2014 Ram 1500 Will Offer a 3.0-Liter Turbo Diesel Engine

Horsepower and torque numbers are being withheld for now

If you're a fan of trucks, Ram has announced that and Q3 of 2013 it will become the only brand offer a small displacement diesel in its halftime line of pickup trucks. The truck will be branded as a 2014 Ram 1500 and the available engine is a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel. The engine will be combined with an eight-speed TorqueFlite transmission.

Ram isn't offering up a lot of details for the 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine. 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.

The turbodiesel engine will be manufactured by VM Motori, which is a company that has supplied the Chrysler Group with a engines since 1992. 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.

Fiat Strada–Based Mini-Ute Could Eventually Come to U.S. with ChangesAs automotive journalists, we usually assume the term “North America” or “North American” means “U.S.,” and certainly since NAFTA came into full force over the last two decades, there’s a lot more product commonality between Canada, Mexico and the U.S. However, there are some unique products in each of the markets that aren’t necessarily shared. One interesting little morsel we found was the Ram 700 model sol ...

Oct 17 2014 7:10pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

With Ford touting aluminum and General Motors and Ram sticking with steel, which do you trust?Ford has been making waves with the 2015 F-150 ever since it was revealed earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show, with Ford claiming that it would weigh up to 700 pounds less than the 2014 F-150, due in part to its aluminum body construction. That weight loss was motivated primarily by tightening fuel economy standards in the U.S. a Photo Gallery: Which Do You Trust: ...

Oct 13 2014 9:03am CDT | Source: Truck Trend

We’re going to take a look at two of the Ram 1500’s engine options and shed a little more light on the relative merits and trade-offs of each.In the earlier days of fullsize trucks, the decision of which engine option to get was a pretty easy one.

Oct 9 2014 1:10pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Reliance on Truck and SUV Sales Brings Average DownDespite having the most fuel-efficient pickup and midsize premium SUV in the Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel, Chrysler as a whole came in dead last in the latest EPA report surveying manufacturer-adjusted fuel economy. Chrysler-Fiat’s Final 2013 economy average came in at 20.9 mpg. Although that represents a 0.8 mpg improvement from 2012, it puts it 1.1 mpg below next-worst Gener ...

Oct 9 2014 12:05pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

As much as there is a horsepower war going on among today’s sports and super car makers, truck makers are battling just as hard to boast who can tow the most. To help out, we’ve pulled together the top 10 new trucks for towing. A couple of caveats, though. The noted maximum towing capacities for some vehicles require a fifth-wheel or gooseneck setup. And the competitive nature of the segment might mean that there could be a new truck-towing king crowned by the time you have read this ar ...

Ford F-150 - First Drive

Oct 8 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

Ford may be a massive automaker with products stretching the globe, but much of its success rides in the bed of the venerable F-150 pickup. The F-Series as a whole (F-150, F-250, F-350, and F-450) ranks as the best-selling vehicle in the U.S., pulling in nearly 500,000 sales in 2013. Revamping your top product is risky business, so Ford spent the better part of five years developing what was to become the all-new 2015 F-150.Before the truck hits showrooms later this year, we flew ...
