RAM Unveils new 480 Pounds-Feet Torque Diesel Powertrain for 2020 RAM 1500

If there's one thing that modern trucks have perfected, it's growing beyond the traditional confines of what a truck can do. Many trucks offer rich media suites and interiors perfect for the whole family. Even with all of that, however, many drivers in Ilion and Herkimer will decide on their new truck by looking at the power it packs under the hood.

With the introduction of the 2020 RAM 1500, RAM is adding in new performance options that will push its flagship truck to the forefront of the high-performance market.

A New and Powerful EcoDiesel Engine

When the 2020 Ram 1500 rolls out onto the roads of Utica and New Hartford NY, it will offer impressive new powertrain options. Included among these will be an all-new 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine capable of 480 pounds-feet of torque. With a towing peak of 12,560 pounds, it will transform the Ram 1500 into one of the most powerful half-ton pickup trucks on the market.

"The new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is America’s most powerful half-ton diesel pickup, following up on Ram’s Heavy Duty torque leadership and achieving what no other manufacturer has, with up to 480 lb.-ft. of torque in a 3.0-liter engine,” said RAM brand head Reid Bigland, in a comment. “The all-new EcoDiesel engine and our eTorque mild-hybrid powertrain technologies deliver the highest available fuel efficiency for our Ram 1500 customers."
