A Look Back at Dodge Ram

New Cars at All Star Dodge Ram near North County

Dodge Ram has been an integral part of the American landscape for a very long time. Today we want to take a quick look at the early history of the Dodge Ram. To become part of the long lineage of the Dodge Ram, get your own new cars at All Star Dodge Ram near North County.

The first-generation Ram trucks & vans introduced in 1981 featured a Ram hood ornament, first used on Dodge vehicles in 1933. Dodge kept the previous generation’s model designations: “D”, “B” or Ram indicated two-wheel drive while the “W” or Power Ram indicated four-wheel drive. Just like Ford, Dodge used 150 to indicate a one-half ton truck, 250 for a three-quarter ton truck, and 350 for one-ton truck. Standard cab, “Club” extended cab, and crew cab versions were offered along with 6.5 ft (2.0 m) and 8 ft (2.4 m) bed lengths and “Utiline” and “Sweptline” styled boxes. Externally, the first-generation Rams were facelifted versions of the previous generation Dodge D-Series pickups introduced in 1972. The new model introduced larger wraparound tail lamps, single rectangular headlamps, and squared-off body lines. Variously configured Slant-6 and V8 gasoline engines were available. The interior was updated and included a newer style bench seat, and a completely new dashboard and instrument cluster, with a three-pod design – a speedometer in the center, with the two side pods containing an ammeter on the top left, a temperature gauge bottom left, a fuel gauge on the top right and an oil pressure gauge bottom right. Models not having a full gauge package had only indicator lights in the place of the temperature and oil pressure gauges. (This information was compiled from dodge.com, ram.com, and edmonds.com.)

A Charger – Ram Truck Hybrid?

Dodge Charger at All Star near Clayton

The Dodge Charger is a nod to the classic age of muscle cars. It is powerful, it roars when you drive it, and it’s comfortable. The styling of this classic car is classic in a way that never goes out of style. There is just something about the Charger that makes you say, “Wow!” when you look at it. It is this classic styling that have some people saying that other models in the Dodge Ram family are starting to resemble the Charger. We certainly don’t hate the idea of this happening. One such model that this styling is reflected is the new Ram trucks that are set to come out in 2018. Let’s take a look at what we are talking about.

The Ram trucks look a little chunkier than the current trucks, with more shapes going on. That vertical bar dividing the grille got a whole lot fatter, too. And of course, the thing’s wearing requisite LED trim lights. The back actually looks a bit like a GMC, with those bracket taillights, but with the Ram Rebel’s whale shark mouth shape moved from the front to the tailgate.

A refreshed Ram truck, is expected to come out within the next year or so for the 2018 model year. What we don’t know is what, if any, changes will happen beyond the aesthetics teased at in these images. “That gives us a lot of time to have tweaks made to the design, so I guess I wouldn’t count on this as the final look for the next Ram truck. But I’ll take it as at least a strong suggestion.” -truckyeah.com

Since the refresh is still in the early stages, we are not sure exactly what the final model will look like. For more information on the different Ram trucks and on the Dodge Charger, head to All Star near Clayton today!

A More Rebellious Ram Rebel?

DETROIT MI/USA - JANUARY 12 2016: Dodge MOPAR RAM 1500 Rebel X at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), one of the most influential car shows in the world each year.

Ram 1500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Arnold

The Ram 1500 is a popular model and it is easy to see why. It is not too big, has a ton of towing capability, and is a comfortable ride. Driving the Ram 1500 is both a rugged and comfortable experience. No other truck, outside of Ram, can really make that claim. One thing that we have been wanting from Ram is a more rebellious Rebel, could it be coming? Let’s take a deeper look.

The Rebel can be fitted with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8, while the larger Power Wagon is equipped with the 6.4-liter V8. The supercharged 6.2-liter V8 (the Hellcat engine), as an engineer points out, makes sense in the concept. Ram had a clear vision in mind when it made the TRX – an extreme off-roader capable of hitting three-digit speeds on rough terrain – and utilized its extensive parts bin. Plus, it mixed in some parts from other brands in the FCA family, like the air-intake system from the Dodge Viper.

