We've driven a few versions the 2010 Ram Heavy Duty – we've done some towing, we've taken the Power
Wagon off road – but the most revealing moments...
... came when we drove, back to back, a 2010 Ram 2500 Crew Cab with the short bed and diesel engine and the equivalent Chevy Silverado. The Ram was notably quieter, smoother, more attractive and more refined than the Chevy. Although the Ram HD has to forego the rear coil springs that help make the Ram 1500 the most fun and most comfortable truck in its segment, the re-tuned suspension and fluid-filled hydro mounts at the rear of the cab do an impressive job of isolating the cabin from the road. How will the new Ram HD fare against the new Ford and Chevy heavy duties looming on the horizon? We'll have to wait and see. But Dodge has set the bar pretty high.
