Great article.

At last, the 2014 Ram 1500EcoDieselhas been priced, and soon it’ll be time for truck enthusiasts to put their money where their mouths are. The half-ton diesel truck will carry a base price of $30,180 for a rear-drive, long-wheelbase truck with an eight-foot bed. The EcoDiesel’s price represents a $2850 premium over a similarly equipped 2014 Ram 1500 with the 5.7-liter V-8, Ram says.
And for 2014, the Ram 1500′s 5.7-liter V-8 produces 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. Even though the V-8 will be offered with an eight-speed automatic, the truck’s fuel economy will be no match for the 1500 EcoDiesel. The new Ram model has a 3.0-liter turbodiesel six-cylinder under the hood with 240 hp and 420 lb-ft, and also uses an eight-speed automatic.

A diesel-powered truck isn’t for everyone. While the EcoDiesel may excel at traversing long distances without stopping for fuel and delivering best-in-class EPA-rated fuel economy, some would simply rather have 395 hp ready to respond at every stoplight.
We want to hear from you: Would you be willing to pay a $2850 premium for a2014 Ram 1500EcoDiesel over a 1500 with the 5.7-liter V-8 and an eight-speed automatic?
