Ram just revealed the all-new Ram 700 pickup based on the second generation Fiat Strada. North American buyers will not get Ram 700 as it is only for Latin American markets including Mexico and 13 other countries.
Ram 700 is not completely a new car as it is a rebadged version of the Fiat Strada. It looks exactly the same as the Fiat and the only change is in its grille with Ram badging. Ram 700 is a small unibody pickup available in both double cab and single cab bodies.
Under the hood, Ram 700 uses the same engine as the Fiat Strada. It is a 1.4-liter Fire Evo gasoline engine 84 hp and 118 nm of torque. Buyers who want a more powerful model can opt for the 1.3-liter Firefly turbocharged engine with 98 hp and 128 nm of torque. The only transmission is a 5-speed manual transmission that transfers power to front wheels. There is no all-wheel drive option available for the Ram 700. Ram 700 can carry up to 750 kg of payload and its towing capacity is 400 kg. The cargo capacity also varies between 691 to 1,143 liters depending on the cab.
Inside the cabin, the Ram 700 is again very identical to the Fiat Strada and changes are limited to the central part of the steering wheel. Standard equipment on the Ram 700 includes a 7-inch touch screen for the infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, speed limiter, rearview camera and tire pressure monitoring system.
Ram 700 is going on sale in Latin America from this November.
