Stellantis: Ram 1500 EcoDiesel production concludes in January 2023

14 September 2022

Stellantis announced a final opportunity for its customers to order its Ram 1500 EcoDiesel model—production of the 2023 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will conclude in January 2023.

The EcoDiesel V-6 engine was introduced in 2014, and significantly upgraded in 2020.

The 2020 Ram 1500, powered by the new-generation 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel, was the US’ most powerful half-ton diesel pickup—according to Stellantis—with 480 lb-ft of torque (651 Nm) and a towing capability up to 12,560 lbs.

The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel 4×2 scored 32 mpg (7.35 L/100 km) highway and 29 mpg (8.11 L/100 km) highway for 4×4 models. Ram EcoDiesel’s range exceeded 1,000 miles per fill-up, the highest among all pickup trucks. The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was available in all models and configurations, including a first-time offering in the Ram Rebel.

The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 for the Ram 1500 was produced at the Stellantis’ VM Motori Cento facility in Ferrara, Italy. Heavier versions of Ram diesel pick-up trucks have been powered by Cummins Turbo Diesel engines.

In 2024, Ram will offer a 1500 battery-electric vehicle (BEV) pickup truck, a full portfolio of electrified vehicles in the majority of its segments by 2025, and in all segments by 2030, the company said.
