Sept. 10, 2019—Fiat Chrysler has recalled millions of Ram trucks because the tailgates might open, reported The Detroit Free Press.

The recall includes more than 2 million older Ram trucks. The latest announcement is an expansion of a recall from this spring, but the updated recall is larger, covering an additional 693,128 trucks and adding to a separate 1.1 million truck recall announced last year.

FCA said the defect could lead to accidents because of a loss of unrestrained cargo. Cargo could cause road hazards to operators and occupants of other vehicles.

The recall affects 2015-2017 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups equipped with an 8-foot bed and a power locking tailgate, all 2013-2014 and 2018 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups built before April 1, 2018, with a 6- or 8-foot bed and a power locking tailgate.
