About the EcoDiesel Engine
The EcoDiesel V6 uses dual overhead camshafts with four valves per cylinder and a 60-degree angle between the cylinder banks, while the block is cast in graphite iron providing strength to dampen vibrations. There are several changes to the RAMs EcoDiesel engine that help give it an improved dynamic as well as a better fuel economy. An exhaust gas recirculation system design has been updated to a low and high-pressure system which allows the EcoDiesel to draw gases after the diesel particulate filter, thus minimizing energy losses and increasing fuel economy. Also included are high-pressure direct-injection fuel injector nozzles which are redesigned to match the newly designed and optimized combustion chamber. And lightweight aluminum alloy pistons are entirely redesigned to include thinner rings and low-friction coating on the pin and side skirts to reduce losses. These upgrades look to build on the EcoDiesel V6’s previous success which has won “Wards 10 Best Engines” for three consecutive years.
