For years, Fords F-Series trucks has been the best-selling truck in the U.S. with the Chevrolet Silverado coming in second and Ram placing third. And usually, Ram ends up placing a distant third. Today, things have changed. In the 2019 model year, well, the distant third spot switched hands. Today, Ram trucks are firmly in the number 2 slot. With the help of Flagler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we’ll take a look at some of the details that catapulted the Ram truck line into that spot.
