The Ram 1500 is a popular pickup truck from the American manufacturers, and consistently improves with every new model. This vehicle is one of our top sellers at Scap Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we have always been proud to include it in our lineup.

This is especially true when Ram manufacturers include new variations which advance the vehicle's performance output and mass appeal, like the vehicle's new EcoDiesel engine. This engine works to perform at the same high levels you expect from Ram trucks, while also lessening the vehicle's environmental impact and improving its fuel economy.


The 1500 can deliver a towing capacity of up to 12,560 lbs with the EcoDiesel engine, showing that it's definitely still up there with the best of the best. A max payload of over one ton is also worth mentioning - that means you won't need to hitch up a trailer for a lot of heavy equipment. Up to 260 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque work to make the 1500 feel light on its wheel, and they do so magnificently - it's definitely easy to handle.

For a baseline model, we find all this is very impressive, and it's even more impressive when you realize that the Ram 1500 is the only light-duty model in the entire Ram lineup to offer a diesel powertrain. Obviously, this was done with the intent to make the 1500 stand out that much more from the competition, and it does just that.

Fuel Economy

While no one expects their pickup trucks to be smart cars when it comes to fuel usage, it's still a plus when you can save on your annual fuel costs. The 1500, when equipped with the EcoDiesel engine, delivers 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. That's very good for a light-duty pickup truck, and one of the best in its class at the moment.
