Future Plans: Ram Diesel 1500

2009 dodge ram

At a briefing for the 2009 Ram, a Chrysler spokesman confirmed that a diesel will be offered in the half-ton next year, probably as a 2010 model, but declined to say which diesel it will be.

Either Cummins' modular V-6 or V-8 would fit, but if there can be only one, we hope it'll be the 4.2-liter V-6. It has superior economy with Hemi-like torque and it'll be more competitive with Ford and GM, which are both readying light-duty diesels in the 4.5-liter range.
