How the Ram 2500 Has Evolved

Formerly known as Dodge Ram, the Ram pickup has been marketed under the Ram Trucks brand since 2010. First used in 1981, the Dodge Ram followed the Dodge D-series trucks and the B-series vans. The first generation ran from 1981-1993 and sported a Ram hood ornament that was first seen on Dodge trucks in 1933. Optional equipment on the Ram included a sliding rear cab window, cruise control, AC, and an AM/FM stereo with a cassette tape player.

The second generation ran from 1993 to 2001 or 2002 and saw a redesign for 1994. A new 8-L, 488 c.i. V10 engine was added for top pulling power for people who didn't want a diesel. A third generation (2001/02-2008) saw major revisions, including an all-new suspension, interior, and frame. The new technology was incorporated into third-generation models. Fourth generation Rams began in 2009 and continue on currently. The Ram Trucks name divorced from Dodge in 2010. The RamBox and a new hemi engine are among the newer renovations.
