Ram has announced prices for its new diesel engine alternative, and it's both a lot and a bit.
The 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 will cost Ram 1500 pickup buyers $ 4,995 more than the base V6 and $ 3,000 more than the popular Hemi V8, with the lowest-priced model coming in at $ 38,585.
The price is significantly less than the cheapest Chevy Silverado 1500 and Ford F-150 diesel, which go for $ 45,200 and $ 46,225. That's because Ram offers its engine at all levels, including work cars, while Chevy and Ford currently reserve the diesel for a limited number of high-end models.
Ram also claims the lightweight towing attachment crown with a top rating of 12,560 pounds, while the most F-150 and Silverado can pull are 11,400 pounds and 9,300 pounds in currently available configurations.
What has not yet been revealed before the Ram trucks hit the showrooms this fall is their fuel economy ratings. So far, the best in Silverado class cops are capable of delivering as much as 33 mpg on the highway.
