The Ram pickup (previously the Dodge Ram pickup) is a full-size pickup truck produced by FCA US LLC (earlier Chrysler Group LLC) and marketed of 2010 onwards under the Ram Trucks brand. The current fifth-generation Ram was launched in 2018 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.
Before, Ram was part of the Dodge family of light trucks. The title Ram was originally used in 1981 model year Dodge Trucks, following the rebadging of the Dodge D Series pickup vehicles as well as B-series vans.
The Ram 1500 is available in seven trims: the base Tradesman, HFE, Big Horn, Rebel, Laramie, Long Horn, and Limited. All come equipped with the coil-spring rear suspension and eTorque system, neither of which is met in the half-ton pickup class.
Many trims come by default with a 3.6-liter V6 engine (305 hp, 269 lb-ft) with the eTorque system, and they can be optioned up to a 5.7-liter V8 engine (395 hp, 410 lb-ft) with or without eTorque. The V8 is available on Laramie, Long Horn, and Limited models. The new diesel powertrain(260 hp, 480 lb-ft) is also available on each trim level, without the HFE, which is only possible in the quad cab body style with the gasoline V6 engine and rear-wheel drive. An eight-speed automatic transmission is paired with each engine.
