It is as simple as that - if you were shopping for a new 2014 Ram 1500 right now, would you consider the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6? Vote in the poll above and tell us why you voted that way below!

The majority of the time I'm not doing "truck" things with mine. I'd go for a diesel. superior mileage + long engine life. I'd rather have a 4cyl though.

If I were to buy a diesel, then I would buy the 3.0 V6 diesel. I have driven them and they have a lot of torque. I have also driven the Ram 2500 Gas/CNG and the has a lot of torque as well.
