In 2020 the already powerful RAM will become America's most potent half-ton diesel pickup. The all-new third-generation 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel not only will lead the segment in fuel economy but will also have 480 lb-ft of torque and a towing capacity of 12,560 pounds. Available in all models and configurations, the 2020 RAM EcoDiesel will go on sale during the fourth quarter of 2019. Pricing and official fuel economy ratings will be announced closer to the release date. For those who purchase a 2019 RAM 1500 Classic an option of a second-generation 3.0-liter EcoDiesel will be available. 

Manufactured in Ferrara, Italy, the turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 delivers impressive torque and horsepower to go along with a minimal level of noise, vibrations, and harshness that will meet the needs of any RAM owner. Rated at a best-in-class 480 lb.-ft of torque at 1,600 rpm, the RAM 1500's EcoDiesel engine also comes with an eight percent increase in horsepower to 260 at 3,600 rpm. Several significant changes contribute to the EcoDiesel's improve dynamic and superior fuel economy, including a water-cooled turbocharger with variable geometry turbine, which increases efficiency and responsiveness during transient conditions. A redesigned cylinder head intake ports improve swirl and flow, which increases performance and fuel economy. Lightweight pistons are entirely redesigned to include thinner rings and low-friction coating on the pin and side skirts to reduce losses. And dual vacuum pump system uses electric and a new mechanical low-friction pump with new blades which improves overall system efficiency. 

The upgrades provided by the new EcoDiesel V6 build on the previous successes that made the engine the winner of the "Wards 10 Best Engines" three years running. This new EcoDiesel V6 uses a block cast with compacted graphite iron, which provides strength to dampen vibrations, but weighs less than grey cast iron. The forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods add strength and durability, while the heat-treated cylinder heads use individual bearing caps to reduce friction. For the first time, the EcoDiesel will be offered in the Ram Rebel.
