We’ve already made room for 2020 RAM 1500 models at our RAM dealership serving Sugar Land, TX, but we’re anxiously awaiting the arrival of models equipped with the new RAM 1500 EcoDiesel engine. What makes this new powertrain so special? Here’s a brief overview of what to expect when this engine becomes available later this fall.

How is it Different?

The RAM 1500 is known as one of the most rugged, work-ready, and versatile full-size pickup trucks on the market. This impressive truck was fully redesigned for the 2019 model year and those improvements proved to deliver more impressive payload and towing capacity. And now the addition of the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel engine on 2020 trims ups the ante on power.

For the first time ever, this reconfigured engine will be available in every trim level and configuration of the RAM 1500. We're excited to see that at our RAM dealer near Houston, TX.

What is it Capable of?

This new diesel engine is the third generation of the turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine. It promises to deliver a 14% increase in torque for a best-in-class rating of 480 lb.-ft. You can also expect this engine to earn 260 horsepower, which is 8% more powerful than prior versions.

The manufacturer also boasts a number of changes that yield even greater efficiency. For example, the cylinder head intake has been redesigned to allow better flow and fuel economy.

If you’d like to be one of the first to experience the 2020 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel engine, contact us at Gillman Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM. Give us a call, stop by in person, or connect with us online, and we’ll keep you posted as soon as EcoDiesel-equipped RAM trucks arrive at our Houston car dealership.
