2014 Ram 1500

At Crestview Chrysler in Regina, we’re very pleased to announce that the 2014 Ram 1500 was awarded Motor Trend’s 2014 Truck of the Year®! For the first time in the history of this award, the same model won back-to-back, and for good reason. The new Ram 1500 is truly a product of innovation and taking bold risks, as this model pushes the boundaries of what a light-duty pickup truck is capable of. So why exactly did the 2014 Ram 1500 win Motor Trend’s 2014 Truck of the Year®?

Introducing EcoDiesel Performance

It’s been 15 long years since a manufacturer has outfitted a light-duty pickup with a diesel engine, but the 2014 Ram 1500 changed the game. The available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine is capable of 240 hp and a best-in-class 420 lb-ft of peak torque, enabling a 3,256 kg  towing capacity. If it could tow any more than that, the new Ram 1500 might as well classify itself as a heavy-duty truck.

Noteworthy Ram 1500 Features

  • Five-Link Coil Spring Suspension: Engineered with comfort and control in mind, this suspension system absorbs bumps and road impact regardless of the surface. The coil spring design is much lighter in order to reduce friction and help you retain optimum traction.
  • Incredible V6 Performance and Efficiency: The standard engine offered for the 2014 Ram 1500 is the award-winning 3.5L Pentastar v6 powertrain. Capable of 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, this engine delivers no shortage of power while still retaining high fuel economy numbers with an estimated 7.8L/100 km on the highway.
  • Best-In-Class V8 Horsepower and Fuel Economy: Drivers who are looking for the ultimate power in a light-duty truck will want to consider the available 5.7L Hemi V8. It puts out 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque and has a towing capacity of 4,740 kg. Best of all, it gets an estimated 9.2L/100 km on the highway when mated to the TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission.
