Spy shots show the new Ram 1200 recently tested its winter performance in Northern Sweden. According to CarBuzz, the 2024 edition of the pickup, which is slated for a 2024 introduction, was caught testing with other Stellantis brand vehicles, such as the Fiat Toro. However, the eagle eyed will have noted that it was shod with Nokian Tyres.
You can’t see which tyres are on the vehicle, but the size 235/60 R18 (common on pickups) is visible on the sidewall. WhatTyre’s database of over 300,000 tyre reveals it is likely to be either the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 SUV studless or the Hakkapeliitta 10 SUV studded tyre, both of which are designed specifically for winter conditions.
Just because the Ram is being tested on Nokian tyres, it doesn’t mean that the Nokian will be on the latest Ram when it comes out. But, with testing taking place in northern Sweden, Nokian rubber may have been fitted as a studded tyre option. Nevertheless, the fact that Nokian tyres were fitted is a vote of confidence in the Finnish tyremaker and its products.
