When it was announced in early November that Green Car Journal named the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel as "America’s most fuel efficient pickup," fans of Ram trucks commented online with their own kudos about this super motor that deserves this "2015 Green Truck of the Year" honor. In fact, local Ram dealerships have been singing the praises of this truck for years; while the recent 46th annual San Antonio Auto & Truck Show also crowed the Ram 1500 as "a great pickup" that just happens to be green. Overall, it is already the year of the Ram 1500 model for 2015, and it is still 2014, say truck fans.

According to Bob Hegbloom, president and CEO of the Ram truck brand, he called the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel an "incredible success" in a press release after detailing how long his company has worked to design and engineer "the best trucks you can buy with fuel economy and capability top of mind."

Ram trucks built tough, and green

While the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel now takes its place as a top "green machine" in the U.S. truck market, the people who enjoy driving Ram trucks say they cannot hardly wait until they can "purchase one of these babies" from their local Ram truck dealership. For instance, the Green Car Journal automotive experts credited this Eco-diesel-powered Ram 1500 with having a super 28-mpg rating after earning this top rating from the highly regarded U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In turn, the EPA experts studied the Ram 1500 performance - as a true "green vehicle" and EcoDiesel motor – and decided to award this Ram truck "the best highway-cycle test result ever achieved by a full-size, half-ton pickup."

Ram 1500 EcoDiesel top ranked small pickup

While being named the "Green Truck of the Year" is one thing that Ram fans can celebrate, there is other kudos for this super truck including:

  • A true "green" small pickup that exceeds the EPA highway rating for being the "the top-ranked small pickup;" while the previous half-ton fuel efficiency record was also set by the Ram 1500 with a V-6 gas engine. The Ram 1500 is now credited with achieving two top awards from the EPA, and that says something in this environmentally green conscious automobile and truck manufacturing culture, say auto experts.
  • A top of the line truck with an "impressive EcoDiesel engine," and a dazzling array of special features, such as active grill shutters and aero suspension.
  • A small pickup with all the best features of a large truck, including its "beefy torque" and the EPA report card for having all the environmental performance wanted by drivers desiring a full-size and really stylish pickup that never lets you down.
  • A great driving pickup truck that is viewed as "one of the most recognizable vehicles on the road today" because it is "so fine and drives like a dream," commented a Ram truck fan online.

In general, the main reasons why the Ram EcoDiesel earned such an outstanding rating by green vehicle experts is because it is simply "the best-in-class" when it comes to fuel efficiency and "unsurpassed torque and an impressive surplus of real towing capability."

Ram EcoDiesel brand the best of the best

When it comes to fuel economy and great towing capacity, it is this 2015 Ram EcoDiesel that waters the eyes of truck fans from far and wide. In fact, there are so many glowing testimonials online bout this model Ram 1500 that the experts at Green Car Journal said they were literally blown away after testing this truck’s performance on the road; while also checking its high fuel efficiency, low emissions, numerous advanced technology systems and much more.

Overall, there is no better "green" truck on America’s roadways than this hard-working Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, say both experts and truck fans.
