Ram dealers want to return Dakota mid-size truckFebruary 14, 2020
Ram’s roadmap suggests a new mid-sized truck could be introduced soon. This will happen before 2022. Serial production of the new items will be launched at the same factory where the Jeep Gladiator is assembled.
Unlike Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, Toyota and Nissan, the model range of the American brand Ram does not have mid-size pickups. It is noteworthy that Ram dealerships very much want this situation to change and preferably in the shortest possible time.
Phil Bevens, chairman of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ National Dealership Council, which includes Ram, says he “wants to get a more compact truck from Ram.”
“Not everyone needs full-size trucks, such as the Ram 1500, 2500, etc. Not everyone needs a full-size truck. In an urban setting, a medium-sized truck would be useful to many. It would be crazy to not want this, ”Mr Bevens said.
According to Ram’s roadmap for 2018, a mid-size pickup truck is expected to appear before 2022. However, in this document there are no other details about the long-awaited news. Rumor has it that a smaller truck will be produced on the same assembly line in Toledo, Ohio, USA, as the current Jeep Gladiator mid-size truck. Jeep is also part of the Italian-American concern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
The latest mid-size truck from Ram was the Dakota, which lasted three generations on the market from 1987 to 2011 model years. The car was different from other delirium pickups in its style, thanks to which it looked like a smaller version of the larger 1500 pickup truck. For a while, it was the Dakota pickup truck that was very popular among medium-sized truck buyers.
Not so long ago, we wrote that the 11-meter pickup Dodge RAM put up for sale. Apparently, when designing, something obviously went wrong. Yes, and put it at a very inexpensive price.
