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.

Great dependable ride

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)

The V8 is peppy,handling good. Turning radius could be better. Dependable, access to bed and cab good, under hood items easy to see/access. Dual exhaust sounds great, fuel mileage better w/duals. My wife loves this truck and says it is easy for her to operate, she's 5ft tall. Good truck.




Ram quad cab 2x4

Outstanding drivetrain, comfortable ride. It is used for work truck. Found after purchase, the boots on the "lifetime" front upper and lower bearings were all cracked and the tires were rubbing the steering because they were oversized.




How can u bash dodge?

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)

ok, i used to hate dodge not ever owning one just because all of my friends bashed them.(even though theyve never owned one) but this has been used almost 12 years constantly with 22,000 miles on it and have not had 1 problem. not 1 repair. yet my friends ford F-250 being such an awesome truck as he would say has CONSTANTLY been broken just recently having $1,200 in repair. Only 1 year, 1 month into the purchase. This is an awesome truck and for the people that complain about gas mileage...BUY A HONDA!! of course a V-8 truck will be low on gas mileage!




Ram tough, not really!!!

Vehicle: 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 2WD LB (5.2L 8cyl 5M)

I have owned many Dodges over the years, but this one has had the worst repair frequency record ever!! It has the 4 Wheel Anti-Lock Brakes, and they just DO NOT STOP THE TRUCK. It has been back to the dealer at least 9 times for repair. I finally had someone else bypass the ABS for the front wheels, and now it works fine. But, this is not a true fix. I guess the only way to get anyone to fix it right is to have a serious enough accident. The only other bad thing with this vechile is that it gets VERY poor fuel mileage... The sticker says 12, but I usually get only 8. Dealer says that this is normal also... My advise, buy a Japanees truck.




Awesome
