2014 Ram 1500 revealed, EcoDiesel engine specifications announced

Chrysler has officially unveiled the 2014 Ram 1500.

Since the model was recently given an extensive facelift, the truck has minor updates including a revised color palette - that now includes Blue Streak and Granite Crystal - and a new front park assist system that can detect objects that are up to 47.2 inches (120 cm) away. There's also a variable displacement air compressor and a pulse-width modulation blower which help to reduce parasitic engine loss to improve fuel efficiency.

The big news is the addition of a 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine that produces 240 bhp (179 kW) and 420 lb-ft (568 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which will enable the truck to have a best-in-class fuel economy rating.

The 2014 Ram 1500 will be priced from $24,200 which excludes a $1,095 destination charge. Trucks equipped with the EcoDiesel engine will cost $2,850 more than similarly equipped models with the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 and the eight-speed automatic transmission.
