THE INDUSTRY-EXCLUSIVE 2014 Ram 1500 3.0L ECODIESEL V6 ENGINE

Ram to Build Industry’s Only Light-duty Diesel Pickup 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel to deliver best-in-class fuel economy, a title already owned by the 2013 Ram 1500
-Clean diesel features low CO2 emissions and impressive V-6 capability
-Diesel engines praised for outstanding range and torque
-Ram first to market with game-changing technologies

February 14, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Beginning in third-quarter 2013, Ram will become the only brand to offer a small-displacement diesel for its half-ton line of trucks.

The 2014 Ram 1500 will offer a new, 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine, mated with the eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. The powertrain is expected to deliver an outstanding combination of best-in-class fuel efficiency, best-in-class torque and impressive capability.

“Truck owners have been emphatically asking for it, and Ram will be the only manufacturer to offer a diesel powertrain in the half-ton segment with the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Chrysler Group LLC. “The half-ton truck market is incredibly competitive, and although we’re honored the Ram 1500 has received a number of prestigious awards, we cannot rest on what we have accomplished, we must keep pushing.”

The 2013 Ram 1500 won Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year, The North American Truck of the Year and Truck of Texas — a rare trifecta in the pickup segment. Building on the award-winning truck, the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will further stretch its best-in-class fuel economy title lead and continue to raise the innovation bar in one of the automotive industry’s most customer-loyal segments.

“The Ram 1500 with 3.0-liter V-6 turbo EcoDiesel and TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission deliver on the demands of truckers by providing best-in-class torque, fuel economy and range. There’s no doubt that being the only truck manufacturer to offer this game changing technology will provide Ram with a competitive advantage.”

2014-ram-1500-ecodiesel-laramie-badges-photo-541408-s-520x318

The new 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel is among today’s most advanced diesel engines. Its emissions are 60 percent less than those produced by diesel powertrains 25 years ago. The impressive combination of torque and fuel economy marks new levels of performance for small V-6 engines.

Ram’s newest turbo diesel engine is manufactured by VM Motori, a Chrysler Group diesel engine supplier since 1992.

Over the past 10 months, the Ram Truck brand has set an aggressive product cadence. Ram’s big push began in April 2012 with the introduction of the Ram 1500 with class-leading 25 mpg fuel efficiency and innovative features such as Active Level four-corner air suspension.

2014-ram-1500-ecodiesel-laramie-photo-541413-s-520x318
The Ram Brand followed that news with the launch of the Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty pickups. Their 30,000-pound trailer-tow rating – more than three tons more than their closest competitor — and 850 lb.-ft. of torque are at the top of their class. Most recently, Ram introduced the new 2014 Ram ProMaster van with its own list of best-in-class features, including fuel efficiency, payload, cargo capacity and lowest cost of ownership.

About Ram Truck Brand
The Ram Truck brand continues to establish its own identity and clearly define its customer since its launch as a standalone vehicle brand. Creating a distinct brand for Ram trucks has allowed the brand to concentrate on how core customers use their trucks and what new features they’d like to see. Whether focusing on a family that uses its half-ton truck day in and day out, a hard-working Ram Heavy Duty owner or a business that depends on its commercial vehicles every day, Ram has the truck market covered.

Ram Truck has emerged as a full-size truck leader by investing substantially in new products, infusing them with great looks, refined interiors, durable engines and features that further enhance their capabilities.

Chrysler Group’s SRT Viper Wins NAHC Collectible Car Award

DETROIT, Feb. 19, 2014 – The National Automotive History Collection (NAHC) has selected the Chrysler Group’s SRT (Street and Racing Technology) Viper as its “Collectible Car of the Future.”

THE NATIONAL AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY COLLECTION SRT VIPER

NAHC members vote annually to name the “Collectible Car of the Future” from North American-built vehicles launched during the previous calendar year. The SRT Viper was selected from 19 all-new vehicles introduced in 2013.

“We ask our members to predict which of the year’s new vehicles will command the highest attention at Detroit’s famous Woodward Dream Cruise 25 years from now,” Charles K. Hyde, president of the NAHC Board of Trustees said.  “Car enthusiasts select this award, making it unique among vehicle-of-the-year awards.

IMG_20121126_110842

“Quite impressively this is the third time Viper has been the recipient of this award, a testament to Chrysler’s visionary design team.”

Ralph Gilles, president and CEO – SRT Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC, accepted the award in ceremonies at Chrysler’s Featherstone Research and Engineering Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

“With fewer than 30,000 Vipers built since the nameplate’s launch in 1992, the Viper has earned its place as a unique, hand-built American exotic supercar,” said Gilles. “The National Automotive History Collection award further recognizes the exclusivity and collectability of our flagship performance machine from Chrysler Group.”

The NAHC is the world’s largest collection of automotive books and historical materials, and is housed at the Skillman Branch of the Detroit Public Library.  The NAHC Board of Trustees raises funds and provides volunteer assistance for the collection.

