For quite some time I have wondered why a truck manufacturer doesn’t build a light-duty diesel pick-up that is both affordable and efficient. Dodge stepped up to the plate for model year 2014.

Beginning in the third-quarter of this year, Dodge Ram will become the only brand to offer a small-displacement diesel in a half-ton line of pickup trucks.

The 2014 Ram 1500 will offer a new, 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine, mated with the eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. The powertrain is expected to deliver an outstanding combination of best-in-class fuel efficiency and best-in-class torque at 420 lb-ft torque for towing and hauling.
