This was the truck I had been waiting for. Hated the nose design of the 1996-2005 [my prev. was a 1995 Dakota SLT]. This design is bold and clean. Interior is almost quiet, space is good, comfort is very good.. Fit & finish are great except for the body panels. Fenders to molded bumpers gap lets dirt, salt, mud flow thru. Got a cap on back and bed is fine & secure for most loads.
The exterior appearance is grand. Ride/comfort are nice. Handles well, w/wo a load. Quality seems good so far [9000 miles].
MPG is terrible for the 4.7L V-8, 14 mpg city, 17 mpg highway. Horn is useless. can never find the sweet spot to get any sound out of it.
