PostHeaderIcon Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition

RAM’s penchant for rolling out special edition trucks has paved the way for the truck brand to introduce a new run of special edition models that pay tribute to the five branches of the United States military. The special edition trucks fall under the RAM 1500 Built To Serve Edition name. Each of the five armed services — Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Marines — will receive their own special edition treatment. It’s unclear which of the five will get rolled out first, but the specific launches will take place every three months, beginning next week when the truck brand hosts its own Veterans Day celebration on November 11.

Aftermarket companies love SEMA. It is the one hot spot that garners attention from all over the world and allows aftermarket companies to highlight their creations without worrying about automakers stealing the limelight. Mopar, one of the biggest aftermarket parts suppliers (and one that is backed by Dodge,) is gracing the show with its presence. The company has worked on two trucks, one being the Dodge Lowliner Concept, and the other one, the Ram Rebel 1500 OTG. OTG, by the way, stands for Off The Grid. Unlike the Lowliner, the Rebel 1500 OTG is a practical concept and could very well make its way into production. Will Ram consider making it a mainstream model?

Ram sure knows how to keep its product portfolio active. Lately, a lot of our attention has been on the 2020 Ram 1500, which comes with the third-gen EcoDiesel engine and also created a record of sorts by claiming the Top Safety Pick+ award. Logically, this would mean a drop in the sales for the 2019 model. However, Ram is keeping the 2019 1500 active by launching new packages and special editions of the truck. This time, we get the new Mojave Sand Package that’s offered on the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock. The truck comes with a host of aesthetic changes to distinguish it from the standard Ram 1500. But, is it worth buying?

PostHeaderIcon Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition

The 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition is a limited-edition version of the latest-generation Ram 1500 pickup truck. Based on the range-topping Limited trim, the Black Edition is exactly what the name suggests. It’s painted black, it features body-colored bumpers, and replaces all chrome trim with black inserts. It’s probably the meanest Ram 1500 you can buy aside from the Rebel. What’s more, it combines both sportiness and luxury, something the Rebel trim can’t offer. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

The 2020 Ram Heavy Duty Night Edition is a special-edition version of the current line of Ram Heavy Duty haulers. Available on the Big Horn and Laramie trims, the Night Edition enhances the personalization potential of this popular truck. Unveiled alongside the 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition, the Heavy Duty Night Edition goes on sale in the fourth quarter of 2019.

PostHeaderIcon The Ram 1500 Is Officially The First Full Size Pickup to Earn an IIHS Top Safety Pick + Rating

Ram is on a roll these days. The company recently unveiled the third-gen EcoDiesel engine and it has put the competition under pressure. As if that wasn’t enough to attract customers, the Ram 1500 has now won the IIHS’s (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) most coveted award – Top Safety Pick+ – making it the first full-size pickup truck to be conferred with this rating. With the way the automaker is rolling, can it do anything wrong at all?

PostHeaderIcon Ram’s New EcoDiesel Engine Undercuts The Price of The Competition While Claiming The Top-Spot In The Towing Department

Don’t you fret, diesel engine fans. Even if EVs are taking the industry by storm, oil burners are here to stay; at least when it comes to pickup trucks. Companies in this segment generally tend to have many diesel engine options and from the looks of it, there’s no stopping yet. On that note, Ram has launched its third-gen EcoDiesel engine in the 2020 Ram 1500 pickup trucks. This engine will be available across the stable in all configurations, but does it get any better than the second-generation EcoDiesel?

