Has the durability of the Ram 1500 upgraded recently?

For several years, the Ram 1500 has rated as the most durable of half-ton trucks. During the early 2000 years, Dodge began experimenting with reducing the weight of its line of trucks while increasing durability. In 2019, the engineers at Ram completed a generational change that successfully dropped 250 pounds of weight while stiffening the frame.

The key to durability in trucks is the percentage of high-strength steel used in the lower parts of the vehicle and the percentage of military-grade aluminum alloys used in the upper body. Aluminum alloys have proven to be more resistant to rust while providing a lighter material that is tough as nails. Those alloys are ideal for upper body parts. The weight shed from the body allows thicker frame components to increase load carrying potential.
