RAM TRUCKS 1500 EXPRESS CREW

RAM Trucks Australia has introduced the 1500 Express Crew V8 Hemi to its range. Sitting one step above the entry-level 1500 Express Quad, the RAM Express Crew features more space, higher specification and what the importer calls (hopefully with a bit of tongue-in-cheek) “an even sportier appearance”. Priced from $89,950 plus on-road costs, the full-size 1500 Express Crew truck features the larger cabin found on the RAM Laramie, meaning more head, shoulder and leg room than any five-seat ute on the market today.

RAM 1500 IS ONE TOUGH PICKUP TRUCK

The RAM 1500 has arrived in Australia and is a large pickup, or ute if you prefer that term.
