It’s a tale as old as time: man loves sweet new truck, man drives truck off a jump, relatively stock truck breaks on impact. Stock trucks really aren’t made to jump off dunes. Here’s another example of what happens when you try it anyway.
How do fistfuls of duck calls hold up to an 841-horsepower Corvette’s exhaust? What about the oversized pipes of a modified Ram 1500 truck, or a supercharger’s blow-off valve? Behold, all that is quack.
After the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today accused Fiat Chrysler of having “defeat devices” for emissions in diesel Jeep and Ram vehicles, company boss was adamant that Fiat Chrysler did not cheat like Volkswagen, calling such a claim “hogwash.” That may be a bit far, but after carefully examining…
Speaking with reporters following the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s allegation that diesel engines in Ram and Jeep models were cheating emissions, Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said the idea that his company intended to cheat was “unadulterated hogwash” and there’s “nothing in common between the VW…
In a conference call with reporters Thursday morning, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says an investigation has revealed that diesel V6 Jeep and Ram vehicles made between 2014 and 2016 have “at least eight auxiliary emission control devices” that were not disclosed to the agency—an allegation of cheating that…
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today accused Fiat Chrysler of violating the Clean Air Act by “failing to disclose engine management software” in the 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 trucks equipped with the 3.0-liter diesel V6 engine.
Citizens, be on high alert! We’ve just received word that certain brand-new Ram 1500 pickups that wear the Hemi badge might not actually have anything of the like under their hoods. A quick peek into the engine bay or a listen of the exhaust note should unmask these vile villains quickly.
Automotive law firm Hagens Berman has filed a class-action lawsuit against Ram Trucks parent company Fiat Chrysler and its diesel engine supplier Cummins, alleging that the companies collaborated to fraudulently under-report how much pollution heavy-duty pickup trucks were producing.
Stock pickup trucks are not strong enough to survive jumps. You know it, I know it, but some folks just need to learn these things for themselves. That’s when you just hope somebody’s standing around with a camera!
If you’re not familiar with the Nürburgring, it often doesn’t resemble rush-hour traffic in Texas. That made the sight of a bunch of Ram trucks understandably strange, but apparently these folks attempted a world record for “largest parade of pickup trucks.” Huh. What a way to spend a Saturday.
The next generation of the Ram 1500 half-ton pickup truck is expected to come out in early 2018, but apparently the company’s planning to continue selling the truck’s current design alongside the new one into 2019.
Leaked photos of teaser images of the next Ram truck’s front and rear ends have been circulating, and I finally realized what the headlight design reminds me of– it has the same LED accent-pincher as the current Dodge Charger.
This week Ram announced it will more than double its lineup of half-ton trucks in the Middle Eastern market while adding a completely new one: the Ram 1200. It’s a rebadged Mitsubishi L200/Triton Ram’s calling “a metric ton” pickup truck. Mitsubishi and (Fiat) Chrysler are at it again!
I saw this image on the OppositeTalk Facebook group, where it seems to have originated from a Canadian auction site. I’m sure anyone looking at this picture for more than a few seconds will see that there’s something deeply puzzling going on. The question is why? And maybe how?
One Canadian Chrysler dealer had dream: to cram a 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 into a Ram 1500 pickup truck. Yes, that’s 707 horsepower sent to a solid rear axle on something that isn’t a drag car. I have just one word for this dealer: hero.
The phrase “throwing spaghetti at a wall” refers to someone not knowing what path to take and frantically exhausting every option in an attempt to solve a particular issue, hoping something sticks. When applied to automakers, this action can either save or destroy a company that already may be on the edge of disaster.…
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just posted a picture of his Fast 8 character’s vehicle: a Ram truck on treads with what looks like a weaponized farm implement hanging off the back. Looks like the studio released a few more vehicle shots from the Icelandic snow scene as well.
The Ram Rebel is only a minor tweak on Chrysler’s popular four-door, short-bed, half-ton pickup truck platform, but it sure is a whole lot cooler. At least Chrysler hopes you think so. And in a few decades, you probably will.
