The all-new 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel's fuel economy numbers are in and those with a mile, but it's not too bad.
The new 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 has been rated at 32 mpg highway in two-wheel drive pickups, which is 1 mpg behind the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra diesel twins and 2 mpg better than the diesel Ford F-150. Things are better in 4×4 models, with Ram & # 39; s 29 mpg rating matching General Motors trucks and beating Ford & # 39; s 25 mpg.
However, unlike its competitors, the Ram EcoDiesel engine offers as an option with every 1500 configuration, not just higher-end trims. It represents a $ 4,995 premium over the base V6 and costs $ 3,000 more than the popular Hemi V8, with the lowest-priced Tradesman work car model coming in at $ 38,585, compared to an entry price of $ 45,200 for Ford and $ 46,225 for Chevy.
