Ram officially unveils today the new 1500 EcoDiesel, a more frugal variant of the 2014 Ram 1500.
According to the press release, the new 1500 EcoDiesel gets a small displacement engine built by VM Motori.
However, we do know that it is very possible to be a 3.0-liter diesel unit capable to offer best-in-class fuel consumption. The new diesel powerplant will be linked to a TorqueFlite automatic transmission with eight gears.
Performance figures for the new American pickup truck will be released in the coming months.
“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,” proudly says the company.
However, these are just preliminary details, so we have to wait for the model’s official debut before we can tell you exactly if the new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is really that great.