Therein lies the financial feasibility of the vehicle, which is the most important factor for an automaker when going from to production. “The concept, as pointed out by the engineer, only utilizes roughly 20 percent of same components as the Ram 1500 Rebel. That may seem like a small amount, but all of those components are the expensive things that take numerous years to perfect. The frame, for instance, comes from the standard Ram 1500 and the SRT powertrain is found in the highest-powered Dodge Chargers and Challengers.” -autoblog.com

For more information on the different Ram 1500 models, head to All Star near Arnold. Their team would be more than happy to get behind the wheel of a great Ram 1500 trim. It’s time that you hit the road in a great Ram truck!

Ram 1500 – An Insider Look

construction foreman worker is watching building works on site

Ram 1500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Chesterfield

We frequently talk about the amazing qualities of the Ram 1500 that is available at All Star Dodge Ram near Chesterfield, but every once in a while we like to get some feed back from someone who actually purchased a Ram 1500. We like to get their insider scoop as to why they bought this truck over others and what they like about it. Today we will share with you our conversation with a custom home builder who recently purchased a Ram 1500.

What lead you to buy a new truck, and more specifically, the Ram 1500?

-The truck I had was nearly 20 years old and had a lot of miles. I wanted something that I could take clients to see properties in and a truck that would make working on a job site easy. I needed to have room to store all of my tools in a safe place. The Ram 1500 that I bought has the crew cab, so I can shuttle clients around, and I have a hard locking case coming for the extended bed that I can lock; it basically makes my truck bed into a giant lock box.

Did you get the basic model or did you opt for some fun extras?

-I opted for the extras that I thought would make my clients more comfortable while in the truck and that would make my communications easier while I am driving. I have nicer fabric on the seats and one of the more advanced entertainment packages.

What made you want to buy a Ram 1500?

-My old truck was a Ram and I have found that Ram trucks last a long time and hold up to rough work. I plan on driving Ram trucks for as long as I have a license!

Ram Power Wagon Getting ‘Macho’

DETROIT MI/USA - JANUARY 14 2016: Dodge RAM 1500 Rebel truck grille at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), one of the most influential car shows in the world each year.

Ram Trucks at All Star Dodge Ram in MO

It is the time of year when the different auto manufacturers begin to leak information about what the next year’s models might look like and have in the way of features. Ram is no different. One such bit of information that was leaked was regarding the Power Wagon trim that will be available for the Ram truck models. This power wagon trim was designed for those who want to take their truck off road.

Upon seeing the sneak peeks of this truck, some have described it hearkens back to the 1979 “Macho” Power Wagon driven by Gerald McRaney’s character in the classic TV detective show “Simon and Simon.” This is apparently due to the graphics package, which do include some powerful looking vertical bedside stripes.

“Along with the vertical bedside stripes, the Power Wagon now sports a black, snout-like grille just like the one on the smaller Ram 1500 Rebel, black metal bumpers and front skid plate, and RAM lettering across the tailgate that’s big enough to read from space.”

“Standard seats feature synthetic upholstery embossed with the tread pattern from the Power Wagon’s 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, while leather is optional. The overall look of the interior is toughened up with iron grey metallic-painted trim.”

“The Power Wagon comes with a 410 hp 6.4-liter Hemi V8 under its bulging hood, Ram’s “articulink” front suspension with detachable sway bar for extreme off-roading, front and rear locking differentials, 14.3 inches of log-hopping ground clearance, and a 12,000-pound Warn winch with 125 feet of cable.”

This level of commitment on the part of Ram to put out such an impressive off-roading truck is great. It is nice to see this auto maker put out a vehicle that is designed for sport driving. For more information on the specs of the Power Wagon, head to the All Star Dodge Ram Dealer in MO.
