Ram to Release ‘Built to Serve’ Trucks, Inspired by First Responders

Friday, February 25th, 2022

Ram will be launching the second phase of its ‘Built to Serve’ pickup truck lineup. Inspired by first responders, these trucks will honor those who put their lives on the line to save and rescue others. First responders like police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel will be honored with this new lineup of pickups. They will come custom-made with exterior cues, interior upholstery, and profession-aiding features that all honor first responders. The Ram 1500 has served as a powerful and fully capable pickup capable of getting almost any job done. Now Ram will use its powerful pickup to help out those who give so much. We’ll dive in and see what first responders can expect from these pickups, but this is great recognition on Ram’s part. 

Ram ‘Built to Serve’ Lineup Announced 

Ram will be rolling out its all-new ‘Built to Serve’ lineup inspired by first responders. The pickup trucks will consist of materials and features that aid first responders like police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel. Ram has decided to honor those individuals who are always giving to others. These trucks will recognize their hard work and sacrifice to keep the general public safe and protected. About the new ‘Built to Serve’ lineup, Ram brand CEO Mike Koval Jr. said, 

“After honoring each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces with our initial Built to Serve models, we felt it would be equally important to also extend our gratitude to all first responders who serve or have served our communities,” said Mike Koval Jr. “Whether a first responder or civilian, Ram truck owners are very familiar with this adage as it’s something we strive to build into every truck and van we produce.”

Each truck in the ‘Built to Serve’ lineup will consist of a specialized trim geared toward the corresponding first responder department. They will come equipped with unique low-volume exterior paint colors that represent the MO and history of the pertaining department. The firefighter-inspired Ram 1500 Built to Serve edition will come available in Redline and Diamond Black exterior colors with a black interior and orange accent stitching. 

‘Built to Serve’ Interior 

Ram’s Built to Serve lineup will consist of unique exterior and interior features that represent each individual first responder department. The Ram 1500 Built to Serve trucks will feature a United States flag and a Built to Serve decal on each of the rear quarter panels. The truck’s exterior will also consist of an all-black grille with black bumpers, black-bezel premium lightning, and 20-inch aluminum wheels with a unique Technical Gray finish.  

Inside the Built to Serve trucks, first responders will note unique color stitching that matches the pertaining emergency service. The first installment will feature orange accent stitching but the following will match the particular department. The trucks will also feature Built to Serve-embroidered velcro panels on the front seats. There’s also velcro on the front seat inboard shoulder panel. This is for patches, tapes, and any special memorabilia special to the corresponding first responders. The front seat-back panels will also be covered with Pouch Attachment Laddy System/Modular Lightweight Load-bearing Equipment webbing to allow for special equipment. 

Ram’s ‘Built to Serve’ lineup will start at an MSRP of $46,625 (plus destination fee). The first installment will be the firefighter-inspired Ram 1500. These Built to Serve trucks will honor the three main emergency services for all their work. They will recognize and honor police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical service providers.

A Look at the Ram 2500 Power Wagon’s Best Features

Friday, February 11th, 2022
Ram-2500-power-wagon

Ram’s Power Wagon has been around for some time now. The off-road pickup first found its inspiration from World War 2 Dodge-produced trucks. Ever since its debut, the Power Wagon has been able to continue to make a name for itself as one of the most capable and efficient pickup trucks available. Although the name itself was discontinued in 1980 in favor of the Power Ram, the Power Wagon name was soon revived in 2010. Flash forward to today and the Power Wagon remains just as relevant as ever. We’ll go into detail about some of the best features of the 2022 Ram Power Wagon and why it stands as such a powerful and capable pickup.

Power Wagon’s 6.4L V8

One of the main features that give the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon its oomph’ is its 6.4L V8 Hemi engine. Ram ensured that the pickup would have the power and performance to take care of just about any job. The 6.4L V8 is capable of a respectable 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, Wagon owners are able to get an astounding tow capacity of up to 17,520 pounds. They’re also able to get another 4,010 pounds of payload in the truck bed. The Ram 2500 Power Wagon also features variable-cam timing, a fully electronic automatic transmission, and on-the-fly shift mapping. 

