Review of the 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

  • Dodge's Ram pickups 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 sheet metal, powerful V10 and diesel options.

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2001

    Electronic cruise control is now offered for the Cummings turbodiesel models with a manual transmission, improved braking systems with standard ABS come on all 2500 and 3500 Rams, two new exterior colors debut, and child seat anchors are mounted on the rear of the cab. A high-output Cummings turbodiesel model, with a six-speed transmission, 245 horsepower and 505 ft-lbs. of torque, is offered in addition to a slightly improved 235-horsepower/460 ft-lbs. version, available with a manual or automatic tranny.

Solid truck

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 2WD LB (3.9L 6cyl 5M)

I bought this truck with only 35K on it for work usage and put over 35K on it in about 16 months with no problem at all. Have a company truck now, so the Dodge doesn't get much usage now, but it's been on a few out of town trips and has been a very good truck.
