Ram 1500If you haven’t yet caught on to the newest addition to the Ram family and the biggest change to the diesel engine game yet — listen up, because you won’t want to miss this. The new EcoDiesel engine displayed on the Ram 1500 has been causing quite the fuss with its clean, fuel-efficient, and high-performing take on the traditional diesel engine. Stay with us to learn more about why this engine is gaining so much attention.

Diesel with a Twist

Many vehicles have recently been working to overhaul their engines to make them more eco-friendly and fuel-efficient. Some manufacturers have even begun to roll out vehicles that run without gas entirely, but the Ram 1500’s EcoDiesel engine completely wipes out the playing field. This new engine brings together raw power and fuel-efficiency together in a clean running diesel engine – something we haven’t seen before. We mean that too, the EcoDiesel engine is the only diesel engine available in its segment, which means Ram is doing something truly groundbreaking with this one.

The EcoDiesel engine is focused on providing a clean running, yet powerful driving experience that’s good for the environment and fun for the driver. To make this possible the engine consists of a lot of impressive aspects like twin-cam heads, clean diesel technology, B20 biodiesel capability, and Active Air Grille Shutters. With the help of all of these amazing eco-friendly additions the EcoDiesel engine is able to greatly reduce the amount of CO2 emissions produced.

The best part about this clean running engine is that it doesn’t sacrifice any of its amazing power that we’ve all come to know and love from our Ram trucks. The 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine is able to provide drivers with a whopping 240 hp, 420 lb-ft of torque, 3,592 kilograms of towing power, and as 680 kilograms of payload carrying capabilities. Furthermore, on top of all of this great power, the EcoDiesel engine still manages to stay true to its promise of providing impressive fuel efficiency. With the ability to reach up to 8.1L/100 km on the highway we’d say that this promise was surely delivered on.
