I hate the current Dodge Ram. I don’t make any apologies about it. I think it’s a horrendous vehicle, a bad truck, an unapologetic gas guzzler, and an eyesore. Also the fact that you have to get a $10,000+ discount on a Ram to make it a “decent” deal just adds to my detest for the vehicle.
I almost didn’t post this shot of the 2009 Ram, but I try not to let my disgust for any particular vehicle cloud my judgement too much. After all, many of you may be interested in the new Ram, and that’s quite alright. Different strokes, as they say.
There should be some decent upgrades in the engine department, with the Mopar 4.0 liter V6 replacing the current 3.7. I don’t know much about the 4.0 , but the 3.7 is wheezy, underpowered, and thirsty. So I say bring it. The 4.7 and 5.7 V8’s will also likely se upgrades. The Hemi upgrade is important, as the Toyota V8 pummels its specs currently, and that’s quite embarrassing.
Look for the 2009 Dodge Ram in fall 2008.
