When talking about RAM trucks, it's easy to partake in hyperbole. After all, since the RAM 1500 is one of the most powerful and popular trucks on the road, as evidenced by its consistently strong sales, it's easy to get carried away. However, it's no exaggeration to say that the 2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel that Grand Rapids residents can't stop talking about is the most fuel-efficient pickup truck ever sold in the United States.

First off, the 2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is one of the first ever diesel pickups ever to be sold in America. Public perception of diesel is largely growing more positive, since the word is getting out that diesel fuel provides drivers with a rare combination of engine power, torque, lower carbon dioxide emissions, and, of course, fuel-efficiency. In fact, the EPA recently rated the EcoDiesel in the RAM 1500 as getting 20 miles per gallon in the city, 28 miles per gallon on the highway, and 23 combined. This makes the 2014 RAM 1500 the most fuel-efficient full size truck ever sold in America -- by far.

Now, you may think that using diesel fuel comes with a loss of engine power. This couldn't be any further from the truth; the 2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is just as powerful as other variants, delivering 240 horsepower and 420 pound-per-foot of torque. Meanwhile, the fact that the truck is B20 Biodiesel-capable means that it produces less air pollutants and less greenhouse gas emissions, making the EcoDiesel the cleanest light-duty engine available. Look for the EcoDiesel on the all the RAM trims in our new RAM inventory here at Courtesy Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM.
