    Dodge RAM and Chrysler question

    So from what I understand the deal was made in 2009 for Dodge to give the RAM truck to Chrysler. Did production of RAM trucks under Chrysler start in 2009 or 2010?

    I see dealerships calling the newer RAMS dodge even though they are not when I search online.

    Ram became its own brand in 2012. But there are still dodge decals in a lot of the trucks in the 2012 and 13 models. My truck was a 2012 and titled as a Ram, even though some of the badging still said dodge.

    Loved that damn truck btw

    Weird they were allowed to rebrand their product? What are you, some sort of Commie?

    No haha, the RAM name left Dodge so they could just concentrate on cars. That's what everything I've read says as well as everyone I know who's into car talk. My mechanics as well.

    I own a new Tundra and love it. However i do think the Rams are very good looking as well. But i would also add that its pretty hard to find a bad looking truck coming out these days. Short of the Honda or Nissan nonsense.

    The one thing I CANNOT stand about ram trucks is the god damn badges. They are just so gaudy. Gaint,1000 pt font RAM logos and stickers every 6 inches. Too much for me

    I have never been a huge fan of the dodges but we did purchase a 1/2 ton eco diesel for the shop a couple of years ago. I will have to eat a little crow they are a nice driving/handling pickup for a half ton. We use it for a sales vehicle and it never gets pulled but it gets decent mileage and has good power if your driving it like a car but that is pretty much what they were designed for.

    My mechanics warned me about RAM since it left Dodge new ones and I don't mean some BS Firestone mechanics. Maybe the latest ones are better though, I don't know.
