Anyone heard of when EcoDiesel orders will start? Dealerships around here are clueless. I had to argue to convince them 2014's were able to be ordered.

Looks like the end of this year. Info I found on our Intranet under daily supplier news.

Chrysler supplier: Diesel future promising - Light-duty diesels, offered in the 2014 Ram 1500 pickup and Jeep Grand Cherokee, could spread to other Chrysler Group nameplates if the automaker wants, says the president of the Italian supplier building the engines. "Wherever there is a [Chrysler 3.6-liter] Pentastar, there could be a VM 3.0-liter diesel -- Dodge Durango, Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Jeep Wrangler, the minivans," says Raffaele DeVivo, president of VM Motori North America. DeVivo told Automotive News that he believes up to 30 percent of 2014 Ram 1500 buyers will select the optional 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine when it goes on sale near the end of the year. VM Motori could be producing up to 135,000 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engines within two years for the Ram 1500 and the Grand Cherokee and other products, he said. In 2012, VM Motori produced 55,000 3.0-liter diesels worldwide, and plans to build 86,000 this year. VM Motori S.p.A. has two 50-50 shareholders, General Motors and Fiat. DeVivo believes today's refined diesel engines will dispel Americans' memories of loud, smelly diesels. "The Jeep Grand Cherokee with the V-6 diesel engine is state of the art, and the NVH is very nice," the transplanted Italian said in his office in Auburn Hills, Mich. NVH stands for noise, vibration and harshness. Ram brand head Reid Bigland told reporters in late June that he expects at least 10 percent of Ram half-ton pickup buyers to choose a diesel powertrain, and that number could climb up to 30 percent. Ram has not revealed the diesel Ram's fuel economy, but industry speculation is that it could reach as high as 27 or 28 mpg on the highway, compared to 25 mpg for the Ram powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 gasoline engine.

My dealer said late August or September for the diesel Grand Cherokee, So the I could see it becoming available in the Ram very late in the year but I doubt they'd be widely available.

Well my links worked for a while and now they don't. The above was a link to TruckTrend.

When the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was first announced, Chrysler boasted the diesel-powered truck would ultimately boast “impressive capability.” Thanks to an announcement made this morning, we now know that means the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is rated to tow up to 9200 pounds
That figure is tied to a two-wheel-drive, regular-cab 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel fitted with a 8-foot pickup bed. That’s nearly 1900 pounds more than a similarly equipped 2014 Ram 1500 with the 3.6-liter Pentastar gasoline V-8, and roughly 800 pounds shy of a comparably-spec’ed Ram 1500 with equipped with the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8.
Although the EcoDiesel will be offered in other Ram 1500 configurations, a Ram Trucks spokesman says tow ratings for those vehicles are still “in validation.”
Even so, the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has other six-cylinder full-size pickups bested for towing. Two-wheel-drive, long-bed 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra pickups equipped with the 4.3-liter V-6 are rated to tow 7900 pounds. A 2014 Ford F-150 ordered with the base 3.7-liter V-6 can tow as much as 6700 pounds, while F-150s fitted with the optional twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 can pull as much as 9700 pounds. A 2013 Toyota Tundra equipped with the base 4.0-liter six-cylinder pulls up to 4900 pounds, if equipped with an optional tow package.
It’s worth noting that, to date, only Toyota abides by the J2807 tow rating standard set by the Society of Automotive Engineers, meaning each manufacturer’s rating and testing differs slightly.
As the name suggests, the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is powered by a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6 sourced from VM Motori. Virtually identical to the EcoDiesel engine offered in the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the engine produces 240 hp at 3600 rpm in pickup guise, along with a stout 420 lb-ft of torque at 2000 rpm. Chrysler promises admirable fuel economy from the powertrain, but isn’t talking figures until the final certification and validation has been performed.
Full pricing for the 2014 Ram 1500 has not yet been announced, but Chrysler says the trucks equipped with the EcoDiesel will command a $2850 premium over the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8/ eight-speed automatic combination.
Expect more towing and fuel economy figures to be revealed just prior to the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel’s market launch later this year.

So what will the tow rating be for a half decently equipped crew cab 4x4???
