2022 Ram 1500 Brings Diesel Power to Elk Point

Jun 7,2022

If you are seeking a diesel truck with robust capability for big jobs, the 2022 Ram 1500 is worth a test drive from St. Paul Dodge in Alberta. This rig affords Elk Point drivers with strong diesel horsepower and best-in-class torque ratings, unlike its main competitor, the 2022 Ford F-150. Optional on Laramie, Limited Longhorn and Limited trims, the 2022 Ram 1500 offers an available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine. This block features compacted graphite iron and aluminum twin-cam heads with B20 biodiesel capability and Active Air Grille Shutters. With 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of best-in-class torque flowing through the eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2022 Ram 1500 delivers robust pulling power with a 5,696-kg towing capacity. The 2022 Ford F-150, on the other hand, simply cannot compete. For its 2022 model year, the Blue Oval discontinued the F-Series truck's 3.0L PowerStroke Diesel V8 engine in favour of an all-electric powertrain on the F-150 Lightning. If you want an F-150 diesel, you'll have to settle for a 2021 model. You'll also get less power and twist with 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. The truck's hauling abilities leave little to desire, too, with a 5,488 kg towing capacity.
