New Ram 1500 With Diesel Motor
Earlier this month, the RAM truck brand announced a new version of the new Ram truck in Tacoma. Now, the extremely popular Ram 1500 will be available with a full diesel powertrain. This powertrain will consist of a 3.0-liter diesel V6 paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Horsepower and torque ratings have not yet been released.
“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,” Fred Diaz, chief executive of Ram Truck Brand, told media in a statement.
This diesel-powered Ram 1500 will go on sale sometime this summer for next year’s model year. Not only do diesel engines burn cleaner and are more fuel-efficient, but they offer more power for the same amount of engine size. Expect over 400 lb ft of torque.
