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.

POWER! and fun to drive. The sound of the 345 horse power 375 ft-lb torque is awesome! The sound of the exhaust is enough to make you turn the radio down and listen! It is extremely comfortable and very fun to drive. I optioned for the 20" alloy wheels and would recommend them! I had a 2001 Dodge Dakota and traded it in for the Ram 1500 Hemi. My Ram out corners it and coupled with the power is a joy to drive. Over all the truck feels solid. I haven't had it long enough to experience long term wear, but I can say right know it is SOLID! Thanks Dodge for bring the HEMI back!
