Dodge & RAM History

Dodge began in 1900, and was acquired by Chrysler in 1928. And no, you aren’t misremembering things–there was actually a vehicle called the Dodge Ram, released in 1981. The RAM make that we know today started as a model under the Dodge lineup. In 2009, FIAT acquired Chrysler and restructured the Dodge brand, splitting off the Dodge Ram trucks and Dodge Dakota trucks to create the RAM brand.
