Why Did the Dodge and RAM Brands Separate? 

Dodge and RAM formally separated into their own independent brands in 2009, though both are still owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Group (FCA). The brands split so that each could further develop their own distinct strengths. The shift allowed RAM to focus more on hard-working capability and its commercial vehicle line. On the other side, Dodge had the opportunity to improve its performance-tailored vehicles while taking on rival family vehicles with a competitive suite of technology features. 

Though Dodge RAM is now just RAM, the meaning is the same no matter what you call it. It’s the brand truck shoppers default to when they want something dependable, savagely capable and packed with all the features you could ever want from a modern pickup.
