Unlike its competitors that recently started to offer diesel engines in their light-duty truck, this one has been around for years. As you may know, the new generation of the famous truck series is on its way and a diesel version will be included in this redesign process as well. We expect to see a lot of improvement compared to the outgoing model. The new 2019 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is about to come with significant chassis improvements, as well as with the new, more efficient engine which will be both more powerful and more economic.

In terms of base design characteristics, the new model will come with a lot of improvement. The 2019 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel specs will be characterized by significant weight reduction. Also, the 2019 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel towing capacity should be better for a lot as well. The new generation of the famous truck has been presented already and it comes with plenty of modifications. The new model gets a completely new chassis, which is mostly made of aluminum. For example, a crew-cab version should be for about 210 pounds lighter. That will definitely have a great impact on overall efficiency.
In terms of styling, there is a lot of improvement as well. This was probably the weakest point of the previous generation, which simply looked a little bit outdated. This time, it won’t be the case. The 2019 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel will get the trucks newest design language, which is characterized by significant improvement. The overall shape and proportions might be similar, but the new front end comes with a completely new design of the grille, headlights, bumper and other parts. The overall impression is that the new model looks far more attractive. The interesting thing is that the company continues with a lot of chrome elements.

We used on to see a truck that features a cabin that looks like a passenger car but 2019 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel will bring the things on. In some aspects, this cabin will look like it comes from some premium car. There is a lot of hi-quality materials, while the lines are very smooth, without those rugged shapes and non-appealing elements. The list of standard equipment is about to be pretty long. Some of the highlights should be things like a new, huge 12-inch touchscreen, in which the company will install the latest infotainment system. Of course, this one will find its place in top trim levels, while base models will probably feature those smaller 8-inch screens. Also, expect to see other gadgety things, as well as a lot of advanced safety and driver’s assist systems.
