Ram has just made an exciting announcement about a new model: the 2020 Ram 1500. Following the success of the 2019 Ram 1500, the newest model contains an EcoDiesel engine that makes the vehicle even better and stronger than the last.

The EcoDiesel engine and other great features of the 2020 Ram 1500

We can’t talk about the 2020 Ram 1500 without talking about its 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine. The engine has a horsepower of 260 at 3,600 rpm, which is an 8 percent increase from the previous generation.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the EcoDiesel V6 is its torque. The vehicle has an astounding 480 lb-ft. of torque at 1,600 rpm, which is 14 percent higher than the previous generation’s torque.

Thanks to the engine, the 2019 Ram 1500 has more power than any other half-ton diesel pickup in America. Adding to its strength, the vehicle also has a towing capacity of up to 12,560 pounds, pushing this light-duty diesel to the head of its pack.

According to Reid Bigland, head of the Ram brand, “The all-new EcoDiesel engine and our eTorque mild-hybrid powertrain technologies deliver the highest available fuel efficiency for our Ram 1500 customers.” This is great news for those wanting to save a few dollars on gas.

Another awesome feature of the 2020 Ram 1500 besides the EcoDiesel engine is Uconnect 4C, which has a 12-inch touch screen and 360-degree camera views. The pickup also has two times the storage space of competing vehicles and a stellar safety system put in place.
