SiriusXM® satellite radio is a big part of many people’s driving experience. It’s common for people to require satellite radio in their truck.
Do you own a Ram truck, or are you in the market for one? Do your employees drive RAM Promaster vans? Are you a big fan of SiriusXM® satellite radio? Do you want to make daily driving more enjoyable for your fleet drivers? If your answer to these questions is yes, then this guide will benefit you.
Below, you will find answers to the three most common questions about satellite radio.
Do All RAM Trucks Come With SiriusXM® Satellite Radio?
Satellite radio is not available on all Ram trucks and trim levels. Ram decided to make SiriusXM® available on only the more expensive trim levels.
It’s because Ram knows how much of a hot commodity satellite radio is. They want to encourage people to splurge on the more expensive trim levels just to get satellite radio.
So if you opt for a higher trim level, your factory radio may come with SiriusXM® satellite radio.
If My Ram Doesn’t Have SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, Can I Install It Myself?
Do you own a Ram without satellite radio built-in? Do you have your heart set on a Ram 1500 or 2500 that doesn’t come with satellite radio? If so, we have good news. You can add satellite radio to your Ram. Here are three different solutions to consider:
- Buy a stand-alone satellite radio. Mount it on your dash, and then connect it to your Ram’s FM modulator and electrical system.
- Buy a satellite radio receiver unit and then connect it to your Ram’s AUX input.
- Install a VAIS satellite radio adapter kit. Whether your truck or van has the UConnect system or the factory radio, VAIS Technology has you covered.
Out of all the solutions listed above, the VAIS satellite radio adapter kit is the only one that doesn’t create any dash clutter. Read this post for more information about each option.
Does RAM Offer A Genuine OEM Satellite Radio Adapter For Their Trucks?
The answer here is no. There is no such thing as a genuine OEM satellite radio adapter for Ram trucks. It’s because RAM wants to encourage its customers to splurge on trucks with higher trim levels that already come with satellite radio. Luckily, aftermarket solutions exist. See the previous section for a list of aftermarket solutions.