Power Wagon’s Gas-charged Monotube Shocks

Another key feature unique to the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is its monotube shocks. These come courtesy of the company Bilstein which utilizes their private facility in Nurburgring, Germany to produce some of the most capable shocks in the off-roading sector. The Power Wagon remains light and agile thanks to the suspension upgrades and gas-charged shocks. The powerful pickup also receives a larger carrying capacity while reducing uncontrolled movement. The shocks are also able to last longer thanks to their increased dampening power.

Power Wagon’s Front sway bar

In addition to its V8 engine and gas-charged shocks, the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon comes equipped with an electronically disconnecting front sway bar. This front sway bar drastically improves the Wagon’s off-road capabilities and maximizes articulation for the toughest of terrains. Typically used on 4x4s and off-roaders, this sway bar helps each wheel work independently of one another. This helps maintain contact with the ground when going off-road.

Power Wagon’s Warn Zeon-12 Winch

The 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon has one final feature that allows it to be such a powerful off-road pickup. This is the Warn Zeon-12 Winch which is a 12-volt winch that features a synthetic cable. This lightweight winch can pull up to 12,000 pounds with a single line. It also has over 80 feet of slack. Power Wagon owners will be happy to know that the Zeon-12 winch features a black powder-coated finish with stainless steel fasteners which helps reduce corrosion. For longevity, this is the optimal choice. Given all its features and capabilities, the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is a pickup unlike any other.

Amazon to Buy Thousands of Electric Ram ProMaster Vans

Friday, January 28th, 2022

Ram will be entering a purchase agreement with the e-commerce giant Amazon. According to information supplied by the online publication Inside EVs, Ram will be supplying Amazon with thousands of electric Ram ProMaster vans every year starting in 2024. Although Ram has not yet produced an electric ProMaster van, like many other automakers, it has been shifting its focus toward the blooming EV sector. Ram recently announced its plans for an electric Ram pickup, so we’ll have to keep our ears open for more information. This news about electric ProMasters is promising, however. Ram’s ProMaster vans have been updated for the 2022 model year, so they will serve as a good base for electrification. We’ll dive in further and see exactly what Ram plans to do in conjunction with Amazon.

Ram Partners with Amazon for Delivery Trucks

According to the online publication Inside EVs, Ram will be entering into a purchasing agreement with Amazon for electric Ram ProMaster Vans. As per the agreement, Amazon will be buying electric Ram ProMaster vans every year, starting in 2024. For many years, Amazon has been a dominating force in the e-commerce business. As demand for goods increases, so does the need for drivers and delivery vehicles. With the ongoing global climate crisis, however, many automakers have been looking toward electric vehicles as a way to reduce carbon emissions. If Ram is able to supply electric ProMaster vans to Amazon, this will greatly reduce overall carbon emissions. Inside EVs was able to find a very apt comment about the overall agreement. It reads,

“As part of a separate agreement with Stellantis, Amazon will be the first commercial customer for Stellantis’ new Ram ProMaster Battery Electric Vehicle launching in 2023. Stellantis, with input from Amazon, designed the vehicle with unique last-mile delivery features and Amazon will deploy the vehicle to routes across the United States. Building on the current relationship and as part of the long-term agreement, Stellantis and Amazon will be putting thousands of BEV ProMasters on the road every year.” 

This will be a great opportunity for Stellantis and Ram. The upcoming ProMaster van will be the brand’s first all-electric model. It is set to debut in the second half of 2023 as a rival to Ford’s E-Transit. Stellantis has not yet revealed any information about the electric ProMaster, but it will be based on the 2022 Ram ProMaster. Amazon will also equip the electric delivery vans with cloud computing services and in-car dashboard software. We’ll be waiting for more information, but so far this is exciting news for Ram.

