The auto company began accepting preorders of its EcoDiesel pickup truck on February 7 and the company sold[3] 8,000 vehicles in three days. The 2014 Ram 1500’s preorders set a record pace for the industry, according to Chrysler.

The truck leads the industry in highway miles per gallon and it has the best combined fuel economy along with the Toyota (TM[4]) Tacoma. The 2014 Ram 1500 runs on Chryler’s EcoDiesel technology with a 3.0L V6 that allows it to tow up to 9,800 pounds.

Ram continues to be one of the most popular pickup truck brands in the U.S., behind only the Ford (F[5]) F-Series and the Chevrolet (GM[6]) Silverado.
