Fast Ram Trucks Australia facts
Ram Trucks Australia is a joint undertaking between the Walkinshaw Automotive Group and Ateco Automotive. Since 2015, it has been remanufacturing brand new left-hand drive US import Ram trucks and converting them locally to right-hand drive. It's expected that the company will make 7,000 utes this year, from its 24-hour production plant in Clayton, Melbourne.
Importing a truck from the USA and remanufacturing it here is quite a unique process. Why should you buy a Ram 1500 or 2500 over a readily available and popular HiLux or Ford Ranger, for example? And what should you consider when buying one of these super utes?
Which Ram model is best?
That really depends on what you want to do. Each buyer is different.
Which Ram should I buy for a family car?
Unless you need to tow a crazy heavy trailer or caravan, then the 1500 Laramie with a 5.7-litre V8 delivers the highest spec-level and passenger comfort features.
Which Ram ute is best for towing?
The Ram 2500 with a pintle style tow hitch can handle up to 6.9 tonnes of trailer. That's mind-boggling and nearly double the average "ordinary ute".
Which Ram ute is best for use as a work truck?
The 1500 Express has a long load bed, a cabin that's less equipped and comes in at a minimum price of around $79,950, excluding on-road costs.
