What awesome Hemi power. Blows away most other cars and trucks. Bought used at 5000 miles and added cruise and power locks. Just drove 3000 miles in rain, snow and sleet including mountain driving and freeways. Averaged 16.5 mpg at 75 to 80 mph and a big load in the bed. Love this truck! No repairs, only oil changes since purchase.
Hemi performance excellent, gas consumption not a concern at time of purchase. At $5 a gallon it is time to be frugal. At $8 use only for fun and necessity. If the eco wackos have tier way I still won't separate from this vehicle. I love to drive it. I feel comfortable, safe, and in charge. It handles as well as any car I have ever owned. I am satisfied and have a goal of at least 200,000 mi.
hand holds, tilt steering, audio system, air. storage under rear seat, storage in door panels, split front seat.
No power in the 4.7, yet same fuel economy as the 5.7 Hemi? Other than the small "jeep" engine wearing prematurely, the transmission is my only concern- shifts are insecure and I know my tranny will be the first thing to go. Though, very comfortable truck, love the way it handles and drives! I'm considering a Cummins diesel version...
Styling, braking/handling, very comfortable for a truck.
Transmission needs upgrading, 4.7L is too small for a large truck.
20 years Mercedes owner driver! Not
going back to them. Dodge has won my
heart, money and soul!
Not a "keep up with the jones" typ car.
Low profile, great reliability, will
drive from Los Angeles to Panama Canal!
Did 46,000 miles in 7 months and only 1
small part replaced!
KN air filter, 10-40 syn oil, 1step
hotter plugs, screen over the radiators
2 avoid bugs and rocks messing up your
engine= 16mpg city and 20mpg freeway.
Note that 265x70x17 tires make your
odometer 5.67% low. So multiply your
miles by 1.0567 to get real miles per
gallon. Same for your speed! via gps
