Dodge Trucks Through the Years


A Pictorial Glimpse of Ram Trucks Throughout the` Years

Ram has become known for its numerous truck models as for its passenger vehicles. In 2009, trucks were spun off into the Ram badge, named after the brand's most popular pickup truck, the Ram. Although, it ought to be noticed that despite the fact that the Ram trucks are promoted independently from Dodge autos, Ram President Fred Diaz has expressed that "Ram trucks will forever and always be Dodges. Ram will always have the Dodge badge inside and outside and they will be "vinned" (from the VIN acronym, or Vehicle Identification Number) as a Dodge. They will keep on marketing as Ram so Dodge may have an alternate brand idenity: hip, cool, youthful, vivacious. That won't fit the truck buyer campaign. The two ought to have distinct themes."

As far back as the start of its history in 1914, Dodge has manufactured light truck models. For the first few years, they were constructed to a great extent on existing passenger cars, yet in the long run picked up their own particular chassis and body designs as the market developed. Light-and medium-duty models were offered to begin with, then a heavy-duty line was included amid the 1930s and 1940s. The Warren Truck Assembly plant was founded in 1938, and Dodge trucks have been manufactured there from that point forward.

Fargo Trucks

Fargo was a brand of truck initially delivered in 1913 in the U.S. by the Fargo Motor Car Company. Discontinued in 1922, the name was reintroduced asr a truck line produced by the Chrysler Corporation in the wake of buying Fargo Motors in 1928. Later, Chrysler acquired Dodge and began delivering its own truck line, over time Fargo trucks became rebadged Dodges, like the parallel marketing of General Motors with its GMC and Chevrolet truck divisions
