Chrysler will offer diesel version of light-duty Ram pickup
By: Restyling News
Monday, February 18, 2013
Chrysler Groupís Ram brand announced Feb. 14 that it will be first to offer a small-displacement diesel for its half-ton line of trucks.
Featuring a new 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine and an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, the automaker said the 2014 Ram 1500 will deliver best-in-class fuel efficiency and torque. If Chrysler delivers and the price is right, the diesel truck could propel pickup sales, which will stimulate demand for aftermarket accessories.
The 3.0-liter, V-6 turbo-diesel from Italian engine maker VM Motori produces 60% less emissions than those produced by diesel powertrains 25 years ago, Ramís maker notes.
The same eight-speed transmission and turbo-diesel engine that will power the 2014 half-ton pickup is identical to one offered in the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee that achieves highway fuel economy above 30 mpg, as reported by Larry Vellequette of Automotive News.
Although diesel engines are only available in half-ton pickup variants, they typically achieve higher fuel economy with better torque than gas-powered engines. The 2014 Ram 1500 will be Chryslerís first light-duty pickup offering since the early 1980s.
Pricing has not yet been announced, but the diesel pickup is scheduled to enter production in July.
