Over 1 Million Recalls on 2015-2017 Ram 1500s

Over 1 Million Recalls on 2015-2017 Ram 1500s

640 × 480

A recall has been issued for 1.1 million north American Ram trucks manufactured between 2015 and 2017. The recall is for a fault tailgate latch that could potentially open by itself.


The recall affects trucks equipped with a power latch mechanism and beds of either 5 ft-7 in or 6 ft-4 in in length. Specifically, 2015-2017 Ram trucks equipped with the power latch and beds of either 5 ft-7 in or 6 ft-4 in in length. Trucks with the 8ft truck bed are not affected. Neither are those trucks fitted with a manual locking tailgate instead of a power lock.


Loose load

Apparently the power lock actuator control assembly may be faulty and can fall apart or fail during use. The result could be a load being let loose and potentially falling into the road behind the truck. This is a situation nobody wants so owners are being urged to book their truck in to have the power latch changed for a different one.


If you own a truck affected by this recall, book it in for a service at your nearest Car Nation Canada location. We will check for recall notices and perform any necessary work on your behalf.


2018 Ram 2500

The 2018 Ram 2500 is a workhorse truck that can be seen on almost any city street. From utilities to workmen, road maintenance to contractors, the 2018 Ram 2500 is ubiquitous and for good reason. It’s a solid truck that has proven itself reliable, capable and unstoppable.


The design is definitely of the Ram family. A big front end and high hood and lots of bodywork up front. It is an imposing fascia but not overly so. The rest of the design is kept purposely simple with unfussy panels around the truck and load bed. A solid gate at back completes the look.


Ram trucks are notorious for their interiors. Comfortable, well equipped, spacious and nicely put together. The interior of the 2018 Ram 2500 is no different. The driving position is superb with a supportive seat and great visibility all round. Controls all feel solid and there is work and storage space within the front cabin too.


There are three engine options for the 2018 Ram 2500. A 5.7-litre V8 good for 383 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, a 6.4-litre V8 good for 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque and a 6.7-litre Cummins diesel good for 350 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. All use a six speed manual or automatic transmission.


Featuring lots of technology and options, the 2018 Ram 2500 is as feature rich as you could like. With impressive hauling and towing capability, this could be the only truck you ever need.
