2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab Laramie 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


I bought the Laramie quad cab 4x4 after pricing and testing the competition. The bottom line is that for the same price as a mid-range F150 you can buy a top of the line Ram 1500. This is no comprimise either - the HEMI and 5- speed automatic provide outstanding performance with imperceptible shifting. The handling and maneuverablity are quite good - the truck "feels" smaller than it is. This truck is well thought out without going overboard on gadgets. My actual mileage is as advertised 18/13 and I live in hilly country. Wish I bought: heated seats for $130.

Best Features

HEMI Drive train, handling, interior comfort (Laramie Quad Cab), sound system, interior storage and very useful rear load floor.

Worst Features

Gas mileage, but it is hard to imagine any more efficient engine - 100HP more than the 4.7 and the same milage. The problem is size and weight, not poor efficiency.
