In 2009, RAM stood alone and divided from Fiat Chrysler Australia (FCA) and emerged as an ideal solution for Australians high capacity towing needs, and stability and safety not available for smaller capacity vehicles.
Both the RAM 2500 and 3500 models are solely distributed in the Australian market via American Special Vehicles (ASV). These ASV-produced trucks are fully compliant with Australian design Rules.
All versions are powered by Cummins 6.7-litre straight six-cylinder turbo diesel engine that produces a 276 kW and 1084 Nm of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with gear preselector. Additional features include twin-mode exhaust brakes, switched chassis electronics with a tow/haul mode, factory-fitted controls for separate trailer brakes and a standard towing hitch, as well as a spacious six-foot four-inch tray.
For the first time, the lineup includes the innovative RamBox storage system that utilizes wasted space in most utes and turns it into a flexible, easily accessible versatile and secure storage box.
The RamBoxes come equipped with drain holes so they may be used as cool storage with ice and space for up to 140 drink cans on either side. But not only does this beast hold your cold ones with the boys, the space unit is large enough to hold items including a set of golf clubs, fishing rods, chainsaws, helmets, toolboxes or kayak paddles.
This system also includes a lockable and adjustable bed divider that creates individual compartments and can separate and secure your payload equipment, such as tools.
Just to emphasize the sheer size of the interior of the RAM Laramie truck, the 2017 model gains a second microphone for the standard Bluetooth hands-free system so both the driver and front-seat passenger have their one microphones in the roof lining above their heads to improve voice clarity.
The 2017 RAM truck will also be quitter due to the noise reducing tyre size and type with Nezan Roadian AT Pro RA8 18 fitted as standard.