Mopar Teases Potential New Ram Concept at 2021 SEMA Show

Thursday, October 14th, 2021

Ram has been making headlines with its Ram 1500 pickup. The pickup truck was recently awarded first place among light-duty pickups in a 2021 APEAL study. The pickup’s versatility, capability, and high performance have made it a top pick for pickup fans. Now for the 2022 model year, the Ram 1500 is once again generating excitement. It looks like Ram will be providing consumers with another Ram 1500 variant based on several teaser images revealed at the 2021 SEMA show. Each year the Speciality Equipment Market Association (SEMA) hosts the show, but it was canceled in 2020 due to Covid-19. This year the 2021 show will run November 2-5 in Las Vegas. It’s here where Mopar Performance will hopefully provide more information about their teaser images. Mopar works under the Stellantis umbrella so although it showcased Ram vehicles, it also showed off some cool Jeep concept images. We’re focusing on the Ram concept images however as they look to point toward either a special heavy-duty edition Ram 1500, or a more powerful variant, though the Ram 1500 TRX is a beast of a pickup already.

2021 SEMA Show Debuts Two Ram Concept Images

Mopar Performance will be showcasing several vehicle concept images at the 2021 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Three of these images depict a Jeep while the other two images showcase a Ram. Not much information can be discerned from the images as they’re taken in low lighting. The vehicles are also shown at side and rear angles which heightens their allure. In one of the first sketch images of the Ram pickup, the grille design and vent on the headlight can be seen. The Ram in question looks to be a 702 horsepower Hellcat-powered TRX. It’s unclear what Ram will improve or adjust for this new TRX, but the image shows blue-painted tow hooks and new badging. Perhaps Ram will improve off-road features and capabilities.

The second teaser image of the Ram 1500 pickup shows a rear backshot. The pickup is parked next to a tent and there looks to be a storage rack in the truck bed. The typical TRX text which is usually emblazoned on the rear fender is missing so it’s uncertain if this is a TRX trim. With teaser images, half the fun is guessing what new features or elements automakers will make. Given all the dirt being kicked up and the rear shot of what looks like a camp outing, the new Ram 1500 may be granted even more off-road capability. The nature of the SEMA show is to highlight new accessories and parts for Jeep and Ram vehicles, so not much should be expected. Still, pickup fans should pay close attention as there may be new concept images released. From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like Ram will have something special to debut in the months to come.

2021 Ram 1500 Ranks First Among Light-Duty Pickups in New APEAL Study

Friday, September 24th, 2021
Ram 1500 TRX

Ram has earned yet another accolade for its Ram 1500 pickup. According to the J.D. Power 2021 Automotive Performance Execution and Layout (APEAL) study, the 2021 Ram 1500 ranked first among light-duty pickups. This APEAL study uses consumer sentiment and feedback to gauge which vehicle is more favorable. Overall, the Dodge brand managed to rank first, the second year in a row. For Ram, the automaker took second place, also for the second year in a row. 2021 has been a great year for both automakers. Ram has seen much success with its Ram 1500 with several package options and trims being released like the 2022 Ram 1500 Backcountry. With consumer satisfaction at its highest, the automaker looks to continue to enjoy its success. 

Ram 1500 Ranks First Among Pickups

According to the 2021 APEAL study, the 2021 Ram 1500 ranked first among light-duty pickups. The high-performing pickup has dominated markets for a while now. In 2020 the pickup earned the same first-place ranking, thus solidifying it as an optimal pickup truck. The APEAL study gauges consumer satisfaction by looking at feedback during the first three months of ownership. Vehicle attributes like seating comfort, throttle response, and other key characteristics make up a score based on a 1,000 point scale. About their market success, the Stellantis Head of Customer Experience North America Mark Champine said,

“I said last year that we would keep the throttle wide open, and these various results demonstrate our continuing resolve to do so,” said Mark Champine. “We remain on a mission to do better for our customers, and we know we have more work to do.”

