2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Slow and Steady

by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor on January 21, 2016

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

Want to hyper-focus on the horrible slowness of your daily commute? The 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is here to help.  Thanks to the onboard drive computer, I know exactly how long it took me to slog through the Southern California freeway traffic.

Don't feel too badly, though. This 100-mile, five-hour drive was a round-trip, broken in half by a glorious eight-hour work day.

The upside: 22.3 mpg is right on the Ram's EPA combined rating of 22 mpg.

And if you can't be sitting on your own living room couch, the Ram's comfy front seat isn't a terrible option.
