Ram

The truck segment is arguably the most competitive one in the auto industry right now. Companies like Ford and Chevy are the veterans here, while the other two prominent players, GMC and Ram, are still trying to find their feet. Even though Ram is the newest member in the truck segment, it cannot be taken for granted. Given the kind of products it has in its portfolio, you will be surprised to know that the company is just nine years old. Ram is essentially a by-product of Dodge and a fully-owned subsidiary of the FCA. Don’t mistake it to be a rookie, or a newb by any means. The name might be new, but the company has been building trucks since the 1970s under the name ’Fargo trucks’ sold outside the United States. ‘Ram’ was formed in 2010 after Fiat acquired Chrysler. The company decided to make Dodge and Ram different entities; the former being exclusive to cars, while the latter would become a truck marque.

Pick Up Truck Drag Race: RAM 1500 TRX vs Ford ROUSH F-150

Pick Up Truck Drag Race: RAM 1500 TRX vs Ford ROUSH F-150

Two high-horsepower Pick-up Trucks go head to head. Can the lighter Ford F150 Roush match the RAM 1500 TRX’s savage Power?

What has the world come to? Just a decade ago, you wouldn’t think much of pick-up trucks in terms of straight-line acceleration. Sure, we’ve had things like the Ford Lightning or the GMC Syclone, but nowadays, you can buy a pick-up truck with well-over 600 and even 700 horsepower out the box. On today’s drag racing video from Sam CarLegion, we have a RAM 1500 TRX going up against a Ford F-150 Roush. The goal is simple – to find out who’s quicker at the quarter-mile.

Ram Comes Up With A New TRX ’Ignition’ Edition Along With A Couple Of Special Editions For The 1500

The TRX ‘Ignition’ Edition costs almost $25,000 more than the standard TRX and is limited to 875 examples

Ram has been quite active with facelifts, new trims, and special editions lately. It wasn’t too long ago when the company came out with G/T-spec models for the 1500 Laramie and Rebel trims and the 10th Anniversary Edition for the 1500 Limited trim. Not to mention, there were the ‘Built to Serve’ Edition 1500s that came out in five phases, with the latest one coming out earlier this year.

Now, the Ram introduced three new special edition trucks at the ongoing State Fair of Texas. One of the three is based on the Ram 1500 TRX and it is a homecoming of sorts for the truck as the automaker unveiled the TRX Concept five years back at the same event. The other two special editions are based on the Longhorn and the Limited trims. The changes on all three are purely aesthetic and come with no upgrades or updates under the hood.

Here are 10 fast non-electric pickup trucks that we’ve seen over the years

Trucks like the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, the GMC Hummer EV, etc. are all quicker than some of the famous supercars of this era. Although internal combustion-engined trucks aren’t known to be ‘fast’, there are a handful of them that could are quite agile. Doug DeMuro decided to list 10 such cool fast trucks, and we agree with every entry on this list.

A 1,000-Horsepower Ram TRX Runs Dangerously Close With the Lamborghini Huracan

A 1,000-Horsepower Ram TRX Runs Dangerously Close With the Lamborghini Huracan

The Ram 1500 TRX taking on the Lamborghini Huracan EVO and keeping up with it is a sight to behold!

The Ram 1500 TRX is primarily an off-road performance truck, but with specs like a supercharged V-8, 700+ horses, 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds, etc. there’s no reason why it shouldn’t hit the drag strip. So, Brooks from ‘DragTimes’ decided to have it go up against a Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD for a series of drag races. The EVO is obviously a lot more agile and suited to the track, but there’s a catch – the TRX isn’t stock. It puts out 1,000 horses; almost 30-percent more than its stock output! Which car do you have your money on?

RAM Believes Electric Trucks Shouldn't Come With Compromise

RAM Believes Electric Trucks Shouldn’t Come With Compromise

RAM’s EV will be built around its core values: Durability and Capability

Ram officially announced the electric 1500 a couple of weeks back without a whole lot of details. Ram’s parent company, Stellantis, celebrated an EV Day earlier this month wherein announced EVs from Dodge and Jeep, and of course, Ram. The 1500 EV’s production is slated to commence in 2024, but this could give it an edge over its rivals – which arrive earlier – as Ram can study the market better and come up with a well-rounded product right from the launch.

In fact, Ram also resonates with this and is confident of coming up with a truck that will be better than the Ford F-150 Lightning and the electric Chevy Silverado. The company’s brand marketing head noted that the electric 1500 won’t be a compromise. Well, if it’s arriving that late, we really hope it won’t in any aspect.

2021 Ram 1500 TRX - Driven

2021 Ram 1500 TRX - Driven

The Ram 1500 TRX can pamper you with its luxurious interior and make you wet your pants with its brutal on- and off-road performance at the same time

For very many years, the Ford F-150 Raptor was the only off-road standalone model you could get straight from the factory. Ram, however, decided to come up with a rival for it and announced its intention by coming up with a concept performance off-road truck in 2016 called the TRX. Pretty much everything we saw there made it to the production version as well.

