If you’re a fan of small pickup trucks, there’s no doubt you’re already a little jealous of the Mexican market since it already offers mid-size offerings like the Volkswagen Amarok, Toyota Hilux and even the international (current-gen) Ford Ranger. Now there’s one more downsized truck available to our neighbors to the south, the 2015 Ram 750.
Based off the recently updated 2014 Fiat Strada pickup, which is made in Brazil, the 2015 Ram 750 is offered to Mexican buyers in two configurations: the two-passenger, long bed Single Cab or the four-passenger, three-door Club Cab. Styling differences are limited to Ram badges on the grille, tailgate and steering wheel leaving the overall look of the car-based Strada untouched.

Under the hood, the 2015 Ram 750 is only offered with a single drivetrain configuration, which features a 115-hp 1.6-liter four-cylinder E.Torq engine paired to a five-speed manual transmission. There is no indication as to what the towing and hauling abilities are for this truck, but the Fiat model has a payload of 630 kg (1,389 pounds) with the Crew Cab and 705 kg (1,554 pounds) with the Single Cab. Bed dimensions for the Crew Cab are 1300 mm (51.1 inches) wide, 1082 mm (42.6 inches) long and 540 mm (21.3 inches) tall, while the Single Cab cargo bed measure 1300 mm (51.1 inches) wide, 1685 mm (66.3 inches) long and 540 mm (21.3 inches) tall.

The Ram 750 name is likely supposed to indicate that this Fiat-based truck is half of a Ram 1500, but it comes off a little more reminiscent of when the Dodge Ram used three-digit model names. Using the Ram 50 or even a Ram 1000 moniker may have been better, but that’s just nitpicking. Here’s where U.S. truck buyers will really get jealous – pricing for the 2015 Ram 750 starts at 182,900 pesos ($13,841 U.S. and 10,789 euros) for the Single Cab and 241,900 pesos ($18,306 U.S. and 14,269 euros) for the Club Cab.

We reached out to Chrysler de Mexico for comment and more information on this truck, but we’ve yet to hear anything back yet.