Mark Champine, Stellantis Head of Customer Experience North America

The APEAL study aggregates all the characteristics of each nominated vehicle and gives each a score out of 1,000. For the 2021 Ram 1500, the APEAL score totaled 881. This score was 10 points higher than the 2020 APEAL study which means Ram has managed to raise and solidify the Ram 1500’s status as a great pickup to own. Along with the APEAL score, Ram as a brand managed to place second within the automotive industry. This was a step up from last year as the automaker had placed third among mass markets brands.

The 2021 Ram 1500 has earned Ram a spot among the best automotive companies. The tough pickup managed to raise the automaker to the highest echelons with its high performance, tough durability, and iconic look. The Ram 1500 will continue to play a dominating role within the pickup truck sphere. As automakers move toward electric vehicles, we’ll have to see how consumer satisfaction and sentiment react to changes. It seems automakers have been split between moving toward new innovations like with Tesla’s Cybertruck and keeping to traditional aspects like with Ford’s F-150 Lightning. Either way, the consumers will have the power to choose. We will be looking forward to the 2022 APEAL study and its findings.

2022 Ram ProMaster Van Looks to be a Strong Competitor as a Transit Vehicle

Thursday, September 16th, 2021
Ram ProMaster

Ram has updated its ProMaster Van for the 2022 model year. The transit van has served as a utility vehicle carrying supplies, parts, and pieces for several years now. Ram has also utilized the ProMaster van as a traveling vehicle for bands. The transit vehicle offers a lot of versatility and function and now, Ram is making it even better. For the 2022 model year, Ram will be updating the transmission, interior cabin, and infotainment system of the transit van. Ram is hoping the 2022 ProMaster van will trump other transit vehicles like the Ford Transit. From the updates and new interior, it’s looking like the ProMaster will exceed expectations. 

2022 Ram ProMaster Receives Updates

Ram will be updating its ProMaster van for the 2022 model year. Although the transit van has proved to be a reliable and comfortable ride for drivers and passengers, Ram is making sure the riding experience sees several new improvements. For this, Ram is updating the 2022 Ram ProMaster van with a new nine-speed automatic transmission, a new interior look, the Uconnect 5 infotainment system, and some new safety features.

The 2022 Ram ProMaster van will use the same 3.6L V6 engine as the 2021 Ram ProMaster. Currently, the engine is capable of an impressive 280 horsepower and 352lb-ft of torque. With the addition of a new nine-speed automatic transmission, however, it will be much more efficient. Ram will be replacing the previous transmission with a TorqueFlite transmission which will deliver a better final-drive ratio. This will increase performance and pack a little more punch. Along with the new transmission is the addition of a push to start engine function. This comes alongside a push-button electric parking brake. One more helpful feature being added to the transit van is an electric rack and pinion power steering. This will improve fuel economy and aid steering assistance.

The 2022 Ram ProMaster van will also be getting a new interior look. The transit vehicle has a modern and stylish look that’s enhanced by sleek panels and digitized buttons. Leather-trimmed material and black two-tone color also add to the stylish look. For space, Ram will be offering a two-row crew van package that lets three people sit up front. This sets the ProMaster apart from other cargo vans as this additional space provides a lot more comfort for drivers and passengers. For entertainment, Ram ProMaster drivers can utilize the new Uconnect 5 system. A 10-inch touchscreen provides access to smartphone connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and driver-assist features.

The last bit of updates to the 2022 Ram ProMaster van are new driver-assist and safety features. These consist of cornering function, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, lane-keep assist, and a rear camera. These features provide drivers with the assurance that they are safe and secure on the road. Another advanced driver-assist feature is active driving assist which includes level 2 automated driving capability. This uses adaptive cruise control and can even manage the throttle and brakes. Drivers will also have access to a 360-degree side view camera that will help with blind spots. A release date for the 2022 Ram ProMaster van has not yet been confirmed, but the newly updated ProMaster van looks to be a very viable and comfortable transit vehicle, so much so that it seems other transit vehicles may have to look toward the ProMaster van for inspiration.

