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.

Best i've ever driven

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST Rwd LB (4.7L 8cyl 5M)

I've owned 3 trucks previous, a Ford, a Chevy, and a GMC. None were as quiet, smooth, or powerful as this one. Huge interior, rear seating plenty for adults. Tows my camper or utility trailor loaded with 4-wheelers without any strain or significant change in gas mileage.
