Ram debuted an ad at the Super Bowl last night featuring the appropriated words of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. If you haven’t seen it, it was bad and dumb, and has been derided pretty much across the board. But it’s not just the use of King’s words to sell trucks that got it wrong—it’s what the rest of…
The Super Bowl! It’s the big football game when all the brands try and make you feel deep feelings in hopes you’ll buy their dumb shit. I don’t want to speak for the man, but I’m guessing the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. wouldn’t have been a great fan, seeing as how he once said “the evils of capitalism are as real as…
At the Detroit Auto Show, I had the chance to talk with the director of Ram Truck Engineering, Rob Wichman, about the new 2019 Ram 1500. As there was a naked chassis just sitting on display, we got a close-up look at some of the nerdy bits of Ram’s new truck.
Check the clock. It may be time for Ram to finally give us the Hellcat-powered truck we don’t need or deserve, but that we want.
We’ve known that the new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck, called the “DT” platform, will get some significant design changes. But now we have a lot more info on what’s under the refreshed sheetmetal.
Few things are more hilarious and satisfying than seeing a vehicle do something outside of its intended use. Take pro drifter Chelsea DeNofa’s diesel pickup truck, for example. He drifts the truck, too. I mean, why not?
Combining the versatile body of a Jeep Wrangler with the beefy, Cummins-powered chassis of a Ram 2500 sounds like a brilliant idea. Maybe. But someone in New Jersey did just that, and the result is one of the strangest looking Jeeps I’ve ever seen.
Call it a guilty pleasure if you must, but there is just something about the second-generation Dodge Ram that won’t let my subconscious rest.
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!
