At the Detroit Auto Show today, Ram Truck announced some big news with its new 1500 Rebel, but what may have gotten lost in the shuffle is that it squeezed a little more fuel efficiency on its EcoDiesel Ram to further extend its fuel-efficiency lead in the half-ton truck market.
The Ram 2500 Outdoorsman concept truck shows just how capable, and functional, a 2500 can be for off-roaders and hunters when outfitted with Mopar and aftermarket parts. Ram says this truck was inspired by its relationship with outdoors outfitter Mossy Oak who helped created the truck’s unique color that’s aptly called “Swamp Thing Green,” which features a blend of camouflage details incorporated into the hood, roof and lower body of the truck.
Line-X has already enjoyed tremendous success as a franchiser of high-performance spray-on bedliners, but this week at the SEMA Show, the company announced that is expanding its Truck Gear line of aftermarket parts in a unique fashion that stays true to the company’s roots.
In another departure from the status quo in major league off-road racing, SCORE has invaded the 2014 SEMA Show in a big way, creating hype for its crowning event, the 2014 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, which gets underway 413 miles away, in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, next weekend.
Auburn Hills, Mich. – In anticipation of the 2014 edition of the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show, Mopar released sketches of its modified Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, and Fiat vehicles headed for the premier aftermarket tradeshow in Las Vegas. It’s not clear from the images exactly what modifications will be featured on each vehicle, but we do know there will be two Jeep Renegades (Frostbite and Rip Tied) and a Ram 2500 Outdoorsman truck.
Auburn Hills, Mich. – The 2015 Ram 1500 is America’s most fuel-efficient pickup truck with its exclusive 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel that packs 240 horsepower, 420 lb.-ft. of torque and 28 miles per gallon (mpg). Fuel economy and the exclusivity of the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is being credited for Ram’s decision to increase the diesel powertrain mix to 20 percent of the total Ram 1500 production volume — double the initial expectation.
When the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel opened for orders earlier this year, Ram Truck received more than 8,000 requests within three days, which quickly filled the initial allocation for the exclusive powertrain.

Ram 3500 models will offer increased torque ratings of 865 lb.-ft. and an increased payload of 7,390 pounds, while maintaining a class leading maximum tow rating of 30,000 pounds.
