Diesel-powered 2014 Ram 1500 to Get 27 MPG Combined
Official numbers are still a long way off, but Bigland’s announcement adds to Ram’s initial claims that the Diesel-powered 1500 will return at least 25 miles per gallon on the highway. However, 27 mpg combine would translate into 30+ mpg on the highway - quite impressive when compared to the V6 gasoline’s highway rating of 25 mpg - so we’re going to wait for the EPA to provide some figures before jumping in with both feet.
As a reminder, the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is powered by a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 that delivers 240 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque and can be had as an option for an extra $2,850. The diesel 2014 model is expected to tow up to of 9,200 pounds.
