Ram News

Ram Trucks was established as its own distinct brand by Chrysler in 2009 when operations of the automaker were taken over by Fiat. Ram-badged trucks have been competing in the American pickup market since 1981, and, before adopting the Ram name, had been sold under the D Series label since 1928. The marque gets its name from the ram head emblem that has been on Dodge vehicles since the 1930s, and all Ram products still feature Dodge logos inside and out. Ram Trucks currently offers the Dakota mid-size pickup and the full-size Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500, as well as various heavy-duty chassis cabs.

    Video: Motorcyclist attacked by grumpy ram
    1376332380

    My cat Prytania is an enigma. Some days she'll sleep all morning and afternoon, and not make a single peep. Other days, she'll get so irritated if I haven't let her outside first thing in the morning that she'll make a claws-out attack on my feet as I walk by her. Who can truly know the mind of an animal? For a more dramatic version of human/animal ...

    1375804620

    Enough Is Enough. Finally. Not long ago, the efforts of an automaker to put a six-cylinder engine into a pickup truck went something like this: take the basic bread-and-butter V8, lop two cylinders off one end of the block and call it a day. The resulting engines were generally pretty rough around the edges, and while they were able to churn out ...
