2014 FIAT DUCATO V 3.0
The EcoDiesel is a diesel engine used in Ram Trucks and Jeep vehicles since 2014. Introduced by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the EcoDiesel name was used for two different engines. The first was the VM Motori L630, the North American variant of the A 630 DOHC 3.0L engine, which was used in the Ram 1500 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The other was a 3.0 inline-4 Iveco diesel engine used in the Ram ProMaster, the North American version of the Fiat Ducato. The ProMaster with the Iveco/EcoDiesel was available for a few years and is no longer offered.

The engine was first offered in some non-U.S. markets starting in 2011. That summer Chrysler Australia released a Jeep Grand Cherokee with the VM Motori 3 liter V-6. The summer of 2011 is also when Fiat bought a controlling share of Chrysler from the U.S. Treasury, before buying the remaining shares from VEBA in January 2014.
Ram released EcoDiesels in March of 2014 in its 1500 pickups to positive reviews and strong consumer demand--surpassing their expectations for the product. The fuel efficiency achieved hadn't been seen in a full-sized pickup before. From 2014 to 2019 this generation of the EcoDiesel was optional in the Ram 1500 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
In January of 2019 Fiat Chrysler settled with the U.S. Justice Department on behalf of the EPA and the state of California. This settlement applied to more than 100,000 2014-2016 model year vehicles.
Further blurring the lines between the first and second generation of the EcoDiesel is the case of the Maserati. In 2014 the Maserati Ghibli and the Maserati Quattroporte were both released in Italy with the VM Motori engine used by Ram and Jeep. It had a different tune and was not branded as an EcoDiesel but it was the same engine. According to Motor Trend this was the first diesel Maserati in many years.
The Fiat Ducato is a light commercial vehicle jointly developed by FCA Italy and PSA Group (currently Stellantis), and mainly manufactured by Sevel, a joint venture between the two companies since 1981. It has also been sold as the Citroën C25, Peugeot J5, Alfa Romeo AR6 and Talbot Express and later as the Fiat Ducato, Citroën Jumper (Relay in the United Kingdom), and Peugeot Boxer, from 1994 onwards. It entered the North American market as the Ram ProMaster in May 2014 for the 2015 model year.
The most significant difference between the ProMaster and the Ducato is the availability of a 3.6 L 24 valve V6 gasoline Chrysler Pentastar engine offered in conjunction with the Chrysler 62TE six speed automatic transmission as standard equipment. The Iveco 3.0 L 16-valve I4 diesel JTD engine, branded as EcoDiesel by Chrysler, mated with the M40 six speed automated manual transmission was offered in model years 2014 through 2016; however, the gasoline V6 is currently the sole engine available in the ProMaster. Starting in the 2021 model year, the standard engine is the 3.6 L 24 valve V6 gasoline Pentastar Upgrade engine, in cojunction with the 9-speed ZF 9HP48 automatic replacing the Chrysler 62TE Transmission.
The fourth generation Ducato/Jumper/Relay/Boxer (platform designation X290) was introduced in the summer of 2014, scheduled for an October 2014 debut as a 2015 model while the 2014 model year was entirely skipped. Although based on the third generation model, it features a heavily revised front end, with more car like headlight styling. Euro 6 engines were introduced for the 2017 model year in late 2016, and does not require Adblue (Fiat version only) unlike most of its competitors. The Ram ProMaster was revised in 2018 for the 2019 model year with a different grille, increased payload and improved towing capacity.
Designed by Fiat, which employs the engine in numerous applications including Class 2, 3 and 4 commercial vehicles, the 16-valve, dual-overhead cam I-4 has been adapted for the North American market with a wide range of modifications that enable regulatory compliance, while also enhancing performance. The 2014 Ram ProMaster also offers a 280 hp 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 gasoline engine option.
