Once upon a time, Ram was the only name in the game when it came to half-ton diesel pickups. However, recent years have seen stiff competition with the availability of diesel engines in a greater range of not only pickups but compacts and midsize vehicles as well.

2020 Ram EcoDiesel?

Ram is resetting the playing field with the introduction of its all-new third-generation 2020 EcoDiesel, the descendant of the original EcoDiesel that brought it so much glory in the past. Featuring a 3.0-liter 260-horsepower, 480 lb-ft V6 EcoDiesel engine, this latest model is the most advanced Ram truck to date and is set to outpace all of its rivals.

Initial reviews indicate the EcoDiesel provides a smooth performance with a quiet ride and all of the power you would expect from such a potent engine. The 480 lb-ft of torque it provides is unparalleled for half-ton diesels, as is its 12,560-pound towing capacity. While some of the finer numbers have yet to be released, the EcoDiesel seems poised to offer best in value: with superior towing, payload, torque and fuel economy all in one package.

Also worth noting is the introduction of a diesel engine in the Rebel trim. Known for its superior off-roading capability and overall ability to get very dirty, the Rebel is beloved by off-road enthusiasts. Now available with a low-rpm EcoDiesel and a 3.92 axle ratio, the Rebel can finally crawl around the toughest terrain.

Ram may have slipped from its throne in recent years, but the introduction of this latest EcoDiesel hints at the return of the rightful king.
