    Spying: Is This Ram 1500 Packing A Diesel?

    While GM has shelved their small diesel for their half-ton trucks, Ram looks to be soldiering on with their plans for a diesel 1500. Some new spy shots have caught a Ram 1500 single-cab with an odd thing. On this truck, the rear fender happens to be covered with soot, leading us to believe this happens to be a diesel 1500.

    Left Lane News speculates that under the hood lies a version of the Italian-built VM Motori 3.0L diesel V6 that will power the 2013/2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The 3.0L V6 produces 240 HP and over 400 lb-ft. of torque.

    Yup that sure is the traditional diesel back makeup it leaves. :P Smart job on hiding this one.

    I hope GM has a projectlike this going on. It would so be radical for them to have a 4.8l duramax being tested.

    I sincerely hope DIESEL wins out as powerplant of choice to meet these punitive new CAFE rules. I can't think of an easier pill to swallow.
