Chrysler has not gone as fast as its Detroit neighbors in seriously upgrading interior quality. Now, under a new management regime, the company has promised that will change.

The new Dodge Ram looks like the first sign that something is really happening. The Ram truck's interior, which is even available with wood trim, is a major step up from recent Dodge cars and trucks.

Materials are softer to the touch, and switches and controls have been redesigned to be easier and more pleasant to use. There are more interior storage compartments.
