The specs on the 1500 EcoDiesel from a towing perspective aren't all that impressive. Payload and towing capacity were significantly less than the 5.7 hemi. Max towing is between 8-9,000 lbs. and payload is around 1,300 with crew cab and gets a little better with the quad. 5.7 is around 10,800 and 1,700 lbs payload.
The EcoDiesel does get close to 30 mpg so I've read, which would be nice.

This would be pulling my #7500lbs trailer GVW around 10,000lbs. I wonbder if the 1500 can pull it with the small diesel? I don't plan on upgrading to a heavier TT later.