Fast forward to 2020, Ram launched the TRX as a Raptor-killer by upping the ante in almost every single department. The TRX was introduced with a supercharged V-8 that makes over 700 horses, impressive off-road equipment and specs, and an uber-premium cabin. Given all the bells and whistles Ram offered, there was no way this was going to be an inexpensive truck. Ram priced it at $69,000 at launch in the ‘base’ form. At that time, it was clearly positioned above the Raptor as they both had a significant price difference.

While this is a truck that you definitely want, is this a truck that you actually need? A white 2021 Ram TRX arrived at TopSpeed and we find out the answer to that.

Ram’s Electric 1500 Pickup Will Arrive Late, But That Could Give It An Edge Over Ford and Chevy

Ram finally decides to throw its hat in the EV segment by announcing an electric 1500 pickup truck for 2024

After Ford brought in the F-150 Lightning and Chevy announced the electric Silverado, the only one remaining was Ram. Now, the Stellantis brand has also officially confirmed a battery-electric 1500 truck to take the three-way war to electrifying levels. The auto group celebrated an EV Day, wherein three of its brands – Dodge, Jeep, and Ram – had some big announcements. While Dodge stole the limelight with its Muscle EV news, Jeep and Ram tried to hog some attention with the Grand Cherokee 4xe and the 1500 BEV.

The Ram 1500 BEV is a long time away, with production slated to begin in 2024. But, it is still good news, and the automaker will hope to replicate its recent truck success in the EV arena, too.

2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition

Ram has introduced a special edition with more features to commemorate the 1500 Limited pickup truck’s 10th anniversary

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Ram brought luxuriousness to the pickup truck segment. Take the 1500, for instance. The higher trims are plush enough to put similarly priced sedans and SUVs to shame. This has even forced companies like Chevy and GMC, and Ford to up the ante and come up with premium offerings.

Ram knows this, too, and isn’t very modest about it. To commemorate the 1500 Limited truck, the epitome of luxuriousness in the Ram 1500 lineup, the automaker has introduced a new 10th Anniversary Edition. The way Ram hyped it, it seemed like the truck will wear a big sticker price; but, it comes at a premium of just $3,000 over the standard Limited model, which isn’t too bad.

Ram Trucks Not A Part Of The Newly-Formed Stellantis Group Anymore

This comes as quite a shocker given how well Ram was doing with its pickup trucks

The merger between FCA and PSA came to light in 2019 when both the groups announced their holy matrimony. A lot of regrouping was expected at this point and there were hushed talks about some brands receiving the ax doing rounds. The new group, called Stellantis, ended up retaining them, but as it turns out, one major brand is getting banished from the kingdom, and it’s none other than the pickup truck manufacturer, Ram.

What is the Cheapest Ram?

The least expensive vehicle currently in Ram’s stable is the ProMaster City Cargo Van. This multipurpose van caters to a variety of people and is one of the most versatile vans present in the market today. The ProMaster City retails from $24,500. Thanks to its small size, it can be easily maneuvered around town. Being a carrier at its core, it can haul up to 1,883 pounds and is offered with a cargo space of 131.7 cubic-feet. As for the trucks, the Ram 1500 is the cheapest vehicle Ram has to offer. It retails from $27,300 and can tow up to 10,620 pounds.

What is the Sportiest Ram?

The upcoming Ram Rebel TRX is the sportiest offering from Ram’s stable. It is based on the Ram 1500 truck, but is powered by the monstrous Hellcat engine that puts out over 700 horses. This V-8 mill can help tackle any terrain with the utmost ease. And, from the prototypes that we’ve seen, it is as sexy as a truck can get.

What is the Most Popular Ram?

The Ram 1500 is the most popular vehicle in the lineup. Pickup trucks make up for the majority of the sales volume for Ram. In fact, Ram recorded its best monthly sales figures to date in June 2019 after selling 75,227 examples.

What is the Most Expensive Ram?

The 2019 Ram 3500 Limited trim is the most expensive offering from Ram. It is priced at $66,200, and comes with a host of luxurious features that can put even high-end cars from premium automakers to shame. It is powered by a V-8 mill that makes 1,000 pound-feet of torque and can tow up to 35,100 pounds.

What is the Fastest Ram?

The Ram Rebel TRX is set to be the fastest truck in Ram’s lineup. There is no word on the official top speed and 0-60 time yet, but it is powered by the V-8 supercharged Hellcat mill that makes over 700 ponies. The same mill in the Dodge Charger takes 3.6 seconds to sprint to 60 mph from a standstill and tops out at 196 mph. The figures will lag behind on the Rebel TRX, obviously, but not by a huge margin.

Are Ram Cars Reliable?

Ram trucks are offered with a warranty of 5 years/100,000 miles, which sounds very assuring. But Repair Pal has given it a rating of 3.5 out of 5 and ranked it 23rd out of 32 automakers. The average repair cost for a Ram, according to the publication, is $946. Again, it boils down to personal experiences as we have heard good things from long-term owners as well.
