    2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Dodge Ram 1500

    • The double-decked glove box is the only useful glove box in the group, almost every small storage nook in the cab has a rubber liner to damp out rattles, the dashboard sports a 115-volt outlet, and though the rear cabin still has a driveline tunnel down the middle, it also has a pair of fairly deep underfloor storage wells and two storage bins under the seat.

    What reviewers liked least about the Dodge Ram 1500

    • Although the Ram retains a traditional live axle, it has forsaken traditional leaf springs for a coil-spring setup. This has produced two effects: one positive, the other not. Positive: ride quality is distinctly superior to the Ram's rivals, particularly in the dirt. Negative: The coil-spring rear suspension limits towing capacity to 8700 pounds max. Which do you think our scoring prioritized, comfort or towing? Right, comfort.

    • Needs lots of room to park.

    Dodge Ram 1500 Comparisons

    • Though the Dodge was only 40 pounds lighter than the F-150, it was quicker than either of its rivals, as you'd expect with a 390-hp Hemi under the hood and a 3.55:1 rear end. The downside of this, of course, was the worst fuel economy, 14 mpg. Even so, the thrust of that engine and the sounds that go with it are hard to resist.

    Best one-liner about the Dodge Ram 1500

    • Dodge changes the state of the art - and the rules - in the full-size pickup game.

      - Car and Driver
    • There's enough bright stuff - chrome-plated plastic - on the front of this bad boy [in Laramie trim] to make it visible on Google Earth.
