RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Review: Engine Power

Gasoline simply can’t match diesel when it comes to engine power — and there’s a good reason for that! Diesel engines use high compression rather than spark plugs to ignite fuel, which causes full combustion of the fuel to occur almost instantly. That quick combustion translates to more energy, increased torque, and better RAM EcoDiesel towing capacity on the road in Monon! RAM EcoDiesel specs you can count on for the 3.0L engine include:

  • 240 horsepower
  • 420 lb-ft of torque
  • 9,290-lb max towing capacity
