Head em' up! Rawhide! 2009 Dodge Ram intro plans

Word on the street in Detroit are the plans for Dodge's introduction of the new 2009 Dodge Ram. Sources say that Dodge is working with the City of Detroit to stampede a herd of cattle down Jefferson Avenue, and herd them up with the new Ram.

Chrysler LLC is no stranger to having over the top introductions at the Detroit show each year. Their biggest to date was by driving the redesigned Jeep Wrangler through the plate glass windows of Cobo Hall, ala The Blues Brothers. They also pulled a similar stunt in 1992 with the Grand Cherokee. Though they drove up the steps of Cobo Hall and then trough the window from the outside.

With Chrysler under new managment, this years Detroit show will be all the more important to impress the worlds automotive press.

Along with the Dodge Caravan, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300, the Ram is a cornerstone in the automaker's lineup of vehicles.

Chrysler and the City of Detroit are both keeping tight liped about this one, with good reason too. This could go down as the most incredible new vehicle introduction in history... at least until 2009.
