Ram History

In the dawning of Dodge’s revolutionary mission to reinvest in the truck industry in 1981, Ram trucks as a namesake were officially put on the record. Ever since the former Dodge logo of a ram’s head has become its prevailing logo to this day.

In the years 1988 and 1989, Ram trucks introduced electron fuel injection and a brand new line of engines for their pickup trucks. This was also around the time the soon famous Cummins Turbodiesel engine would finally enter the automotive world in Ram trucks. In 1990, Dodge was even forced to increase availability since it became so desired by fans.

In 1994, Ram trucks got bigger, better, and even more rugged looking with brand new models, trims, and major redesigns. This is where the labels 1,500, 2,500, and 3,500 were first familiarized by this brand. As for trims, this was around the time the Work Special, LT, ST, and Laramie SLT levels were first introduced. Overall, it was a big year of celebration for Dodge Ram.

In October of 2009, Dodge and Ram decided to split, and in 2010 Ram was officially an established division of Chrysler. This development caused dedicated fans of Ram trucks to cry out in sadness and fear of the future. That fear was completely unwarranted though since Dodge and Ram still have a brilliant relationship, and they can both focus on what they are truly passionate about. Dodge handles innovative cars, while Ram will stay strong with trucks. In fact, 2015 and 2016 both Dodge and Ram were two of the best-selling companies.

Overall, the history of Ram trucks is truly respectable and shows great signs of future potential, passion, and quality in the field of powerful pickups.
