All-New 2009 Dodge Ram is Going to be Up to 20 Percent More Fuel Efficient

Dodge unveiled the all-new 2009 Dodge Ram pickup at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. Now according to Chrysler executives the all-new Ram could see a 20 percent improvement in fuel efficiency over the out going model.

The 5.7L Hemi V8 is both more powerful and efficient. It features 380 horsepower, 404 lb-ft. of torque and has become five percent efficient. The mileage gains are attributed to improved aerodynamics and by cutting 80 pounds from the truck’s overall weight. The 2009 Ram is going to get 23 mpg on the highway up from 19 mpg for the 2008 model.

“This is the best truck Dodge has ever made,” said Dodge’s director Mike Accavitti.
