In fuel-economy face-off, Ram sets a new bar to top, Wall Street Journal, Feb. 5
o There's a new target to beat in the large pickup truck fuel-economy wars: The Chrysler Group said its Ram 1500 EcoDiesel truck has earned a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-estimated rating of 28 miles a gallon in highway driving, setting a new bar to top for truck brands, especially Ford Motor Co.'s lightweight, aluminum-bodied F-150 due out later this year, the Wall Street Journal said. Chrysler took the highway fuel-economy crown more than a year ago with the roll-out of a new gasoline-powered Ram 1500 that, when equipped with a V6 engine and eight-speed transmission, gets 25 mpg highway, the Journal said. The new Ram diesel goes on sale this month - it will be the first light-duty diesel truck to hit the market in nearly 15 years, the Journal said.
