2015 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is part of this popular truck line up and it comes with several updates for the new model year, including better fuel efficiency and new badges. This division announced that their pickup is the most fuel efficient one among all vehicles in its class. New model also has some changes in the exterior and the interior segment and it is very competitive, since Ford still doesn’t have diesel F Series truck in its range. There are also no hybrid versions that can compete with this diesel fueled beast, which leaves HFE EcoDiesel on the top of the fuel economy chain in the United States.
2015 RAM 1500 Ecodiesel Exterior and Interior Design
On the outside this truck comes with some really useful features, one of them being the side steps that go all the way of the trucks’s wheel base and they also have another function, to smooth under body turbulence. RAM 1500 Ecodiesel 2015 rolls on 20 inch alloy wheels and it is available with Workman body plastics and body colored nosework. As part of the body plastic we mentioned, there is a highly firm plastic bumper, with a very gracious and elegant shape. When it comes to the front side of this vehicle, we can notice the recognizable chrome grille that comes with powerful looking RAM badge. Everybody knows that the grille is one of the main design features of RAM trucks, and diesel version is not at all different. New model also comes with an additional HFE badge, that is one of this year’s updates.
Inside the cabin RAM 1500 Ecodiesel 2015 is looks quite plain, like any other pickup truck base version. It comes with cloth upholstery and simple air conditioning. Dashboard is made in combination of a lot off hard plastics and some soft touch materials and the tapestry inside the vehicle is plain and simple. This model has only one trim level so there’s not going to be some high luxury diesel trucks like Laramie Longhorn edition or something like that. Maybe RAM decides to introduce some of these models, but after seeing the big drop on oil prices it is much more possible that they would discontinue even the base diesel version.