About SRT Viper
The fifth generation of iconic American-built supercar returned in 2013 as the SRT (Street and Racing Technology) brand’s flagship performance machine with more power and performance, superior craftsmanship, new technologies and creature comforts. Power from the all-aluminum, 8.4-liter mid-front V-10 engine delivering 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque – the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports-car engine in the world, combines with reduction in curb weight to produce the best power-to-weight ratio of any Viper ever. Standard safety features include electronic multistage stability control, traction control and anti-lock brake system (ABS).

Two models of the iconic supercar are hand-built at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit – the Viper’s home since 1995. Both SRT Viper and SRT Viper GTS models offer interior and exterior designs incorporating premium materials and new exterior surfaces with aerodynamically functional details that are beautifully integrated into the high-tech carbon fiber and aluminum skin. On the inside, designers and engineers strived to rethink all its touch points and upgrade all its material appointments and technologies. The Viper GTS model adds many premium features including a leather wrapped interior, five mode electronic stability control and an adjustable suspension.

About the National Automotive History Collection (NAHC)
The NAHC is the world’s largest public archive of automotive information and an invaluable resource for automotive historians, journalists and collectors.  Housed in the Skillman Branch of the Detroit Public Library at 121 Gratiot in downtown Detroit, the NAHC’s collection of books, manuals, photos, company histories and historic documents is open to the public.

Ram 1500 nails ‘Truck of the Year’ for second straight year

Ram 1500 nails ‘Truck of the Year’ for second straight year

Motor Trend magazine has selected the Ram 1500 as its 2014 Truck of the Year for an unprecedented second straight year. The announcement was made at the Warren (Mich.) Truck Assembly Plant—the birthplace of Ram Trucks.

ram1500red

 

Nine Truck of the Year contenders were put through an extensive battery of testing designed to evaluate virtually every aspect of each vehicle. To determine which truck deserved top honors, the Motor Trend judges took the nine contenders to the Continental Tire Automotive Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas.

2013ram1500blue

Following the team’s intensive, week long evaluation in Uvalde, the trucks were shipped to Motor Trend headquarters in El Segundo, Calif., to undergo proprietary “Intellichoice Real MPG” fuel-economy testing. The winner was not chosen from a direct comparison against the other contenders, but rather as a result of how each contender measured up against the award’s six criteria: design advancement, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value, and performance of intended function.

The 2014 Dodge Durango Special Service delivers the perfect combination of capability, fuel economy and utility with a new standard eight-speed transmission, improved fuel economy up to 25 miles per gallon and the ability to tow as much as 7,400-pounds. Featuring class-leading utility and driving range of over 600 miles, and a whole host of safety technologies, the new Dodge Durango Special Service will meet the needs of a wide range of fleet customers.“The 2014 Dodge Durango Special Service model is a state-of-the-art resource for fleet customers,” said Peter Grady, Vice President of Network Development and Fleet Operations. “It’s been specifically designed for the demands and rigors of fleet duty. It joins the Dodge Charger Pursuit sedan and Ram 1500 Special Service truck currently available to government fleet customers.”

In addition to the many features standard on the new Durango, the Special Service model also features additional components designed for the rigors of daily fleet use, including a heavy-duty brake package, heavy-duty battery, larger-output 220-amp alternator, heavy-duty water pump and engine oil cooler and a load leveling suspension.

The Dodge Durango Special Service will be built at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit. Chrysler Group fleet operations will start taking orders now, with production expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2013.

A 5-year/100,000-mile fully transferrable powertrain warranty helps eliminate worry of any repair costs to the covered components.

Dodge Durango: Best-in-class towing and driving range for the No Compromises SUV
The new 2014 Dodge Durango takes everything that customers love about Durango and adds the latest advancements in technology to enhance its design, capability and functionality. With a new standard eight-speed automatic transmission, improved fuel economy and performance, new LED exterior lighting, two new interior touchscreens, a new programmable instrument cluster and an available high-definition dual-screen Blu-ray entertainment system, the 2014 Dodge Durango reaches even higher levels of sophistication building on its proven performance, utility and comfort.

Named one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines for three years, Durango’s standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine is paired with the new standard eight-speed transmission and generates an impressive 290 horsepower (295 horsepower on Rallye and Citadel) and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, and can tow up to a best-in-class 6,200 pounds. The V-6 powered Durango also features a best-in-class driving range of over 600 miles on a tank and up to 25 miles per gallon.

The available 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine produces a best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque with a best-in-class tow rating of 7,400 pounds. The 5.7-liter engine’s Fuel Saver Technology with cylinder-deactivation seamlessly alternates between smooth, high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and V-8 mode when more power is in demand. Models with the HEMI V-8 engine achieve up to 23 miles per gallon.

The new instrument panel features a redesigned center stack that houses the new 5-inch and 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreens. The bottom of the center stack houses a new media hub with an SD card slot, USB outlet and auxiliary jacks, as well as a storage bin. The new center console features a new segment-first rotary shifter for the standard eight-speed automatic that adds another level of refinement over the traditional gated automatic shifter. Manual shift functions have moved to paddle shifters on the back of the Durango’s new steering wheel.

The instrument cluster has also been given the high-tech treatment and now includes a full-color 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) screen similar to the one found in the all-new Dodge Dart. Standard on all models, this screen allows for drivers to customize more than 100 ways how information is presented.
