Luckily, your options aren’t limited and we see a wide range of diesel trucks drive onto our lot. We want to use this blog to inform drivers in and around Epsom, NH what their options are when purchasing a diesel pickup.
Ram is no stranger to powerful vehicles and their diesel lineup is no exception. The surprisingly sporty Ram 1500 EcoDiesel offers an innovative 3-liter V6 engine with a block made of compacted graphite iron, featuring aluminum twin-cam heads. The B20 biodiesel capability and standard Active Grille Shutters allow this engine to put out 12,560-lb max towing and 2,040-lb max payload with surprising fuel economy and rugged reliability. That means your efficient, half-ton pickup can tow your camper and handle daily tasks at work.
The Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 heavy duty pickups also have diesel options that put out even more power and higher performance than the 1500. If your truck will consistently be towing and hauling heavy loads we recommend looking into these trucks.
