Yup, JGC drives fantastic with this engine. I get curious looks at the diesel pump from other diesel drivers (usually heavy duty pickup trucks).

I love the torque. Lots of low-end grunt, just like it should be!

Re: The Ecodiesel selected as one of 2014 Ward's 10 Best Engines

Here is a cut and paste of the pertinent tidbits...

Another diesel making the list has been long overdue. The 3.0L V-6, sourced from Fiat-owned VM Motori in Italy for the Ram 1500, is the first modern light-duty diesel engine for a fullsize pickup. The engine also appears in the new Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV.

Ideally mated with a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, the 3.0L turbodiesel goes about its business with little effort or humdrum and propels the 6,000-lb. (2,722-kg) truck with ease.

Some WardsAuto editors achieved better than 24 mpg (9.8 L/100 km) in mixed driving, which is remarkable in a truck this large. Count on the Ram 1500 to deliver even better fuel economy during steady highway driving. The EPA numbers are not yet available for the Ram diesel.
