RAM EcoDiesel MPG and Specs

If you want to know exactly how much truck you’re getting in the RAM EcoDiesel, you’ll be happy to know that you’re going to get a monstrous drive whenever you step behind-the-wheel of this tough RAM truck. The RAM EcoDiesel specs under the hood offer this excellent performance:

  • 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

Since the Ram EcoDiesel has a diesel powertrain, you can expect much higher gas mileage than you would expect from a comparable gas-powered RAM 1500 truck. However, you’re not giving up power to get fuel efficiency, as evidenced by the impressive horsepower and torque stats.

RAM 1500 Reviews

The RAM 1500 EcoDiesel reviews evince a powerful and flexible light truck that can handle anything you throw at it. According to 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.”
