2009 (Dodge) Ram 1500
December 03, 2009
With the recent news that the "Dodge" branding would soon be disappearing (becoming simply "Ram"), I took a census of exactly how many alterations would be forthcoming for the 2010-model year. It turns out, not too many. Also, I noticed that our Ram has "Sync." I thought that was a Ford thing. Jump with me...
Oh, wait, that button just makes all temperatures concur.
On a completely different topic, I noticed the truck's idle was lumpier than I had anticipated. You can't see it on the tachometer, and it doesn't change with the AC on or off, but you can feel the V8's subtle rumble in the seat of your pants from a stop up to about 10 mph if you don't touch the accelerator. Vehicle wrangler, Mike Schmidt, said I was the first to mention it, so we'll have it checked out with the next service visit.
