Who is faster – Ram 1500 EcoDiesel pickup or Chevy Silverado DuramaxOctober 28, 2019
A team of enthusiasts decided to compare which pickup is faster and more powerful. The test involved Ram 1500 EcoDiesel or Chevy Silverado Duramax – both equipped with diesel engines with approximately the same displacement.
It cannot be denied that the new generation of the American Ram 1500 in the diesel version of EcoDiesel is a very good truck. Its engine not only provides impressive fuel economy – 9.04 liters per 100 km of track in the combined cycle, but is also good in terms of towing. Many who have already driven this car claim that this is the best-in-class “towing vehicle with tons of torque and impressive off-road capabilities.”
The guys from the TFLnow team decided to check who is faster than the Chevrolet Silverado in the diesel modification Duramax or Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. For the tests we used the direct race (drag racing) and I must say that this test gives us answers to some important questions.
What’s under the hoods of two pickups? The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 engine with 260 horsepower (650 Nm), which works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Silverado uses a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine rated at 277 hp. (624 Nm). A 10-speed automatic transmission is installed here.
There were only two races and in both cases the same truck became the winner.
I have to say right away, do not expect anything supernatural from this race, but it’s still very fun to watch how these two large cars try to overtake each other. It is important to note that these two pickups are very similar. They have engines with the same displacement, the same cab layout and only two driving wheels.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Fiat Chrysler recalls more than 100,000 pickups Ram-1500. The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles concern on October 25 announced the start of recall of its cars in connection with a malfunction of the cooling system.
