Here’s Ram’s small pickup truck, and it doesn’t look that bad – Roadshow

This factor’s kinda of neat.


All indicators level to the very fact Fiat Chrysler Cars has a brand new Ram pickup within the works, and rumors swirl it can wear the Dakota name at any time when it does arrive — doubtless in just a few years. However, for our pals to the south, Ram handled consumers to their very own small pickup truck.

On Wednesday, the automaker revealed the Ram 700 for Mexico and Latin America. It is only a rebadged Fiat Strada pickup, however it definitely wears its Ram duds fairly effectively. It is also not precisely what Individuals would most likely anticipate from a brand new small pickup, although it boasts some respectable specs. The SLT and Laramie trims sport a 1.4-liter inline-four engine that makes 84 horsepower, whereas the top-tier Ram 700 Huge Horn makes use of a 1.3-liter turbo-four engine good for 98 hp. Each engines pair with a guide transmission and energy flows to the entrance wheels. It will even carry as much as 1,600 kilos and tow 800 kilos. Once more, it will hardly be as much as snuff with what Individuals anticipate from their pickup, however it’s a neat little factor nonetheless.

And consider it or not, automakers do have curiosity on this form of truck phase within the US. Ford’s badly stored secret of a sub-Ranger pickup continues to pop up on the web once in a while and may put on the Maverick name. It will doubtless experience on the Bronco Sport’s platform and develop into a brand new entry-level car for the Blue Oval. One thing just like the Ram 700 may rival the Maverick fairly effectively. We’ve not heard a peep about something of the like from General Motors.

Right now’s midsize pickups are hardly “small,” so maybe we may see a Ram Dakota sooner or later adopted by one thing just like the 700. The US does not appear prepared to surrender on its utility autos anytime quickly, so I believe it is secure to say the door’s open — particularly contemplating Ford virtually definitely has its personal tiny truck on the best way.
