VM Motori manufactures the Diesel engine used in our trucks. I found this blurb interesting. We are in good company.

The first applications of the A 630 DOHC were the 2014 Grand Cherokee and the 2014 Ram Eco-Diesel, the same engine lightly tuned powers also the Maserati Ghibli III. The engine won several awards including a slot in the top 10 best engines of 2014.[11][12]

Thought the one in the Maserati was "highly tuned" for speed in that car.

Think they were also used in some vehicles in Australia and England also. No matter. They have been around and tested for a few years in different applications.

The little VM is a great little engine.
The A630DOHC is the EU version. It is used in the EU Jeep GC, Chrysler 300, Lancia Thema, Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte.
The L630DOHC is the NAFTA version. The RAM 1500 has the L630DOHC.

I'm looking forward to putting about 300,000 miles on mine.
