In addition, Ram will be in full holiday spirit as three trucks will be fully wrapped to complement the float designs of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Willy Wonka and Chocolate Factory and, most importantly, a specially wrapped Ram truck will be towing the star of the parade, Santa Claus.
"It is a privilege for the Ram Truck brand to be the official truck of one America's most celebrated occasions," said Tim Kuniskis, Ram brand CEO – Stellantis. "Our Ram trucks are built to serve all our customers everywhere, and we are honored to be just a small part of the magic that happens during the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade as our full portfolio of award-winning trucks pulls these floats down the streets of Manhattan."
Ram will not only help transport the floats down the parade route but will also assist in moving other parade materials needed to produce the annual celebration, from tool containers to costumes and much more, in the lead up to the start of the procession on Thanksgiving Day. The Ram Truck brand provided the Macy's parade with more than 70 trucks and Ram ProMaster commercial vans, many of which are used for behind-the-scenes functions leading up to the parade start.
