New exterior, which Dodge cleaned up and streamlined
Cars.com

The Dodge Ram 1500 pickup has long been Chrysler's best-selling vehicle. Rather than approach the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 with a sense of complacency, Chrysler has thoroughly redesigned both the interior and exterior to produce one of the most desirable pickups on the market.

The 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 is a "large pickup truck" that "is offered as a two-door regular cab and two four-door cabs with conventional doors—the Quad Cab and the Crew Cab," according to ConsumerGuide. In addition, ConsumerGuide comments that "the regular cab offers 6.4- and 8-foot cargo beds," while "the Quad Cab comes with a 6.4-foot bed" and "the Crew Cab uses a 5.7-foot bed." The Dodge Ram 1500 arrives in dealer showrooms with a new look that is well received in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com. Cars.com reports that "the new truck has a forward-swept crosshair grille that replaces its predecessor's upright design" and notes "new headlights flank this grille." Reviewers at The Detroit News love the "big, bold and distinctive" exterior that "stays true to [the] Dodge brand but incorporates function with art." Car and Driver reviewers also mention the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 "steps up the macho with bossy new sheetmetal."

Most reviewers appreciate the new exterior on the Dodge Ram 1500, and they unanimously rave about the interior redesign. ConsumerGuide mentions that the "huge gauges are boldly marked and easy to read at a glance" and appreciates that the "major controls are mostly convenient to access." Automobile Magazine declares that the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 has "the nicest interior of any Chrysler product," and other reviewers agree. Cars.com reports that the "new styling is an improvement over the previous truck's," and The Detroit News sums it up perfectly by proclaiming that "the interior offers everything a trucker needs, and everything a passenger wants."

Conclusion

Extreme Makeover: Truck Edition—the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 is here and looks better than ever.

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.
