Ram 1500 Now Available With Diesel V6

Everyone's favorite 2013 North American Truck of the Year, the Ram 1500, is getting a bit more truck-ier come later in the year, with the addition of Chrysler's V6 diesel option. That's the same 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 found on the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. We dig it. Outdoing the 1500's already-best-in-class 25 highway miles per gallon, the addition of the diesel will bring with it a whole new range of MPG-fullness and close to the same 240-hp and 420 lb-ft of torque found on the Grand Cherokee. The transmission- as we expected- is Chrysler's 8-speed automatic. All this diesel goodness is will be available to buyers come the third-quarter of this year.
