Ram Diesel Trucks For Sale In Shawnee, OK
Take Advantage Of The Power And Efficiency Of A Diesel Truck!
We've all seen the signs along the highway as we pass service station after service station, but do you really know the differences between gasoline and diesel? David Stanley Dodge offers you a great selection of trucks, many of which are available with different kinds of engines. With Ram diesel trucks for sale in Shawnee, OK, you know you're getting only the best performance for your money.
Over the past few years, we've seen the prices go up and down again, but diesel always seems to be higher. While you may think that a higher gas price is a disadvantage, there's more than meets the eye. Diesel fuel is not only used to power engines, but also generators and heating oil, which means it's quite flexible, but in very big demand in high quantities. Diesel engines don't require spark plugs or distributors, so they don't ever need ignition tune-ups which is a huge advantage over gasoline engines. Diesel engines are well-renowned for their durability, power, and, surprisingly, fuel economy. You'd think that powering a diesel engine means you'd be burning through gas, but you'll find that they offer a higher fuel economy, thanks to a higher compression ratio in the engine.
The devil Is in the details, as they say, so let's see how Ram diesel trucks for sale in Shawnee, OK, compare to each other. If you're to choose a light duty Ram truck like the 2015 Ram 1500, you're able to upgrade to the available 3.0L EcoDiesel on either the 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain. While the standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 4x2 drivetrain gets 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, the EcoDiesel gets only 240 horsepower but improves with 420 lb-ft of torque. The fuel economy is what really sets them apart, with the 3.6L engine getting 17/25 city/highway MPG1 and the 3.0L engine netting you 20/28 city/highway MPG1. When you upgrade to a 4x4, the horsepower and torque stay the same, but the EcoDiesel engine gets 19/27 city/highway MPG1, which beats the 16/23 city/highway MPG1 of the Pentastar®.
If you're looking for more rugged and durable Ram diesel trucks for sale in Shawnee, look no further than a heavy duty pickup. The Ram 2500 comes with the available 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 Engine, and it comes with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission and quite a bit of power. The 6-speed manual transmission nets you a heft 350 horsepower and 660 lb-ft of torque, but the 6-speed automatic does it better with 370 horsepower and 880 lb-ft of torque!
If you jump up to the Ram 3500, you get the same 6-speed manual or automatic transmission options with the same torque and horsepower, but another available engine is the 6.7L Cummins® High Output Turbo Diesel I6 Engine. This one gets you the most horsepower and torque with 385 and 865 lb-ft respectively.
