SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Many truck drivers are tired of having to sacrifice an environmentally-conscious drive for the strength of a pickup truck, and the team at Ram listened to those concerns by developing the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel V6. The fuel-saving truck, set to hit dealerships like Ingram Park CDJ at the end of 2013, will maintain its Ram truck strength while producing a cleaner, more efficient performance for hardworking drivers.
The 2014 Ram 1500 will be equipped with the groundbreaking 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine, making the truck the only light duty in the industry with clean diesel technology. For years drivers have had to rely on this truck without thinking about its impact on the environment, but now the automaker is reaching beyond driver expectations to create a smart truck with a conscience that doesn't lose sight of its strength.
The EcoDiesel engine isn't just about fuel efficiency. The powertrain still allows the vehicle to earn best-in-class 420 lb-ft of torque. The truck's under-the-hood muscle helps it produce up to 240 horsepower, and the iconic TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission ensures the 1500 remains smooth while it releases its undeniable power on the road.
Employing technology like the diesel oxidation catalyst, diesel particulate filter, and selective catalyst reduction, the 2014 Ram 1500 and its EcoDiesel V6 engine will be able to produce significantly fewer CO2 emissions. The truck will now be so efficient that it complies with every US state's emissions guidelines. Because the vehicle is compatible with B20 BioDiesel fuel, it will also create less air pollution and fewer greenhouse gases.
Where else can a driver find a truck that has best-in-class torque, the purest light duty engine available, and biofuel capability? Ingram Park CDJ looks forward to adding the impressive new Ram truck to its inventory at the end of the year.
