Reviewers across the board say the 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 is one of the most stylish trucks on the road today.

The current 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 is "available in four trim levels (ST, SXT, SLT, and Laramie), three different cab configurations (regular, Quad Cab...and Mega Cab)," and "two bed sizes," according to Car and Driver. This incredible variety of body styles on the Dodge Ram 1500 leads Automobile to write that the "Dodge Ram lineup covers the full-size-pickup spectrum" completely by itself.

Overall, there were not many changes to the truck's exterior. The Dodge Ram 1500 2008 version carries on the tradition of "big-rig exterior styling," according to Edmunds, and The Auto Channel says it "still has the most truck-like look and personality of all the entries in this most popular segment of the automotive market." Automobile adds that the "chiseled, look-at-me styling of the Ram 1500 makes it a standout among the domestic competition." The 2008 Dodge Ram 1500's looks are highlighted by an "enormous grille" that is "the most striking exterior feature," according to Automobile. Edmunds calls the Dodge Ram 1500 2008 "the manliest of this very manly vehicle category," and the experts at TheCarConnection.com agree. They go on to say the Ram 1500 is a "thoroughly competent all-American macho machine."

Moving inside the strong exterior of the Dodge Ram 1500, 2008 brings an interior that Automobile says "goes from simple utilitarian in the base ST to plush in the Laramie." Reviewers at The Auto Channel feel that the interior "has a nicely finished look" but "without being ostentatious." Edmunds adds that the interior features a "straightforward, user-friendly design," while Automobile notes that the large controls give the Dodge Ram 1500 a style that "is monolithic, reflecting the stark, vehicle exterior design."

Conclusion

The 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 carries the day with its sleek look and macho persona.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
