The new generation of the legendary truck had a premiere a few months ago and one of the new versions to come will be 2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. Originally introduced two years ago, this version will continue to be in the offer for the next generation as well. Of course, it will follow all those changes that were presented recently.
The new generation comes with some radical changes and this is probably the most radical redesign in past 25 years. Changes are numerous. There’s a new chassis, a new look and much more. Still, a familiar V6 diesel engine from Italy is likely to remain the same. So, 2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will be a mixture of a new generation and a proven powertrain. We expect to see this version on the market by in next several months.
2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel redesign
Just like base gasoline models, this version will suffer various modifications as well. The new generations of this truck brings plenty of changes and 2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will include all of them. First of all, there is a new architecture, which brings many benefits. First of all, expect better driving dynamics. The new model will be lighter. Thanks to the massive use of HSS, it will be stronger too. The new chassis is for about 100 pounds lighter. Combined with other weight savings, total curb weight will be for about 225 pounds lighter. This is crucial for the driving dynamics, but the company also promises better performances when it comes to things like off-road capabilities, towing etc. Besides new chassis, the 2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel also comes with a completely new look.
The 2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will feature a completely new look. The new design language includes plenty of novelties. The old front end that dates from Dodge era has finally been dropped. The new looks include a redesigned front end, which includes a new grille, as well as new headlights among other changes. The overall impression is amazing. The new 2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will look far more attractive compared to the outgoing model. So far, we don’t have information about possible tweaks for this particular version. It should feature pretty much the same look as gasoline models, without more important distinguish details.
On the inside, we expect to see more refinement. Compared to the outgoing model, the new one will come with better materials insider, as well as more elegant dashboard layout.
2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel engine
This is the most important details of the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. We used on gasoline versions of this legendary truck. However, the company started offering a diesel engine, starting from the 2017-year model. Since this engine is still very fresh, we don’t expect changes for this redesign, even in terms of power.
The current version delivers around 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, which promises great towing capabilities. Fuel economy will be on a high level too, somewhere around 24 mpg in a combined drive. Besides this diesel version, expect few gasoline engines in the offer. Base versions will feature a familiar Pentastar V6, but V8 units will be in the offer as well.
Release date and price
The new generation is almost ready for production and we expect its launch in about a month. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel should come right after, probably in summer months.
When it comes to the price, we don’t expect bigger changes compared to the outgoing model. To remind you, the current version starts at 28.500. So, expect similar numbers for the upcoming model.
