EcoDiesel Engine Revolutionizing RAM Trucks

If there's one thing gearheads love it's a great engine, and while it might seem small, particularly in the arena of powerful RAM trucks, the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine under the hood of the 2015 RAM 1500 is one of the most unique machines in the auto industry today.

What makes it so special is its ability to perform both like a larger engine and to sip diesel like a smaller one. As the most diminutive engine of any pickup truck in the country right now, it shouldn't come as too big a surprise that it only pushes out 240 hp. Despite that, however, the engine is capable of producing an impressive 420 lb-ft of torque, and it's that number that ultimately provides the pull to tow or haul massive amounts of cargo.

It's at this point, however, that we remind our readers that performance alone isn't what makes the EcoDiesel such a great engine; there's also the efficiency side of things, which will save drivers money at the gas pump.

Poor fuel economy always has been the biggest downfall of pickups, but now there's an engine that can make the most of a gallon of fuel without sacrificing much in terms of performance. In fact, RAM claims that the EcoDiesel can lug around about 90 percent of what the standard V8 engine can, however with such a big gap in efficiency between the two engines, those wanting a more environmentally friendly work vehicle should opt for a 2015 RAM 1500 truck equipped with the EcoDiesel engine.

Engine technology has come a long way, but this new diesel engine has been nothing short of revolutionary for RAM and Jeep® vehicles over the course of the last year. To see this mighty yet efficient engine in person, come stop by Windward Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM today!
