Some global markets will soon get an all-new Ram pickup. The Ram brand has issued a teaser of its redesigned Ram 700, a compact pickup sold in various markets in Latin America and South America.
The Ram 700 was introduced in those global markets back in 2015 and is based on the Fiat Strada pickup. A new version of the Strada was recently revealed for the 2021 model-year, so it comes as no surprise that Ram is updating the Ram 700 alongside it.
Both the 2021 Fiat Strada and Ram 700 are riding on Fiat’s new Modular Platform Pickup (MPP) platform. The new architecture is designed exclusively for Fiat’s global pickups and is supposedly more ridged than the outgoing variant, which dated back all the way to 1996.
Assuming the features found on the new Strada are any indicator, the new Ram 700 will likely see a flood of modern features, including the company’s UConnect infotainment system. In fact, the Strada even features compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Ram is expected to reveal the 2021 Ram 700 later this week. It will be sold in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Bolivia, Dominican Republic and Chile. It likely goes without saying that this isn’t slated to make its way to the North American market.
