2009 Truck design ratings
trucks to new storage units, the truck market is really setting up to make some extensive changes within the next little while. Since the release of the Explorer Sport Trac, the whole truck market has really seen some shifting, towards smaller more fuel efficient models. And with the addition of rear springs to one of this years entries, we are starting to see the end of what a truck really was, at one point in history. It almost seems that the future of the truck market lies within car based platforms, or car based trucks.
Well it was no different this year, than it was back in 1994. Since back then we had the same winner for best new truck. So for setting the world on fire yet again, with new features and a new way to look at your truck, we name the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 the AutoLooks A+ winner. The Ram is nothing short of a truck in any way at all, but it seems to be the only truck that can be designed to look powerful, fun and fast. Along with adding in a few key features. The only problem with the look of this truck, is that with a go fast hood, someone forgot to make the bumper look like its fast too. It still fits with the front, but it does not seem all that right. Take a couple of minutes to look at the front of the truck and you will notice that the bumper seems to stand out.
Now for whatever reason, we still don’t know why this truck keeps selling like beer at a baseball game. Is it because of good advertising, or is it because Denis Leary told you it’s the best truck. Well for whatever reason it is, we don’t know why people keep purchasing the dull and boring 2009 Ford F150, so we named it our Rusty truck. It has no good design attitude, it looks completely off, and nothing looks right. Take the headlamps, there misshapen and sit too low on the front end. And that grille, well Ford seems to think that a grille that rolls onto the hood, makes the truck look more rugged and powerful. News-flash Ford, it doesn’t. And although you have good features, that doesn’t work, when you have to look at something as ugly as this thing. Oh and last but not least, a truck is not suppose to be a box on wheels. We have already lived those days, they were called the 80’s.
