I'm curious if anyone is going to be getting the RAM 1500 Diesel strictly because of the "coolness factor" and not really needing it to do any light duty? In my case I don't have a toy hauler or need to haul anything around for work. I just like the 1500 because it's bad arse. The largest thing I will be hauling around is my dog and maybe some new furniture :)

Buying for utility, being able to carry stuff and fuel economy.. Hopefully not hauling air all the time but I am planning on a fixer upper job in my basment later this year.

Not to mention bad ass looking truck!

Here I am bringing up a year old post!!! *ashamed* forgot I was using the search option!!

Just for the simple reason of buying it and lifting it 6in, and just riding it. Will not be anything but the fuel economy only and the coolness factor.

Bought mine for the fuel efficiency. Just so happened the half ton diesel's came out the year I was planning on buying new. I travel all over the state for work, and needed a truck in the household. Besides a couple dirtbikes in the back on the weekends, I don't have anything to haul/pull.

New member here...been a Chrysler guy forever, kept a close eye on the ecodiesel due to needing to tow a boat regularly and my jeep was really kicking me in the nuts in terms of fuel economy plus daily 60 mile commute to work.
Holly crap was I impressed when the f250 guy stopped me at the traffic light and couldn't believe how cool it was to have a half-ton diesel. He had never heard of it.

The ultimate cool factor is when the tundra guy at work wanted to go get one....

So to answer the OP, I bought it for commute and weekend towing and got the cool factor as an added upgrade!!!

I had a 2013 hemi and loved the truck but the mpg were less then great. So I got pretty much the same truck with a diesel engine.

Sold my lifted jeep on 35's that averaged 20-24 l/100km (12-14mpg). I was fed up with getting into the Jeep every time and planning my next fuel stop. My Ram ED is mostly a DD and often times it'll be used to haul tools when I need to work on my semi or trailers. Got it 2 days ago and have only put 50kms on her. Can't wait to go for a ride
