Why it's trip-worthy:
Folks who need to bring bikes or boats along will find the Dodge Ram capable of doing so, but with the features of a luxury sedan. The full-size pickup was redesigned for the 2009 model year, with Edmunds.com noting its roomy and well-appointed interior. "You drive it and it almost feels like a car, yet it still is able to tow and haul a lot of stuff," says Brian Moody with Edmunds.com.
