If you're in the market for a light- or heavy-duty truck and you're willing to throw down your hard earned cash, you're going to want only the best. With increased performance and fuel efficiency, Ram diesel trucks for sale in Yukon, OK, offer you more bang for your buck. Whether you're looking for a 2015 Ram 1500, 2500, 3500, or more, David Stanley Dodge has you covered when it comes to powerful diesel trucks for sale in Oklahoma.
There are a few distinct differences between a gasoline engine and a diesel engine, and they both have pros and cons. Diesel engines are widely known for getting great mileage, improved torque, and outstanding fuel economy, but you'll sometimes have to pay extra at the pump. Diesels also feature a higher fuel compression ratio in their engine, and therefore often last longer than their gasoline counterparts. This means less trips to the shop and more time on the road. Because diesel engines do not utilize spark plugs or distributors, your maintenance costs will likely be lower than that of a gasoline engine, but that doesn't mean it won't need regular oil changes, filter changes, and general upkeep to properly function.
The Ram family includes light-duty, heavy-duty, and chassis cab trucks, as well as a line of vans and commercial vehicles. Depending on what you want out of your truck, you're going to have to do some research, but David Stanley Dodge makes that easier for you. Your Ram light-duty truck consists of the 2015 Ram 1500, either with a 4x2 or 4x4 drivetrain. The rear-wheel drive system of the 1500 comes with the available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine, which features 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. The standard engine of the Ram 1500 is a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 that features 305 horsepower, which would seem like a step up, except that it only gives you 269 lb-ft of torque. The 3.0L EcoDiesel also wins when you look at fuel economy, with 21/29 city/highway MPG1 versus the 17/25 city/highway MPG1 of the 3.6L Pentastar®. The 4WD system of the Ram 1500 offers the same horsepower and torque, but the EcoDiesel offers 19/27 city/highway MPG1 versus the 16/23 city/highway MPG1 of the Pentastar® engine.

If you're looking to outfit your Ram with some aftermarket tools, the Ram Chassis 3500, 4500, and 550 Cabs give you what you need.