PostHeaderIcon RAM Got Caught Pushing the Hellcat-Powered Rebel TRX Across Sand Dunes

Ram was one of the first automakers to venture into the performance pick-up truck niche. Back when trucks were used for hauling cargo and were meant solely for utility, Ram decided to do something different and create a segment that perhaps didn’t even exist. Nevertheless, it intrigued the minds of enthusiasts, which in turn created an avenue for other automakers to throw in their hat and see how they fared. Fast-forward to 2019, and we can see Ram pushing its Rebel TRX through the sand dunes in this video.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Ram 2500 Laramie Longhorn

There was a time when we had either work trucks or semi-luxury trucks, but those times have long past. Today, you can have really nice daily driver trucks, work trucks that are nice enough to double as family vehicles, and American trucks packed so full of luxury that you would swear they came straight from Germany. The 2019 Ram Laramie Longhorn is a vehicle that bridges the gap between all segments and lays down proof that you can have plenty of luxury and a workhorse at the same time. When it drinks gasoline, it can deliver as much as 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque while the diesel sucker can pump out 370 horsepower but a whopping 850 pound-feet of torque. That torque figure isn’t groundbreaking or segment-leading, but it’s enough to give this truck the balls to do just about anything you’d like it to do. On top of that, it has all the luxurious niceties you’d expect from a high-end vehicle, including plenty of chrome, loads of tech, and fine leather. It doesn’t come cheap, but we have these great wallpapers that you can have for free. We’ve posted our favorite down below, but if you want to browse through the whole selection, then you can find those at the bottom of the page.

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.

PostHeaderIcon 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.

The 145th Kentucky Derby is coming up on May 4th, and Ram is celebrating with the release of a fresh limited run of its popular Heavy Duty truck. Making its big debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show, the new special-edition workhorse gets a few unique exterior styling bits, extra interior comfort-enhancers, and a raft of standard gear to make hauling your four-legged investments even easier.

The battle of the trucks is never-ending. We have seen multiple players step in the ring, but none of them could get anywhere close to the products with the Blue Oval logo slapped on them. Ram trucks fall under the same category. These trucks have been a victim to Ford’s dominance for as long as one can remember. In all fairness, Ram is still a baby. The company was spun-off from the Dodge brand in 2010 and is owned by FCA. Even though the company is not as mature and experienced as the Chevy and the Ford, Ram sure has learned how to create quality products that can give the rivals a run for their money. For the 2019 model year, Ram decided to drop a bomb and declare war on the competition by launching a truck with four-digit torque figures! Can things get any crazier?

The 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty by Mopar is a concept truck that showcases Mopar’s new line of accessories for FCA’s latest heavy-duty workhorse. Unveiled at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, it previews already available and upcoming accessories from this iconic customization brand.

The Ram 2500 Heavy Duty is a brand-new truck for the 2020 model year. Unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, it arrived just a month ahead of the redesigned Chevrolet Silverado HD and the facelifted Ford F-Series Super Duty. For the time being, the Ram Heavy Duty is the only truck of its kind offered with factory-installed accessories, a valuable advantage until Chevy and Ford roll out their out features.

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.

PostHeaderIcon The Mopar-modified 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Has Everything That You Can Ask For In A Truck

Mopar has laid its hands on the 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty and has given prospective buyers one more reason to buy this truck as soon as it launches. Actually 170 reasons. Mopar debuted the modified 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty truck at the Chicago Auto Show and results are nothing but phenomenal. Mopar offers 170 aftermarket parts for the truck, ranging from lights, to trailer cameras. You name it, and Mopar has it.

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.

PostHeaderIcon 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.

PostHeaderIcon Is RAM About to One-Up GMC’s MultiPro Tailgate With Something Even Better at the Chicago Auto Show?

RAM and GMC have been engaged in friendly bantering over the Twittersphere in the last couple of days, in part due to the latter’s new six-function MultiPro tailgate that’s available on the GMC Sierra. Well, as with Twitter beef goes, RAM is preparing its response to the MultiPro tailgate with the promise of a big reveal on February 7, 2019. What’s so special about that day? It’s the first media day of the 2019 Chicago Auto Show where RAM is expected to unveil its own state-of-the-art, too-clever-for-your-own-good tailgate technology. The full details of RAM’s “new” tailgate are still unclear, but the automaker is confident that it can upstage GMC’s new trick tailgate in front of the entire automotive world. Battle lines are drawn as we wait for RAM’s salvo in two days.
