    A replacement for the Ram 1200 and Fiat Fullback is coming to Saltillo, Mexico — but who’s engineering it? Sergio Marchionne told reporters last month that it would be mostly Ram, but since then many have said he meant it would mostly be sold as a Ram. That doesn’t necessarily mean it will be...

    Analysis. For years, people speculated about why Ram was split from Dodge. The official explanation, accountability, never made much sense; nor did  “people call it a Ram anyway.” People call it a Charger, but there’s no Charger brand. For that matter, the SRT brand didn’t last long. For...

    A good deal of the styling of the 2019 Ram 1500 comes from the Hellcat-powered Ram Rebel TRX Concept unveiled at the 2016 State Fair of Texas. Could more from the TRX be coming? On the 2019 Ram 1500, the window on the rear doors has a kink in the bottom, just like the Rebel TRX Concept. The...

    Ram the brand needs a "one metric tonne" truck in its lineup, and that's why it will be built in Mexico on the company's pickup truck line, Sergio Marchionne said today. The Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO said Ram "needs a metric tonne truck for global use." A metric tonne is 200 lbs heavier...

    Ram had a good year, but how was it compared with everyone else? Let’s start with the eponymous pickup trucks, which are the vast bulk of Ram’s sales. US sales in 2017 totaled 500,723 pickups, around 11,000 more than in 2016 — a good result given that FCA’s US sales fell during the year...

    We’ve shown numerous spy shots of the 2019 Ram 1500 over the years, but now we have a good, clear, and sharp spy video from the folks at Real Fast Fotography. Several weeks ago, Allpar posted exclusive pictures of the all-new Ram 1500 (DT) which revealed, for the first time, Ram’s updated...

    Here’s a Ram 1500 caught by KGP Photography, testing out the split tailgate system Allpar reported on quite a while back. KGP wrote, “A few years ago,  Allpar.com  discovered Chrysler/Dodge/Ram patents for a multifunctional tailgate design that is split down the middle, allowing the tailgate...

    A big vertical screen, like the one in the Dodge Charger pursuit cars? It looks as though that’s one of the new additions to the 2019 Ram 1500 , based on the work of spy photographer Brian Williams of SpiedBilde. Although it could be two smaller screens, cleverly styled to look like one, the...

    A week after Allpar landed an exclusive photo of the 2019 Ram 1500, Automotive News and numerous other sources showed spy shots of a different Ram 1500. Allpar sources say the difference is in the headlights — the newer shot has conventional headlights, while Allpar’s image shows a higher-end...

    Were you wondering what the 2019 Ram 1500 looks like? We’ve gotten a sneak peek at the grille and interior of what appears to be a fairly high-end model, based on the real wood. That grille seems to be begging for a word in the middle — but isn’t it too large for “RAM”? Perhaps “Ram 1500” or...

    Allpar readers have asked when the 2018 Ram 1500 diesel option would be added to the ramtrucks.com Build & Price system. To answer that, we first verified that the Ram 1500 diesel has not started production yet; and it is still early in the 2018 model year. According to an FCA spokesman, the...

    The 2017 Ram Power Wagon has been refreshed, with a new grille, updated tailgate, and accents that reflect the 1979 and 1980 styling, popularized by Simon & Simon. The important parts remain — heavy duty off-road suspension parts, tough skid plates, 33-inch off-road tires. Under the bright...

    Not only was Ram the sole FCA brand to beat its U.S. October sales figures from 2015, it was a standout compared to the industry as a whole. In October, Ram volume rose nearly 12%. That's the most growth of any major automotive brand. In year-to-date (YTD) sales, Ram was also the growth...

    Automotive News' Larry Vellequette claimed this morning that Ram will built both new and old pickups when the 2019s come out, citing CFO Richard Palmer in a conference call. The company won’t be going hog-wild, though, producing 200,000 of the current pickup in 2018 and just 65,000 in 2019...

    Last month, the Ram pickup outsold the Chevy Silverado to take the No. 2 spot in the sales rankings.  Could history repeat itself when the October results are released tomorrow? The margin by which Ram won was small, 2,412 sales, and it took a 29% surge in Ram deliveries and a nearly 16% drop...
