2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Long Term Road Test

2009 Dodge Ram 1500: You Loook Marvelous, Absolutely Marvelous

July 09, 2009

Pound-for-pound our new long-term Dodge Ram Laramie Crew Cab might have more chrome on it than any other vehicle currently on sale. That's not a dig. We like chrome. It looks good. We like shiny things. Some of us even like Las Vegas.

But recently my nearly 4-year-old daughter took a rare break from her tricycle laps around the back yard to demonstrate another use for the shiny stuff: coif checking. Once the hair-clip was returned to its rightful place, she hopped back aboard her red machine and continued the race.

Dodge has not yet figured out how to make customers pay extra for this dual-function chrome bumper.
