99 Dodge Ram 1500 Transmission
The New Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, currently the only half-ton truck sold in the USA with a turbo-diesel engine, is being delayed to buy due to a more extensive emissions evalution. Deliveries of the New Ram EcoDiesel will need to wait until Ram receives an EPA discharges accreditation. This is due to the investigation underway by the EPA. FCA is under examination for, purportedly, adding/creating software application to EcoDiesels which change emissions results under real-world driving conditions.
We talked with FCA/Ram and obtained the following declaration. “Need for this product [Ram EcoDiesel] continues to be strong. Autos have been generated and discharges accreditation is pending. New orders are not being approved up until emissions qualification is obtained.”—- FCA
While we wait on the results of the EPA investigation(s), we will continuously examine the previous year’s Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. Presently, The Fast Lane Truck is checking a 2016 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel for our New Gold Hitch Awards.
