Is RAM Dodge?

2021 RAM 1500 Limited Longhorn in the Field

The Dodge brand began around 1900, and in 1914, their signature trucks went into production. This quickly made Dodge a popular automotive brand that’s known for creating reliable vehicles that can handle your Kendall jobsites with ease. So is RAM Dodge? When did Dodge and RAM split? RAM was originally the name of one of Dodge’s light-duty pickup trucks. Get all the details on the RAM Dodge connection with Planet Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM. Then, explore our virtual inventory to find the new RAM truck or van for sale that’s right for you.

When Did Dodge and RAM Split?

Chrysler purchased Dodge in 1981 and kept their most popular models, which included RAM pickup trucks. From 1981 to 2009, their pickup trucks were called “Dodge RAM,” then after a restructuring within the brand, Dodge and RAM split into two separate vehicle lineups. 

The split into separate entities happened so Dodge could focus on building new vehicles that could compete against models like the Chevrolet Corvette and Jeep Wrangler. This split allowed the brand to create huge stand-outs like the Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars, the Durango SUV, and more fan favorites, all of which are available at our Miami Dodge RAM dealership.

Who Owns RAM?

In 2009, Dodge’s parent company, Chrysler, made RAM a stand-alone name for their pickup trucks. If you own a truck made before 2009, it’s called a Dodge RAM, and all post-2009 pickup trucks are simply RAM trucks. They’re still the same company, they’re just Dodge cars, SUVs, and minivans that are under the Dodge branding, and their pickup trucks are with the RAM brand.
