Decide if the new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel can meet your needs, and then head to Crestview Chrysler in Regina, SK to check it out in person.

Powertrain Options

The 2014 Ram 1500 comes with three different powertrain options, including the EcoDiesel engine, a revolutionary piece of engineering, and the only diesel engine currently available in a light-duty truck.

  • 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6: 240 hp, 420 lb-ft of torque, up to 10.2 L/100 km city and 7.1 L/100 km highway
  • 3.6L Pentastar VVT V-6: 305 hp, 269 lb-ft of torque, up to 11.4 L/100 km city and 7.8 L/100 km highway

Towing Capacity

The specs of the 2014 Ram 1500 give it a towing capacity of up to 10,450 pounds when properly equipped — plenty to tow a boat, a piece of heavy equipment, or a camper. Plus, thanks to features like an available rearview camera and an electronic stability control system with trailer sway control, it is easier than ever to manage huge loads.

Payload Capacity

The maximum payload is 1,930 pounds when properly equipped, which gives you lots of options when you need to haul a lot of gear, carry away a pile of debris, or load your truck up with materials for a landscaping project.

The first, 4-HI, locks both drive shafts to give you extra grip and traction, perfect for when you are on loose terrain or going around sharp curves. The second, 4-LO, switches the gear reduction ratio to 2.72:1 to maximize your pulling power.
