Everyone knows the RAM 1500 is a workhorse. Maybe that’s why we see so many of them rolling around Clear Lake. At the heart of many of those hardworking trucks is the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel engine. This powerful V6 engine is an available option on the 2020 RAM 1500. But the RAM EcoDiesel mpg rating is higher than what you’d expect from the typical light-duty pickup with a V6. Maybe the most impressive thing about this engine is the RAM EcoDiesel towing capacity. No wonder the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel reviews have so many good things to say about this engine.

2020 RAM EcoDiesel MPG Rating

The EPA estimated RAM EcoDiesel mpg is 22 for city driving, which is maybe what you’d expect, if not a little higher. But it raises all the way up to a whopping 32 mpg for highway driving.  We should note that this estimate is for trucks with an 8-speed automatic transmission and a 4×2 drivetrain. When the 1500 is fitted with other options, mileage may vary.

2020 RAM EcoDiesel Towing Capacity

The RAM EcoDiesel towing capacity is best in class and blows other light-duty pickups out of the water. Churning out 260 horsepower and 480 pounds of torque, this beast can haul up to 12,560 pounds. That’s more than enough to tow a boat or camper around the Houston area. Of course, if you need a more powerful truck than that, you can check out the Ram 2500 or 3500.

What the 2020 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Reviews Say

Don’t just take our word for how great this engine is. See what the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel reviews are saying:

  • Motor Trend: “The 2020 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel that I just spent a day driving, towing, and off-roading across Minnesota is set to be the feather in the cap of Ram’s 2019.”
  • CNET: “Offering gains in fuel economy, towing and payload, but without ruining anything we already like about the RAM, the EcoDiesel engine is a great addition to a fantastic truck.”
