    About Dodge Ram


    The Dodge Ram is a full-size pickup truck produced by the Chrysler Group LLC since 1981, when the first generation Dodge Ram made its debut as the face-lifted version of the Dodge D Series pickup truck, presented in 1972. The 'D' or Ram designation indicated two-wheel drive, while the Power Ram or 'W' identified four-wheel drive. The Ram truck was called after the Ram hood ornament that was used to grace Dodge vehicles in the 1930's. Based on the Chrysler AD platform, the Dodge Ram was available as a 2-door standard or extended cab, as well as a 4-door crew cab. The club cab configuration came later and was offered with fold-out jump seats. The engines range included 3.9L V6 engine, 5.2L and 5.9L V8 engines with 3- or 4-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission.

    The Dodge Ram parts and design were redesigned for the 1994 model year. The second generation styling and accessories were changed according to the design concepts of the chief designer Philip E. Payne. The unique design offered the look of a big rig truck, including a rig-looking front end and large grille. The interior design was focused on storage accessories, specifically large glove-box, additional storage room behind the seat, and extra armrest storage area. The dashboard and instrument cluster were also redesigned. In 1998 they introduced the quard cab with smaller back suicide doors. There were produced the following models: the Ram 1500, Ram 2500, and Ram 3500 in both two and four wheel drive. The engines option included the previous generation engines along with the new 8.0L V10 engine, offered as an alternative to the powerful 5.9L I6 diesel engine. The Dodge Ram had a variety of axles. The unique ones were the front solid axles of 2500 and 3500 Rams as they lacked locking hubs, though included the center axle disconnect. Yet later, the Dodge used permanently locked in front axles.

    The updated version of the third generation Dodge Ram was presented in 2002. The major update consisted of a redesigned frame, updated power-train parts, suspension, and interior. The crew cab models were extended cab trucks with conventional-opening rear doors. Unlike the 2500 and 3500 Rams, the 1500 light trucks featured independent front suspension instead of live axles. The year 2006 was marked by the fact that there was introduced the first mega cab, featuring the advanced multi-displacement system Hemi V8 engine, which increased fuel economy. The fourth generation was on sale as the Dodge Ram 1500 since 2008. The Dodge offered a new 4-door cab style, new Rambox, Hemi engine option, new suspension, as well as the innovative storage system. The engines choice included 5.7L Hemi V8 engine with 390 hp, 4.7L V8 engine with 310 hp, and 3.7L V6 engine with 215 hp. The V8 engines were paired with 5-speed automatic transmission, while the V6 had 4-speed automatic. The safety features were ABS, anti-skid system, traction control, and side curtain airbags, all included into the list of standard Dodge Ram parts. The Dodge Ram1500 was awarded as Truck of Texas, Luxury Truck of the Year and a Consumer Digest Best Buy. Dodge Ram was also named Truck of the Year by Motor Trend magazine in 1994, 2003 and 2010.
