The 2014 Ram 1500 pickup truck will have a 3-liter V-6 EcoDiesel that the company says will produce low emissions. The engine will be paired with an 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission.
“Truck owners have been emphatically asking for it, and Ram will be the only manufacturer to offer a diesel powertrain in the half-ton segment with the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel,” said Fred Diaz, president/ CEO for Ram Truck. “The Ram 1500 delivers on the demands of truckers by providing best-in-class torque, fuel economy and range.”
Ram's newest turbo diesel engine is manufactured by VM Motori, a Chrysler Group diesel engine supplier since 1992.
