Ram truck gets car-like fuel economy

Ram has announced that the 2014 1500 EcoDiesel will get the sort of fuel economy on the highway typically reserved only for cars. The 2014 1500 EcoDiesel is rated for 28mpg on the highway. Power for the truck comes from the segments only V6 turbo diesel engine displacing 3.0L.

Despite the impressive fuel economy, the 1500 EcoDiesel should also have the power to tow just about anything with 420 lb-ft of torque. The truck has an EPA rating of 23mpg combined on city and highway driving.

The 4x4 version of the truck will get best in class 4x4 economy as well with 19mpg city, 27 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined. Ordering for the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will begin on February 7.

“The new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is truly in a class of it’s own with 28 MPG and the ability to tow 9200 pounds,” says Reid Bigland, President and CEO Ram Truck Brand. “To put the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel in context, it gets 6 mpg better fuel economy than the best F150 Eco-Boost. Overall, the Ram 1500 Eco-Diesel has outstanding pick-up truck capability with compact-car-like fuel economy.”

GMC Sierra Elevation Edition

Sep 22 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

GMC announced its reentry back into the sport truck game. However, its submission to the competition is decidedly drab. Now before you run for the pitchforks, let me explain. GMC has some history in the sport truck market, namely the 1991 Syclone and 1992 through 1993 Typhoon. Both the Sonoma-based Syclone and Jimmy-based Typhoon used a turbocharged and highly modified version of the 4.3-liter V-6, sported lowered suspensions, bigger brakes, and an all-wheel-drive setup. The Sycl ...

2015 Toyota Tundra Drops V-6 for All V-8 Lineup

Sep 15 2014 5:09pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Low Take Rate Spelled End for 4.0L V-6With the success of the 3.5L EcoBoost V-6 in the Ford F-150 and Ram selling plenty of both the 3.6L Pentastar and 3.0L EcoDiesel engines in the 1500 truck, you’d think downsizing is the name of the game for fullsize truck brands. Not for Toyota. Buyers have overwhelmingly chosen V-8 engines for the Tundra, prompting the company to drop the 4.0L V-6 altogether for 2015. Only about five percent of bu ...

2014 Toyota Tundra 1794 - Driven

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

The Tundra is an obscure model in the Toyota lineup. 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.

Demand for Trucks Strong as EverThe last two years have been some of the best ever for fullsize truck makers, with the Detroit Three leading the charge. Ford remains undefeated in overall sales volume with the F-Series. However, resurgent rival Ram has seen some of the most significant year-over-year sales gains, driven by rapid-fired product updates and innovative, class-first features like an eight-speed transmission and the 1/2-ton class’ first diesel in more than two decades. a Photo Gall ...

Chevrolet Releases Fuel-Economy Estimates for 2015 Colorado V-6, Of Course It’s Segment-Leading

Sep 4 2014 5:39pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

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 Online compact discs.
