2009 model year changes

The Dodge Ram 1500 is redesigned for 2009. The new look is aggressive and efficient, with a distinct lip above the big, forward-leaning crosshair grille. Also new is more available power, plus a wealth of standard and optional comfort and convenience features including plenty of cool gadgetry. Three engines power the Ram 1500: a carryover 215-hp 3.7L V6, a more powerful 310-hp 4.7L V8 with E85 capability and a 390-hp 5.7L Hemi V8, which ups the power ante from the 345-hp Hemi unit of 2008. Despite the added power, Chrysler claims a 10% increase in fuel efficiency. The Ram 1500 rides on a fully boxed frame, and a revised rear suspension now features coils springs and multi-links with a solid axle--a first for American trucks. A conventional Crew Cab replaces the mega cab of years past and the models features the innovative RamBox storage system, with locking bins along the bed, as well as a bed divider that also serves as a bed extender. The new Ram 1500 comes in several styles and configurations to cover all users' needs, and it's priced between $21,270 and $43,240.
