The truck is good to do what I need. Towing a 4100 lb travel trailer,atv and many loads of sand, gravel and dirt for many landscaping projects. I get 15city/19hwy real world driving with the 4.7l v8 235hp/300lbs torque. now a friend with and identical 1500 ram with 5.7l Hemi gets a real world 12 city 15 highway mpg. Now that said for about five more dollars per fill up his Hemi Ram made circles around the 4.7l in towing and just highway cruising simply put it's like comparing a Viper versus a Neon just no comparison so if you got an extra 20 dollars a month in fuel (my driving habits) just get the Hemi you will not regret it.
Heavy duty tow service pack with tranny/oilcoolers. Fold out tow mirrors w/defrost. Bigger alt battery it does the trick.
With the new Hemi fuel saving feature why bother selling the 4.7l option make Hemi standard in 1500 Rams these trucks work really good
