Dodge Cab Style Guide

Dodge pickups entered the market in 1917. Early on they donned the Ram head badge as a hood ornament. However, the name "Dodge Ram" was not used until 1981 (it was previously called "The Adventurer"). Eventually in 2010, Chrysler split Dodge Ram into separate entities - "Dodge" and "Ram" - we will review their cab styles separately, although they share the same cab-style types.
