2009 Dodge Ram 1500: It's No Megacab and It's Not a Problem

January 14, 2010


You might remember the Megacab. It was Dodge's attempt to out-crewcab Chevrolet and Ford and it was a marketing failure.

It was huge in a way that wasn't necessary. It made the exterior of the Ram look out of proportion and the benefits inside seemed minimal. It didn't last very long.

The latest version of the Dodge Ram has a more traditional crew cab and as you can see, there is more than enough passenger room. Cargo room is pretty solid too if you fold up the seat bottoms.

Sure, instances will come up when a little extra room in back would help. But having a 10-liter diesel up front might help every once in a while too and Dodge hasn't bothered making that an option. Yet.
