The 2014 Ram 1500 continues the brand’s quest of re-defining the half-ton full-size pickup class with the introduction of an exclusive small displacement turbo diesel engine that delivers a best-in-class combination of torque and fuel efficiency.
Aptly branded EcoDiesel, the new 3.0-liter powerplant is a turbocharged 60-degree, dual overhead camshaft (DOHC) 24-valve V-6 that produces 240 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque ¬is noticeably more efficient than all V-6 gasoline engines in the half-ton category.
Like the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 and 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 gasoline engines already offered on the Ram 1500, the new EcoDiesel V-6 will be mated to the TorqueFlite 8, the only eight-speed automatic transmission offered in the half-ton class.
The new EcoDiesel – developed and manufactured by VM Motor (a Chrysler supplier since 1992) – is one of the most advanced diesel engines in the marketplace. Equipped with a diesel oxidation catalyst, diesel particulate filter, and selective catalytic reduction, it will be emissions-compliant in all 50 states.
The new Ram 1500 also is equipped with a capless fuel filler system for re-filling convenience.
The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine (Ward’s 10 Best Engines Award three years in a row) with variable-valve timing (VVT) offers 305 horsepower, 269 lb.-ft. of torque and best-in-class fuel economy for V-6 engine trucks. The Pentastar V-6 features 42 percent more horsepower, 13 percent more torque and at least 20 percent better fuel economy when compared to the previous 3.7-liter V-6 powertrain. The legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 with fuel-saving cylinder shut-off and VVT provides 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque.
The class-exclusive eight-speed automatic transmission (TorqueFlite 8), standard equipment with 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel and 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar, doubles the amount of gears compared to the previously available four-speed automatic transmission, which improves drivability and enhances fuel efficiency. The eight-speed also is available with the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8.
When the 2014 Ram 1500 full-size pickup arrives in retail outlets the fourth quarter of calendar year 2013, it will establish what is unmistakably the most advanced and efficient powertrain portfolio in the light-duty category, as evidenced by:
USB iPod connectivity will remain standard on all 2014 Ram 1500s, but Ram marketers have an opportunity to maintain competitive parity by also making Bluetooth hands-free phone linking standard across the board. For 2013, this aid to driver safety was standard starting with Ram’s Big Horn/Lone Star models and was optional on the Tradesman, Express, HFE and SLT.
The same marketing largess ought to be applied to the 2014 Ram 1500’s navigation system. For 2013 it was unavailable on Tradesman, Express, HFE and SLT Rams while offered as standard or optional on all other trims.
Otherwise, the 2014 Ram 1500 should again be available with a wealth of features and amenities of appeal to work-truck buyers, luxury-pickup sybarites, and most everyone in between.
Expect leather upholstery to remain optional on 2014 Ram 1500 Sport models and standard on the Laramies. It’ll include rich contrast stitching on the Laramie Limited. Heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel will also return as Laramie-series standards. The Laramies will also have interior ambient lighting and power adjustable pedals; the latter will likely be a Sport-model option.
Chrysler Group’s Uconnect multimedia control center will return with its customizable touchscreens and voice command of audio, navigation, climate, and other systems. Uconnect also integrates smartphones to access apps and can display and respond to text messages. Available audio systems should again include a premium 10-speaker setup with a subwoofer and 12-channel amplifier.
A power-sliding rear-cab window will probably again be standard on Quad and Crew Cabs starting at the SLT trim. Power heated mirrors should again be optional on Tradesman and Express and standard on other 2014 Ram 1500s.
A tilt steering wheel, air conditioning, and automatic headlamps ought to return as standard across the board. Rear parking assist, power memory seats, remote engine start, and an integrated remote garage and gate opener also well be standard or optional depending on model.
The 2014 Ram will feature a plethora of safety features. As for airbags, there are plenty of them: two front air bags, front and rear curtain air bags, and pelvic thorax air bags.
It also features seat-belt pretensioners, which keep you in your seat during an accident, standard electronic stability control, trailer sway control, and anti-lock brakes.
The Ram will feature an optional “Enter ’n Go” keyless entry system which unlocks the doors and starts the engine without any more action than waling up to the truck. The remote keyless entry system has also been expanded to work for the RamBox storage system and the tailgate lock, so one press of a button locks the entire truck down.
Also available on the 2014 Ram 1500 will be automatic rain-sensing wipers.
