This is a great video to get better acquainted with the new EcoDiesel engine. The guy in the video does a good job of giving you technical details but also telling you what those technical details mean for you when you are driving the Ram 1500.

I say its worth the watch.

Around 4:30 he's talking about towing/payload and it'll pay back much sooner. But I've seen some discussion that dodge/ram says if you tow a lot, get a hemi.

Am I missing something?

I know what you're talking about. RAM said HEAVY towing. As in up near the GWVR limits. But for stuff well within the range go for it no worries...

I also think thats a way of them safeguarding against any failures...

I think the HEMI is a couple thousand pounds more capable than the EcoDiesel. So if you intend to tow right at the EcoDiesels limit, RAM suggests jumping to the hemi for a bit more cushion.

the truck will tow fine, mechanically the frame, suspension and brakes can take it but I think fuel mileage is more what they are worried about....

would look awfulyl poor if they claim the diesel is mileage freindly and then everyone starts towing and their mileage craters...
