Ram 1500 Reviews

2015 1500
Swift Current and Saskatoon drivers can find class-exclusive performance and convenience, and the 2015 Ram 1500 reviews back it up as the premier model in the light-trucking segment. Outshining vehicles like the 2015 Ford F-150, 2015 Chevrolet Silverado, and the 2015 Toyota Tundra with exclusive engines options, storage facilities, and onboard entertainment, the new Ram 1500 towers above the so-called competition.

Engine Options

The 2015 Ram 1500 reviews attest that it is the only light truck to offer a diesel engine, allowing Swift Current and Saskatoon residents to drive cleaner on less fuel. Sacrificing nothing in the way of power the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine produces an exceptional output of 420 lb-ft of torque – more power than you’ll receive from the 2015 F-150, 2015 Silverado, or the 2015 Tundra.

Using cutting-edge technology such as a selective catalyst-reduction system with diesel exhaust fuel, this state-of-the-art powerhouse is more environmentally friendly than a standard gas engine, and demands very little in the way of routine maintenance work.

Fuel Economy

The 3.0L EcoDiesel doesn’t just provide lowered emissions — it also makes the 2015 Ram 1500 the most fuel-efficient pickup in the country, with lower consumption rates than the new F-150, Silverado, and Tundra:

  • F-150 Peak Efficiency: Ford’s 2.7L EcoBoost V6 provides only 12.1 L/100 km in the city and 9.2 L/100 km on the highway.
  • Silverado Peak Efficiency: Chevrolet’s gas-guzzling 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 supplies 13.4 L/100 km in the city and 9.9 L/100 km on the highway.
  • Tundra Peak Efficiency: Toyota’s 4.6L i-FORCE can pump out only 15.9 L/100 km in the city and 12.3 L/100 km on the highway.
  • Ram Peak Efficiency: Surpassing them all, the new Ram 1500’s fuel-sipping 3.0 EcoDiesel V6 gets 11.6 L/100 km in the city, and 8.4 L/100 km on the highway.
