We already knew the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was a hit, but the most impressive stat is that it can travel over 1,000 miles on a single tank.
Powered by a 3.0-liter, turbocharged V-6 that's now in its third generation, the EcoDiesel is drastically improved for 2020. Highway mileage is up by five mpg over the old model, and torque figures are also on the rise to give it the most twist of any truck in its class with 480 pound-feet. That results in a top-spec towing capacity of 12,560 pounds, another benchmark for the half-ton diesel category. This is thanks in part to a few hardware upgrades to the engine including a new variable geometry turbo and redesigned intake ports, among others.
