June 1st, 2014 by

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Release DateWe have been getting questions about the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel for months now, and we are pleased to announce it is finally available on our lot. The first shipment arrived just a few weeks ago, and these trucks have been getting a lot of attention already. That is probably because the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is unlike any previous Ram truck, any other truck on our lot, or any other truck on the market right now. Read on to find out why this new build stands apart.

Revolutionary Powertrain

The 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is powered by a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 and driven by an eight-speed automatic transmission that is not available on any other truck in this segment. Thanks to the advanced engineering that has gone into this diesel engine, this truck can get 240 hp and a class-leading 420 lb-ft of torque while still delivering fuel economy ratings of as high as 10.2L/100 km in the city and 7.1L/100 km on the highway. This is the only light duty truck to feature a diesel engine, meaning you won’t find this balance of power and efficiency anywhere else.

Muscular Capabilities

Before you write off the EcoDiesel engine as a flash in the pan technology designed to appeal to environmentalists, get a load of its impressive capabilities. This truck has a maximum towing capacity of 10,450 pounds and a maximum payload up to 1,930 pounds. That means you will have no problem towing a piece of equipment, or loading up the bed with a full load of concrete.

4WD Freedom

Switching over to four-wheel drive takes nothing more than pressing a button. You then have the power you need to handle the roughest terrain, the steepest inclines, and the worst of the snow and ice. The 4-HI setting locks both drive shafts to give you enhanced traction and control, and the 4-LO setting delivers a 2.72:1 gear reduction ratio for maximum pulling power.
