Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 is one of the most dependable pickups in the world market under the pickup truck class. But this American-born brand didn’t used to be so independent. In fact, a century and a few decades ago, the Ram trucks we all know today bore the word “Dodge” before its name. In the 1930s, the images of actual rams were already used by Dodge on their trucks. After a few more years, the proud Ram brand now sits besides Jeep, Dodge, Maserati, and Alfa Romeo as one of the brands owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. It was in 2010 when Chrysler decided to group the vehicle types they manufactured and categorize them under the two brands Dodge and Ram. In the end, they decided that minivans and cars would go under the Dodge nameplate. The more muscular pickuo trucks, on the other hand, like the Dodge Dakota and the Dodge Ram were put under the Ram brand. As of now, Chrysler has given the Ram at least eight models. This includes the Ram 1500, the Ram 1500 Classic, the Ram 2500, and the Ram 3500, just to name a few. However, as of now, only the Ram 1500 is only made available in the Philippine market.
