Ram killing popular Eco-Diesel ahead of EV truck launch

September 16, 2022

If you’ve had your eye on a new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel for a while, now might be the time to make plans to buy one. That’s because the EcoDiesel V6 will leave the Ram 1500 menu in January 2023, after almost 10 years of production, and after a moderate dose of controversy. The turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 arrived on the scene in 2014, offering class-leading range and fuel economy with a rating of up to 28 mpg on the highway, permitting it to travel over 1000 miles between fill ups. The engine also offered gobs of torque with 480 lb-ft on tap, as well as a towing capability of up to 12,560 pounds, making it a popular choice for long-distance hauling. The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel 4×2 later notched that fuel economy up to 32 mpg highway for RWD models and 29 mpg highway for 4×4 versions. Read original article here.
