Weekend Warrior Duty - 2009 Dodge Ram Long-Term Road Test

2009 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Long Term Road Test

2009 Dodge Ram: Weekend Warrior Duty

June 24, 2010


No lumber. No towing. No hard hat job sites. Just bicycles and fruit.

A couple of weekends ago a put our long-term 2009 Dodge Ram though the Suburbanites Truck Test.

The rigorous battery of tests included:

1) Haul the wife and kids around like any other car, SUV or minivan.

2) Haul the family and their bikes to the beach for a leisurely afternoon ride.

3) Haul us down to Irvine (60 freeway miles or so one way) tothe pick your own strawberries farm. (And no I didn't do donuts in the farm's dirt parking lot. Okay, so I did.)

By Sunday night I concluded that the coil sprung Ram is my favorite of the full-size truck choices. It's perfect for my city boy needs. Itsride and comfort levels are exemplary and its interior appointments are without a doubt class leading.

Still, not so sure I would get the Ram Box.
