If you happen to be an enthusiastic Ram owner, have a deep passion for Ram vehicles, or just want to learn more about the marque, continue reading below for a detailed look at the brand's history and some of its past and present models.
Ram is a brand of trucks established in 2009 at that time as a division of Chrysler Group LLC, in alliance with Fiat S.p.A. It is currently owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), formerly Fiat S.p.A, and is a division under its Chrysler Group wholly owned subsidiary. With a product lineup consisting of consumer and commericial work-oriented vehicles that range from light to heavy-duty trucks, to chassis cab vehicles and cargo vans, Ram is targeted towards the serious truck buyer.
After emerging from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June of 2009, and going through a re-organization overseen by the US Government, Chrysler Group LLC, in alliance with Fiat S.p.A., announced in October of that same year that they would be unbundling the Dodge brand in order to further refine its new strategy of focusing on brands. This decision came about primarily due to Fiat’s desire to create better separation between Chrysler’s commercial vehicles and those that were more consumer-oriented. As part of this corporate restructuring, the Dodge truck division was spun off from Dodge into its own brand and became its own separate subsidiary of Chrysler Group LLC, while all Dodge cars and other vehicles—such as SUVs—continued under the Dodge Car brand. The name of Dodge’s popular line of existing pickup trucks—the “Ram”—was chosen as the name of the newly established brand, now formally known as the Ram truck division within Chrysler.
Starting in 2010, all existing light pickup and medium-duty trucks, as well as all future heavy-duty trucks and commercial cargo vans, manufactured by Chrysler were to be sold under the Ram brand while Dodge would switch over to selling an exclusively passenger car-based lineup. Even though the Dodge brand has since been split up and Ram trucks and Dodge cars are now marketed separately, the company has stated that "Ram trucks will always and forever be Dodges.” However, the company felt that it needed to restructure and reposition so that Ram and Dodge could have two different, and very distinct, brand identities. The ram head, the logo formerly used by Dodge, is now the Ram brand logo while Dodge’s logo was redesigned.
While Fiat initially only owned 20% of the new Chrysler Group LLC company, of which Ram became a division of, after the bankruptcy proceedings were complete, that was increased to over half in 2011 when it bought the shares of Chrysler that were being held by the US Treasury and Canada. This purchase once again returned control of Chrysler into the hands of a foreign owned company. Fiat continued to gradually acquire the other parties' shares and increase its ownership stake of Chrysler over the next couple of years.
In January of 2014, Fiat S.p.A. purchased the remaining 41.5% of Chrysler Group LLC from the United Auto Workers, taking complete ownership, and announced that it would be reorganizing and merging into a new holding company. In July of 2014, Fiat announced how this would all take place, and that Fiat S.p.A. (which now wholly owned the Chrysler Group) would be merged into Fiat Investments N.V., a new Netherlands-based company. Fiat Investments would then be renamed Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. and would become the new holding company of the Fiat Group, once shareholders approved which it was in August. In October, the merger was approved and Fiat S.p.A. and Chrysler Group LLC were officially merged together to form Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). It was established as a Netherlands-based holding company with its global headquarters located in the United Kingdom, with two wholly owned automotive subsidiaries under its control: Fiat Group Automobiles, which houses Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Fiat (Fiat’s own branded cars), Fiat Professional and Lancia, and Chrysler Group, which houses Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram Trucks. The names of these two groups were subsequently changed in late 2014 to FCA Italy S.p.A. (formerly Fiat Group Automobiles S.p.A.) and FCA US LLC (formerly Chrysler Group LLC). This was implemented as the latest phase in the adoption of the FCA corporate identity, in order to highlight that all group companies worldwide are part of a single company. The Chrysler name will continue on as a vehicle brand under the FCA US LLC however. FCA also continued its direct ownership of other former Fiat S.p.A. companies, such as luxury car manufacturer Maserati and Mopar, a components manufacturer.
While the decision to separate Ram trucks from Dodge following Chrysler's alliance with Fiat was controversial at the time it was announced, with many critics proclaiming it didn’t make a whole lot of sense, both brands have been thriving since. Since the split, Ram has experienced tremendous sales growth and continued to gain market share year-over-year, while Dodge sales have increased as well. The breakup has allowed Ram to laser-focus solely on trucks and commercial vehicles, and to connect with the real truck customer.
