Test Drives2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Still In Love4.5/5
Sometimes distance can change your perspective. When I initially drove the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel back when it was released in 2014, I was amazed at how adeptly Chrysler had been able to pair real-world fuel efficiency with the kind of torque and practicality that full-size truck owners demand. It was …
