2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Good-Looking Gauges

August 29, 2014

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250

Of the Big Truck Trio, the Silverado gauges have a cool and techy design touch, with the large speedometer and tach buttressing a bridge of four octagonal secondary gauges. Nice modern theme, with a splash of Corvette. The new F-150 forgoes analog secondary gauges altogether for a full-blown customizable 8-inch digital display anchoring speedo and tach and lightsaber-like needles.

But I think I prefer our 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel gauges for the cleaner, classic look and the real estate afforded the 7-inch multifunction display. The fuel and diesel exhaust fluid inset gauges are a cool touch, and the scrolling menu icons that determine the center display content make nice use of otherwise dead space above the 1500's 4,800-rpm redline.

The hashes remind me of the Dart though, which is unfortunate.
