The new EcoDiesel - evolved and synthetic through VM Motor (a Chrysler provider due to the fact that 1992) - is one of the maximum superior diesel engines withinside the marketplace. Equipped with a diesel oxidation catalyst, diesel particulate filter, and selective catalytic reduction, it will likely be emissions-compliant in all 50 states.The new Ram 1500 is also prepared with a capless gasoline filler machine for re-filling convenience.The 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine (Ward's 10 Best Engines Award 3 years in a row) with variable-valve timing (VVT) gives 305 horsepower, 269 lb.-ft. of torque and best-in-elegance gasoline financial system for V-6 engine vehicles. The Pentastar V-6 capabilities forty two percentage greater horsepower, thirteen percentage greater torque and at the least 20 percentage higher gasoline financial system whilst in comparison to the preceding 3.7-liter V-6 powertrain. The mythical five.7-liter HEMI V-eight with gasoline-saving cylinder shut-off and VVT offers 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque.

The elegance-distinctive eight-pace computerized transmission (TorqueFlite eight), popular gadget with 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel and 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar, doubles the quantity of gears in comparison to the formerly to be had 4-pace computerized transmission, which improves drivability and complements gasoline performance. The eight-pace is also to be had with the five.7-liter HEMI V-eight.

When the 2014 Ram 1500 huge pickup arrives in stores the fourth zone of calendar yr 2013, it'll set up what's unmistakably the maximum superior and green powertrain portfolio withinside the light-responsibility category, as evidenced through: Exclusive supplying of a small-displacement rapid diesel engine (EcoDiesel V-6) Exclusive supplying of an eight-pace computerized transmission (8HP45 with Pentastar V-6, 8HP70 with HEMI V-eight and EcoDiesel V-6) Unsurpassed torque Best-in-Class V-6 fuel engine gasoline performance (Pentastar V-6) Best-in-Class aggregate of electricity and gasoline performance in a V-eight engine (HEMI V-eight mated with eight-pace transmission) Only producer in light-responsibility elegance to provide diesel, fuel, and flex-gasoline (E85 succesful 3.6-liter V-6) engines
ENGINEERING Beginning in version yr 2014, the Ram 1500 will provide a the front park help machine, a primary time supplying on a huge Ram pickup truck.The machine makes use of 4 sensors placed at the the front bumper. The bezel-much less, incorporated sensors sequentially ship out ultrasonic waves whilst the car is pushed in ahead at low speeds. The machine can stumble on gadgets as some distance away as 47.2 inches. The sending sensor and adjoining sensors select out up the echo of a sign whilst it bounces off an item. Triangulation is used to decide relative distance, primarily based totally on elapsed time among the outgoing sign and its return.Readouts placed withinside the cluster display (and audible chimes) notify the driving force of the front/rear item proximity.Pulse-width modulation (PWM) is a gasoline-saving generation for the Ram 1500, which reduces parasitic electric load. The generation now no longer simplest gets rid of pointless load at the alternator however additionally improves the sturdiness of benefitting structures. Fuel transport and the ahead cooling fan are structures that take benefit of PWM, including a 0.four percentage development in gasoline performance.The 2014 Ram 1500 will convey extra makes use of of PWM generation and a number of recent performance, consolation and emissions-pleasant refinements. These consist of a variable displacement air-conditioning compressor pulse-width modulated vent blower and humidity sensor.As against a "fixed" displacement compressor, the variable displacement compressor (VDC) robotically varies its pumping ability to fulfill aircon needs as opposed to operating in an on/off fashion. As a end result, the variable displacement compressor (VDC) lessens masses at the engine, decreasing parasitic losses for more advantageous gasoline performance and supporting to preserve a regular cockpit temperature. The generation additionally reduces associated noise and vibration annoyances.
When the indoors cabin temperature is better than what is favored (out of doors the automated temperature manage setting), the VDC will increase refrigeration ability till the favored temperature is reached. Once the temperature is reached, the VDC robotically reduces its ability to preserve the favored temperature as opposed to shutting off completely.The common end result is smoother compressor transitions, much less noise and more gasoline performance.Like the VDC, the pulse-width modulation (PWM) blower constantly controls fan speeds for ideal overall performance in all riding scenarios; quiet, green operation; and absolutely unnoticeable overall performance.
Not in contrast to different PWM packages that debuted at the 2013 Ram 1500, the pulse-width blower guarantees an endless quantity of various fan speeds to fulfill each client-asked situation in terms of the aircon machine.The new humidity sensor is packaged at the back of the rearview mirror, and works in tandem with the PWM blower and VDC to constantly degree the capacity for humidity being fashioned at the windshield indoors. While the sensor permits substantive de-fogging advantages, it additionally permits the VDC and PWM blower to run on the maximum ideal speeds to expedite humidity reduction.