The 2014 FIAT Ducato also benefits from more advanced infotainment systems - a four-speaker audio system with Bluetooth technology and MP3 playback is now standard on all models, while FIAT's new UconnectTM, five-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system is available as an option. The system includes an advanced Bluetooth interface to access extra functions, such as phone call management, reading received SMS text messages via text-to-speech technology and audio streaming that plays music files or web radio stations directly from a smart device. A TomTom navigation system can also be integrated into the unit, complete with bird's eye mapping, progressive route guidance and a 'One-Step Voice Entry Destination' function for entering the destination address using voice commands. Other available enhancements include remote steering wheel controls, DAB digital radio and a reversing camera which operates in combination with rear parking sensors. Under the bonnet, FIAT Professional has been equally as thorough, working to reduce emissions and improve economy by around 10 percent across the Euro 5+ engine range. All FIAT Ducato models are equipped with a six-speed manual transmission as standard and now boasts best-in-class efficiency figures, with CO2 emissions for the entry-level 2.3 MultiJet II 110hp as low as 170g/km and an impressive fuel economy figure of 6.4L/100km on the NEDC cycle. Both the 2.3 MultiJet II 130, which produces 130hp and 320Nm, and the 2.3 litre MultiJet II 150, with 150hp and 350 Nm, return even better economy and emissions figures when equipped with optional Start&Stop - just 164g/km and 6.2L/100km for both engines! The heavy-duty, 3.0 MultiJet Power 180, with 180hp and 400Nm of torque, has CO2 emissions of 203g/km and returns 7.7L/100km on the NEDC cycle and, like every other engine in the FIAT Ducato range, has 48,000km service intervals to help lower service bills and reduce time the vehicle spends off the road for maintenance.
As a global product, the Ducato must prove its reliability and robustness to a more diverse customer base than ever before and for that reason an extensive test programme for the 2014 FIAT Ducato was implemented. Over the course of its development, the Ducato was subjected to 6.5 million gruelling test miles across a variety of demanding road and usage conditions and in some of the most extreme weather conditions imaginable.
The next best seller in 2014 was the Master (with 7.8 per cent share), then the Ducato (6.7 per cent) and the Transit, which only launched late in the year, garnered 3.8 per cent last year. So far, in 2015, there have been some clear gains to the Sprinter (up 23 per cent), Transit (up 80 per cent on the back of this new model) and Master (up 96 per cent), while sales of the Ducato have dipped by 27 per cent.
In addition to the new motor, the 2014 Sprinter offers several new options including electronic safety equipment found on the brand's luxury cars, a factory navigation system (a swappable unit that can be transferred between multiple vans in a fleet), Parktronic parking assist, blind spot detection assist, lane keeping assist, collision prevention brake assist and a load adaptive electronic stability program.
What we have here is generally termed the fourth-generation Ducato, launched in 2014, but it is essentially more of a facelift of the full third-generation model, which first saw the light of day in 2006, a couple of months behind its PSA Citroen Relay/Peugeot Boxer siblings.
The 2014 facelift boasted traction control, anti-slip regulation, roll-over mitigation, hill-holder and stability control with optional lane-departure warning, and camera-based speed limit recognition. Of course satnav, climate control, DAB radio and Bluetooth are all packaged one way or another.

This is my 3rd fiat ducato motorhome and i can't believe my paint work is falling off.. I now have spotted over 12 motorhomes with the same problem and i have finally met a person that fulled me in.Fiat is aware of the major problem and will repair it if pushed as the fault is well known.This guy received a full paint job after going to fiat.We all should contact 2gb if fiat stats that they won't re spray the vehicle..I will be on the phone tomorrow to get the ball rolling regarding my crapy stray job.
This Ducato has been updated in 2014, 2016 and 2019 (the MY20 upgrade), and although the latest payload figures are set to be a little lower than before, due to the introduction of an AdBlue tank for emissions control reasons, it remains one of the most practical choices in the large van class.
The X903D-DU is exclusively designed for the Fiat Ducato III (Type 250/251 model year 2006 and newer including 2011 and 2014 facelifts), Citroën Jumper II and the Peugeot Boxer II. It is compatible with vehicles with 1DIN radio or radio preparation. Motorhomes with a 2DIN radio or navigation (VP1 or VP2) require an additional Alpine installation bracket (KIT-903DU-OEM).
In February 2012, Fiat launched the Tecnico trim, which featured air conditioning, front fog lights, Blue&Me with steering wheel controls, TomTom predisposition on the dashboard, B&M TomTom Live navigator plus cradle, Start&Stop, special wheel trims, reverse parking sensors and eco:Drive Professional software. It wasn't offered on many variants tough, with just the 30 L1H1 and the 35 L3H2 versions getting the extra kit. ESP stability control was added to all models as standard in June 2013. These versions of the Ducato continued to be sold until its replacement with a facelifted version in 2014. 041b061a72
