Soon to be available at the Regina, SK dealership, the Ram EcoDiesel engine will be the first of its kind in the half-tron truck segment.
Crestview Chrysler in Regina, SK has reported that in the third quarter of 2013, the Ram 1500 will become available with an all-new 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel engine. Already the most fuel-efficient model in its class, the Ram 1500 will surpass its own record in the half-ton pickup segment with a new small-displacement clean diesel engine featuring low CO2 emissions along with inspired V6 performance. On the other end of the powertrain, the Ram 1500 Diesel will be powered by an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 2013 Ram 1500 already comes available with best-in-class fuel efficiency when equipped with its new Pentastar Variable Valve Timing (VVT) V6 engine, which gets up to 7.8L/100 km on the highway. When equipped with the new EcoDiesel engine the 2014 Ram will surpass its own top position with even greater fuel efficiency as well as giving drivers best-in-class torque, driving range, and commanding horsepower performance. The Ram will also continue to be offered with a 4.7L V8 flex-fuel engine and a 5.7L V8 engine that produces a commanding 395 hp and 407 lb-ft of torque.
While the EcoDiesel engine will provide industry leading fuel economy numbers, the new Ram 1500 will further minimize its impact on the environment through its ability to process clean diesel. This technology will lead to even lower CO2 emissions, making the upcoming Ram capable of emissions that are 60 percent lower than the diesel engines that were produced a quarter century ago.
In addition to this impressive new low carbon and fuel-efficient technology, the 2014 Ram 1500 will return with the best interior comfort and technology in the pickup segment. In terms of comfort and style, the Ram will be back in 2014 with standard features including a leather steering wheel with audio and cruise control, a center floor console with available automatic dual-zone temperature control, Bluetooth, and much more. In addition to these comforts, this model will come with a standard technology package that includes 12V power outlets, a 6 speaker stereo system, auxiliary audio input, a USB connection, and many more standard and optional features.
The 2014 Ram 1500 with its all-new best-in-class EcoDiesel engine is expected to arrive at Crestview Chrysler sometime around September of this year. Crestview Chrysler is located at 601 Albert Street in Regina and has a number of brand new 2013 Ram 1500 models in stock right now.
