I forecasted this 3 Years ago, for those that heated the warning 👍 For those that bought 2019-2020+ will likely suffer $$$$ in loses. It still will be available in Jeeps but that will likely end in 2024.

Fiat has just destroyed the 1500 DSL Market. Back in 2015 Fiat should have stop production and corrected all the short comings this engine had, In 2017 when production stopped due to the EPAs mandate Fiat had 1.5 Years to upgrade the plant at Cento and make changes to the rotating mass design. Nope just produce the same high rate of failure design. 2020+ fail at close to the same Rate, although the production rate is 1/3 of 2014-16.

I noticed the rumors online a few days ago but was hesitate to post, simply because the said the trucks only. I'm not sure why they are removing the option from the trucks only...and keeping it in the Jeeps.

Either way, sad day but we all know it was likely coming. The EcoDiesel just has to many problems when you compare it to other platforms.

Boostn, I'm so disappointed in How Fiat handle this.......It will be a wound that will likely never heal.... Again, I want to thank You for allowing this website to develop.... You might want to change the name, I have plenty of other vehicles, I would enjoy discussing here.

On the other hand all those Mods at 1500diesel.com, except Crash68 are eating crow today. 🥘 :) :) :) :)

Ram isn't dropping the EcoDiesel because it has problems. The 3rd gen engine has very few problems and has proven to be a reliable platform. The CEO of Ram said they are pushing up electrification in the Ram 1500, which is why the EcoDiesel is being dropped. The full electrification isn't ready for the Wrangler/Gladiator platform, which is why the EcoDiesel will continue to be offered.
