Rolling out new Ram pickupsJul 11, 2013
The folks at Chrysler have been hard at work in the past couple of years realigning products and retooling for the future. The Ram pickup group - don't call it Dodge - is working to keep building market share for its line of light- and heavy-duty pickups. In this gallery we'll break down information on the 2014 line-up. It's our first look at pickups for 2014 and we'll be featuring the new 2014 Chevrolet/GMC line and the new Fords soon.
Of course, we already provided you a sneak peek at the 2014 Chevrolet pickup from the National Farm Machinery Show - refresh your memory here.
As for Ram the big news is the industry's only light-duty pickup powered by a diesel engine. The company has developed a 3-liter EcoDiesel that's a $2,850 option to the base $24,200 light-duty pickup. Check out more details on that engine and other features in the images below.
On the heavy duty - or working truck side - the company will offer the largest displacement V-8 engine on the market. Base price for that machine is $29,600 plus destination charges. As for that engine - it's a 6.4-liter HEMI engine turning out 410 hp and 429 lb.-ft. of torque. Learn more from the images below.
And if you're looking for a chassis cab model, Ram meets your needs too with a full lineup from a 3500 with a GCWR up to 30,000 pounds, and max trailer weight to 22,750 lbs. up to a 5500 GCWR with up to 37,500 lbs. and max trailer weight up to 29,600 lbs. Learn more as you peruse the images in this gallery.
The new 2014 Ram 1500 will start showing up in showrooms in the fourth quarter.
