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.

2014 Toyota Tundra 1794 - Driven

Sep 10 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

In the world that is dominated by the "Detroit Three," Toyota continually strives to create a pickup that is worthy of the masses, even if the sales are far from stellar. The current-generation truck is getting quite old — it debuted in 2007 — so Toyota has given it a full visual overhaul inside and out for 2014. TopSpeed went to the first press drive and came away quite impres ...

There’s hyperbole, and then there’s Chevrolet’s boast that its new-for-2015 Colorado mid-size pickup’s V-6 fuel economy is “segment-leading.” Now, we don’t intend to detract from the Colorado’s 26-mpg highway rating, but let’s take a look at the Colorado’s competitive set. There’s the Toyota Tacoma, which has been on sale in its current form since 2004, and the Nissan Frontier, which debuted the same year and grew up using dial-up internet and those AOL ...

Filed under: By the Numbers Americans love themselves some pickup trucks. It's a well-known fact, and it's demonstrated each and every month in the form of the top few nameplates as they appear on sales charts, starting with the Ford F-Series, as it has for, well, decades.

Ford Decides to Play Fair, Follow Industry Practice for Super Duty Payload Ratings

Sep 3 2014 3:33pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Another week, another move in America’s Ultimate Four-Wheeled Junk-Size Showdown, also known as the heavy-duty pickup wars. This time, Ford is in the news, stating that it is no longer going to use “minimum” curb weights to establish its payload and tow ratings, aligning with GM and Ram in using “base” curb weights to determine payload and towing capacities. By using minimum curb weights rather than base curb weights, manufacturers could—and, in the case of Ford and GM, did—remove c ...