Ram to Update 2022 Lineup with Uconnect 5

Thursday, September 9th, 2021

Ram is bringing the award-winning Uconnect 5 infotainment system to its lineup. The automaker will be updating its 2022 lineup of pickup trucks and commercial vehicles with the new technology. The Uconnect 5 system will help deliver faster operating speeds, provide owners with new content, and give owners access to new convenient features like voice recognition. Ram is upgrading its latest vehicle models like the 2022 Ram 1500 with new technology that will aid consumers. This will also help future vehicles like the all-electric Ram pickup. As the automaker moves toward the future, it looks as though it will continue to provide its consumers with the toughest of vehicles and the latest features and technology.

Benefits of the Uconnect 5 System

Ram will be updating its 2022 pickups and commercial vehicles with the new Uconnect 5 system. This system will offer new convenience and connectivity services that will help keep Ram owners better engaged and informed while driving. Stellantis head of software business and product development Mamatha Charmarthi speaks further on the new capabilities of the Uconnect 5 system.

“A competitive advantage of our Uconnect 5 system lies in its ability to align with customer needs using personalization and unique content for each brand,” said Mamatha Chamarthi. “The features and user experience are tailor-made for Ram trucks and Ram commercial vehicles, and will continue to expand with the digitalization of mobility.”

Mamatha Charmarthi, Stellantis Head of Software Business and Product Development

The new Uconnect 5 system will offer more customization options for Ram pickup and commercial vehicle owners. Ram owners will be able to personalize their Uconnect home screen with their favorite apps and features. They will also be able to customize their cluster screen and head-up display to help provide information directly to them. If a Ram driver is towing a heavy load up a steep grade, for instance, they will be able to view and monitor the truck’s powertrain temperatures on their cluster screen. Additional customization options include the ability to create personal profiles. This will help commercial vehicle drivers who may share or switch positions with other drivers. Each driver will be able to customize their profile to match their preferred seat position, mirror placement, and music selection. 

Additional benefits of the new Uconnect 5 system include the ability to receive over-the-air updates, use voice recognition, and use the mobile Uconnect app. Over-the-air updates are part of a new feature that automakers have been installing in their new vehicles. Ram will be using the Uconnect 5 system to provide its drivers with Maps over the air and last-mile navigation. These two features will provide drivers with relevant map updates and provide walking directions to their vehicle. It will also enable vehicles to receive updates and notifications about new software updates and services. 

Voice recognition and use of the mobile Uconnect app will be enabled by the Uconnect 5 system. Ram owners will be able to communicate with their advanced voice recognition system to help with convenience. Finding nearby stores or rest stops will become much easier. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Alexa will be able to be used with the voice recognition system as well. The Uconnect mobile app will allow drivers to use their smartphones to start the engine, lock and unlock doors, and receive notifications. It will also allow drivers to use an assistance feature that will sense if a crash has taken place. Drivers will also have access to vehicle location and family driver alerts. Concerned parents will be able to monitor their child’s location and speed. With the new Uconnect 5 system, Ram owners will be able to have more control over their vehicle. This new feature makes it clear that Ram is prioritizing convenience and aiming to provide the best available for their consumers.

2022 Ram ProMaster Van Receives New Transmission and Technology

Thursday, September 2nd, 2021

Ram is bringing music to fans around the country with the return of the Ram BandVan. Ram first launched its BandVan program back in 2018 as a way to help up-and-coming artists and bands by supplying them with a ProMaster van. The automaker partnered with SiriusXM and Pandora to give fans an opportunity to hear their favorite bands live as they toured in the full-sized van. The Back to Live Tour will be launching with the Foo Fighters heading the first act. They will be traveling inside the 2022 Ram ProMaster Van which Ram has recently updated. The van features a new transmission and updated technology and safety features. Artists will be able to enjoy the comfortable and tuned-up BandVan as they travel the country touring.

