2006 Dodge Rampage Concept

Ram hasn’t yet released any teaser images of the new Ram Dakota, but it’s certain to be a more conventional looking pickup than the 2006 Dodge Rampage Concept shown here.

Having sold more than 700,000 vehicles in the 2019 calendar year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Ram truck brand has suddenly become the eighth best-selling nameplate in the U.S. Though the Ram line includes a pair of commercial vans, most of that sales volume comes from full-size pickup trucks.  In fact, the big truck news for 2019 was Ram overtaking Chevrolet in large pickup truck sales for the first time ever.

2021 Ram 1500 TRX

Consumer Guide Automotive By Don Sikora II

After packing a sizable collection of facemasks and two squeeze bottles of hand sanitizer, we set off to drive Ram’s new off-road-ready TRX pickup at a socially distanced event near Lake Tahoe. Clearly, most of us would love to forget 2020, but if you are into high-performance off-road trucks, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX will definitely fall into the category of things you’ll be happy to remember.

Twenty years ago, it would have seemed inconceivable that Europe’s most storied luxury and performance automakers would have gotten into the SUV business. Yet, here we are–Alfa Romeo (Stelvio), Aston Martin (DBX), Bentley (Bentayga), Lamborghini (Urus), Maserati (Levante), Rolls-Royce (Cullinan) are all now in the truck game. Most shocking, perhaps, is that Ferrari will offer an SUV (Purosangue) for the 2022 model year. And of course, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche got into the SUV game (and profited big) years ago.
