Since Ram moved from a truck lineup from Dodge to its own brand, it has quickly become one of the fastest growing truck brands in the country. The Ram 1500 has been a favorite amongst truck buyers of the last several years. One variation of the Ram 1500 pickup features a fuel efficient EcoDiesel engine. The EcoDiesel allows drivers to select a diesel grade of gasoline, should they desire. EcoDiesel is cleaner than traditional gasoline, allowing the driver to reduce the amount of emissions their vehicle produces, all while improving the mileage they receive per gallon. Clean diesel has been going strong throughout Europe, but it had not made a big splash inside of the United States for several years. Recently though, more and more diesel based vehicles have started to pop up in the US, with the Ram EcoDiesel serving as one of the most impressive options. In fact, it has become so impressive that it now makes up 20 percent of all Ram 1500 production.

When people purchase a pickup truck, they do so for the power and towing capability. However, there are other features of a truck that can make it an attractive option, especially over the competition. This is where the EcoDiesel shines as it offers a best in class 28 miles per gallon on the highway. No other pickup truck on the planet is able to offer this kind of fuel economy. On top of it all, the Ram 1500 with EcoDiesel powertrain is able to tow up to 9,200 pounds, which is perfect for the consumer who is looking for a light-duty truck capable of power and performance, on top of great fuel economy.

The vehicle offers a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, in addition to a thermal management system, pulse-width modulation, active aerodynamics and a grille shutter and air suspension. The eight-speed transmission reduce the drag that takes place when an automatic shifts between gears. The smoother the shift between the gears the less fuel is spent during this move. Since the inception of automatic transmission, manuals traditionally performed better, as a human could shift between gears better than the automatic transmission.

The grille shutters and air suspension can alter the amount of wind that passes through the grille. This allows the vehicle to become more aerodynamic, especially on the highway, which improves fuel economy. Everything about the Ram 1500 with EcoDiesel powertrain is about improving fuel efficiency while offering the very best performance as well.

Not only has the Ram 1500 won the Motor Trend Truck of the Year away in both 2013 and 2014, it offers the very best power train warranty on the market, giving a total of five years/100,000 miles. Beyond this, the 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel engine powers the Ram truck to 240 horsepower and 420 lb. - ft. of torque. It is this impressive torque that allows the truck to tow up to 9,200 pounds.

The EcoDiesel has proven so popular than when Ram announced the 1500 EcoDiesel, Ram received over 8,000 requests within the first three days. This filled the allocation for the power train instantly. Due to this extreme interest in the engine, Chrysler has designed Ram should improve and increase production of the popular EcoDiesel truck.