New Technology Inside the ProMaster Van

The 2022 Ram ProMaster Van has gotten a new interior upgrade. Ram has updated the transmission, infotainment system, and safety features. Each van is powered by a transverse-mounted 3.6L V6 engine capable of 280 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque. The addition of a new nine-speed automatic transmission has allowed the front wheels to be utilized more. Ram has stated that this new automatic transmission will help improve fuel efficiency and deliver smoother gear changes. 

Aside from the transmission, Ram has upgraded the interior cabin of the 2022 ProMaster Van. The van’s center stack has been redesigned with a new 7.0-inch touchscreen. An optional 10-inch touchscreen is also available. The touchscreen systems feature Uconnect5 software which enables over-the-air updates. It also enables wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as Amazon Alexa voice assist. Additional upgrades include more charging ports, two USB and USB Type-C ports, and a 115-volt outlet. The 2022 Ram ProMaster Van also includes a revised center stack that features HVAC controls that replace older rotary knobs. A new panel of switches replaces hazard lights, traction control, and more. The steering wheel comes with more controls and the driver has a more modern instrument panel.

The last change to the 2022 ProMaster Van is a multitude of driver and safety assist technologies. The previous year’s model introduced new active safety features like automated emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring. Now, the full-sized van has a 360-degree camera, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, and lane-keeping assist. Bands and artists can rest easy knowing they’re safe on the road in the Ram BandVan. Ram hasn’t announced pricing for the 2022 ProMaster Van yet, but prices aren’t likely to be too much higher from previous years. The full-sized commercial van will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Ram BandVan Returns with Back to Live Tour

Thursday, August 26th, 2021
Ram Band Van

Ram is getting ready to relaunch its Ram BandVan program. Due to the global pandemic, most things have had to be canceled or postponed. Ram first initiated its BandVan program back in 2018 as a way to help emerging bands by providing them with a ProMaster BandVan. At the time, Ram partnered with SiriusXM and Pandora to give fans an opportunity to hear their favorite bands live. Ram had become the first automaker to offer SiriusXM with 360L and it was also the first to feature personalized stations powered by Pandora. Now all three companies are working together again to promote new and upcoming artists as well as iconic bands like the Foo Fighters. This fall, look out for the Ram BandVan as it crosses state lines bringing music everywhere it goes.

Ram is Hitting the Road

Ram is launching its Ram BandVan once again. The first group to be featured in the Back to Live Tour will be the Foo Fighters. They will be joined by Radkey. In addition to the Foo Fighters and Radkey, Ram will be supporting at least five other emerging artists. New content will be viewable at RamBandVan.com and on social media sites like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. The punk band Radkey will be the first act of the year. Speaking about the tour Radkey said,

“This has been a year like no other, and now to finally be back on the road rocking with fans in real life, is an incredible feeling,” said Radkey. “We are so thankful to Ram Truck, SiriusXM, and Pandora for our Ram BandVan, enabling us and fellow musicians alike to hit the road running and tour once again.”

Ram will be providing the touring artists with the ProMaster Ram BandVan. It will be equipped with SiriusXM so that the artists themselves can also enjoy a variety of ad-free music. Along with music, artists will be able to enjoy sports, talk, comedy, and other radio genres. The Back to Live Tour will use Ram’s recent ad campaign “Spotlight” with Dave Grohl as well as a feature-film documentary called “What Drives Us,” to start the musical journey off. Ram is excited to offer fans a return to normalcy. The automaker is also excited to help artists get on their feet and reconnect with their fans. As the vice president of Stellantis Marissa Hunter said,

“Our Ram BandVan program first launched in 2018 and we are thrilled to activate the next phase of the initiative to help support musicians doing what they love and bringing their fans the performances that they have missed,” said North America Stellantis Vice President Marissa Hunter. “As the brand that is ‘Built to Serve,’ we share mutual values of hard work and dedication with these talented artists, and it is our pleasure to provide them reliable, comfortable, and spacious ProMaster vans, supporting their careers and helping them to reconnect with friends and fans across the country.”
