The 2020 1500 EcoDiesel is now available from Ram. The company boasts the EcoDiesel will be the most powerful truck in the segment with 480 lb-ft of torque and a 12,560-pound towing capacity. The EcoDiesel will be available on all 1500 models, including a first-time offering on the popular Ram Rebel.
The third generation of Ram’s turbocharged 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6 features increased torque and horsepower. The noise level and vibration has been minimized. The EcoDiesel features a new water-cooled turbocharger and redesigned cylinder head intake ports, which increase performance and fuel economy.
“The new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is America’s most powerful half-ton diesel pickup, following up on Ram’s Heavy Duty torque leadership and achieving what no other manufacturer has, with up to 480 lb-ft of torque in a 3.0L engine,” said Head of Ram Brand Reid Bigland.
The Ram Rebel won the 2019 Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of the Year award. The Ram 1500 took home Truck Trend’s Pickup Truck of the Year award. For Ram to win both prestigious awards speaks volumes about the performance and capabilities of the truck.
The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2019. Pricing and fuel economy numbers are expected to be released later this year as well.
