2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie 4×4 Crew Cab – Road Test

The last time I drove the full-size Dodge Ram, I had a hard time climbing into the cab because it was so far off the ground. Since the Dodge Ram 1500 was completely re-designed for the 2009 model year I thought I’d give the newer model a shot. Would getting in and out be any easier this time around? I’ve always liked the look of Dodge pickup trucks. I think the only time I wasn’t terribly crazy about them was sometime in the early 1980’s. The all-new 2009/2010 model is without a doubt the best looking Dodge truck yet… and I might even have to say the best-looking pickup truck – period. Having recently driven the 2010 Ford F150 and F150 Raptor, they were outstanding and still fresh in my mind, so inevitably some comparisons between them will come up.

2010 Ford F-150 4×4 SuperCrew Lariat – Road Test

It’s been a year or two since I’ve taken a full-size pickup truck for a road test. With the Ford F-150 being all-new in 2009 and having major improvements over 2008, I thought it would be a good time to test one. Some of the improvements over the 2008 model are things like improved torsion rigidity in the ’09 trucks by 10% and Ford have used laser-edge welds that are 5 times stronger than other trucks’ traditional spot welds.
