Ram-3500-2014-Web

Based on manufacturers’ reported sales, the Ram pickup outsold the Chevrolet Silverado by 285 units in March. Chrysler Group reported 42,532 Ram pickup deliveries last month, compared to 42,247 sales of the Silverado.

According to Automotive News, this is the first time since 1999 that a Dodge or Ram pickup has outsold the Chevrolet.

According to figures released by Honda, Toyota and Nissan, the Ram also outsold the Accord, Camry and Altima to take the overall No. 2 spot behind the Ford-F-series pickup.

Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for just-auto.com, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
