Review of the 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

  • The versatile Ram can handle everything from off-road bashing to towing an Airstream with ease, and still look good doing it.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    User-friendly cab, distinctive sheetmetal.

  • Cons

    Underpowered base V6, quad cab lacks rear seat room when compared to GM full-size trucks.

  • What's New for 2000

    The Ram 1500 Pickup Club Cab models with the 8-foot bed have been discontinued; also eliminated for 2000 are the 2500 Club Cabs. All Ram Pickups receive a new front suspension and steering system to improve ride quality and steering precision, and 2500s and 3500s have a revised rear suspension for a better ride when loaded. An off-road package is now available for the short-wheelbase four-wheel-drive 1500.

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB

2000 4X4 reg./cab/sb: I've always owned full size trucks and this one was the best. Mine had the 5.2l V8 and the 5spd tranny. I can personally attest that it would do a 17.1sec quarter mile and break traction into 3rd gear (not bad for a 4X4). Extremely rugged truck, Ford and chevy couldn't match. I used this truck hard for 2 years (30k mi). I would drop the clutch at 3000 rpm locked up in 4hi with the truck sitting in a foot of sand...I guarantee a Ford or Chevy would've popped. The only probs with mine were a leaky brake proportioning valve and a bent steering stabilizer that I rebounded off a huge rock... Both were fixed free under warranty.
