2021 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition
Ten years since Ram became a standalone car brand, the automaker’s parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobile, is celebrating that milestone by introducing a special edition 1500 called the Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition.
The special edition Ram 1500 is the latest in a long line of limited-run trucks that the automaker has released this year. It’s based on the new Limited Longhorn trim that effectively takes place of the Laramie Longhorn.
New Leaks Give Us an Incredible Look at the Ram Rebel TRX’s Interior and Engine Bay
The 2021 Ram Rebel TRX has kept truck enthusiasts at the edge of their seats. With every leak that’s surfaced on the internet, the TRX just seems to look better every time. In all fairness, quite a bit is already known about the truck and it’s only a matter of time before we start spotting the production-version TRXs with minimum camouflage. For now, TFLoffroad has received a few images from an anonymous source, this time showing the cabin as well as the stuff under the hood. Are we excited? Hell yeah!
The Best Pickup Trucks for 2020
There’s no denying that pickup trucks are America’s favorite vehicles. Ford F-Series has consistently topped the sales charts for 42 consecutive years now. There are a lot of other automakers with such offerings as well. The segment is highly competitive and you can get confused with what to pick. There is a different variant or a different model altogether in every $1,000 bracket. To help you with this dilemma, we’ve compiled a list of 10 best pickup trucks, ranging from midsize trucks, to full-size, and to heavy-duty ones.
Ram had to keep up with Ford and Chevy, so the time came to give the Ram 1500 a very serious update. And, a serious update is exactly what it got. And, when we say full update, we mean it is all-new with a new frame, new grille, and a completely revised interior, among other things. The fifth-gen model brings together every major selling point the truck has ever had in the best way yet it’s lighter than ever. Even the EcoDiesel V-6 got an update to deliver more power and torque while the truck can even be had with a deployable front air dam and a mild-hybrid drive system. We could talk about the new Ram 1500 all day long, but that’s not why we’re here (you can read our full review for that.) instead, we’re here because we love the look of the new 1500 and decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. Check out our hand-picked favorite or choose from a full gallery of awesome shots.
2019 Ram 2500 Laramie Longhorn
Even though Ram is the newest member in the truck segment (if you don’t count the years "Ram" was a model under the Dodge umbrella), 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 is 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’ which was sold outside the United States. The 2019 Ram model sees a few changes. These trucks became an overnight sensation when Ram announced a 1,000 pound-foot of torque figure for the 3500 series. The Ram 2500 doesn’t boast that, but it still has a lot going in its favor to be deemed as a potent threat to the Blue Oval and the Bowtie.
Exclusive: Did a TopSpeed Reader Just Spot the Mythical Ramcharger?
Remember way back when in the 1970s when Dodge released a two-door SUV based on the Ram 1500 Pickup? Back then, that beast competed directly with the full-size Chevy Blazer and Ford Bronco, it came with fairly powerful V-8, four-wheel drive, and it even copied its competitors with a removable roof in the rear. Believe it or not, the Ramcharger stayed in production from 1974 to 2001, seeing two generational shifts in the process. The third generation, you’ve probably never seen, however, as it was only produced from 1999 to 2001 and was quickly killed off because, well, back then compact, fuel-efficient cars were all the craze. That model was also more modernized and lacked the tall, rugged body style of the models that preceded it.
Since then, consumers – or at least SUV fans – have begged Dodge (now Ram) to build a new three-row crossover based on the newest generation of RAM trucks. With Ford reintroducing the Bronco and Chevy the Blazer (the latter of which just doesn’t compare to the originals), it’s only appropriate that Ram finally gives in and builds a new three-row SUV that we believe will carry the iconic Ramcharger name. Up to this point, we have yet to see any prototype, let alone receive a confirmation. We took it upon ourselves a few years ago to commission a rendering and write a speculative review for a 2020 Ramcharger,->art179677] but the trail has been cold ever since. Well, until now, that is.
