Ram’s current lineup only includes the Ram 1500, a full-size pickup truck, but that may change in the next few years. With truck sales on the rise and Ford is introducing a competitor for the Chevy Colorado, Ram will soon assert its domination in the mid-size truck market.
In June, Ram announced that it will bring its own mid-size pickup to the market by 2022, but it kept quiet on details surrounding the new truck. Auto journalists and truck enthusiasts have speculated that Ram may bring back the Dakota, the brand’s long-running mid-size truck that ended production in 2011.
Jalopnik contributor David Tracy confirmed that the new mid-size truck will be available for sale in the U.S. as well as Mexico and outside North America. Car and Driver contributor Joseph Capparella speculated that the mid-size truck could be based on the Ram 1200, which is sold in the Middle East.
Per Caparella, the new mid-size might use a shortened version of the Ram 1500 platform with V6 and turbocharged four-cylinder engine options. As Steven Ewing, contributor with CNET, articulated, model will most likely feature a hybrid system, since Ram plans to add electrification to its whole lineup.
