Understanding Dodge Ram Transmissions

An Overview of a Favorite Truck’s Transmission

It’s no secret that the Dodge Ram is one of the most popular trucks in the United States, ranking alongside big sellers made by several other major manufacturers. Many Ram enthusiasts drive their trucks a long time, eventually raising the potential that they’ll need transmission replacement. For this, count on the Transmission Exchange Center in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. We don’t replace this component in your truck, but we’re a well-respected supplier of remanufactured transmissions for your favorite make and model.

Through the Years

Like the Transmission Exchange Center, the Dodge Ram has a long history in the automotive industry. The older style Ram (the D100 of the 1980’s) provided prospective owners with a choice of a 3- or 4-speed automatic transmission or a 4- or 5- speed manual. Ram 1500’s, around through multiple generations since their 1994 release, have offered a few more options through the years. The 2nd generation Rams (1994-2001) were available with a 4-speed automatic as well as 5- or 6-speed manuals. Generation 3 (2002-2009) featured either a 4-, 5-, or 6-speed automatic and a 5-, or 6-speed manual. Made from 2010-2017, the 4th generation Ram boasted the option of 4-, 5-, 6-, and 8-speed automatics or a 6-speed manual transmission. Finally, the 5th generation (introduced in 2018) comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission regardless of which motor the truck features. Overall, the Dodge Ram and its transmissions have proven themselves to be reliable. This particular truck continues to be a favorite of those in the market for heavy duty vehicles. As with any auto line, a problematic transmission trend will occasionally make its way into the market. This phenomenon is most notable in trucks made in 2012 (jerking), 2014 (shifting) (multiple recalls), 2015 (difficult downshifting), and a 2018 recall of multiple years of heavy duty models.