2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock
These days, custom pickup trucks are everywhere, with interested buyers offered a plethora of choices both from the aftermarket and straight from the factory. However, 40 years ago, it was far less common to get a bespoke aesthetic direct from the manufacturer. In that sense, the original Warlock pickup broke the mold, and now Ram is taking the nameplate off the shelf for a fresh special edition iteration of the 1500.
2020 Ram Chassis Cab Brings a New Generation of Work Trucks to Chicago
Ram’s latest generation of Heavy Duty truck is already a familiar site and needless to say, it has what it takes to compete with the newer Ford F-Series Super Duty and Chevrolet Silverado HD. At the Chicago Auto Show, the lineup grew bigger with the addition of the Chassis Cab model, which enables you to rebody the truck for many purposes.
The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC’s Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful
The more utility you can add to a pickup, the better it becomes. That’s a given, but how do you improve on the formula? It seems as though GMC found a way with its Multipro Tailgate and 2019 Sierra, which offers multiple configurations for improved access to the box, extended holding capacity, and a second-tier loading height. Now Ram is getting in on the action with its own take on the configurable tailgate concept, offering up something it’s calling the Multifunction Tailgate on all seven trim levels of the 2019 Ram 1500. Granted, GMC was the first in this space, but we think Ram might have the better tailgate this time around.
Why Does the Side Cargo Box on the 2020 Ram 2500 HD Have an Emergency Exit Latch? Who The Hell Would Get Stuck in There?
The new Dodge Ram 2500 Heavy Duty comes packed with cutting-edge tech and can tow more than its Ford and Chevy rivals. It also comes with two storage spaces on either side of the cargo bed. It’s not weird that you can lock these storage compartments up but what is weird is that they feature an emergency latch so Dodge thought that somebody could get stuck in there somehow.
Everybody’s been raving about the new Ram HD’s comprehensive offering of onboard safety systems as well as its top-of-the-line Cummins 6.7-liter diesel engine with 1,000 pound-feet of torque on tap. However, for this article, we’ll be looking at two narrow storage compartments placed above the wheels of the new Ram.
2019 Ram Heavy Duty Looks Menacing, Pumps out 1,000 Pound-Feet!
Thieves Drive Away With At Least 10 Ram Pickups in Cluster Vehicle Theft From FCA’s Warren Lot
FCA is out at least 10 Ram 1500 pickups after a whole band of thieves committed a cluster theft at the company’s Warren lot. It all started with the theft of one pickup truck from a driveway in the area. From there, a whole band of thieves loaded up into the truck bed and drove to the lot. Once there, they cut a hole in the fence, everyone offloaded, and before security even knew what was going on, they were staring at a convoy of brand-new 2018 Ram pickups driving away into the night, never to be seen again (well, so far, anyway)
It sounds a lot like a Gone in 60 Seconds type theft and, as reported by the Detroit Free Press, it’s actually far from being the first of its type. Warren Police Commissioner, Bill Dwyer, said that while it’s not unheard of, it’s very unusual for this kind of theft to include such a high number of vehicles stolen. He said there were likely at least 10 people in the bed of the initially stolen truck. It’s still unknown whether the thieves are targeting various parts of each truck or the trucks themselves, but it’s believed to be part of a mass order with buyers already lined up.
“All these things took days, weeks, months of planning," he said. "Once you get the vehicles, you’ve got to have a buyer. This definitely sounds like an order. Sounds like the kind of theft where they immediately could be taken to a port, put into a container and shipped offshore."
And, the worst part is that even if the trucks aren’t on their way to their illegitimate owners yet, FCA isn’t really working with police to solve the problem. The company obviously has to perform its own internal investigation and can’t even disclose if the keys were stored inside the stolen vehicles. This, in turn, is frustrating police who have yet to hear back from FCA amid the fact that there’s an ongoing investigation.
Warren police are offering up a reward of an undisclosed amount and, if you happen to have any information that can lead to the apprehension of those responsible for the theft, you should call 586-574-4800.
