Dodge Ram

 

Firstly for Australian readers the Dodge Ram for many years has been talked about being imported into Australia direct by Chrysler. I can reflect this view vividly since 1998.

2011-2012 it seems with the segregation now of the Daimler brand from Chrysler this could happen in Australia.

As a alternative to the F250 this would have to be my pick. Its strong robust and will work  (towing or load).

Direct importers are the only supply route for this beast. Like the F series this dodge needs to be weighed up by the  purchaser on price landed in Australia. Again Lucky USA with a great array of this vehicle in all its forms readily available.

2011 Dodge Ram

2011 The Dodge ram shows styling changes but mainly its revision on economy and road comfort. The 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT offer a terrific package  that would truly be considered a alternative to the Ford F250

Previously...

The Motor shows of 2007 in Chicago and Los Angeles showed the new varieties of this model with 2 new types available for 2007- 2008.(engine sizes for 2008)

2009 Dodge Ram

Based on 4 terrific models the 2009 Ram ST 1500 quad 4x4 would be the ultimate alternative in the range. Its smart with a great offering of features. Limited edition models too like the two horns is great buying

Features

3 engines

4.7-Liter V8 Engine

5Speed Automatic 545RFE Trans

Electric Shift on the fly Part time Transfer case 205 mm Heavy duty front  axle corporate 9.25 Light duty rear axle

As a alternative to the Ford F250 this vehicle for most consumers worldwide would rate a mention.

History Of Dodge Ram

The Dodge Ram began life in 1981 so its history compared to the Ford F series is fairly recent.

Currently manufactured out of two plants in the USA and one in Mexico.

Originally the power Ram and the D model began as the  four wheel drive and two wheel drive respectfully.

The old saying possibly a urban myth is if you cant Dodge it Ram it began .

 

Briefly the 81-93 where built on a Dodge AD platform and appeared in a variety of engines. Automatic was the go for these.

For the Australian enthusiast amongst these engine varieties were the famous 225 Hemi and the 318 Chrysler that any person over the age of 40 will remember fondly we hope . relating to the old Valiant of the 60s and early 70s.

The redesign of the 1994 Dodge Ram bought it into a recognized design and the old style was revamped into a modern style of dodge pickup.

Engines here had developed and the V10 and Cummins diesel  improved the toughness of this now well established brand.

Talk about fore sight in 1995 the dodge Ram came with a factory natural gas engine,

It was as popular a pork chop and a Jewish  BBQ and only sold into fleets at the time.

The sales of this Dodge went through the roof in the mid to late 90s but started to fall by 2001.

The new model came onto the market with a bang and many features including suspension had now been redesigned.

Sales here started to boom in 2002-2004 but could not keep up with the Ford F150. Currently sales are stable and as mentioned earlier in 2009 the Dodge Ram is ready for another redesign.
