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.

I was a Ford man but couldn't pass this truck up. Built solid with a good design. Gas milage isn't great but it's average for a big truck. I love it and I'm glad I bought it!
