When it comes to diesel pickup trucks, many people tend to incorrectly associate them with the dirty, loud, and inefficient diesel vehicles that were popular in the 1980s. A lot of time has passed since these unsuccessful vehicles came and went, and it's time for a new era of diesel-powered vehicles. Leading the diesel charge is the 2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel, which is sure to usher in a new wave of clean, powerful, and efficient diesel trucks.

Here at Courtesy Chrysler Jeep Dodge, we now have the innovative new 2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel in our new RAM inventory. First off, Grand Rapids residents should know that the 2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is the only diesel-powered light duty pickup truck as of now. During a time when fuel economy standards are tightening, it makes strategic sense for Chrysler to roll out this revolutionary truck, because it gives drivers through the roof gas mileage numbers, at least for a pickup truck. The 2014 RAM 1500 equipped with the EcoDiesel gets an estimated 19 miles per gallon in town and 27 miles per gallon on the highway, number that are unmatched in the pickup truck segment.

Going into a little more detail about the new V6 EcoDiesel engine, we can see that its advantages are many. In addition to the increased fuel economy, it allows Grand Rapids drivers to haul more thanks to its higher amount (420 pound-per foot) of torque, and adds a longer service life and a higher value at trade-in. The diesel's range is also impressive, allowing drivers to travel up to 728 miles on a single tank.

As with the other versions of the RAM 1500 for sale, Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids drivers need to head down to Courtesy Chrysler Jeep Dodge to test drive the 2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel!
