The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is available once again. Not only that, Ram returned its EcoDiesel option back. This engine will also power the upcoming Ram Rebel model. Basically, that means Ram is offering a 3.0-liter V6 in its new models such as Ram 1500 and Ram Rebel.
This engine will become available in the United States and some other markets. This model will deliver great fuel efficiency and good power. Whatsoever, this powerful V6 will deliver the best-in-class figures.
2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Design
New 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will be a quiet engine that will deliver pleasant ride. The passengers can finally relax and enjoy the comfort of the Ram 1500 cabin. An exclusive link-coil rear suspension will also be responsible for good ride quality. On top of that, the air-suspension system is in the offer too.
Ram 1500 and Ram Rebel will get superb driving manners. That includes great handling. EcoDiesel V6 is a small engine so the vehicle won’t have to deal with additional weight. Because of that, you can expect good steering ability from Ram’s newest trucks.
New Ram Offers More Power
The newest 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will deliver 480 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to that, towing capacity is rated at 12,560 pounds. That is less than 200 pounds less than the 5.7-liter V8 engine in Ram 1500. You must admit, these numbers are impressive for such a small engine in a half-ton truck.
On top of that, 480 lb-ft of torque is enough for the best-in-class figures. Current Ford F-150 delivers 440 lb-ft of twist and it tows 11,400 pounds. Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra are offering 460 lb-ft which is still less than the EcoDiesel. A 3.0-liter V6 will also produce 260 horsepower while Ford’s engine is producing 250 HP.
Ram Rebel EcoDiesel
Besides the Ram 1500, EcoDiesel will also power the upcoming Ram Rebel pickup truck. Most of the diesel engines in the United States had an issue with the regulations. Now, the 2020 Ram EcoDiesel V6 will finally arrive. This will be the first time the manufacturer offered EcoDiesel engine on the Ram Rebel.
It is an off-road capable pickup truck with great equipment. Of course, off-road models need good torque figures, but EcoDiesel will also deliver good fuel economy.
Diesel is generally proven in the fuel efficiency category. Once again, we expect for the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel to lead the segment in terms of fuel economy. The last generation of the powerful V6 offered 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
Ford F-150 offers 25 mpg combined. Now, Ram promises even better figures that will beat the competition with ease. However, we are still waiting for more specific details about the new powertrain.
2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Price and Release Date
According to a famous manufacturer, the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will offer a 14-percent increase in terms of torque. We can expect small price changes in the future.
Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will cost $33,000 while the base gasoline model starts at $28,000. On the other hand, new Rebel will start at around $50,000 or slightly less. Thanks to the new design and many new features, the upcoming Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will rival Ford F-150.
