WASHINGTON, Jan 23 (Reuters) -

Chrysler Group, a unit of Germany's DaimlerChrysler AG said on Tuesday it will introduce a new turbodiesel engine in its Dodge light duty pickups after 2009.

The new Cummins Inc. clean diesel technology for the Dodge Ram 1500 will provide up to 30 percent better fuel economy and a 20 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions compared with a conventional gasoline engine, Chrysler said.

The diesel design will meet emissions standards of all 50 U.S. states for 2010, the company said.

In Europe, diesel-powered models account for more than half of Chrysler sales. Dodge is Chrysler's best-selling brand in the United States.
