2011 Ram 1500 Express

2011 Ram 1500 Express

April 7, 2011 , Dallas- The Ram 1500 Express — originally announced Feb. 15, 2011 under the code name Adventurer — is a new Ram Truck model aimed squarely at first-time buyers and owners who are looking for a vehicle with performance and style that they can customize and make their own.

“We’re excited about the addition of this new model to the Ram 1500 lineup. There’s nothing that compares to the high-performance value represented by the Ram 1500 Express. Ram 1500 Express combines great looks and MPG along with HEMI horsepower, torque, towing and payload, all at a fantastic price. It gives the youth or first-time truck buyer an opportunity to show off a great looking ride, with unsurpassed V8 entry-level capability, in a tremendous value-priced package.”

-Fred Diaz
Ram Truck President and CEO
Head of National Sales – Chrysler Group LLC

Plans to launch the new Ram 1500 Express were pulled ahead after company executives saw a groundswell of support for the then-just-announced Ram Tradesman.

The Ram Tradesman — unveiled Feb. 9, 2011 at the Chicago Auto Show — is a value-priced, HEMI®-powered Ram 1500 regular cab truck that appeals to a cost-conscious, new-vehicle buyer who doesn’t want to give up performance and capability.

The new Ram 1500 Express — like the Ram Tradesman — offers buyers a standard HEMI V8 engine with a 20 mpg rating for the same price competitors are charging for their V6 engines.

Mopar has announced that it will have hundreds of accessories available for buyers who are looking to personalize their Ram 1500 Express.

“Given that the Ram 1500 Express is an aggressively priced truck, owners will have plenty left over to personalize and customize their ride. For this truck, Mopar will offer more than 300 quality-tested accessories from which to choose.”

-Pietro Gorlier
President and CEO of Mopar
