Based upon Dodge’s excitement for scorching its own one-of-a-kind trail, we must’ve figured Ram would certainly be the first to supply a diesel alternative in its half-ton. We would certainly listened to rumors that Ram could be presenting it, yet were pleasantly amazed when the firm made the main news. This marks the very first such choice in any type of half-ton in 25 years and also the very first time because 1978 Dodge/Ram has supplied one in a half-ton. From what we understand, Ram released information on the diesel a little earlier than it had actually initially planned, so since press time, we just have initial information on the use of the turbodiesel in the Ram 1500.
For model-year 2014, the Ram 1500 will be offered with a turbodiesel choice. Like in the Grand Cherokee, it will certainly be matched with an eight-speed automatic transmission called TorqueFlite in the Ram.
