Ram, FCA donate to Texas Rangers

by David Zatz on

Ram and the FCA Foundation will once again donate $100,000 to the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum, less than a year after they provided a first $100,000.

The Texas Rangers, America’s oldest state law enforcement agency, are gearing up for the landmark 200th anniversary of their founding in 1823. The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco, Texas, is the official historical center of the Rangers.

Hank Whitman, retired Chief in the Texas Rangers and Chairman of the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum Board, was quoted as saying, “Ram has a reputation for dependability, capability and service that echoes the values of the Texas Rangers.”

Rangers are the only American lawmen to have served under five flags: Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the United States, Confederate Texas, and the U.S. again.

In addition to the improvements at the museum, a portion of the $100,000 is going towards the Texas Ranger Association Foundation’s scholarship program.


Ram sells nearly two-and-a-half times as many pickup trucks in Texas as it does in the next-highest volume state.  The Ram Lone Star edition accounts for nearly 40% of the company’s half-ton truck sales. Since the Lone Star’s debut, Ram has sold more than 230,000 of the Texas-only models.

Ram is the fastest-growing truck brand in Texas, with its share up 2.5 points over the last five years.
