Not only are there 3 diesel engines that made Ward's list in 2014, but one of them is in a truck! That is of course why you are reading these words on this site. The 3.0L EcoDiesel that is fitted in the Ram 1500 has made list of the top 10 engines in 2014. This is no small feat as some of the contenders on the list UNDER the 3.0L EcoDiesel have given names like Cayman, and Stingray. Seems only fitting that there is a Ram in the list of animals on the top 10 list.
That sort of praise is nothing to shake a stick at. The testers are not only driving trucks and cars that normal people get to drive, but they are also testing the cream of the crop from the top auto makers around the globe. Topping the charts of the list was the supercharged 3.0L engine that lives at the heart of the S4 and S5 from Audi. Serious machinery there. The Ram EcoDiesel lands at number 3 on the list just behind the force fed 3.0L diesel situated in the BMW 535d. Two premium German auto makers, and then the Ram. Guess Daddy Fiat is really doing some good things with the Ram.Sourced from FIAT-owned VM Motori and also mated to an 8-speed automatic, the Ram's torquey diesel has no trouble motivating a 3-ton pickup truck while managing up to 24 mpg combined during Ward’s test drives
