The 2014 Ram 1500 with the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 is the most efficient half ton truck engine on the market today while still offering plenty of power to tow and haul. Unlike most super efficient pickups that sacrifice performance and capabilities for high fuel economy numbers, the EcoDiesel Ram will do almost all of the work of the Hemi powered pickups but there are critics of the half ton diesel pickup that insist that the American consumer market wont look favorably upon an oil burning light duty truck. The key factor facing the diesel Ram 1500 is the cost of the EcoDiesel engine package and EcoDiesel buyers who buy a less expensive Ram SLT can expect to pay $4,000 for the diesel V6 while those folks buying the more expensive packages like the Laramie will pay slightly less – around $2,900.
