2014 Ram 1500 in Lawrence, KS
There are a lot of trucks on the market that claim to be the best, but the 2014 Ram 1500 in Lawrence, KS has the awards to prove it. It was recently chosen as Motor Trend Truck of the Year for the second consecutive year.
The award stems from the fact that the 2014 Ram 1500 is one of the most versatile light-duty pickups available. There are nine different trims, all of which provide the choice of five different cab and box sizes, allowing the pickup to cater to a variety of different lifestyles. Whether you need more space for seating, more room for hauling or a combination of the two, you can find exactly what you need in the affordable 2014 Ram 1500.
Those seeking out the Ram 1500 for its power can opt for the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that comes standard in many of the higher end trims. The V8 is capable of taking on a payload of over 1,300 pounds, and can tow up to 10,000 pounds. To top it all off, the powerful engine is capable of impressive efficiency as well. Even when firing on all eight cylinders, the V8 is able to travel up to 22 mpg on the highway.
2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Engine
The addition of the all-new 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine also played a big factor in the Ram 1500’s Truck of the Year award, as the engine is capable of best-in-class power and fuel economy ratings that are also bound to lead the segment.
The EcoDiesel engine will be the first diesel engine to be found under the hood of a light-duty pickup here in the states. Ram is taking a big risk as the first automaker to attempt it, but from the sound of it, the diesel engine will only find success. The V6 EcoDiesel is expected to produce up to 420 lb-ft of torque and 240 horsepower which will allow the diesel-equipped Ram 1500 to tow and haul weights that previously could only be done with a V8. Official fuel economy ratings have not been released yet, but according to Motor Trend, depending on the trim, the EcoDiesel will be able to achieve a highway fuel economy of up to 28 mpg, which is significantly higher than many of the gas-exclusive models in the segment.
