2016 Ram 1500The 2016 Ram 1500 stands alone by offering drivers an optional diesel engine, and that comes with outstanding benefits. Indian Head and Melville drivers will be thrilled with this diesel powertrain, whether they’re focused on fuel economy, pure power, or unstoppable capability.


The 2016 Ram Diesel draws its power from a state-of-the-art 3.0L EcoDiesel V6. This is the only light truck in the country to offer a diesel option, let alone one that has landed on Ward’s “10 Best Engines” list two years in a row. With one of these powerhouses fitted, Indian Head and Melville drivers will be capable of harnessing up to a colossal 240 hp and a class-leading 420 lb-ft of low-end torque.


Diesel engines aren’t just ideal for hauling heavy loads. They also convert more of their fuel into power than gasoline alternatives, resulting in a noticeable boost in efficiency. That’s more than evident with the 2016 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel; it achieves up to 11.3 L/100 km in the city and 8.0 L/100 km on the highway, making it Canada’s most efficient full-size pickup ever.

If reduced fuel expenses aren’t enough to tempt you, the EcoDiesel also offers high competitive recommended oil change intervals of up to 16,000 km to lower your total operating costs and reduce maintenance demands.


The 2016 Ram 1500 has been named Four Wheeler magazine’s “2016 Pickup Truck of the Year,” and that has plenty to do with its diesel-powered capability. Here’s what you’ll be able to tow and carry with an EcoDiesel purring beneath the hood:

  • Towing: Haul up to a staggering 10,640 pounds (4,826 kg).
  • Carry: The 2016 Ram 1500 boasts a maximum payload of 1,890 pounds. (857 kg).

Rest assured, the power of the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine translates to tremendous real-world capability.
