  • Outstanding Fuel Economy - The EcoDiesel engine combined with the segment-exclusive TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission delivers the best 4x2 and 4x4 fuel economy of any full-size pickup in its class.
  • V8-Like Towing - An EcoDiesel-powered 2014 Ram 1500 can tow up to 4173 kg (9200 lb) and boasts a payload capacity of up to 717 kg (1580 lb).
  • V8-Like Torque - An unsurpassed 420 lb-ft of V6 torque at a low 2,000 rpm ensures maximum towing power at all times.
  • Long-Lasting Durability - High-strength Compact Graphite Iron cylinder block and bedplate, forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods, durable aluminum alloy pistons and heat-treated aluminum cylinder heads ensure long-lasting durability.
  • Turbo Power - An electronically controlled and water-cooled Variable Geometry Turbocharger provides critical turbine power at low engine speeds helping to ensure optimal power and performance at all times.

The Diesel Advantage

There's a simple reason why the vast majority of large transport trucks on the road today are powered by diesel engines - diesel engines offer superior fuel efficiency and towing power over conventional gasoline engines.

  • More Kilometres per Dollar - According to Natural Resources Canada, the average price for both Diesel and Regular gasoline across Canada in 2013 was $1.28 per litre. Since Diesel engines are more fuel efficient than similar sized gasoline engines, EcoDiesel owners will get more kilometres for their dollar.
  • Short Payback Period - Compared to competitive premium engines offered by Ford and GM, an EcoDiesel pickup owner will be able to effectively payback the EcoDiesel powertrain option cost through estimated annual fuel savings in as little as 2.5 years of ownership.
  • Exceptional Low End Torque - A diesel typically develops its maximum horsepower and torque at a much lower engine RPM than a gasoline engine. This makes a significant difference in towing ability. Since the power band is wide and at a lower RPM, diesel engines have the ability to pull hard without working too hard. This again results in greater fuel efficiency.
  • Higher Residual Value - Because of their appeal, Diesel-powered pickups typically have a higher resale value over similarly equipped gasoline pickups. An example of the benefits of a 3.0L EcoDiesel versus conventional gasoline engine can be seen with the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee that is currently in market: Based on current residual values, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 3.0L EcoDiesel has up to $3,000 (14%) better residual value.
  • Biofuel Capability - The EcoDiesel is capable of running on environmentally friendly and renewable Biodiesel fuels up to a B-20 blend. Biofuel produces less air pollutants and less greenhouse gas emissions.
