AFTER 22 YEARS, LAST D-MODEL DODGE RAM PICKUP ROLLS OFF CHRYSLER'S DODGE CITY ASSEMBLY PLANT LINE

 WARREN, Mich., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The last D-model Dodge Ram pickup, the 2,867,766th, produced at Chrysler's Dodge City Complex- Warren Truck Assembly Plant, rolled off the final assembly line at 12:10 p.m. today after a 22-year production run.
 Hundreds of plant employees cheered the roll-off of the 1993 emerald green vehicle with Production Manager Gary Mulawa behind the wheel and Local Union 140 President Randall Pearson as his passenger.
 The two-wheel-drive, D250 standard cab vehicle features an automatic transmission and 5.2-liter "Magnum" V-8 engine.
 The vehicle was purchased by Michigan State University through Van Dyke Dodge in Warren.
 The D-model Ram was first produced at Dodge City in 1971. Although it has undergone a series of changes and facelifts over the years, the basic platform has remained the same.
 Dodge City will launch the all-new full-size Dodge Ram pickup in July after an investment of more than $125 million. The 1994 Dodge Ram, which will be in dealership showrooms in the fall, will be the first full-size pickup with a driver-side air bag.
