RAM Holds Top 2 Spots for Truck Fuel Economy

2014 Ram 1500The 2014 RAM 1500 has earned a record-breaking 28 mpg rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), setting a new standard for all full-size, half-ton pickup on the market.

This incredible rating was made possible by the RAM’s all-new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel, the first and only advanced-technology turbo-diesel offered in the segment. Thanks to its Selective Catalytic Reduction, high-pressure cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation, and variable swirl intake ports, the EcoDiesel delivers class-leading fuel economy as well as more power than any other V6-powered full-size truck, with peak torque measured at 420 pound-feet.

This also marks the 2nd time RAM takes the top spot for efficiency in pickup rankings, as the 2014 model’s record replaced none other than the one set by the 2013 RAM 1500 last year.

“To put the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel in context, it gets 6 mpg better fuel economy than the best F150 Eco-Boost,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO of RAM Truck Brand. “Overall, the RAM 1500 Eco-Diesel has outstanding pick-up truck capability with compact-car-like fuel economy.”

Come find both the 2013 and 2014 RAM 1500 at Rochester Hills!
