Is RAM Dodge? | Who Owns RAM? | RAM Brand History | Perkins Motors

The Dodge brothers were producing vehicles way back in the early 1900s, but their trucks came into vogue around 1914. The Dodge RAM pickup truck, meanwhile, was introduced in 1980 for model year 1981; there was also the Ramcharger SUV and Dodge RAM van. The RAM truck continued to bear the Dodge name until RAM and Dodge split in 2009, at which point in time, RAM became its own marque. While both Dodge and RAM are currently owned by Stellantis (formerly known as FCA group), they are their own unique automotive brands, not unlike how GMC and Chevy are their own unique brands under the General Motors umbrella.
