RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Gets Best Mileage in its Class
Incorporating the latest green technologies in its cars, trucks and SUVs is a priority of automotive companies, and the new RAM 1500 EcoDiesel currently surpasses all other vehicles in what it offers. We took a look at some of the different ways the EcoDiesel light duty Truck of its Class is so outstanding.
Toronto drivers will be excited to know that the new RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is now in a class all its own. Not only can it tow 9200 lb with ease, it has 28 miles per gallon and achieves six mpg more fuel economy that the most superior F150 Eco-Boost can. The superior capability of this pick-up truck is compounded by its outstanding fuel economy that resembles that of a compact car.
As the very first turbo-diesel with unique advanced technology in its half-ton pickup segment, the EcoDiesel has an unsurpassable 420 lb/ft torque among other full-size trucks that come with V-6 engines. The RAM 1500 EcoDiesel offers a fuel economy that just can’t be beat. As the only truck to get 28 mpg on the highway, 20 mpg in the city and 23 mpg with both combined, it has just been named Truck of the Year by Esquire magazine. Projections estimate that over the coming years about 50% of vehicles on European roads and 15% of those in North America will be made up of light diesel vehicles.
The reasons for this are clear. The regulations on vehicle emissions have been increasingly stringent and auto makers have been making vehicles that are environmentally friendly as well as very cost effective. Clean diesel, made from a new generation of fuel that combats greenhouse gas and provides clean air and energy security has been the answer.
The RAM 1500’s superior fuel economy and capability is making it set the pace with absolutely the best trucks out there. The turbo diesel technology that’s made up of 97% less sulfur than regular diesel has been incorporated into it. By being more environmentally friendly and cutting soot emissions by almost 10%, the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel has caught the attention of many drivers who otherwise wouldn’t have considered buying a pickup. What could be better for Canadians than a truck with a V6 engine that offers the workhorse capability of a diesel and the optimal fuel efficiency of a compact car? Check it out!
