You’ve asked for years for a diesel engine in a light-duty truck. We listened, and now the wait is nearly over. The 2014 Ram 1500 features an available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine—for consumers who want to drive an efficient, environmentally friendly truck without sacrificing capability or performance.
The new EcoDiesel V6 engine is truly one of the most advanced diesel engines in the marketplace. Combined with the legendary TorqueFlite® 8 Eight-Speed Transmission, the ultimate combination of power and innovation will be available later this year.
Highlights of the 2014 EcoDiesel Engine Include:
- Best-in-Class Torque: The EcoDiesel engine delivers best-in-class 420 lb-ft of torque. Paired with an impressive 240 horsepower, this engine has serious muscle.
- Low CO2 Emissions: Equipped with a diesel oxidation catalyst, diesel particulate filter and selective catalyst reduction, the EcoDiesel V6 engine will be emissions-compliant in all 50 states.
- B20 BioDiesel Capable: Biofuel produces less air pollutants and less greenhouse gas emissions, making the EcoDiesel V6 engine the cleanest light-duty engine available.
The 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine emissions are 60 percent lower than those produced by diesel powertrains 25 years ago, and the engine—manufactured by VM Motori, a Chrysler Group diesel engine supplier since 1992—is among the most advanced diesels on the market today.
This groundbreaking engine will be available late 2013 for Tradesman®, Outdoorsman®, Big Horn®, Laramie® and Laramie Longhorn® models. Sign up for updates and be the first to receive breaking news about the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel V6 engine.
