With everything being truck insane nowadays, here comes a new mini truck in the global market, the Ram 700.
Enter the Ram 700, the carmaker's newest truck that's bound for the Latin American market.
There are four different versions available: two- and four-door configurations for single and double-cab models.
The base spec offers a 1.4-liter naturally aspirated gasoline engine belonging to the outdated Fire series (85 hp / 63 kW, 122 Nm / 91 lb-ft). Likewise, the Ram 700 that debuted today is a Fiat Strada at heart. Dimensionally, it measures 4470 mm in length and 1730 mm in width. It looks exactly like the Fiat inside and out, bar the badging and Ram-specific front grille.
The 700 does come with a few nice features, including a 7 inch infotainment touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, LED headlights, tire pressure monitoring, a backup camera, and speed limiter. For safety, the equipment list includes four airbags, advanced traction control with e-locker, ABS with EBD, power-assist steering, ISOFIX Anchors, electronic stability control, and hill-start assist. It's basically a rebadged Fiat Strada, but it has the makings of an ideal workhorse. The Laramie-trimmed 700 comes equipped with FCA's turbocharged 1.3L Firefly I-4 that makes 99 PS (98 horsepower) and 128 Nm (94 pound-feet) of torque.
The 2021 Ram 700 is now being manufactured at the FCA Betim Assembly unit, which also manufactures other Fiat models, including the Strada.
