​​​​​​​The 2024 Ram 1500 Leads the Pack in Lee’s Summit 

The 2024 Ram is the most luxurious Ram 1500 ever based on standard and available features offered, and the McCarthy Jeep Ram Chrysler Dodge team is incredibly excited to present it to customers in Lee’s Summit and near Kansas City who are looking for the best 4x4 pickup truck for their needs.  

It doesn’t matter if you’re into towing, off-roading, overlanding, hauling, commuting, or any of the many other possible uses of the amazingly capable Ram pickup truck – the 2024 Ram 1500 is the best truck on the market for anyone considering a half-ton pickup truck near Lee’s Summit.  

The McCarthy Jeep Ram Chrysler Dodge team loves to shout about how spectacular the Ram is, but we know you might prefer a calmer approach while you’re on your phone or tablet. Join us as we break down just a portion of what makes the Ram the best truck to buy. 


Is the 2024 Ram 1500 Available with a V8 in Kansas City?  

Of course there’s a V8 (or two) available on the 2024 Ram 1500, but we’ll start with the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine before we move on to the two V8 engine choices.  

The venerated 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with eTorque is the standard engine in many Ram trims, and it’s a capable workhorse. It produces 305 maximum horsepower, 273 pound-feet of torque, and has 7,730 pounds of towing capacity when configured properly. It features eTorque mild hybrid technology which combines powerful and efficient technologies while providing additional torque. The V6 engine can also be configured to deliver best-in-class Hybrid payload of 2,300 lbs.  


What About the 2024 Ram 1500 V8 Hemi?  

The 5.7L Hemi V8 returns for 2024 with eTorque mild hybrid technology to offer a best-in-class maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds when properly configured.  

This respected V8 engine produces a maximum 395 horsepower and 410 max pound-feet of torque while offering the satisfying rumble only a V8 can produce. The Ram pickup truck with V8 engine is worth a test drive with the McCarthy team and consideration for your next new pickup truck near Lee’s Summit.  

There’s another V8 available on the 2024 Ram: the legendary 6.2L supercharged Hemi V8. This monster is only available in the Ram 1500 TRX and is the most powerful factory-installed engine in its class! Are you ready for a Ram pickup truck that harness a maximum output of 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque?  

Ram truck buyers who opt for this earth-shaker will run their quarter ton pickup truck from 0 – 60 MPH in as little as 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 118 MPH. The 2024 RAM 1500 TRX will thrill you while still offering 1,360 pounds of payload capacity and as much as 8,100 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped.  

This is the engine lineup to beat when you’re shopping for the best pickup truck for 4x4 shoppers near Kansas City and in Lee’s Summit.
