The 2014 Ram 1500 diesel sets a new benchmark for fuel economy according to officials.  The EPA has certified the 2014 Ram 1500 diesel at 28 miles per gallon on the highway.  That is the best rating ever achieved by a full size half ton pickup.  The combined city/highway rating was 23 mpg.
“To put the Ram 1500 Eco Diesel in context, it gets 6 mpg better fuel economy than the best F150 Eco Boost," said Ram Truck President and CEO Reid Bigland in a statement. Overall, the Ram 1500 Eco Diesel has outstanding pick-up truck capability with compact car-like fuel economy.”

The 2014 model year has seen the pickups fuel economy top its segment competitors for midsize pickups.  Bigland said he expects the vehicles 3.0 liter Eco Diesel engine to be a differentiator for Chrysler in the highly competitive U.S. pickup truck market.  Ordering for the Eco Diesel began February 7 according to Chrysler.

“We are immensely gratified by achieving these milestones,” says Bob Lee, Chrysler head of engine, powertrain and electrified propulsion systems engineering. “Not only do they confirm our position as an industry leader in powertrain development and truck design, they promise tremendous benefits for our customers.”
