Review of the 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

  • Improved build quality, solid handling and optional Hemi V8 power make the Ram a tough truck to beat.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Generous passenger room, sharp handling, compliant ride, spacious interior, available side-curtain airbags.

  • Cons

    Not enough power from top V8, poor fuel mileage, no stepside body style.

  • What's New for 2003

    Two new packages debut, "Off-Road" and "Work Special," and the old Laramie trim level returns to replace the SLT Plus. For better performance, a five-speed automatic transmission is now optional on the 3.7-liter V6 and 4.7-liter V8 engines.

Review of 2003 hemi

Vehicle: 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

This truck is amazing. Dodge ramped it up this year with an excellent interior design and the almost overpowering hemi engine. Buy it!

The Dodge Boys have out done themselves this Time ! Dash is straight forward no bells & whistles you do not need. Straight Forward TRUCK ,4.7 provides plenty of power teamed with the 5 speed automatic you wont be sorry you bought this one.




Dodge ram '03...best yet

Vehicle: 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab ST 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

This '03 Ram handles and drives several fold better than the '98 Ram I traded in. Best vehicle I've owned in years, excepting the '02 Vette, of course.
