As if another strong sales month isn't enough, Ram Truck issued a statement that it will make an important announcement at 11 a.m. Eastern time Wednesday. The big news seems to be about the Ram EcoDiesel. Following the announcement, Ram President and CEO Reid Bigland will do a live web chat at 2 p.m. Eastern from the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Michigan, where most of the Ram 1500s are manufactured.
You can join the discussion by sending questions to Bigland via Twitter by using hashtag #ChryslerLive. Although this type of event is a little unusual, it wouldn't surprise us if the news was about the release of actual EPA numbers for the EcoDiesel or the 2014 Motor Trend Truck of the Year award, since that's one of the last major pickup awards still pending this year.
The 2013 Ram 1500 won the Motor Trend award last year after a significant redesign but did qualify for Motor Trend's 2014 competition this year because of the new powertrain option.
Stay tuned for more.
