The Final Word
Beyond engines, the level of refinement in the new Ram 1500 is impressive and clearly ahead of Chevy, GM, and Toyota. Regarding handling and ride smoothness, this is easily the best truck Dodge has ever produced and moves the benchmark incrementally higher, eclipsing even the trucks from General Motors, our past favorite.

The bottom line from Sport Truck is that if you can rationalize driving the '09 Dodge Ram 1500, do it. You won't be sorry.
