We will have to wait little longer for the 2015 Ram 1500 to become available in the showrooms but we already are getting decent amount of info about this truck. Media and public interest is high and most of the attention is delivered to the 2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel version.
Popularity is rising and from the company representatives we could hear that it could even steal nice piece of market segment where both GM and Ford dominated for many years. Not only truck drivers are attracted to this new offer but we are getting more interest from soccer moms and dads that have noticed improvements on design and look for this vehicle. Before, they would be interested in SUV vehicles only but it seams that things are changing little bit.
Truck of the Year has been won by Ram four times in past 20 years and with new model there is no doubt that they will have great chances to do this yet again. Looking at the current and past lineup of Ram we can notice that there are some really great trucks and a lot of tradition comes from this car maker. This tradition needs to be continued if RAM wants to be again on top of the market.
2015 Ram 1500 Diesel
Compared to the rest of the industry that has about 18 percent increase in truck sales, Ram managed to improve sale results for about 25 percent, which is far better than competition. Even they are making big sale number improvements they will not stop and the 2015 Ram 1500 will bring additional improvements and changes that will make them even more competitive on this market segment.
Depending on the trim level in which you choose your 2015 Ram 1500 you will be able to get many features that we usually see in family sedans and this is done to increase the level of luxury and to bring it closer to people that would be buying SUV’s. Features like heated seats, heated steering wheel, adaptive air suspension, Wi-Fi, DVD player and more are available here.
Ram 1500 EcoDiesel
One of the main factors when buying new car is the fuel economy and the 2015 Ram 1500 with EcoDiesel engine could be getting 27 mpg. These are predictions from the company but we will have to wait for the official info on this one. This is possible mainly due to great diesel unit but also the weight since this is a light duty truck. We do expect to see this truck available in the first quarter of 2014 with the price of slightly under $ 30.000.
Compared to the Hemi V8 model for the 2015 Ram 1500 with EcoDiesel unit you will need to pay additional $ 2850 but when the fuel economy comes to play it will be possible to get the return of investment in about 12 to 18 months depending on the mileage. This will be one quite capable truck with 240 hp and 420 pound feet of torque and ability to tow 9.200 pounds. It will be interesting to see will the U.S. market accept the diesel powered truck, it is a great chance to significantly reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emission.
