The Dodge Ram's showstopper feature is going to be this one, the RamBox. It's a lockable, watertight, drainable, illuminated storage compartment built into the bed wall.

The new Ram will also have heated rear seats and, for the first time on any Dodge vehicle, a heated steering wheel.

Sirius satellite TV - yes, TV - will also be available. It's a feature that was introduced last year on Chrysler's Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans.
