Review of the 1998 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Distinctive sheetmetal, user-friendly cab, standard V-8

  • Cons

    Underpowered base V-6, ABS is not standard

  • What's New for 1998

    The Ram Quad Cab, as in four doors, becomes the first pickup on the market with two rear access doors. And for convenience, the front seatbelts are now integrated into the front seats, making for obstruction-free rear access. All Ram Pickups get a totally redesigned interior, standard passenger-side airbag with cutoff switch, and all airbags are "depowered" for safety.

Transmission is the weakest link. Mine had to be replaced at 60k. Other than that, replaced the battery and the serpentine belt once, tires twice.
