The Ram Truck Division of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles US LLC is the spin-off of what used to be Dodge trucks. With a long, storied history dating back over a century, the brand has built its reputation with tough performing trucks including the legendary Dodge Power Wagon. Spun off as a separate truck operation in 2010 under the Ram badge, the division offers a complete range of pickup trucks based on body-on-frame architecture that provides a high level of payload and towing capability. Ram also produces commercial vans and cab/chassis trucks.
Ram1500Classic: Aimed at entry-level and commercial buyers, the Ram 1500 Classic is a continuation of the previous-generation Ram 1500 pickup. Known by the prominent crosshairs in the center of the grille, it is available in 2- or 4-wheel-drive, three cabs and three bed lengths. Three powertrains are available including a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6.
Ram1500: Against the competition, the new Ram 1500 more than holds its own. Far more modern than most of the others, it uses an independent rear suspension instead of a traditional solid axle. Ram 1500 is offered with a choice of V6, V8 and diesel engines. The workhorse is a 5.7-liter Hemi V8, with 8-speed transmission. A fuel-saving eTorque mild hybrid, which builds an electric motor assist into the transmission is available on the 5.7-liter V8 as well as the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, which is the base powertrain. An all-new 3.0-liter diesel V6 that pumps out 480 lb-ft of torque is also an option. Three cabs, ranging from Regular, Quad and Crew Cab, along with three bed sizes and interiors that rival some luxury cars round out the lineup.
Ram2500: Ram's heavy-duty 2500 adds more payload and towing capability above the half-ton 1500 model. There's a choice of two engines: a 6.4-liter gas V8 and a 6.7-liter turbodiesel inline 6-cylinder, both backed by an 8-speed automatic transmission. Maximum towing capability is 19,370 pounds while the payload maxes out at 4,520 pounds. Choose from the Crew, Mega and Regular Cab.
Ram3500: The most capable pickup in the Ram range is the one-ton Ram 3500. Powertrains include a 6.4-liter V8 or 6.7-liter turbodiesel inline 6-cylinder. The 8-speed automatic transmission is here as well, and so are the various sized beds. The innovative RamBox system offers integrated bedside storage bins, while at the same time accommodating 4x8 sheets of plywood. The Ram 3500 tops out towing and cargo capabilities at 35,100 and 7,680 pounds, respectively.
RamProMasterVan: The RAM ProMaster Van is a capable front-wheel drive work van with improved front traction and a lower floor. Available in standard and high-roof versions, it is powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 making 280 horsepower. The work van and Window Van (which can be fitted with seats) feature a tight turning radius and ease of operation especially in city situations. Able to be upfitted to suit the needs of your job or business, the possibilities are only limited by your bank account.
RamProMasterCity: The little brother of the ProMaster Van, the ProMaster City is built to work on a smaller scale. Perfect for daily runs through the city, it is completely customizable to suit your work needs. Power comes from the Ram 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder and a 9-speed automatic transmission. Big windows and windshield give you good visibility while around the town and are a huge plus in urban delivery situations.
Ram is the truck-specific brand within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), distinguished by big and burly machines that are as at home on the ranch as they are on the road. The Ram 1500, Ram 2500, and Ram 3500 pickup trucks are the most popular models, but Ram also sells ProMaster and ProMaster City commercial vans in both cargo and passenger configurations.
