    The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX stole the performance show earlier this year when it was introduced with a supercharged Hemi that delivers 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.

    This morning, FCA issued the United States sales numbers for the third quarter of 2020 and like just about everything else in 2020, they are not good. Overall, the company is down 10% from the same period last year with Dodge, Jeep, Ram and Fiat all posting negative growth, but with the...

    I remember driving the original Rams when I was a CDPJ salesman in the 1990s. The diesels were LOUD! The original Dodge Ram looks TINY next to the current one. MSRP was $18,000 in 1994 ($31,725 in today’s dollars) for the original Ram; $71,000 for the 2020. Personally, I’d take the original...

    It seems like we have been talking about the return of the Dodge Dakota midsized pickup since it was discontinued after the 2011 model year. Shortly after production of the third generation Dakota – sold from 2009 through 2011 as a Ram model rather than a Dodge – there were rumors that FCA was...

    So I have been toying with idea of getting a new Jeep Gladiator or Ram 1500. With deals that are being offered, its kinda hard to resist :) I am looking at 2020 Ram Built to Serve edition in Gator Green, like the package overall but not happy that it does not have passive entry, the Big Horns...

    FCA announced earlier today that company design heads Ralph Gilles and Mark Trostle are challenging the world to an interesting design contest. As an offshoot of the Drive for Design contest, which is focusing on Ram pickups this year, Gilles and Trostle are asking for anyone with design...

    We once again had a chance to speak with a few of our contacts inside of FCA who are familiar with the Hellcat-powered Ram 1500 TRX Rebel. Last time we spoke with them, we learned that the supercharged pickup would offer somewhere in the 700-horsepower range and that it would look a great...

    There have been lots of discussions online as to what to expect when the Hellcat-powered Ram 1500 TRX came to market. FCA stated officially back in October 2019 that the Hellcat-powered pickup was approved for production, but that is the only official information on the high performance pickup...

    After years of wearing two hats — head of U.S./Canada sales and head of Ram (North America) — Reid Bigland is leaving the company. He has been at FCA for 22 years, and at one point was in charge of Canadian operations. The company’s stated reason for his leaving was “to pursue interests...

    Peugeot, in partnership with a Chinese company, has released specs and photos of its new pickup trucks. Running the same class as the current Mitsubishi L200 / Ram 1200 / Fiat Fullback (and the old Dodge Dakota), this pickup looks like a “lifestyle truck” but is designed for commercial use...

    Ram will be recalling fewer than 200 of its 2019 1500 pickups, because the electric power steering gear may short-circuit and intermittently drop power assistance. Dealers will replace the assembly at no cost starting in early January under FCA Recall VB8 (NHTSA 19V812). Trucks which might...

    When Fiat Chrysler needed a midsize pickup, they went back into the old Chrysler playbook and rebadged the Mitsubishi L200—otherwise known as the Ram 50. Nissan’s control of Mitsubishi, though, may have derailed that deal, though Fiat Fullbacks and Ram 1200s are still being sold for the time...

    Recently, Chevrolet announced that its new 3-liter, six-cylinder diesel engine, custom-designed for the job, would bring fuel economy of 23 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, to the Silverado.
