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