About Us

Ram Trucks are distributed by American Special Vehicles, a venture between Walkinshaw Automotive Group and Ateco Automotive.

Walkinshaw Automotive Group’s famed engineering skills are used to completely remanufacture the Ram vehicles to right hand drive on a purpose built production line in Melbourne. Walkinshaw’s engineers and manufacturing teams have designed hundreds of OE quality parts and implemented a completely unique build process with the objective of producing a right hand drive Ram Truck that meets the engineering standards, quality, and refinement of the left hand drive product. Millions of dollars and tens of thousands of man-hours have been invested to ensure the Ram Trucks engineered by American Special Vehicles set a new benchmark.

Ateco Automotive contributes its import, distribution, network, sales and marketing expertise to American Special Vehicles.

The American Special Vehicle's Ram Trucks are produced with full volume import approval, meaning they are fully compliant with New Zealand Design Rules and American Special Vehicles will be the sole importer of Ram models covered by that approval.
