Default Ram refresh due for 2015, major re-design in 2017. Also some commercial van lineup changes.

>>What rams future looks like.<<

I just stumbled upon this, thought you guys would like to see.

It seems kind of weird to release information so soon, wouldn't this hurt profits? I'm interested to see where fiat is taking this and in my opinion they have been doing a great job so far.

I'm guessing 2015 will see some engine upgrades and/or more engine options to compete with GM's 6.2, some minor interior bits, and special editions before the body style ends etc.. (srt maybe? Yeah i know its a pipe dream but we could hope.)

Discuss everyone!

My opinion follows...

Yes and no about the profit thing. It could hurt or it could help. This was done 5 years ago and well, it didn't seem to hurt

If you want to see all the detailed plans for all the brands, here is the link with Ram right here. I doubt you will see an SRT truck as that's pretty much going to be exclusively Dodge territory from now on (Grand Cherokee excepted).

Hopefully the minor 2015 Ram change will be to add more paint colors, like they had before the Tsunami in Japan !!
Orange, Green, Yellow, Purple, etc.

Thanks for the update, I've been looking all over for any hints as to what 2015 may bring. I was super close to buying a '14 but then decided to wait til next spring. Hopefully I'll be even more excited with what the '15's have to offer.

I wish I knew what the "major redesign" is going to be. I hope they don't Euro-ize the body style...

It's all gibberish... A 2015 refresh has been known since 2013... and a 2017/18 redesign- even earlier. Nothing new here..

I guess Canadians love Rams pickups, it's pleasant to see that Ram in Canada has passed in second place in front of GM for market share and that even though Ford is first, the blue oval is stagnating.

I see last-generations Rams everywhere on the roads these days, it is obvious GM has fallen off in Canada.
