The EcoDiesel engine that can be equipped under the hood of the 2020 Ram 1500 will make up to 260 horsepower and a best-in-class 480 pound-feet of torque. These numbers represent increases of eight and 14 percent, respectively. Additionally, the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is expected to lead its corner of the segment in fuel economy.

“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,” Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand, said in a press release. “The all-new EcoDiesel engine and our eTorque mild-hybrid powertrain technologies deliver the highest available fuel efficiency for our Ram 1500 customers.”

When Ram engineers were building the engine, they didn’t just open it up to burn more fuel to make more power. They introduced a new-generation water-cooled turbocharger for increased efficiency and throttle responsiveness. Additionally, the exhaust gas recirculation system has been updated to minimize energy loss by the turbocharging unit which will also boost fuel efficiency.
