RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Review

So, what makes the RAM EcoDiesel such a force on the Tinley Park roads? Diesel engines utilize high compression, while standard gas-powered engines use simple spark plugs. The high compression ratio of the diesel engine allows fuel combustion to occur almost instantaneously, which means more output without energy loss. More output translates to big numbers, including the impressive RAM EcoDiesel towing capacity and torque. Check out the 3.0L RAM EcoDiesel specs:

  • 240 horsepower
  • 420 lb-ft of torque
  • 9,290-lb max towing capacity

RAM EcoDiesel MPG

Not only do you get the benefits of high-octane power out of the EcoDiesel lineup, but you’ll also appreciate the savings at the gas pump! The RAM EcoDiesel MPG is higher than most gas-powered engines, due to a high-torque performance. Higher torque creates more power per gallon on average, which means fewer fill-ups. Take a look at the recent best-in-class fuel economy estimates:

  • RAM EcoDiesel 4×2 MPG – 29 mpg highway, 21 mpg city
  • RAM EcoDiesel 4×4 MPG – 27 mpg highway, 21 mpg city
