Trucks of Steel: Ram Not Switching to Aluminum Anytime Soon

A hot topic right now is automotive makes switching to the use of aluminum as the main component for their pickup trucks. Well, Ram is not conforming to that popular transition anytime time soon as they look to keep making trucks of steel.

Aluminum is a lot of times used in smaller, sportier cars because of how lightweight the material is, and it has been that way for a little while now. Ford and General Motors, how competitors of the Detroit native, Ram, have already committed to start using that precious light metal for their trucks. Ford already has, and GM has announced they will begin to use it next year.

Ram, however, is not looking switch to aluminum until at least 2020. After all, steel has been a major player in the building of cars for decades and decades, why switch so all of a sudden? It is a more powerful metal and can withstand a beating, which is what we like to see if we go off-roading.

Trucks of Steel from Ram
As the old saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That’s why Ram is in no hurry to test out aluminum bodies on their trucks.

Don’t think for one second that this means the Ram truck that has now been named Truck of the Year for two consecutive years will get old. There is a plan to refresh the model in 2015 and looking to make even more improvements in 2017. Then, later on it may switch to aluminum… when it is good and ready.

Many of these trucks of steel are waiting for you right here at Corwin Dodge. Stop by today to see what the steel is doing for the already powerful Ram 1500.
