Ram 2500, chassis-cab market shares

by David Zatz on

The market share for Ram 2500 has grown since the pickup has swapped out its industry-standard rear leaf springs for a Jeep-based link/coil suspension, said brand CEO Bob Hegbloom in an interview posted yesterday.

The market share of the Ram 2500, which is rarely discussed, grew from 20% to 24% from January 2014 to January 2015.

The chassis cabs’ (Ram 3500, 4500, and 5500, excluding ProMaster) market share was roughly 27%, according to Mr. Hegbloom, for class 3-5 chassis cabs. Chassis cab sales are reported by Ram along with pickup trucks.

Ram 2500 has been praised for its handling and ride, thanks to the link/coil setup, which has not compromised capacity (using SAE standard testing). The chassis cabs boast numerous upfitter-friendly features, such as having the wiring below the frame rails, and can be used as the basis for dump trucks, tow trucks, and other specialty vehicles.
