Little has changed since we got our first shot at the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: The Donald’s coiffure remains a triumph of applied engineering, artisanal toast inexplicably is still a thing, and Ram remains the only full-size, half-ton pickup to offer a diesel. Soon, however, there will be new competition, albeit indirect. Nissan’s 2016 Titan XD tweener is scheduled to hit showrooms later this year packing a Cummins diesel V-8, and GM’s slightly smaller Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon twins are adding a diesel four-cylinder for 2016. For now, though, the Ram has the full-size, light-duty segment to itself.

By the Numbers

Ram announced late last year that 20 percent of all 1500 pickup production capacity—fully twice the projected figure—was dedicated to the EcoDiesel, and it remains higher than 15 percent. That statement should come as little surprise, as diesels typically offer two things truck buyers covet: torque and efficiency.

As for the former, the Ram’s 3.0-liter turbocharged EcoDiesel V-6 cranks out 420 lb-ft at a relatively low 2000 rpm, ideal for doing truck stuff like towing, hauling, and crawling around in four-wheel-drive low-range while off-road. By comparison, Ram’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 is rated at 269 lb-ft, the big-dog 5.7-liter Hemi at 410 lb-ft. Although the diesel’s 240 horsepower can’t match the 305- and 395-hp figures of the gasoline V-6 and Hemi V-8, you’d never know it based on around-town driving. The diesel’s low-end grunt makes quick work of motivating all 5688 pounds of a 19-foot-long Crew Cab 1500 like our test model.

Rated to tow an SAE J2807-certified 8560 pounds, the EcoDiesel bests an equivalent 1500 3.6-liter, which is rated for 7180 pounds. Option a Ram 1500 Crew Cab with the Hemi, however, and you can tow up to 10,150 pounds. (At that point, however, many shoppers with that much to lug might be tempted to just move up to a three-quarter- or one-ton diesel-powered machine like a Ram 3500, Ford Super Duty, or Chevy Silverado 3500 HD.)

While these numbers accurately reflect capability, it’s easy to lend too much credence to paper victories when comparing trucks. Based on our real-world experience, the EcoDiesel’s torque and its linear response make it a perfect partner for truck duty regardless of payload.

As for efficiency, the situation is a bit more complicated. Choosing the diesel option in the Ram 1500 will cost you $4960 over the base Hemi V-8 with a six-speed automatic, $4270 more than the V-6 with the eight-speed auto, and $3120 more than a Hemi with the eight-speed. For that sum, you not only get the 3.0-liter V-6 oil-burner, but also a 230-amp alternator, 800-amp battery, max-duty engine cooling, a 26-gallon fuel tank, and a 3.55:1 rear axle. The diesel also requires an upgrade to the 8HP70 eight-speed automatic, for $500. So you’re in for nearly $5K before you burn through your first tank of diesel fuel.

Our test truck came equipped with the provocatively named Big Horn package ($1205), which brings a Class IV trailer hitch, an electric-shift transfer case, fog lamps, bright exhaust tips, a power driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, a folding rear seat, and a 115-volt AC outlet. Swapping in a 3.92:1 rear axle ($50) for the aforementioned 3.55:1 unit and adding front and rear rubber floor mats ($80) barely nicks the beer fund. Chrysler’s familiar Uconnect system ($1005) with the 8.4-inch screen and the usual complement of services (AM/FM/SiriusXM with Bluetooth, plus USB, SD, and auxiliary inputs) handles the infotainment chores. Our truck came with the 17-inch chrome wheel option instead of 20-inchers, triggering a $500 credit. In all, the extras added $6610, bringing the total price to $47,555.

MPG and MPH

With EPA ratings of 19 mpg city and 27 highway, the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel tops the 16/23 estimates for the V-6 1500 Crew Cab and the 15/21 numbers for the same truck with the 5.7-liter Hemi and eight-speed auto. In our hands, the EcoDiesel returned 21 mpg in combined driving. We did witness an indicated 29 mpg on long, flat stretches of expressway at 65 mph in neighboring states with notoriously stringent speed-enforcement policies. (Hello, Cleveland!) Conversely, we were a little more aggressive with the accelerator pedal around town than the average owner is likely to be. Even so, when considered against the 15 mpg we saw in our test of a 2013 Ram 1500 V-6 and the 17 mpg of our 40,000-mile, long-term Ram 1500 Crew Cab V-6, the EcoDiesel’s 22 mpg is an impressive number.

Somewhat less impressive is the zero-to-60-mph number, with the EcoDiesel taking 9.0 seconds, a full 1.2 longer than our departed long-term V-6 Ram. The quarter-mile measure fared similarly, the EcoDiesel’s 16.9-second time lagging slightly behind the long-termer’s 16.0-second run. Neither is going to win many races, but where the gasoline V-6 sometimes feels strained, the EcoDiesel just powers through, as if saying to the driver, “Yeah, what else ya got?”

The wild card here, of course, is the Ford F-150 3.5-liter EcoBoost. Not content to simply match the EcoDiesel’s 420 lb-ft of torque, the twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 keeps 365 horsepower on tap, sufficient to knock out a 14.4-second quarter-mile time, as measured in our testing. At the same time, however, the Ford returned just 16 mpg in combined driving. Interestingly, despite an aluminum-intensive construction, the 2015 F-150 Crew Cab EcoBoost 4x4 we tested weighed in at 5577 pounds, just 111 pounds fewer than the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.

