Next Ram unlike latest edition

by David Zatz on

According to Allpar sources, the 2016 Ram will not look like the Laramie Limited, but will be “very nice,” with an improved appearance.

The 2016 refresh is expected to update the styling somewhat beyond the 2009 look, which has already been mildly updated. How much freedom the designers will have is unknown, since certain contours are dictated by cost — major body changes seem unlikely.


Patent applications suggest a possible split tailgate, and one would expect some concession to climbing into the bed, especially given Ford’s easily released step.

The trucks are key for Ram, and for Chrysler itself, being one of the company’s largest sellers. While GM’s mis-steps have benefitted Ram, it faces a formidable foe in Ford, which has more factories and a sometimes unreasonably loyal audience.
