2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Small but Useful Storage Space
July 02, 2014
This compartment in the center console of our 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is not large. As you can see, it's barely deep enough to accommodate a box of delicious orange Tic Tacs.
Some might see this as a major oversight, since everything in a full-size truck must be full-sized right? Not so.
This compartment is actually quite useful since you can put smaller items that you need quickly right at the top of the otherwise giant center console. If there was nothing but a giant black hole of space I would probably just put that stuff in one of the cupholders.
Instead I can have my wallet, keys and plenty of Tic Tacs at the ready without leaving them out in the open. It's a nicely thought out piece of design that goes against the usual "bigger is better" mantra that typically rules truck design.
