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.

Ram 1500 EcoDiesel - Driven

Aug 20 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

The Ram truck has been around since its nameplate was officially used on the 1981 Dodge pickup. Dodge trucks dating back to 1933 were known for their ram hood ornament, so the mascot went from decoration to the trucks’ name. Big news happened again in 2010 when the Fiat Chrysler Group moved the Ram lineup outside the Dodge umbrella, making the Ram its own brand. Now in its fourth generation, the Ram truck is breaking ground on uncharted territory. That uncharted ground includes inno ...

It’s the sacrifice so many of us make for the capability and power of a truck — the price of admission, so to speak, for the utility a half-ton affords. But, clearly, it doesn’t have to be so painful, as the 2014 Ram 1500 Laramie EcoDiesel we tested for the past month so loudly demonstrates. Starting with a full tank, and having just driven 900 kilometres, I sit here this day with roughly ...
