There is a lot of rumor aka bad news circulating around the web, and here on our site, that the production schedule for the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel has been delayed and pushed back until May. According to Donlen.com the production of the RAM 1500 3.0L V6 Turbo Diesel Engine (EXF) isn't scheduled for production until 5/1/2014, but before throwing your hands up in disgust and cursing out the RAM division for yet another delay we can tell you this is incorrect. Was the Donlen report way off? Well, yes and no. There was a mix up and a huge misprint. What is happening is that RAM is also releasing the EcoDiesel in their Promaster Van's and that truck is scheduled for production in May not the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel.
Everyone breathe a sigh of relief. The 1500 ED's are sitting in Quality Containment right now and will be released in waves in early to mid March. Those of you who have put in your orders can still expect to receive them on time. There you have it folks. The rumor that caused a wave of anxiety was none other than a huge mistake. Ok really huge mistake--ok massive mistake. The RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is on schedule!
