    As for that 3rd Generation thing, seem to remember there was an Ecodiesel that came out in the Jeep before the 1500 Ram. It used a slightly different oil filter and I think it had slightly different specs in output. Not sure there. Just guessing that could maybe be the first generation. If so than the 2020 would be the third.
    MY 2013-2016 is gen 1, 2017-2018 is gen 2. That's my understanding. Corrections are more than welcome.

    With that towability, (?) a fifth wheel option would make sense.

    My 2002 Ex 7.3 PSD has a factory rating of 12,500...with more than double the displacement and 1/2 the transmission gears! These specs are very impressive, suspect they could easily hit 500TQ depending on Chevy's 're-flash' post launch.

    May actually consider in 2021 or 2022 OR when my current rig hits 350k which ever comes first. Clearly FCA is the best thing to happen to Mopar in decades...the SRT cars rock too.

    Given the current max tow rating is a quad cab 4x2 hemi etorque with super 60 rear axle rated at 12,750 towing and 1830 payload I assume the same configuration is required for the 12,560 rating with the ecodiesel?

    That gives us a ballpark for weight as well, +200 over hemi etorque, +300 over standard hemi so find a similarly equirped 2019 door jamb sticker and subtract accordingly. Standard trucks (non max tow) with 3.92s will probably be rated at just over 11k so that's pretty good.

    Will monitor this and maybe in 2 years when the 15 is paid off, will definitely have a look.

    On that last comment I made a call to a salesman at my dealer. Clueless. That dealership was clueless about the new offering and any timetable. He looked up TFL truck and was watching the video while we talked.

    The dealer will call me when they hear they can take an order. We'll see.

    Looks like they did a lot of changes throughout. New revised block, improved heads, fuel injection system, piston cooling, piston pin geometry, split EGR, improved turbo, etc. Hopefully the new block will correct the bottom end issues with the 14,15 models. What the news today doesn't say but I believe we'll also see on the new ECO is it will probably have the new e-torque mild hybrid system standard and may also have exhaust braking. I'm not sold on the e-torque but from what I've seen on the hemi stuff is it improves off the line torque & acceleration, hopefully this will eliminate the dead petal turbo lag from idle that you had to do a GDE tune to overcome on the first gen ECO's.

    I'm hoping the new Eco will break the 30 MPG mark from the factory. I've been waiting months to order an ECO in the new body style. I'll be ordering one the first day the orders open up.

    Will definitely be keeping my eye out... probably give it a year or two unless something changes. Exciting news!

    480 ft-lbs of torque at 1600 rpm for 2020 Ecodiesel.

    This according to Car and Driver. Here’s the link:
