DETROIT (WKZO) -- The Environmental Protection Agency has rated the 2014 RAM 1500 pickup with the optional diesel engine at 28-miles per gallon on the highway.

The rating means the truck has the best fuel rating of any half-ton pickup sold and beats the best mileage of small pickup trucks tested by the E.P.A.  The EcoDiesel motor is the first diesel offered in the half-ton pickup category.

RAM President and CEO Reid Bigland said not only is it the best fuel mileage of any truck, but it will also tow 92-hundred pounds.  The vehicle is the first truck to win "Motor Trend" magazine's Truck of the Year award two years in a row.
