2009 Dodge Ram: Will It Make a Good Old Truck?

April 19, 2010


Our Dodge Ram is a seriously nice truck. On top of its beefy towing and hauling towing capacities, it's got a comfortable ride, a huge interior and enough luxury features to rival a Lexus ES350's. Other than fitting into compact parking spaces, you can pretty much do it all with this thing. But it does make me wonder what our Ram will be like in 35 years.

Eds-f150.JPGI dig old 4WD pickups with dents, faded paint, big off-road tires, solid-axle front suspensions and maybe a dog in the back for good measure. Editor Hellwig's got a '75 Ford F-250 that I'm a bit jealous of. Yet I just can't picture our Ram as an old 4WD truck. Nobody's going to want to break it in because it's just too darn nice.
