2009 Dodge Ram 1500

If these spy shots are taken at face value, the next Dodge Ram 1500 pickup could come with its own trench coat. Still, Dodge has to come on strong with its continual also-ran truck line (saleswise), and will do it with an upgraded Hemi, Phoenix V6 with more power and better fuel economy and a revised 4.7-liter V8 that will be ethanol capable and get better mileage than the paleo-eight it replaces.
