2007 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty Named Cleanest Diesel on the Market

January 30, 2007

(L-R) DaimlerChrysler Chairman and CEO Dieter Zetsche; Chrysler Group President and CEO Tom LaSorda; Bill Wehrum, EPA assistant administrator; and Joe Loughrey, president and COO Cummins Inc., reveal plans to offer clean diesel technology on Dodge heavy-duty trucks beginning in 2007 at the Washington Auto Show.

DETROIT – The new 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickups with the Cummins 6.7L turbodiesel engine were recognized at the auto show in Washington, D.C., as the cleanest mass-production diesel-engine trucks on the market. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Department of Energy, the Chrysler Group, and Cummins came together at the auto show to acknowledge this achievement. According to the manufacturer, the Dodge Ram Heavy Duty’s 6.7L Cummins turbodiesel engine is the first to meet the 2010 truck emissions standards in all 50 states. It also is the first BlueTec vehicle from the Chrysler Group. The emissions technology, along with the use of ultra low sulfur diesel, reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by as much as 90 percent and virtually eliminates particulate emissions. Available in dealerships in March, the BlueTec-equipped 2007 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty will start at $33,650 (includes destination).
