The company does say that the engine is expected to deliver best in class fuel efficiency, best in class torque, and impressive capabilities. A engines are noted for producing an impressive amount of torque so trucks equipped with the engine are likely to be towing beasts.

Typically, in the United States diesel engines are limited to heavy duty pickups and until the 2014 Ram 1500 debuts, if you want a diesel engine in one of the companies trucks, you'll have to opt for the Ram 2500 or 3500.
