Our sister site 5thGenRams.com, was lucky enough to spend a day driving the new 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel lineup late last week. While our driving impressions are under embargo until 12:01 AM tomorrow, Ram Trucks Canada have released pricing on the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel models.
The 2020 Ram 1500 with the third-generation 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 produces 260 horsepower @ 3,600 RPM and 480 lb.-ft of torque at 1,600 RPM, providing a class-leading half-ton diesel towing capacity of 12,560 lbs. when properly equipped. For the first time, the EcoDiesel will also be available across all trim levels of the Ram 1500, including the Rebel and allowing buyers more choice.
So what will the new third-generation EcoDiesel set you back? Try $5,800 over the standard on Tradesman, and Big Horn trims 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 featuring the eTorque system, and $3,900 over the standard 5.7-liter HEMI V8 on Sport, Rebel, Laramie, Longhorn, and Limited trim levels. On Laramie, Longhorn, and Limited trims the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with eTorque is also optional for $795, putting this EcoDiesel at an MSRP of $3,105 higher than the HEMI eTorque in Canada.
A 2020 Ram 1500 Tradesman Quad Cab 4×2 model, powered by the new EcoDiesel will start at $49,395 plus the destination charge of $1,895.
While EPA ratings have yet to be released, we have been able to share all of the details about what makes the third-generation EcoDiesel so new. But, be sure to check back on Tuesday for our full driving impressions on Ram’s latest powertrain offering.
