Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

Diesel Power - - 2019 Diesel Truck And Van Buyerõs Guide -

RAM TRUCKS in­tro­duced the new ’19 Ram 1500 but for­got one thing: a diesel en­gine. Rest as­sured, the 3.0L V-6 EcoDiesel’s come­back is slated for 2019 in the re­designed pickup. Ram plans to sell the out­go­ing 1500 along­side the new one un­der the badge “Ram 1500 Clas­sic.” Aside from the ad­di­tion of the “Clas­sic” badg­ing, the ’19 1500 Clas­sic is the same truck as 2018, although only two trims are avail­able with the diesel en­gine: Laramie, and Big Horn/ Lone Star. The diesel is also avail­able in an SLT trim, but that’s fleet-only for 2019.

Pric­ing has not been an­nounced for 2019, but pric­ing for a 2018 Laramie with the EcoDiesel V-6 starts at $47,135.

The ’19 Ram 1500 is likely to hint at the styling di­rec­tion of the brand’s forth­com­ing heavy-duty trucks as well. The 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6 en­gine re­turns as an op­tion in 2019 but is only avail­able in the “Clas­sic” 1500, which is the ear­lier 1500 mar­keted to fleet and en­try-level buy­ers.
