2014 Ram 1500 Eco Diesel Gets Incredible Gas Mileage

The 2014 Ram 1500 pickup is not your typical diesel.  This powerful yet efficient truck has the Eco Diesel engine that gets 28-mpg-plus highway gas mileage.
Getting close to an EPA-rated 20 mpg combined for a light-duty truck is considered pretty good.  That is whyat is so impressive about this truck’s fuel economy.

 It is also much quieter than that of yesteryear.  Gone is the engine noise of your typical diesel.  It has huge torque reserves yet a lighter front end.  This makes the truck smooth while also being quiet and nimble.
The Eco Diesel is the key.  It has 420 pound-feet of torque, and with an eight speed automatic transmission, it gives you 9200 pounds of towing capacity.  

The Eco Diesel proved its worth in three days of hard testing, where its average fuel economy was more than double that of some of the other competitors.  The engines robust 420 lb-ft of torque proved well towing a trailer and hauling a payload without incident. This trucks abundant midrange torque made for relaxed high-speed cruising loaded and unloaded, and highway-speed passing was confident and done with ease.

With this edition of the Ram 1500 you get luxury and performance.  That’s a combination that is hard to beat.  Come test drive yours today at Monroeville Dodge at 3633 William Penn Highway in Monroeville, PA or give us a call at 412-856-1700 today!
