The Ram 1500 Arrives And Redefines Trucking BC, Canada

The 1980 model year saw the arrival of the original Dodge Ram in BC. Initially, it was the 150, meaning a pickup of a half-ton. The D or eponymous model truck indicates a two-wheel-drive version and a W or Power Ram for the 4WD configuration. They boasted available engine options of 3.7-litre slant six at 95 HP, a 5.2-litre V8 at 140 HP, or a 5.9-litre V8 at 170 HP and adeptly handled many kinds of tasks without breaking a sweat.

In 1988 and 1989, electronic fuel injection came to the Ram 150. The truck gained a 5.2-litre V8, a 3.9-litre V6, and a 5.9-litre V8 with the new technology added to bump it up to 190 HP. But what set the stage for the future was introducing a 5.9-litre inline six-cylinder that would become the Cummins Turbodiesel engine later. Still, even then, it cranked out up to 160 HP and a staggering 400 lb-ft of torque - and this traction of power continues even today.

New Ram 1500 Models for the New Decade Come to BC, Canada

In 1994, the name Ram 1500 came to be, as did the renowned Laramie trim level, which came to be famous for its luxury as well as its performance in BC. You may recognize the nineties models in particular due to their appearance in the Twister movie. As for looks, this generation boasted styling inspired by big-rig trucks, and more comfort and convenience features came too, such as the bigger glove box, a centre armrest, and added storage areas.

This generation brought the first extended cab pickup with four entry points, which continued the brand's reputation for innovation. Especially notable was the 1998 model year, when the 4-door Quad Cab debuted. In 2002, significant updates to the frame, suspension, interior, and materials arrived. This iteration also saw the Mega Cab come in 2006 and special limited editions like the NightRunner generated significant interest.

The Ram 1500 Goes its Own Way in BC, Canada

Even though 2009 meant that Dodge and Ram were no longer united, the 1500 continued to impress. With its newfound freedom, the pickup could innovate more features that drivers in BC have come to depend on, like the Rambox storage compartments and the Rebel trim level that appeared in 2016. Furthermore, 2018 saw the introduction of 4G LTE Wi-Fi and redesigned grilles for the upper-tier models.

In 2019, the Ram 1500's fifth-generation debuted to the excitement of BC drivers. It continued the power and capability features the brand has become renowned for, such as its 1043.3 kg payload capacity and up to 5783.3 kg of towing, when properly equipped. And 2021 saw the addition of Trailer Reverse Steering Control and the Snow Plow Prep Package, while the interior offered exciting technology like the available 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system.
