Ram Trucks Canada sales figures

Ram Brand Reports Record Sales for 2019

  • Ram brand notches record sales of 703,023 vehicles

  • Ram pickup truck sales rise 18 percent to record 633,694 vehicles

  • Ram ProMaster commercial van sales rise 21 percent to record 56,409 vehicles

January 3, 2020 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Ten years ago, in the midst of a recovering U.S. automotive industry, a new leadership team decided to do the unthinkable – launch a new brand.
 The announcement came in October 2009. The Dodge brand, which consisted of Dodge cars and Dodge trucks, would be “unbundled” and the Ram brand was born.
 Today, the Ram brand reported record sales of 703,023 vehicles for 2019. It is the highest level of full-year sales ever for the brand and an 18 percent increase over 2018.
Ram full-year pickup truck sales also rose to a record level of 633,694 vehicles. It is an 18 percent increase over 2018.
 All this comes as the average transaction price of the Ram 1500 has jumped almost 50 percent from 2010 to about $50,000. Meanwhile, the average transaction price for the Ram Heavy Duty has increased more than 20 percent to about $55,000.
 
Technology
FCA decided to leapfrog the competition in 2018 by introducing a new Ram 1500 equipped with the new Uconnect 4C with a massive 12-inch touchscreen in the center console. It leads the pickup world in technology, featuring split-screen capability, 360-degree camera views and exclusive content from SiriusXM with Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora, which delivers ad-free personalization not found on any other audio entertainment service. The move was predicated on the belief that Americans were spending more time in their trucks and they wanted the same accessibility to all things cyberspace they could get in their homes. Meanwhile, the idea of keeping a separate “work truck” has faded. People are now making their trucks the family vehicle.
 
Three-truck Strategy
When FCA introduced the new Ram 1500 in 2018, it was decided that production of the previous generation would continue. The Ram 1500 Classic now provides consumers more choice since the entry-level truck represents the best full-size value in America.
Consumers who want additional features and technology now shop the new Ram 1500. This year, FCA followed the Ram 1500 success by introducing a redesigned heavy-duty Ram.
 
The Ram Heavy Duty and the Jeep Gladiator are both finalists for the 2020 North American Car and Truck of the Year. Winners will be announced Jan. 13 in Detroit. 
 
Ram Facts:

  • The company's first trucks (then known as Dodge Brothers) were produced in 1917 – commercial "Screenside" models. Pickups would come later as would chassis-cab upfits, including ambulance models that would serve the United States forces in World War I

  • The Ram Laramie Longhorn uses real leather, metal and wood throughout the truck's cabin. Each Longhorn's dash is individually branded and, as a result, no two Longhorn trucks are exactly alike

  • The third-generation EcoDiesel engine is available across the entire 2020 Ram 1500 line, including the off-road Rebel model. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is not only America's best half-ton pickup truck value, but also offers the longest range of any vehicle in the U.S. – more than 1,000 miles on a single tank.

Falcon Shocks for the new Ford Ranger & F series trucks

Falcon 2019+ Ford Ranger: 2.25" Sport e-Tow/Haul Shock Leveling System

Falcon Sport e-Tow/Haul Shock Leveling Systems improve performance and comfort regardless of terrain. The rear electronically adjustable piggyback shocks can be adjusted with the flip of a switch making these systems ideal for daily driving, off-road, and tow/haul duties. Also available for 2017+ F-250. Manual Tow/Haul available for 2015+ F-150.

Falcon’s proprietary Volume Optimized Damping (VOD) features a digressive linear valve to improve vehicle feedback, stability, and control during low-speed, high-speed, and off-road driving. As the piston compresses and rebounds, the valve restricts oil flow creating a damping effect.

VOD’s quicker ramp-up increases damping volume during low-speed driving as well as reduces shock bottoming at full compression during faster speeds or over uneven terrain.

Traditional velocity sensitive shock absorbers react quickly during low-speed driving causing excessive “head toss” on rough terrain – or even driveways. Conventional damping then firms up during faster shaft speeds resulting in a jarring ride.
