US pick-up sales continue to grow

Sales of full-size US pick-ups continue to increase in Australia and show few signs of stopping, official figures reveal.

In 2021, Ram Trucks Australia will be offered a new suite of new product – including a 523kW supercharged version of its Ram 1500. MORE: Everything Ram

What cars did Aussies buy during the pandemic? Utes, utes and more utes

Australia’s favourite workhorse utes are increasingly being used as weekend getaway cars. That’s the assessment from industry insiders trying to explain the unexpected surge in the sales of utes such as the Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger, and full-size US pick-ups such as the Ram 1500. “People can’t travel overseas so they’re treating themselves to a new car instead, and choosing one they can take on holidays here,” said a veteran car dealer with more than 20 years in the trade.

Surprise winners in April 2020: not all car sales went backwards in record low month

Sales of US-style Ram pick-ups increased in April 2020 as the rest of the car market slammed the brakes due to coronavirus lockdowns. Industry analysts believe the Federal Government’s $150,000 instant asset write-off is behind the surge, which saw Ram pick-up sales increase by 14.1 per cent in April (from 156 to 178) in a market that was down by 48.5 per cent.

Ram produces 5000th right-hand drive vehicle in Australia

The Ram pick-up from the USA has passed a major milestone in Australia, with the 5000th example converted to right-hand drive locally in less than four years. Demand for the Ram 1500 – and its bigger Ram 2500 and 3500 siblings – is so strong the Melbourne facility that remanufactures the trucks to right-hand drive has been operating 24 hours a day since the 1500th example was made in middle of 2019 (pictured below).
