Chrysler to Offer V-6 Diesel Engine Option for 2014 Ram

June 28 (Bloomberg) -- Chrysler Group LLC said it will offer a V-6 diesel engine as an option for Ram 1500 pickup trucks.

The 3-liter diesel engine will be priced $2,850 more than the 5.7-liter Hemi gasoline V-8, according to an e-mailed statement. Chrysler also offers the pickup with a 3.6-liter V-6 gasoline engine.

Pickups are a major source of profit for Auburn Hills, Michigan-based Chrysler as well as competitors General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Co. Ram pickup sales surged 23 percent this year through May, better than Chrysler’s total 9 percent gain during that period. Chrysler is majority owned by Turin, Italy-based Fiat SpA.

GM, based in Detroit, is introducing redesigned Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra large pickups. Dearborn, Michigan-based Ford in January unveiled a prototype of a revamped F-150 pickup called Atlas that foreshadowed its future trucks.
