RAM EcoDiesel Specs and MPG

The RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is a diesel powertrain designed to do more with less in Belleville, proven by the impressive RAM EcoDiesel specs:

  • Engine: Turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 24-valve diesel 3.0L V-6 engine
  • Transmission: 8-speed automatic
  • Output: 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque
  • Fuel Efficiency: 21 MPG city / 29 MPG highway

You’ll notice how the RAM EcoDiesel mpg specs are much higher than the competition, making it a smart pickup truck for Smithton drivers who like to save money. But while this truck may go easy on the planet, it doesn’t scrimp on performance, managing to muscle up serious power where you need it most.

RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Reviews

At Auffenberg CDJR, we’re big fans about what the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel can do, but we’re not alone. Check out these professional critics are saying about this hard-working pickup:

  • Car and Driver: “This is clearly the best Ram EcoDiesel ever, and overall, this new wave of diesel-powered half-tons are a compelling option for full-size pickup buyers.”
  • Kelley Blue Book: “Towing with the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is a breeze. We took out a 5,100-pound trailer behind a Laramie Longhorn, and power delivery and transmission shift points were spot on. Visibility was very good, and we were happy with the size of the side mirrors – which isn’t something to be taken for granted. The rest of the driving experience with the Ram EcoDiesel is just as good as with the entire Ram 1500 line: The ride is comfortable, the interior offers luxury-like materials and quality, and the class-leading tech is easy to use.”
