2010 Ram Heavy Duty Production Starts In Mexico

2010 Ram Heavy Duty Production Starts In Mexico

Chrysler has started building new 2010 Ram Heavy Duty pickup trucks, according to Mark Heber, head of Ram brand truck marketing.

“Production started October 13,” Heber said. “The first Ram trucks should be reaching dealers in three to four weeks.”

The Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty pickups are being manufactured at Chrysler's Saltillo Assembly Plant in Coahuila, Mexico. The Saltillo plant also produces the Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cabs.

Pricing for the 2010 Ram HD pickups hasn't been announced.


i really like this new truck.... wish i could afford one of these

I will not buy a Mexican truck when Ford, Toyota are struggling to sell American made trucks, period.

@kcal: Don't forget, Ford is going to make 6.7-liter V-8 diesels in Mexico and Toyota makes Tacoma pickups South of the Border.

the money comes back to the U.S that's all that counts

I wish all American brands were built in the U.S. But you can with is one hand and crap in the other and see which on fills up first.

Truth is, if they weren't build in Mexico it would be a hell of a lot more expensive. Look and the Ford Fusion Hybrid. If it was built in the US, it would cost customers $50,000 plus. Trust me, the plant itself that builds these trucks are American made. American trained Mexican workers.

Also, don't forget Toyota doesn't even make a heavy duty truck. Unless and until toyota makes a heavy duty truck in the United States, the Tundra fans need to be shut up about being american made. There is NO AMERICAN MADE HEAVY DUTY TRUCK.

Is there no Super Duty made in Kentucky? I don't think we will ever be able to say 100% American owned, made, build 100% with parts that are from companies that are 100% owned and made - but we should at least aim for owned, and final assembly. Well I think it's up to the American government to offer incentives to the manufacturers to build locally. The incentives need to be competitive with incentives in Canada, Mexico and other countries.

I mean to write, there is no TOYOTA American made heavy duty. Those tards are so annoying. Why even bring up Toyota in a Dodge Heavy Duty thread when you don't even have a heavy duty Toyota to compare it to.

Surprise! Buying American still matters
Sure, many Asian cars are now built in the United States, but the benefits they bring to the U.S. economy don't come close to what our own auto industry provides.


The last time I looked North America is made up of Canada, The United States of America and Mexico. Then there is Central America and South America. The auto assembly plants in Mexico constantly recieve awards for quality above and beyond their U.S.of A. counterparts. If it's a truck made in North America buy it! You can't go wrong if rugged is what you want.

Though i am partial to Gm being i got a to die for loaded GMC sierra slt 2008 crewcab doolie with the duramax and a 4x4. I love all the big 3 trucks. The Dodge is nice looking but sutch a shame they make a killer awesome crewcab/kingcab but you now loose leingth in the bed, Not only do ya loose bed room obviously but the short bed on a long wheelbased crewcab/kingcab truck looks out of size proportion. Kind of like a body builder that trains upper body only and has spindly legs because he dont train them. It would have been nice if they could hasve left an 8 ft bed. A correctly proportioned bed on that truck woulda be the cats ass NO DOUBT.

I think Dodge should have tried DEF/Urea on the Cummins. I can see the Duramax and the Powerstroke getting more power and torque while also getting better fuel economy. Time will tell.

I am so pleased they still offer the megacab option people need more interior room while keeping a decent cargo space.Also powertrain warranty is another Plus.Although I owned GM in the past and presently I can't wait for my next one. A megacab good work Chrysler!

For 50 years have been a fan how can i get a new dodge ram mega truck right hand drive???

In regards to a comment made above earlier by poster John. Agree with you 100%. I'm in the market for a 3500 and leaning towards Dodge mainly because of the Cummins Diesel. I would be impressed to see this truck with an 8' bed as you suggested. If you do a Google "Mega Cab" image search, there is a white one that pops up that someone has modified into an 8' bed. Sure takes away from that stubby look that you speak of. If anyone from Dodge design team is out there reading this, you may want to consider this option!!!!! Thanks
