2009 Ram Revealed

70 posts in this topic

Well, that certainly is one hell of a good looking truck. And I don't even like trucks.

If the pictures reflect the real product, this may be a badly needed hit for Chrysler LLC.

looks pretty good to me. I'd still buy a Chevy/GMC based on family experiences, but if I were buying a truck on looks, that would be at or near the top of the list.

looks to me like Chrysler just warmed over its last truck... even the hood and grill look exactly the same, just now it has more defined creases...

Two things I like about this truck:

1. Once again, the example of what Toyota tried to do and fail'd.

2. The Dodge interior, while crappy in its cars, actually works for the Ram.

Looks very Dodge in nature. I thought they were finally going to put some effort on the interiors. What happened? This one looks just as cheap as the minivans and the Sebring.

Love the look, inside and out. The engine upgrades and coil spring rear suspension are cool. The side compartments seem to steal bedfloor space, but are a good idea for most buyers who would rather have easy access to things they'd otherwise have to crawl into the bed to retrieve.

Needs a 6-speed automatic, and it should have had the 4.0L V6 standard.

I'm liking the outside better than the current generation; the interior not so much. Glad to see Dodge toning down the huge snout.

I like the new Ram too....in fact better than what is supposed to be the new F-150. I especially like the exhaust cutouts in the rear bumper!

Interior looks SWEET.....! Wow....! In fact, it's funny because it looks like a cross between recent Ford (styling-wise) and GM (nice-looking switchgear) interiors. I'll reserve final judgement until I can see/feel interior materials....but it looks like it's much better finished.

Are we looking at the same truck? The new shark-nose looks, more aggressive to me.

Honestly... very boring. Looks like it could have come out in 1998, not 2008.

Since the overall shape of a pickup truck can't be altered much since it's a

case of form follows function, the headlights, taillights, greenhouse & grille

should really give it some personality, this is just a mind refresh of the 2007

Ram... nothing exciting, nothing fresh.

The new Silverado didn't excite me all that much in terms of styling but it

seems the other manufacturers are making their pickups look so lame that

in contrast the GMC & Chevy will become the best looking trucks by far.

Wow, I absolutely love the interior this thing. They really did go all out. It does remind me of the F-150's interior but I like this better. Very nice earth tone color palette with its tans and browns highlighted by chrome and silver. I don't even mind the plood. Based on the image the materials looks very nice too...I like the stitching on the dash. Not a bad idea at all to borrow an element from the CTS.

I like this philosophy they have for the Ram interior and think they should follow up with the rest of the lineup.

We also no longer have a ‘base’ interior, just higher levels of luxury throughout the series.

The exterior looks like a nice evolution of the Ram...I like the Charger inspired grill which makes it look more aggressive, yet the truck looks handsome too.

Looks to have a lot of neat features and upgrades too.

Can't wait to see it in person.

Aggressive = good, but the current one's grille looks more massive to me. Maybe it's just the angle or the color, but it looks like the headlights are getting bigger (good, IMO) and the grill smaller. :unsure:

Actually the Chevy truck looks very clean and fresh. The more I see it in person the more I like it.

I love this thing, the got alot of details right on the new Ram, and the interior is great. Just too bad gas is $3.00 plus per gallon. I look forward to driving one.

Not big on trucks, but it looks damn good inside and out. Right up there with the chevy and gmc in my opinion.

I'm not too hot on the exterior...

I actually really like the front, but I think it looks awkward with the greenhouse and the rear of the truck. It almost seems as if they've molded 2 designs together; a very curvey, muscular design for the front with a boxy, distinctly DCX rear and cab. (Reminds me of the new vans and the Caliber) I think it'll do okay though, given the competition. The Tundra looks like a whale, the Titan look 90's cheap, the Silverado and Sierra are attractive but VERY conservative (which the Sierra pulls off, but the Silvy not too much) and the new F150 looks good, but nothing on the side of excellent.

The interior is beautiful IMO... If they've actually put some money into the materials (which it look as if they have) the interior is an out-of-the-park success IMO!

You're quite blind then.

The more I see the Chevy less I like it. I still like it and would rate it above the Tundra and titan, but it looks busy in back and the front looks somewhat overwrought with the massive chrome grill. The HD versions are much worse though.Although it looks better with a monotone front end. The Sierra looks a lot better IMO.

I wasn't sure about the exterior at first but after seeing more photos of it on allpar I like it a lot. I'm looking forward to some hi-res photos.

I like how the Crew Cab is more manageable in size and looks far better proportioned, but that the Quad Cab model sticks around and has regular doors.
