The next 2024 Ram 1200 is going on sale later this year, and it will reportedly rival the Ford Maverick model. However, for that to happen, Ram 1200 will have to arrive in US. On the other hand, more reliable sources are saying that the Ram 1200 will not reach American dealerships anytime soon. Instead, it will arrive in South America.
It is a compact pickup, with nice styling and modern interior design. Comfort is great, although the cabin room is not so generous. We are waiting to hear official words for Ram, but some details are already available.
Ram 1200 Engine Specs
Based on available information and speculations, the engine lineup for the 2024 Ram 1200 may vary depending on the market it will be offered in. For instance, some sources suggest that a 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine with around 200 horsepower may be offered in certain markets.
However, it’s expected that the North American version may come with different engine options. One possibility is a plug-in hybrid setup, which could be based on a 1.3-liter turbo-four engine and offer a combined output of 240 horsepower. Alternatively, base models could come with a more conventional 2.4-liter naturally-aspirated inline-four engine, similar to the one that powers the current generation Compass, and offers around 180 horsepower. Range-topping models may be equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine with 270 horsepower. All variants are likely to come with a 9-speed automatic transmission.
At this point, there is no information available to the public regarding the interior details of the 2024 Ram 1200. However, based on industry trends and Ram’s reputation for producing quality interiors, it’s reasonable to speculate that the interior of the 2024 Ram 1200 will be car-like, with attractive aesthetics, a range of technological features, and high-quality materials.
Since the double or crew cab will be the only version offered, we can expect plenty of passenger space in both rows, with enough room to accommodate adults comfortably. Additionally, the vehicle should have a decently-sized cargo area to complement the spacious cabin. However, until Ram releases official information on the interior of the 2024 Ram 1200, we can only make educated guesses based on previous models and industry trends.
Although the company has been tight-lipped about the details of the upcoming 2024 Ram 1200 pickup, there are a few things that are clear. One significant detail is that the new pickup will not have any similarities with the Ram 1200. That model was essentially a rebadged version of the Mitsubishi Triton that was sold in limited regions.
The 2024 Ram 1200 will be an entirely new model built on the small architecture, which is also used for various SUVs in Jeep’s lineup. This means that the new Ram 1200 pickup will ride on a unibody platform, putting it in direct competition with the Maverick. As of now, it appears that the new Ram 1200 pickup will only be available in a Double Cab layout.
2024 Ram 1200 Release Date, Price
The forthcoming 2024 Ram 1200 will reportedly hit the roads in later stages of 2023. While there are rumors about this pickup coming to US, that won’t happen anytime soon. We are waiting to hear more details about this model, including its starting price.
