2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Long Term Road Test

2009 Dodge Ram: Designer Shopping Cart

November 10, 2009


This past weekend our 2009 Dodge Ram didn't do any heavy lifting. It didn't haul anything, tow anything, or crush anything. Instead it just transported a few girls from shopping malls to outdoor eateries, same as any comfortable sedan.

And none of the women complained about it either. Once loaded up, the ladies seemed mostly impressed with its un-trucklike qualities. The roomy rear seat, the softly padded center console, the contrasting interior stitching, as well as the Ram's nav, Satellite radio and heated seats were all complimented.

But I felt kinda felt bad for the Ram, making it play shopping cart all day. Especially when it'ssoobvious that itcan do so much more.
