Dodge trucks have been atop the US domestic truck market for
decades now, and the strongest regional market in the world for the Dodge Ram
is the state of Texas.  In light of the
Ram’s popularity in the Lone
Star State
,
Dodge released the 2009 Dodge Ram Lone Star Edition at the 2008 Texas State
Fair.

 

This new trimline, which is available at dealerships in Texas only, begins with
a Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab with either two- or four-wheel drive, powered by the
mighty Hemi.  The 2009 5.7L Hemi powered
vehicles get a jump in power, to 390 horsepower and 407 lb-ft of torque.  The Hemi announces itself through a the
factory-installed 4″ dual exhaust.  Like
all other 2009 Rams, the Lone Star Edition is fitted with Dodge’s first in
class five-link rear suspension setup, mated to a sold rear axle, helping to
provide a smoother ride than most pickups without compromising payload or
towing capacity.

Next, the Lone Star Edition Dodge Ram is equipped with the
new RamBox storage unit, which is integrated into the bed side, and offers the
owner a waterproof, lockable, illuminated compartment, and along with that
comes a 2 foot bed extension and cargo rail system with adjustable cleats.  The outside of the Lone Star Ram features a
tremendous amount of storage space, and the inside has more of the same, with
in-floor storage compartments and 42 storage areas located throughout the
interior.  A lighting group package is
added, giving extra lights everywhere on the truck, both inside and out –  from under hood to the vanity mirrors.  Finished the interior are various leather
accents and on the exterior the tailgate mounted Lone Star Edition badge
completes the package.

 

The cost of the 2009 Lone Star Edition package is $1,500,
but with the required Hemi option, the total price is $2,810, but considering
that the same options added individually to a Ram 1500 would cost you around
$3,560, Texans have the opportunity to save themselves some money when
purchasing one of the most advanced trucks in the market.
