More Aussie Ram news: Cummins pickups coming

by David Zatz on

CustomsToday has reported that Ram pickups with the 6.7 liter Cummins  diesel or 6.4 liter Chrysler Hemi are indeed being imported to Fiat Chrysler Australia, through the efforts of an independent company licensed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

Ram pickup trucks are being sent to both Australia and New Zealand, with exclusive rights to convert and sell coming through a business owned by former FCA executive Clyde Campbell and  Ateco Automotive owner Nevill Crichton.  The actual, official Australian FCA division is not officially involved but reported its support of the program.

The Ram is being converted to right hand drive in Australia, most likely through Walkinshaw, which imports Tata vehicles and is the parent of HSV.  The first trucks to be imported will be the Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 pickups. The Ram 1500 might be handled by FCA Australia itself. (Thanks, patfromigh)
