The previous generation Dodge Ram was a big success for the company and Dodge didn’t risk to made radical exterior changes for the 2002 model. Hence most of the upgrades were made under the skin.
The newer generation may look very close to its predecessor, but it comes with radically improved driving dynamics and technologies which helped the Ram stay in front of the pack. This major update included an all new frame, suspension, powertrains and interiors.
The third-generation Dodge Ram 1500 came with a choice of 3.7 liter V6, 4.7 liter V8 and 5.9 liter V8 engines. The redesigned Ram trucks revamped Dodge’s sales with 400,000 units sold in 2002 and nearly 450,000 sold in 2003.
