Ram EcoDiesel Specs

3.0L EcoDiesel for the Ram 1500 & Jeep Grand Cherokee

Pickup owners and enthusiasts have patiently awaited the arrival of the next era of light duty diesels. Prior to 2007 Chrysler tossed around the idea of offering two different diesel options for its 1/2 ton Ram pickup, both of which were conceptualized by Cummins, the same company whose legendary reputation has helped sell Ram 3/4 and 1 ton pickups since 1989. 2014 marked the end of the wait for prospective Ram 1500 diesel buyers, but with a bit of a plot twist; Cummins is not involved in Ram Truck's latest diesel endeavor. Rather, Italian engine manufacturer VM Motori is producing the engines, a company whom Chrysler has had a long standing partnership with in its European operations since the 90's; Fiat-Chrysler fully acquired VM in 2013.
