February 26, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Today, Ram Truck began shipping Ram 1500 EcoDiesel trucks from Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Michigan to dealers within the United States.
Following EPA’s best-in-class certification of 28 MPG, Ram Truck received more than 8,000 orders for the fuel efficient truck armed with 420 lb.-ft. of torque and 9,200 lbs. of towing capacity.
Even more surprising is the amount of orders already paid for by customers — twice the corporate average of sold customer orders on a truck that customers have yet to test drive. Trucks are expected to arrive in showrooms across the United States over the next eight days.
