Ram’s new logo?

by David Zatz on

Inside the Ram Rebel TRX offroad concept truck was an unsung, unstated change — a new logo on the steering wheel. It’s still a Ram, but it’s sharper, a little more stylized, and more forceful in its look.

RedRiderBob also spotted it, in harsh relief, in an image of a prototype next-generation Ram grille.

Dodge and now Ram have changed the logo numerous times since it was launched around 1929, with 1940s and 1990s versions being heavily stylized.  The new design throws the symbol into harsh relief, emphasizing the outline with sharp bevels.

Allpar has traced the lineage of Dodge and Ram logos and hood ornaments.
