Dodge Ram

Dodge Ram

The new Ram from Dodge came along in 1994 and made the outgoing model look very dated. The new truck's bold styling with raised hood and low-down headlights was popular; it also became the look for Dodge's later Sport Utility Vehicle, the Dakota. The range-topping Ram used a cast-iron version of the Dodge Viper's V10 engine, and it's the biggest motor available in a production pick-up. With a relatively low 8.6:1 compression ratio it has been designed to be more of a torquey low rpm unit, though still runs the sequential fuel injection. The truck used a ladder-type chassis separate to the body and the standard suspension consists of double wishbones at the front plus a live axle rear on leaf springs, which was basic but very functional and heavy duty. Four-wheel drive was an option, and with the tremendous torque, there was little the VI0 Ram couldn't do.
