2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: 30,000 Miles
April 24, 2015
We try to make sure that all of our long-termers hit at least 20,000 miles during their year with us. Clearly our Ram 1500 is a popular vehicle, as it just crossed the 30,000-mile mark. In that time it's delivered an overall mileage number of 22.5 mpg, just above its EPA combined rating of 22 mpg. That's a rare feat for any of our long-term cars, especially one that has been used for towing, hauling and various road trip duties over the last year.
Other than one unexpectedly long service and a little more DEF fluid than we anticipated, the Ram 1500 has performed admirably. Almost every editor finds it comfortable, easy to drive and chock full of useful features. Our new F-150 will have a tough time proving that it's a better option.
