New Dodge Ram goes in for aerodynamics

Even under heavy camouflage, it's clear that Dodge is moving away from the Ram's trademark big rig looks in favor of better aerodynamics. The prominent crosshair grille remains -- with stronger horizontal and vertical bars and slant-forward styling shared with the Dodge Charger.
When it goes on sale late next summer, expect to see new or revised engine choices including improved V-8s. The Ram's current 235-hp 4.7-liter V-8 should get the same makeover as the 2008 Dodge Dakota received, boosting power to 290 horses.
After 2009, Dodge will include a diesel in its light duty pickups. Currently the only oil burner is Dodge's 6.7-liter Cummins V-8 found in heavy duty pickups.
