I'm a little disappointed by the lack of cruise control

Editors at TheCarConnection.com note that the 2009 Dodge Viper doesn't place a premium on features. Apparently, the view of the designers is that features add needless weight—so you won't find many of them here.

The 2009 Dodge Viper comes with few standard features. Edmunds lists "power-adjustable pedals, full power accessories, a tilt steering wheel, keyless entry and a seven-speaker, 300-watt audio system with a six-disc CD changer." The 2009 Dodge Viper ACR offers similar standard features. This certainly isn't much—but Cars.com reviewers feel that the Dodge Viper 2009 "seems to say, 'if you disapprove, buy something else.'" Edmunds finds that the 2009 Dodge Viper "makes no apologies for its lack of key luxury and safety features." The Cars.com reviewer also confesses, "I'll admit that after a week I longed for a cupholder, but I respect Dodge's exclusion of one."

The options list is minimal on the Dodge Viper 2009. Standard 2009 Dodge Vipers feature the option of "a navigation system combined with SIRIUS Satellite Radio," according to Kelley Blue Book. In the case of the 2009 Dodge Viper ACR, drivers can even choose to strip some features. Motor Trend reports that "40 pounds can be removed by opting for the 'Hard Core' package, which deletes the audio system" and "underhood silencer pad, trunk carpet, and tire inflator" on the Dodge Viper ACR, making for an even quicker and more formidable racer. One downer is noted by Cars.com: "I'm a little disappointed by the lack of cruise control...I find cruise control helps me keep from inadvertently creeping above the speed limit...cruise would add little cost and practically no weight."

ConsumerGuide says that the 2009 Dodge Viper offers various trims and color packages, including a $3,000 Dual Stripes option. For 2009, four new colors are available. A six-spoke wheel design is optional.

Conclusion

Don’t expect to see many modern conveniences inside the 2009 Dodge Viper.

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.
