2002 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

Review

Steering – big improvement, and the manual transmission shifts nicely and has a decent set of ratios. The clutch is nice, too. The 4.7L engine is a good mate for this tranny, but it has a lower than expected toque feel at the lower rpms. No biggie, I just need to relearn the shifting and acceleration methods. Towers using this engine should try the higher ratio diff. The ride height is excellent. The shorter bed is an excellent comprimise with the rear cab space. The storage spaces are great - although the brochure is somewhat misleading - talk to your dealer. Driven 500 miles so far. Mileage: City ~15, hwy ~18 - better than EPA! It does not "feel" as large as it is.

Favorite Features

AVAILABLE Manual tranny - ON THE LOT! Seats are great. Center armrest. Overhead console with mileage info. Rear seat room is IDEAL. Bed length still decent. Nice suspension for a truck! Tires. Mileage better than expected.

Suggested Improvements

More bottom end torque on 4.7L engine. Shorter turning diameter wall-to-wall. Parking is the only real pain.
