Remanufactured Dodge Ram Truck Engines for Sale

The Dodge Brothers started their auto manufacturing business with some of the knowledge they accumulated from Henry Ford back in the early 1900s. In 1917, Dodge got into the truck business and introduced the D-Series, which was Dodge’s answer to Ford’s F-series. The Dodge boys went out of their way to build a better truck so they started using the Ram as a hood ornament in 1933 to show how tough their trucks were in the thirties and through the war years, but the Ram ornament was dropped during the fragile fifties, rebellious sixties, and the oil embargo seventies.

In 1981, Dodge decided to market those D-series trucks another way. Dodge reintroduced the Ram and a new brand was born. The old mascot was back with a 225 cubic inch (3.litre) 95 horsepower slant-6, which was a product of the Kennedy years. Dodge also offered a 318 cubic inch (5.2 litre) 140 horsepower V8 as well as a 360 cubic inch 170 horsepower V8 for consumers who wanted to feel that Ram power when they put the petal to the metal. The 1980s Ram trucks had locking front hubs, a variety of cab configurations, and a 4-speed gearbox.

The Ram D150 Miser was introduced in 1982. It lived up to its name when it came to gas mileage. The slant-6 with the 4-speed transmission was for economical minded truck drivers that weren’t concerned about to many frills. A 4-wheel drive Miser was introduced in 1983, but the name was dropped in 1984 and the D100 and W100 appeared on showroom floors. In 1989, the old slant-6 engine was retired and a new fuel injected 3.9 litre 125 horsepower V6 took its place. The 5.9 litre V8 also got fuel injection that year, and the 175 horsepower Cummins turbodiesel was another option.

An all new Ram lineup was introduced in 1994. The model names changed to the 1500 (half ton), 2500 (3/4 ton), and 3500 (one ton). The engine choices were the 3.9 litre 176 horsepower V6, 5.2 litre 220 horsepower V8, and two 5.9 litre 230 horsepower V8s. One of those engines was rated heavy-duty with low-end torque. A 5.9 litre Cummins turbodiesel with 175 horsepower and 420 ft-lbs of torque for manual transmissions, and 400 ft-lbs for the automatic was also in the lineup. That same year the V10 made its debut with 300 horsepower and 450 ft-lbs of torque.
