1995Edit

As the Dodge Ram Wagon and Van inched toward the quarter-century mark, Dodge continued to invest in these full-size stalwarts. The 1995 enhancements were designed to keep the van current until it received a complete and well-deserved revamping some time down the road.

This year, a standard driver's airbag and 4-wheel antilock brakes came on board the Wagon. Also new were an optional upgraded sound system, power driver's seat, chrome-styled steel wheels and overhead courtesy/map lights.

A brand-new standard feature throughout the line was an underseat passenger-side storage drawer. In addition, the sliding door mechanism had been refined.
