What is RAM 1500 EcoDiesel?

2020 Ram 1500

Have you wondered what, exactly, is RAM 1500 EcoDiesel? When Valparaiso drivers compared the 2020 RAM 1500 to the Ford F-150 they preferred the RAM EcoDiesel MPG numbers. You’ll find that the RAM EcoDiesel works far more efficiently than a traditional gasoline engine by combining the strengths of gas and diesel engines to create a combination that doesn’t sacrifice power. Connors Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is here with a RAM 1500 EcoDiesel review so you can find out everything you need to know about the RAM EcoDiesel.

RAM EcoDiesel Technology

In 2014, the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel option became available, bringing with it improved efficiency and performance each year as engineers have fine-tuned the engine technology. That’s led to the RAM EcoDiesel engine repeatedly being named one of the best engines in the industry. The RAM EcoDiesel is unique because it’s a hybrid that combines the power of gasoline and the efficiency of diesel. Part of its appeal comes from equipment like:

  • Active Air® Grille Shutters
  • Aluminum twin-cam heads
  • State-of-the-art clean diesel technology
  • Compacted graphite iron block
  • B20 biodiesel compatibility

RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Review: Engine Power

Diesel engines use high compression rather than spark plugs to ignite fuel, which causes full combustion of the fuel to occur almost instantly. That quick combustion translates to more energy, increased torque, and better RAM EcoDiesel towing capacity than you get from gasoline engines on Portage roads. RAM EcoDiesel specs for the 3.0L engine include:

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

RAM EcoDiesel MPG

Because of the way RAM EcoDiesel works, it inherently gets better gas mileage when you’re driving around Michigan City. RAM EcoDiesel MPG clocks in with better numbers than comparable gasoline engines:

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