Ram is preparing to deliver their new 3.0-Liter EcoDiesel V6 engine in the new 2020 Ram 1500 trucks. Ram officially approved this move and we’re excited to have this fuel-saving powertrain option. Several Ram 1500 trim levels are anticipated to provide an optional turbo-diesel, However, there has not been an announcement or evidence about whether it will be available for the impressive and off-road ready new generation Ram Rebel. We’re waiting for word on if there will even better a turbo-diesel, but let’s keep our fingers crossed.

More EcoDiesel Vehicles On Their Way

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the company behind Ram, Jeep® and other brands did announce that Jeep will carry a 3.0-Liter EcoDiesel turbo-diesel V6 which will be rated at 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. This next-generation powertrain will be expected to be under the hoods of the next Jeep Wrangler and the upcom ing 2020 Jeep Gladiator, set to debut this year, according to the newest disclosures from FCA.m

There is no way to know if Ram will use the same spec of the modernized 3.0-Liter Diesel in their half-ton trucks. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will have to battle directly against the popular Ford F-150 with the Power Stroke 3.0-Liter Diesel V6. Ford’s turbo-diesel is at 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. The current Jeep turbo-diesel power rating is already a little better than the Ford powertrain. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will have its own  3.0-Liter Duramax straight-six diesel. Across the automotive industry, brands have tried to make powertrains better and better.