It’ll take plenty of research to determine if dropping the extra coin on the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will pencil in your favor­. Your type of driving, payloads, trailering, annual mileage, and the cost of diesel in your area all will factor into the equation. However, no spreadsheet can illuminate how right the EcoDiesel feels from the driver’s seat.

2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel MPG Review: Undisputed MPG Champ of the World

2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel HFE's 24-MPG Fuel Efficiency: How They Did It

Earlier this month, Fiat Chrysler announced an even higher fuel-efficiency rating for a new model of the 2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel--to be called HFE.

The HFE--or High Fuel Efficiency--version boosts the fuel economy of what is already the most efficient full-size pickup truck on sale to an estimated 24 mpg combined (21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway).

That's just a 1 mpg increase in each category over the standard, rear-wheel drive EcoDiesel, but that improvement saves more gallons of fuel than a 1-mpg improvement would in the 50-mpg Toyota Prius.

Achieving that improvement was just a matter of combining existing features that weren't previously offered together, according to Ram Trucks media representative Nick Cappa.

The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel HFE model is essentially a combination of features from two different trim levels, with many components--like gearing and tires--left unchanged from the standard model that's already available.

It is based on the entry-level Tradesman, but that model's spray-in bedliner and trailer hitch have been eliminated to save weight.

The front bumper and 20-inch wheels from the Ram 1500 Express model are added, because of their better aerodynamic properties, Cappa says.

Finally, the HFE is only available in a rear-wheel-drive crew cab configuration--which was judged to be the lightest body style that would still sell in significant volumes.

The 3.0-liter turbocharged EcoDiesel V-6 appears unchanged, producing the same 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque it does in other models.

Like other EcoDiesel models, an eight-speed automatic transmission is also mandatory equipment.

Regardless of which engine is under the hood, all Ram 1500 models also come standard with notable fuel-saving features, including active grille shutters, aerodynamic under-body panels, and an engine start-stop system.

The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel HFE goes on sale later in the first quarter of 2015, joining an existing HFE model equipped with the 3.6-liter Pentastar gasoline V-6.

That model is rated at 21 mpg combined (18 mpg city, 25 mpg highway).

Ram ups mpg in pickup truck mileage battle

The 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel that was unveiled this week at the Detroit Auto Show.

DETROIT -- Ram threw down the fuel economy gauntlet -- again -- on Tuesday at the auto show here by announcing that some versions of the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will get 29 miles per gallon on the highway.

The 2015 Ram 1500 Express and the 2015 models will get 29 miles per gallon on the highway with the optional diesel engine -- one mile per gallon more than other Ram 1500 pickups with the same engine.

More importantly, it extends Ram's fuel economy leadership in the half-ton pickup segment, giving the Ram brand even more to boast about in the fiercely competitive pickup truck wars between Fiat Chrysler, General Motors and Ford.

"This truck delivers the highest fuel economy among all pickups in the industry," Bob Hegbloom, CEO of the Ram brand said today at the North American International Show in Detroit. "I look at it as a big deal."

By touting the fuel economy improvement today, at the North American International Auto Show, the automaker made it clear it wants the world to know that it remains the fuel economy leader despite the recent introduction of a lighter version of the Ford's F-150 with an aluminum body and recently redesigned versions of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.

"For the time being we still hold the record on mileage and it's not just in terms of diesel, I think the whole lineup is superb," Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne said today. "We've seen a lot of noise around the … mileage and introduction of new materials."

Ford introduced a redesigned F-150 late last year that has an aluminum body and is up to 700 pounds lighter than the outgoing version. The most efficient version of the F-150, with a 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine, gets 19 mpg in the city, 26 on the highway and 22 mpg combined.

While it does not beat the Ram EcoDiesel, it is the best among gasoline-powered pickups.

"The all-new Ford F-150 with EcoBoost has the highest EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of any gasoline-powered full-size pickup sold in America," Ford said in a statement. "All F-150 customers benefit from 5 percent to 29 percent better fuel economy than current F-150 models and lower fuel prices at the pump than diesel."

The fuel economy performance for the Ram 1500 Express and Tradesman with a diesel engine is 21 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway for combined figure of 24 mpg.

In the past, Ford has pointed out that Ram's EcoDiesel engine costs more and that diesel fuel costs more than gasoline.

A Ram with an EcoDiesel engine costs about $2,850 more than a 5.7-liter Hemi V8. The average price of a gallon of regular gas was just $2.12 on compared with $2.99 for a gallon of diesel fuel.

Ram's 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine generates 240 horsepower and 420 pound feet of torque. Also, diesel fuel is denser than gas and will take a vehicle farther than a gallon of gas.

The improved fuel economy for the 2015 Ram 1500 models is possible because the Express and Tradesman versions of the 1500 are more aerodynamic than other Ram 1500 models because of a Tonneau over the bed of the truck, wheel-to-wheel side steps and the quad cab configuration.

Last year, Ram did not offer the EcoDiesel on the Tradesman and Express versions of the Ram 1500.

Ram has been gaining market share in the U.S. over the past several years.

In 2014, sales of Ram pickups increased 23.6% to 439,789 while sales of the F-150 increased 1.3% and sales of the Chevrolet Silverado increased 10.3%.

Ram remains America's third most popular pickup truck but is gaining market share. In 2014, sales of the pickup accounted for 21.3% of full-size pickup sales, up from 18.6% in 2013.

Those gains could end this year because Ford slowed down production of its trucks last year to make way for its new F-150.

Hegbloom, however, said he's confident Ram's momentum will continue. One reason for that is because the automaker revealed another version of the 1500 today, the Ram Rebel.
