2004-09 Dodge Ram added to Takata recall

Queensland's Maracoonda Automotive has issued a recall for converted Dodge Ram utes sold between 2004 and 2010 as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. As with all Takata notices, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause airbag inflator propellant to degrade over time.

RAM 1500 confirmed for Australia by mid-year 2018

Local distributor Ateco Automotive has confirmed a mid-year Australian launch for the 2018 Ram 1500 – that is, the outgoing model, not the 2019 range revealed in January. Due to demand in the US, that all-new offering won't be available to our market for at least another year. With the last of the current-generation 1500, Ateco is aiming straight for high-end versions of the ever-growing ute segment – think Ranger Wildtrak, Ranger Raptor, X-Class and Amarok V6.
