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.

Great truck - still runs

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 ST 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

I bought this truck used in 2003 with 57000 miles. I've been driving it for six years now and have accumulated 130000 miles. I had to replace the transmission at 95000 miles but everything else is still running as new. Sure, after being 9 years old, it is starting to show rust around the rear fenders and cab corners but other than that I'm still happy as can be with it. I don't plan on buying another vehicle for years to come. Tons of power and performance, great sound, and awesome looks.




Best truck on the road.

I have to say that for my age (20), I have owned a lot of vehicles. And this one is by far the best one yet. I have to say that I love this truck. I have a 2000 Ram 1500 sport, with the 5.9 and while it is not the best on gas...averaging like 15mpg...it has been a great truck. With the exception of the axle joints, and an ABS sensor, I havent had to do a thing to this truck. It pulls well and the 4 wheel drive is excellent, even if im just playing in the mud with it. I would highly recommend one of these trucks to anyone, but know that no matter what you buy, there is a chance of getting a bad one, but when you get a good one like I did, its all worth it.




Great truck!

Keeping it until it dies

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

I love this truck, even more than the 79 ram i had in high school. i've had this truck in all types of weather with all kinds of loads and trailering in all kinds of terrain and it has proven itself worthy ( even though i had to replace drive shaft ujoints at 49000mi). the fuel economy could be better but im not upset getting 13 in the city and 16 to 17 on the hwy (depending on where i buy gas).I would recommend this truck to anyone.




One transmission after another

additional... Oh....the other thing I have the Mag 5.9L engine....what a gas HOG. The sticker says 12MPG city and 16 HWY...The truck gets 12MPG on it's best day on the highway going down hill. Going back to a Chevy or even a Ford..., Thanks Dodge, you've been great (NOT)
