Review of the 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500

  • With the recent debut of the Hemi V8, the Ram 1500 can handle the diverse duties of comfortable daily driver and capable workhorse with equal ease.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Generous passenger room, powerful "Hemi" V8, sharp handling, compliant ride, spacious interior, available side-curtain airbags.

  • Cons

    Poor fuel mileage, no stepside bed style, fewer body configurations than its competition.

  • What's New for 2004

    The Laramie edition gains more flash via a new grille, body molding and interior accents. A full-time four-wheel-drive system debuts, as does a hands-free Bluetooth-enabled cell phone and a navigation system.

Love that hemi

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 2dr Regular Cab Laramie Rwd SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Compared to other trucks I have driven (and I've driven most) this thing handles well and will really move. Style listing is incorrect and not available to choose from. My truck is a SLT short bed with the 5.7 liter Hemi. The Hemi has lots of torque-very smooth power! I have timed it a 6.6 seconds 0- 60. Nice interior design and comfortable. Mileage (after break-in) is up to 17.4 with a bed cover installed. Was 16.5 without. (in both cases the mileage represents a very light foot on the throttle-hard to do with the available power. You could easily get 13-14 if your not careful.




My gas guzzler

Great truck, poor gas, I have the 5.7 HEMI, It will pull anything, anywhere as long as there a place to get fuel on the way.
