Ram HEMI® vs. Ford EcoBoost

During the research process, you may have noticed specific engine branding for each model. HEMI® technology is available on the Ram 1500 and other Ram vehicles, while EcoBoost technology can be found on Ford models. So, what's the difference?

HEMI® engines boast variable valve timing, which means its large valves improve airflow throughout the engine, allowing for better fuel efficiency. You can also opt in for the HEMI® engine with eTorque technology, which is a Mild Hybrid System. This system blends fuel-saving technologies with additional torque to deliver better fuel economy and towing power. EcoBoost technology works in a similar way; delivering better fuel economy without sacrificing performance. But as the specifications prove, HEMI® technology will deliver all-around better performance ratings.
