RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Reviews

Don’t take our word on the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel. Here’s what some of the industry’s top critics had to say in their RAM 1500 EcoDiesel reviews:

  • CNET: “In its High Fuel Efficiency trim, the EcoDiesel’s fuel economy is estimated at 26 combined mpg, breaking out to 23 city mpg and the aforementioned 33 highway mpg. That’s only a single mpg better than the non-HFE diesel, but for comparison, the 3.6-liter eTorque mild-hybrid system returns just 26 highway mpg when spec’d at the same HFE Tradesman trim. Meanwhile, the dune-hopping TRX only musters 14 highway mpg, but who’s counting?”
  • Autotrader: “If you want fuel economy that’s better than the eTorque 3.6’s, consider the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. With 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, the Italian-built 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 endows a rear-drive 2021 Ram with an impressive EPA fuel economy of 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway. With 4WD, that drops only slightly, to 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway. The diesel is available on all Ram 1500s except the new TRX.”
