No fewer than 20 part numbers were filed with the federal watchdog for the iffy modules, namely 12 for 2023 model year trucks and 8 for 2024 model year trucks. Rather obviously, the remedy comes in the form of a redesigned module with a conforming anti-jam component and a revised circuit board layout.
All recalled vehicles are believed to require the redesigned module, with dealers instructed to first inspect and then – if necessary – replace the steering column control module. Owners can determine whether their Ram-branded pickups are recalled or not by running the VIN on the NHTSA's website.
The UAW Stellantis Hourly Agreement from November 2023 reveals that the DS-generation 1500 Classic will be discontinued sometime in 2024. At press time, you can get one for a cool $32,345 at the very least, sans the destination freight charge. By comparison, the DT-generation 1500 is $38,555.
Ram may have revealed the MY25 refresh for the half-ton line in November 2023, but there's no information available on the changes coming to the half-ton line. For future reference, the 2500 and 3500 are priced at $46,715 and $48,850, respectively. As for the work-oriented Chassis Cab, that'd be $47,460.
