If you're looking for some sign of hope for Chrysler LLC, open the door to a 2009 Dodge Ram. If it's not too late, a car company that can make something like this might just have a shot.

Unlike most recent Dodge products, the Ram has an interior that looks as if someone actually spent time designing it rather than just slapping together some hideous but useful plastic parts. It's actually quite attractive in there.

The Ram has lots of clever storage ideas, too, including underfloor bins in the cab and the optional RamBox bins - airtight and with drains to let out water - built into the bed walls.

With car-like coil springs instead of the typical leaf springs over the back wheels, the Ram also feels more controlled underway than most trucks. Added to all that, it's arguably the best-looking big pickup on the market.
