2009 Dodge Ram

Looks pretty good. This and the '08 Dakota make for a handsome lineup of pickups.

I like it. If they went back to a real extended cab with rear hinged doors, this could make my shopping list. Also nice Dodge still offers two-tone paint.

Yes, this looks quite polished, and less garish than the current--although still cool to me--has gotten.

Plus, as rumored and even seen here, should have several cool items that make it unique. Coil spring rear suspension for 1/2 ton models, the locking bedside boxes (seen in the picture), etc. As long as they also have the drivetrains properly updated AND the interior can match the exterior's polish...good stuff.

Keeps the Dodge look, but more refined. Really intrigued by that "slip" of it being posted on the 2008 Ram accessories site...almost TOO easy, and more like an on purpose sneak peak for those who happen to look there. Visually much more appealing--to me--than the pleasant, but almost so bland it hurts (and awkward, in many Chevy models...that front...) GM's, which are kind of the Camry of the truck market visually. The new Ford will be getting questionable too, with the new chrome bar face kinda mashed onto a largely current gen body...so Tundra and Ram will continue as my favorite lookers.

Of course...everyone likes something different :AH-HA_wink:

Ew, the Tundra is absolutely hideous. Horribly proportioned, with an ugly face and interior.

I like it a lot, it looks far more polished than the current model, which I still love, but still manages to look tough. I'm looking forward to seeing all of the tricks it's supposed to have up its sleeve and seeing the interior.

Why does it look like part new Tundra and part 1994 Ram?

Or is it just me?

I see it too. I think if someone slapped a T on the grille everyone here would think it is one of the ugliest trucks.

Umm, am I the only one that thinks its 100% clear that this is a photoshop? Look how fake the headlights look, look how weird the bumper looks (specifically the left side where it connects to the painted part). There are also some oddities in the paint (right in front of the first front door cutline), and the headlight on the left side clearly is more curved on the top than the one on the right. I would be very surprised if this was the real deal.

It's not bad, I sort of like it.. but it's like the current one and the Tundra were thrown into a blender and then melted. The Ram keeps going downhill in terms of looks. The original 1994 design is the best looking to my eyes, and still one of the best looking trucks of all time. Same with the previous Dakota and Durango.

I think you're right looking at it more closely...the bumper looks messed up (smudged) on the left side.

Would I be the only one to think (and say) that this truck is too GMC or Ford and doesn't look Bold, or Mean or enough like a Menacing Dodge truck??

Lighting and some of it being blurry makes it look like a chop. If it's the real deal, I'm simply disappointed in how terrible their design has become.

It's not a photochop.

Well in that case, the picture quality is terrible.

I personally don't like it much. It looks like its from the late 90's/early 2000s to me. It's better than the current one I suppose, but I'd take a T900 or F-150 over it in the looks department.
