite lower weight and better aerodynamics. The rumor on the streets is the v6 really gets an improvement from the system, maybe over 20mpg city. With parking lots full of built trucks you would think they know, I just wonder why it hasn't been released.

"eTorque adds torque to the crankshaft during gear changes to reduce noise and vibrations "

That might help the automatic transmissions last longer.
