2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: No Need for Fake Wood
December 31, 2014
One of the many upgrades with the Laramie trim level of the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is this "wood" trim. It's on the doors front and rear along with a few sections of the dashboard.
The Laramie trim level is expensive, so the folks at Ram may have felt compelled to spruce it up with some extra bits of trim. But as you can see, putting fake wood trim next to marginal black plastic doesn't result in a very luxurious look. It just looks odd.
Now I'm not sure what would be better. Fake carbon fiber is never a good substitute, but some "nice" plastic trim would be just fine. It's a truck after all. An expensive truck for sure but one that doesn't need fake stuff to make it look like it's worth the money.
