Ram has unveiled a brand new version of the Diesel Ram 1500 at the Detroit Auto Show. This Ram 1500 HFE (high Fuel Efficiency) is an even more fuel efficiet version of the truck that we have all come to love, and it will arrive in showrooms in the first quarter of 2015.
So what is the big difference between the current model and the HFE? The current model is rated at 29 mpg highway. The HFE brings that up to 29 mpg using the same 3-liter V6 turbo diesel engine that is standard in the Ecodiesel. That is just 1 mpg of increased fuel efficiency, but that makes a big difference over time.
Ram Trucks chief exec officer Bob Hegbloom added: “Fuel efficiency is at the top of truck buyers’ priorities and Ram is the recognized benchmark for the industry. Twenty-nine miles per gallon cuts through the clutter. Ram invested in powertrain technologies and those are paying real dividends in the wallets of our customers.”
