Dropped the V8 engine so as not to run on the liter anymore

It may sound strange, but the significantly smaller 3-liter V6 engine, which has replaced the 5.7-liter V8 engine in the RAM 1500, no longer hums the litre.

There is a difference between the new and the old RAM 1500. Just not where it should really count the most. Namely on the fuel economy.

New official figures from the US authorities show that the old RAM 1500 with a 5.7-liter V8 engine with a combined body gets exactly as 'far' on a liter of gasoline as the new version with a 3-liter V6 engine .

That's what Motor1 writes.

And far is an exaggeration. Because even when we convert Americans' fuel economy calculations, which take place in gallons, to miles per liters, it looks bad.

18 miles per gallon in the USA corresponds to what we would say here at home is 7.7 km/l. Or a periodic green tax of – and hold on tight – 7,150 kroner. And it's half-yearly. Ow ow ow!

But it is actually cheaply released. Because if the new RAM 1500 had been a 3-litre diesel, the bill would have been DKK 13,040. Again – semi-annually.

In other words, the idea of importing such a case is probably quite remote for most people. But then again, how expensive can it really be?

Yes, the most expensive half-yearly tax in Denmark affects diesel cars that travel less than 5.1 kilometers per hour. the liter. It costs a whopping DKK 19,980 half-yearly when the car is registered after 2 October 2017.
