Used RAM 2500

3rd Generation


Silver 2009 Used Dodge RAM 2500 angled left

Looking for a reliable used truck to last for many years? Then you’ll want to find yourself a used Ram 2500 model. Particularly, a model from the 3rd generation. Why? Simply because this was the last generation before the tragic (for us, not them) Dodge/RAM split that happened in 2009. The 3rd generation ranges from 2003-2009, and that means it has the best of the best that Dodge had to offer for its 2500 model. While RAM is doing a good job with it, there’s something about seeing that Dodge star slapped onto the steering wheel when you get into one of these trucks that lets you know the quality of the vehicle shouldn’t ever be questioned.

Last Generation Before Dodge/RAM Split in ’09

Dodge/RAM parted ways because of a shift in ideals. RAM wanted to continue to make its trucks as rugged looking as possible, whereas Dodge had different ideas up its sleeve. On the other side of the same token, Dodge also wanted to focus on the sedans, vans, and SUV portion of the auto industry, while RAM wanted to keep working on trucks. Therefore, they decided to part ways in 2009, which left some consumers sad, but the companies were elated with the decision. Both sides expressed how the split benefitted both brands to grow separately in their own way, and better than if they remained merged. That’s not to say RAM and Dodge are no longer under the FCA banner because they still are in 2017. But the RAM trucks split off from Dodge in 2009, and from that time, have officially been labeled RAM models — no longer Dodge RAM.

Why Is This Significant?

Many of you are wondering why that history lesson is significant. First, people still mix up the two manufacturers a lot. Some consumers don’t even know that Ram trucks are no longer part of Dodge. Secondly, as mentioned, the 3rd generation of the Used Ram 2500 is the last one before Dodge and RAM split. That means you’re not only owning a piece of history in the automotive world, but also getting a vehicle that was designed and produced by both Dodge and RAM. With two big automakers like that on the bill, it’s gotta be good, right? Oh, it is.
