EcoDiesel V6 Engine Says Goodbye to Ram and Jeep Vehicles

EcoDiesel V6

Rams and Jeeps will be eventually deprived of an EcoDiesel V6. The age of diesel engines is coming to an end and the time of electric vehicles is beginning.

On its way to electrification, Stellantis abandons engines working on dirty fuel. The latest Jeep Grand Cherokee already arrives without the EcoDiesel V6.

Recently the news has come about the Jeep Wrangler: the diesel engine won’t be available for it anymore, but other engine options (gasoline V6, V8, plug-in- hybrid) remain.

In the middle of this month, Ram also announced the EcoDiesel V6 will end production in Ram Trucks early next year.

So, the Ram 1500 will join the ‘non-diesel vehicle’ club.  It’s logical to assume the same will happen with the Jeep Gladiator.

Jeep Wrangler Farout

At parting, Jeep releases a final special edition model – the Wrangler Farout in a limited run with a 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine making 260 hp and 442 pound-feet of torque.

We still don’t know whether it will be the only diesel variant available or whether customers will be able to order one of the other diesel-powered Wranglers for some time.

In any case, hurry up to purchase a diesel Jeep, as they’ll disappear from sale in the short term.

What We Know About EcoDiesel

The EcoDiesel has been used in Ram and Jeep vehicles since 2014. Two different engines have this name: VM Motori L630 (A 630 DOHC 3.0L) that powers the Ram 1500s, Jeeps, and Maserati products, and a 3.0 inline-four Iveco found in the Ram ProMaster (no longer offered).

EcoDiesel is known for its high torque and efficiency. For example, the Ram 1500 with this engine has 30 percent better fuel economy than the Ram 1500 with a Hemi V8 with comparable performance.
