Code Name “Adventurer”
Look for Chrysler to release a basic inexpensive version of the Ram 1500 sometime in the second quarter of 2011. Apparently they are trying to reach first time truck buyers. The 1500 will come with a standard Hemi V-8 and have an average fuel rating of 20 mpgs. The starting price is expected to be $23,830. That price point is competitive with the Dakota mid-size truck which is on its way out. Some dealers have started to take pre-orders.
