Chrysler is also recalling all 2018 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 Pickup Trucks built before April 1, 2018 that are equipped with a power locking tailgate. The tailgate actuator limiter tab in the recalled Pickup Trucks may fracture and cause the tailgate to unlatch and open while driving.

According to the NHTSA, if the tailgate opens while the vehicle is being driven, cargo may fall out the vehicle and create a road hazard, increasing the risk of crash.

Chrysler will notify registered owners and dealers will repair the tailgate latch, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 28, 2019. Owners may contact FCA US customer service at 1-800-853-1403. FCA US’s designation for this recall is V44. Note: 2015-2017 model year Ram 1500 Pickup Trucks with truck beds other than eight (8) foot, are currently covered under NHTSA recall 18V-486 for this issue.
