Midsize Ram Pickup to be Built at Jeep Plant

Ram’s upcoming midsize truck will reportedly be produced at Fiat Chrysler’s Toledo, Ohio assembly plant. The same plant is currently retooling to produce the upcoming Jeep Wrangler based pickup truck, suggesting the Ram will be body-on-frame.

Automotive News reports that Toledo production confirms the new Ram model will not utilize a Fiat unibody chassis, which was suggested within the rumor mill. Indeed, it would be unusual for an assembly plant to produce a body-on-frame and unibody vehicle.

Back in June now FCA CEO Mike Manley confirmed the brand will rollout a new midsize truck, but declined to offer specifics on the new model. Once launched, the midsize Ram will compete with the likes of the Chevrolet Colorado and upcoming Ford Ranger, both of which are build on a body-on-frame chassis like a traditional pickup truck.

Manley did confirm that the new truck will arrive in Ram dealerships in 2020 as a 2021 model.
