While the fourth generation Ram 1500 pickup, formerly referred to as the Dodge Ram 1500, has been in production since 2008 it wasn’t until the 2013 model year that the Ram received the increasingly popular corporate engine known as the 3.6L Pentastar V6. The 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine has found its way into several Dodge, Chrysler, Ram, and Fiat models as well as the Volkswagen Routan minivan. Horsepower ratings vary from model to model, however the Dodge Ram 1500 has received the most highly tuned version rated at 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque.
The technologies incorporated into the 3.6L Pentastar V6, such as dual overhead camshafts with dual variable valve timing, and all aluminum construction help this V6 engine produce more horsepower than the larger V8 engines of just a few years ago. Combine the power and technology of the 3.6L Pentastar V6 with an 8-speed Torqueflite8 automatic transmission and the 2013-2014 Ram 1500 3.6L boasts best in class EPA estimated fuel efficiency.
Ram 1500 engineers are required to work within a strict set of parameters, which is why aftermarket companies like K&N air filters are able to step in to upgrade horsepower and performance for some of the most advanced vehicles on the road. By replacing the restrictive factory air filter box and disposable air filter with a K&N air intake system your engine is able to breathe easier which frees up more horsepower and torque. Most K&N air intake systems can be easily installed in about 90 minutes with basic hand tools and can provide one of the best horsepower bangs for the buck.
The mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube of the 2013-2014 Dodge Ram 1500 3.6L air intake system features a smooth inner surface and is designed to straighten airflow and reduce turbulence. The silver powder coated aluminum air intake tube combined with the superior airflow and superior performance of an oversized K&N air filter considerably reduces air intake tract restriction. Additionally, the K&N 2013-2014 Dodge Ram 1500 3.6L air intake system incorporates a vehicle specific heat shield and air intake scoop. The black powder coated heat shield serves to deflect engine eat from entering the air filter while the incorporated air intake scoop directs cooler outside air from the 2013-2014 Ram 1500’s stock air inlet.
K&N air intake systems are designed to provide a guaranteed increase in horsepower than you can actually feel. All the features of the 2013-2014 Dodge Ram 1500 3.6L air intake system have been dyno proven to improve horsepower, which will also increase the rate of acceleration. K&N 2013-2014 Ram 1500 3.6L air intake system 77-1564KS was installed on an otherwise stock 2014 Ram 1500 3.6L pickup truck and dyno tested to reveal increased horsepower and torque numbers across the entire RPM range. At its peak output K&N 77-1564KS produced an estimated additional 11.98 more horsepower and 14.87 more lb-ft of torque. That increase in horsepower can be extremely useful when towing, going uphill, or even merging onto a highway.
