Ram, along with Jeep, will benefit greatly from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ plan to shuffle its North American manufacturing footprint. The changes will be completed by mid-2018.
1500: Ram engineers are working now on redesigning the half-ton pickup to reduce weight, improve fuel economy and boost safety. Scheduled to appear in early 2018, the next-generation 1500 will feature an interior refresh but few exterior styling changes. The move from Warren Truck Assembly to Sterling Heights Assembly will ease production constraints and allow for more small-volume buzz models in the future.
2500, 3500: Ram will redesign its heavy-duty pickup lineup in 2018 for the 2019 model year to improve towing and hauling and to make interior refinements.
ProMaster: A light freshening is planned in late 2017.
ProMaster City: Only light updates are planned before 2019.
