Gone are the days when seeing a big pick-up truck from North America on Australian roads was a head-turner. 

We now have a fairly wide selection of the big single and dual-cab U.S. pick-ups available to us, and one brand in particular has been at the forefront of the revolution – RAM Trucks.

Now comes a big milestone – the remanufacturing of the 30,000th RAM Truck at the RAM Trucks Australia facility in Melbourne.

The milestone vehicle was a RAM 1500 Big Horn.

It was 2014 when the first RAM left the local production line and since then the range and popularity of the trucks has only gathered pace.

“30,000 vehicles is a significant carpark in anyone’s books – that its come about in a segment that didn’t exist a few years ago is testament to the hard work of everyone involved,” – Jeff Barber, General Manager of RAM Trucks Australia.

“From our partners in the US and Melbourne to our dedicated dealer network in Australia and New Zealand, the RAM Trucks business proves that it’s possible to establish an OEM-level automotive manufacturing capability in Australia despite the closure of local automotive brands.

And to celebrate the 30,000th full-size pick-up truck and in preparation for the end of financial year, RAM Trucks Australia announced a new finance deal.

‘Mates Rates’ is a no-deposit 4.99% finance offer for RAM 1500 Big Horn models sold and delivered between 1 May and 30 June 2024 (Terms and Conditions below) .

“The lead up to the End of Financial Year is always peak buying time for small to medium business owners, and this ‘Mates Rates’ finance offer is a compelling deal on the entry point to the RAM Trucks range.”
