The 2020 Ram 1500 will soon become America’s most powerful half-ton diesel pickup with the introduction of the third-generation turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6.
480 lb.-ft.of torque and the highest available half-ton diesel towing capacity at 12,560 pounds really set the Ram 1500 apart from the competition. Coupled with the record 1,000 lb.-ft.of torque achieved by the new Ram Heavy Duty, Ram pickups now own the top spots in torque ratings.
The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will be available on all models and configurations, including a first-time offering for the Ram Rebel. It goes on sale in the fourth quarter of this year.
Mauro Puglia, Diesel Engine Chief Engineer, FCA North America, goes behind the numbers for a closer look at how this new EcoDiesel engine benchmark was achieved.
