For 2014, Ram 1500 is available with a diesel engine, making it the first half-ton pickup to offer a modern, clean diesel engine option (though there was a light-duty diesel option offered by Dodge decades ago). Also new for 2014 are new colors and chrome bits. Otherwise, Ram 1500 carries over unchanged. The current-generation Ram was launched as a 2009 model.
The new 3.0-liter V6 diesel is rated at 240 horsepower, 420 pound-feet of torque, with an EPA-estimated 20/28 mpg City/Highway. It pairs with the 8-speed automatic transmission.
Both the 3.6-liter V6 and 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engines carry over to 2014 unchanged from the 2013 model year, and they are paired with either a 6- or 8-speed automatic. Although GM and Ford offer a bigger, more powerful V8 than the Ram Hemi, only Ram puts the big engine in a regular cab model.
Ram Sport includes the 5.7-liter Hemi and 8-speed automatic, high-back bucket seats, body-color bumpers and mirrors, fog lamps, LED interior lighting, power adjustable pedals, audio system upgrade, rearview camera, projector headlamps in black housings, 20×9-inch wheels and most convenience features or Outdoorsman and Big Horn/Lone Star.
