So what will the tow rating be for a half decently equipped crew cab 4x4???
8000lbs is my guess

+1 on holding off a while to work out any issues.
I am looking forward to seeing the EcoD in a Jeep Wrangler soon too.

Right, just like the ZF transmissions for 2013. Time will tell, but I haven't heard (or experienced) anything bad regarding those. I don't blame you for not wanting to be one of the initial adopters though.

The diesel was introduced in 2011 (VM is owned by Fiat and GM, both have a 50% stake).

Same with the eight speed:

As others have said, these powertrain units have been used in production for years. Just new to us.

Waiting anxiously for more info but did see that the site had been updated;

http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/ecodiesel/

The only thing that sucks is it appears you cannot add the diesel to the Sport model which is the appearance package that I want. Sucks but I think it appears I will have to go with the Big Horn with less options...Dammit!!
