Ram Truck 1500 Models and 1500 History

In 1998, the Ram 1500 was the first pickup that offered four-doors for buyers, marking a design accolade for Dodge at the time. A newly designed interior was debuted alongside new depowered airbags that enhanced safety. A new express “power down” feature was added to all powered window models in 1999, with new ABS made standard for trucks over 10,000 pounds. The eight-foot bed was discontinued in 2001, but updated steering and suspension systems were added to enhance the drive. A new and optional Cummings turbodiesel model debuted in 2002, offering 245 horsepower and 505 pound-feet of torque. In 2003, an all-new Ram 1500 was showcased at dealerships nationwide. Shuffling in trims and packages marked the only significant changes for 2004-2005. A new body style was showcased for 2006, and the Mega Cab model was introduced. It offered a 20” longer cabin and more interior room than any other truck. A new dash, center console, seating, wheels and radio also complemented this model year. Stain-resistant seating (cloth) was made standard in 2008, with optional remote start and stability control. 2009 would see the release of a completely redesigned Ram 1500. An integrated trailer brake controller and updated tire pressure monitoring system were the key add-ons for 2010.
