I know that FCA has some diesel engines, but i think that some of them have been under some more scrutiny for not living up to their tested emissions figures. I would imagine that a diesel is possible, but they are going to want to take care of any issues that the regulators have with their engines beforehand. I mean they have to do that.

They won't put them in a Rebel because it would exceed the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) of a 1500 series truck.

And they hasn't been any issues with emissions on RAM diesels.

AH is that what's holding them back for real... do you know by how much it exceeds?

So if it goes over that rating would it just have to change classification? is there any consequences to that other than the label?

Not sure by how much but I can tell you that when ordering a 1500 diesel that their are restrictions on things like air suspension, rambox, and sunroof in the combination with the diesel as they go over weight for a 1500

it would become a 2500 then

Looking at the overall trend throughout the industry... if RAM will bring a diesel Rebel to market, chances are it could happen in the second year model, especially with the speed diesels are popping up, it will be wise for them to come to market with it as soon as next year.
