Eco-Diesel Engine named one of the top 10 engines in the world
Truck lovers in Alberta will love the capabilities of the brand new 2014 Ram 1500 in Edmonton, and those in need of an SUV will be thrilled to find the same engine available in the comfortable 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee in Edmonton. Moving away from the traditional powerful Cummins diesel, we are happy to say that the 3.0L Eco-diesel DOHC V-6 featured in the 2014 Ram 1500 and 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a game changer.
While you are considering which engine to go for in your new Ram or Jeep consider the following: Between a traditional gasoline engine and the new 3.0L turbodiesel both the Ram and Jeep will save you hundreds of dollars per year versus their gas equivalent. On top of this any comparable truck made by Ford or Chevrolet do not come close to the 28 MPG the new Ram 1500 is capable of. Lastly, diesel engines have always had exceptional durability and lower maintenance than their gasoline counterparts. While an average gas motor often lasts about 200,000 KM before needing a rebuild, the typical diesel often goes triple the distance before breaking down.
If this was not enough reason to go test drive a new 2014 Ram 1500 Eco-Diesel or Jeep Grand Cherokee Eco-diesel today then also consider that with the rising cost of gas in Alberta you will continue to save money every time you fill up your diesel tank. Though older technology may have meant that with the higher initial price of a diesel you would not make the money back for many years, the efficiency present in the 3.0L V-6 Eco-diesel reduces this time period and makes the diesel a huge contender in today’s economy.
With such an emphasis on fuel savings, and the most savings per kilometer of any other available pickup, is it still going to give me the power I need for my every day duties?
Chrysler has you covered there with 9,200 LBS max towing capacity and 420 LB-FT of torque it’s no wonder that this turbodiesel is a force to be reckoned with. Combine this high torque with 240 HP and a high ratio 8-speed Torqueflight transmission to get all the acceleration and flexibility you need. By producing 50% more torque than a gasoline engine we are confident that this light truck can meet most any challenge you throw its way.
With almost 28 mpg on the highway and a towing capacity of 9,200LBS you will be unstoppable
If you have not yet had the opportunity to challenge this truck in person we recommend finding the time to do so today.
When you do you will realize that Ram has thrown the book out of what driving a typical diesel should be. By changing to the 3.0L V6 Eco-diesel Chrysler has removed the typical big-rig Cummins experience. Instead of the noise, smell, and harm to the environment, they have replaced it with a silent, sophisticated, and modest truck that still performs when it is required.
So what if I don’t need a truck? And prefer the practicality of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has three choices of engines, and once again we prefer the 3.0L Eco-diesel and its refined, smooth, and quiet power-plant.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee, like its Ram cousin, has a slightly improved fuel economy rating of 30 MPG on the highway. With an advertised range of just under 1200 KM per tank you will love this vehicle on road trips to the mountains, going fishing at the lake, or any adventure you seek. With less of a focus on towing and more of a focus on reducing noise, vibration, and harshness the Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the most comfortable vehicles you will ever drive.
Eco-Diesel is available in the 2014 Grande Cherokee and the 2014 Ram 1500
A considerable cabin, comfortable ride, and sturdy base which have always been present in the Grand Cherokee, is further improved when factoring in the many advantages of the 3.0L Ecodiesel. With a large emphasis on comfort it is hard to believe that a 0-100 KM/H time can still be reached in around 7.5 seconds from the 240HP machine.
Once again this marvel of engineering has set a new standard in the light pick up and mid-sized SUV market. By staying one step ahead of the competition, Chrysler, along with subsidiaries Ram and Jeep once again continue to thrive with the development of new technologies. Experience for yourself why the Ram 1500 has already won the Motortrend Truck of the Year award, and why the Grand Cherokee has been such a popular vehicle since its first production in 1992.
