As if its imposing presence on the road and the inimitable rumble of its 5.7 litre Hemi V8 engine was not enough, the 2019 RAM 1500 Laramie will be unmistakable on Australian roads thanks to its new grille and 30 cm high raised chrome badging on the tailgate.
RAM increased its Australian sales by more than 1000 percent in February compared to the same month last year driven by the new RAM 1500 launched in mid-2018, official VFACTS figures released today (05 March 2019) have been revealed and RAM’s Melbourne factory is also celebrating passing the 200 a month Australian production mark for the first time, doing so in the shortest month of the year.

RAM Trucks Australia has produced its 1,000th RAM pick-up truck in Australia with the four-figure benchmark achieved in two and half years since production started in December 2015 but, with production of the RAM 1500 already underway ready for its July launch, RAM Trucks Australia is set to hit its second 1,000 vehicle mark in less than half the time of the first one.
The RAM 1500 quite simply redraws key benchmarks for the fastest growing market sector in the Australia vehicle market, setting new standards for towing capacity, tub size, interior space and comfort and, with the legendary 5.7 litre HEMI V8, it resets the performance yardstick as well as marking the return to the market of the much loved V8 Ute that is an Australian icon.
