Future Ram Truck Spotted?

With Fiat now having the controlling decisions in anything happening to their brands, Ram has had a question of what they will be trying to do in the future.  The influence of the European automaker can be seen blending into various models across the Chrysler family.  So far, that hasn’t really happened to any Ram trucks.  Spy photos of a mysterious prototype, however, seem to show the first combination of the companies.

Pickuptrucks.com has photos of what looks to be a new pickup being tested by Chrysler engineers.  Unlike most spy photos however, this prototype has gone to great lengths to mask its overall look.  Still, no matter how much extra is put on top of the body, it is clear that this is meant to be a new truck.

The spy who took the photos commented that they believe it appears to be based on the Fiat Strada pickup.  They say the headlights are “dead ringers for the headlights found on the Fiat Strada pickup.”  The speculation here is that this new truck could be the Fiat Strada with a Ram grille added to it.

Wild speculation is all that can really be done here.  Until more is known, this is just going to be a weird blocky black truck driving around.

Ram Diesel Engine Has High Demand

The move to diesel has been a popular one for Chrysler.  The reason for adding on a diesel engine option was largely due to the demand from consumers.  The addition seems to be paying off for Ram trucks as the demand seems to justify increasing the supply.

Chrysler has sent word to its supplier in Italy to send them more of the V-6 EcoDiesel engines.  It seems that people are not just asking for Ram to provide a diesel option, they are actually buying them as well.  It is refreshing to see that the consumer is wanting something and then going out and buying it rather than patting the company on the back and saying “well, thanks for doing that, I’ll think about getting it now.”

The diesel engine in the Ram full-sized pickups offers better towing and fuel economy than a gas engine.  If you are interested in learning more about the EcoDiesel engine, contact us at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge.  View our new and used line-up on our website.  Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to see more truck news and our special monthly offers.
