Ram has announced that it will offer a new 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel model equipped with the same 3.0-liter diesel V-6 engine that is optional for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The move makes the 2014 Ram the only half-ton diesel pickup and, combined with a standard 8-speed automatic transmission, improves upon the current Ram 1500 V-6 model's 25 mpg highway fuel-economy rating. Ram also claims the new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will supply best-in-class torque.

"Truck owners have been emphatically asking for it, and Ram will be the only manufacturer to offer a diesel powertrain in the half-ton segment with the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel," said Fred Diaz, president and CEO--Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Chrysler Group LLC. "The Ram 1500 with 3.0-liter V-6 turbo EcoDiesel and TorqueFlite 8-speed transmission deliver on the demands of truckers by providing best-in-class torque, fuel economy and range."
