It’s no secret that Ford has a winner with the Ford Maverick small pickup and it looks like other small trucks may soon arrive. Hyundai already launched the Santa Cruz pickup and now a new report claims that Ram is also working on a Ram 1200 small pickup for the US.
The latest report comes to us from Brazil’s Auto Segredos that attended a local media event with Antonio Filosa, president of Stellantis South America. Filosa announced that a new Ram 1200 truck will be added to Ram’s US lineup, which is part of Stellantis’ plan to add 16 new models and 26 updated models over the next three years. We don’t have any other big details about the Ram 1200, but it will reportedly be based on the Small Wide 4×4 platform, like the Jeep Renegade.
We still have a lot of questions, like what will power the Ram 1200? Ram has been teasing the idea of a midsize pickup, which could revive the Dakota name. Stay tuned.
