“The all-new Dodge Ram is a game-changer in the highly competitive truck market,” said Mike Accavitti, Director – Dodge Marketing, Chrysler LLC. “More than 11,000 consumers accepted the challenge to test the all-new Ram against its competition, and Adam is driving away with the ultimate prize – a new truck valued at $38,500.”
The model year 2009 Dodge Ram includes no less than 35 new or upgraded features when compared to the previous version of the car, Chrysler said in a press statement. In addition, Dodge Ram is “the first-ever crew-cab-size model” and provides the “best-in-class aerodynamics”, providing both improved fuel economy and performance.
Dodge Ram is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces a maximum power of 390 hp and a torque of 407 lb-ft, with an average fuel consumption of 20 mpg on the 4x2 model.
Beside all of these, the new model boasts the first-in-segment, factory-installed four-inch dual exhaust styled dramatically into the rear bumper, providing thirty-five safety and security technologies, including ABS, ESP and front and rear side-curtain airbags.
