Established in 2014, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. also marked the inception of Ram Trucks Australia. Now, under Stellantis, the company has successfully delivered over 30,000 units of the Ram Pickup series in Australia and New Zealand.

Dubbed P/U, Ram Trucks Australia focuses on converting the pickup series to right-hand drive in Melbourne. Recently, the 30,000th conversion rolled off the production line a 1500 Big Horn with a crew cab and 6’4″ bed, coated in Billet Silver. Presently, Ram Trucks Australia employs 400 individuals and operates two production lines in Clayton, Melbourne, with a daily capacity of 50 conversions.

The brand boasts a network of 73 dealers across Australia and New Zealand, offering a lineup of nine distinct pickups. Starting with the 1500 Express V8 HEMI Crew Cab, the lineup caters to diverse preferences.

Notably, the 1500 Classic, akin to its US counterpart, will soon bid adieu in Canada post the 2024 model year. Its presence continues in Australia to fill the void in the more midsize segment against rivals like the Hilux and Ranger.

With prices ranging from AUD 172,950 to AUD 249,950, the lineup includes the formidable Hellcat-powered TRX and TRX Final Edition, limited to 130 units, marking a shift from the 5.7-liter HEMI and 6.2-liter Hellcat in the 2025 model year. The 2025 Ram 1500 RHO now succeeds the monstrous TRX, offering 540 horsepower and 521 pound-feet of torque, catering to the evolving market demands.
