The Dodge Dart’s rebirth is currently the talk of the auto world in concern of new vehicles that are coming out. The public attention is focused on seeing how well the car comes out and with the onslaught of advertisement towards its impending release, people aren’t really thinking about what’s next. Some keen eyes may have just spied what’s coming down the road after the Dart.
Allpar.com has a news story about a possible sighting for the new truck that Ram is planning. Someone has spotted and posted pictures of what may be the Ram 4500 out on a test drive on public roads. Ram has stated that they are planning to deal with the Ford and GM heavy-duty pickups that are coming out. Ram has already stated they are hoping to get a new truck out there, but it won’t be until a 2017/2018 time frame.
Allpar has a run down of the rumors about what may be features on the new Ram heavy-duty truck. One such feature will be an optional air suspension system. The system being quoted by an unnamed source as being “better than the on in the Grand Cherokee.” Another is something called the Long Hauler concept which will allow for higher capacity with a smoother ride.
Obviously nothing is for certain as of yet and this is all just assumptions, but it still an indicator of what may be coming soon. Definitely something for truck fans to start getting excited about.

Ram has been really prepping up the 2013 Ram 1500 to come out the gate strong. Not one to be outdone by the upcoming Dodge Dart, Ram wants to steal some spotlight. Pickuptrucks.com has a more detailed breakdown of just how Ram is making sure that the truck enthusiasts of the world will be looking their way when the new 1500 hits the streets.
The website quotes an interview with Bob Hegbloom, the director of Ram brand, in which he lists off the improvements being implemented into the new design. Many of these new tech upgrades are being made to improve things such as the pickup’s fuel economy in the way of a new Pentastar V-6 engine with an eight speed transmission. There’s also an extensive use of lightweight materials for this goal. It’s still going to be several months before Ram puts out the stats on the fuel economy to see if they can pull it off.
The new 1500 is expected to hit the dealerships this fall. No pricing has been announced as of yet but it hasn’t left truck drivers uninterested in speculating. The move to better efficiency is definitely a step in the right direction. The market is there for a truck, even the heavy duty models, with a lower initial investment and maintenance costs.
