When Did Dodge Stop Making Trucks?
Once in a while we still get this question. Dodge and RAM got a divorce in 2009. It was an amicable break-up, however, as they both decided it was best for their children. And truth be told, there was a little “It’s not you, it’s me,” that went on as well.
The RAM truck line-up was separated from the Dodge name to better focus on real truck customers, while Dodge went on to focus on its performance aficionados. There was a lot of chatter at the time that it was a huge mistake in branding, but 10 years later no one can argue that it was the right thing to do. RAM’s growth has been exponential and Dodge’s performance cars have left the other guys choking on their dust.
RAM has responded to its customers’ push for more technology, capability and options and received rave reviews for its upgrades. Dodge’s flashback to some of its greatest iconic vehicles has renewed interest in the muscle cars of our youth and taken them a step or nine beyond what they were ever capable of. The road is a much more exciting place since Dodge and RAM said “See-ya-later” and for that we can all be eternally grateful.
