Clean Diesel Power For Half-Ton Ram Pick-Up Trucks A Valentine's Day Gift For Diesel Lovers

"This has already been an amazing year for the growth of clean diesel vehicles in the U.S. and it just keeps getting more remarkable. And this is just the middle of February."

Allen Schaeffer, Executive Director, Diesel Technology Forum

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Ram Truck's announcement today that it will introduce a 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel pickup truck in the United States is launching a new period of expansion for clean diesel light duty trucks in North America, said Allen Schaeffer, the Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum.

"The new 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel truck makes a bold statement about the future for modern clean diesel technology in the highly popular half-ton line of trucks," Schaeffer said.  "There is no doubt that the torque, range and fuel-efficiency from the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel engine will be extremely popular in the U.S. light duty truck market.

"Diesel power has always had a strong and loyal following among truck owners due to its numerous advantages over gasoline and other fuel sources and the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will expand this growth into the light duty sector.

"We've already seen Audi announce its expansion with four new clean diesels for the U.S. this year along with Volkswagen demonstrating its diesel/plug-in hybrid CrossBlue S.U.V. concept car.

"Mazda has announced it will become the only Asian automaker with a clean diesel car in the U.S. when it launches its award-winning SKYACTIV-D diesel technology in its 2014 Mazda 6.
