Thank you for reinforcing my point, despite your ignorant and uncalled for comment.
Your so called "point" was the engine the engine grenades by 150K miles and I posted to enlighten you and others that the engines go a lot farther than that.
So who's comment is ignorant? (I'll give you one hint it wasn't mine).

yeap, too much money to be made from commercial fleet orders. The same CTD engine is used in all the HD trucks (4500/5500 included).
If I was to take a guess what did the EcoDiesel in on the Ram was production availability, just not enough available time slots on the production line. Ram knows there's going to be a huge demand for gas powered trucks as the electric version nears going into production with it's huge demand. Why do you think they keep making the Classic version, people still want it over the Gen5 and they make a fortune from each one.
My guess would be they are are going to focus placing the eco diesel in countries that are less emission restricted as opposed to the R&D costs need to satisfy the up coming stricter EPA requirements here in the states.

anyone heard of anyone installing a GEN 3 Ecodiesel in a 2016 Ram Ecodiesel ?

If they don't make a Ram Ecodiesel in 2023

I think i may be hunting for someone who might tackle that project

I have what's called the 10/80 rule while driving. That means if someone within 10 miles is driving like an *** h o l e , there's an 80% chance they are in a minivan. It kind of applies to new posters....If someone posts something and get their weeetle feewins hurt so easily, chances are it's a new poster. Only 8 from you so far....Not a record, but not unexpected either.

LOL.

Thank you for the additional useless and unnecessary comments. You seem to have a real knack for that!

Is that how you got your post count up so high?

Have a nice weekend, and forgive me as I step out of the conversation at this point.

In 10 years the whole country will be stopped with the push of a button when everything is electric. Electric has never been about the environment and always been about control and making
Chic oms rich.
You might as well have led with your obvious bias in the first place. What you don’t know about electric vehicles and the environment has filled books.

Imagine picking a fight with a mod cause your opinion is wrong :gathering: like bruh just cause you have the opinion doesn’t mean it’s factually accurate, this was a comical read though! Thank you for the Monday morning laughs

An eco diesel is really an oxymoron. Diesel are not economical in terms of total cost of ownership and the engines with their emissions controls are not as reliable as a gas engine.

I was looking at new and used pickups earlier in the year and the new one were selling for $5,000 over MSRP. But I found a 2021 Eco-diesel on a dealer's lot and it was listed at $5,000 under KBB. I phoned the dealer and talked to a sales person and he was honest that most people did not want the baby diesel.

My last truck had a GM diesel engine and it was great when towing a 13,000 lb load but it was also not reliable and I had 3 vacation trips aborted due to engine problems.

I see the need for an ecodiesel but personally dont drive or haul anything so for me that wouldnt be an option, if I WERE considering a diesel I would move to the Cummins turbo diesel in the 3/4 ton. I like and have always liked the hemi, dont know nor will live long enough to care about electric vehicles no need for me to own any other Ram but the 5.7.
