For 2012, Ram gave its 1500 series pickup a new six-speed automatic transmission. A slight bump in fuel economy was a side effect.

The standard engine for the 2012 Ram 1500 ST regular and quad cabs is a 3.7-liter V6. A 215 hp power plant that produced 235 pound-feet of torque from a four-speed automatic transmission (standard).
