Autoblog Reviews 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab 4x2

Our good friends at Autoblog have just finished getting to know the all-new 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 inside and out. They've posted their in-depth review of a fully-loaded Laramie Crew Cab 4x2 with a $44,140 sticker price.

Read on to find out their verdict of this unique coil-spring contender among half-ton pickups.


Nice looking Truck, but there are a few problem. #1- The headliner inside the cab its SAG in the middle and would eventually will fall down on your head. #2- The 5.7 Hemi sound good, but I don't like V-4 and V-8 mode system and so the GM... If I wanted a 4 cylinder I buy a truck with 4 cylinder. The thing is it will never run on V-4 mode because you're be pulling your bout or hauling. Now if empty and crusing yeah I see that. But just not great idea. Now the last one they are finalli catching on of putting a brake controller in sometime in March. Other than that Its is a good looking Truck!! I'm not trying to put down the Dodge, I'm just sharing my opinion. Everybody has different thought too.

The interior is great. Unless the cap companies can come up with a cap for the Ram Box equipped truck, I see the Ram Box as useless to us that want a cap. Good Luck Chrysler!

Way to go Ralph Gilles on the styling of this one. Making the sexiest truck and most aerodynamic truck all in one is one tough feat. Not to mention 20mpg with 390 hp. 0-60 in reg 4x2 in 5.7 sec. smoothes ride in a pickup without sacrifcing towing or payload....outstanding. Dodge you hit a homerun on this one. I can't wait to come home and sell them. It's fun selling a product that sells it self.

My only comment is this:

- There is no one truck that is the best. If we could combine features, then I would like to see a truck with:

dodge 5.7 motor
chevy's transmission (6 veloc)
chevy's suspension
ford king ranch interior
gmc sierra denali exterior
ram box
delphi quadrasteer
toyota's reliability
Toyota's Priu's MPGs !!!!

Once you can create this, tell me so that I can purchase two, one for me and one for my wife !!!!
