Ram 1500 Could Share New Diesel Engine With Jeep Gladiator

There’s a new EcoDiesel engine on the way for the Ram 1500.

According to a report coming from Autoblog, the EcoDiesel diesel engine is coming to the Ram 1500, but it won’t be a simple carry-over. It will be a redesigned 3.0-liter turbodiesel that’s also expected down the road in the Jeep Gladiator.

That means consumers can expect 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque compared to the current engine’s 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. The Ram EcoDiesel engine has been offered in the Ram 1500 since 2014 and accounted for roughly 1 in 5 sales.

Speaking with Ram Trucks boss Jim Morrison, the team at Autoblog were told the new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel would be available later this year. The engine is expected in the new Jeep Gladiator mid-sized pickup in 2020. Speaking of mid-sized pickups, Morrison was apparently very clear that we shouldn’t expect one from Ram just yet. A Ram Dakota? Not happening right now although Morrison did give the standard “were considering options” response.

FCA probably wants to keep the spotlight on the Gladiator for now, and once the hype has passed looking into a second mid-sized pickup for its ranks. Lastly, Morrison confirmed that regular cab versions weren’t planned for the new Ram 1500 in the near future.
