120,000 miles ram1500 w/hemi still

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

OK. I come from a GM family. So when I bought the Dodge RAM 1500 w/HEMI, I was a little apprehensive, well a lot apprehensive. I bought it new, well a demo. After driving it as my daily driver and work truck, I love it. The truck has had two maintenance problems. First the water pump went bad at approximately 90,000 miles. Then the wheel hub bearing went bad at 110,000 miles. Both easy fixes, I did it myself, cost me less than $200 each repair. Stay away from the dealerships. They wanted $700 and $1200 for each repair, respectively. Fuel Mileage is great for this size truck, HWY: 20mpg(at 65mph), City: 16mpg (minimize traffic stops). Overall, Great truck.




My fourth and best ram

Vehicle: 2007 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

This is my fourth Ram, and the best so far. This is my first Laramie and my first Hemi. I have had two with the small 8, and one with the 6 which I was very happy to part with. The Laramie is very comfortable and fun on the inside, it is hard to believe you are in a truck with all the features. It is a far cry from my first Ram with steel floor panels and manual windows with a cassette deck.

Vehicle: 2007 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

This is my third Ram. I really like the fit and finish. Truck is solid and sure. Towing is very good. 20 inch rims are awesome. Had a LWB and got a SWB this time and it makes a difference in the parking lots. Plenty of Power..MPG has something to be desired but I knew that when I got it. Make sure you use the cruise otherwise it has a tendancy to take off and you dont know it. MDS works OK. Rear tail lights are awesome.

Second big ram best yet

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

I just traded my 2005 Ram SLT1500 with 4.7 liter V8 for a 2007 Ram Big Horn Edition SLT1500 with 5.7 liter Hemi multi-displacement engine. I was looking for the higher tow rating and the lifetime warranty (however my 2005 had a nice extended Mopar 7/70 warranty on the powertrain). The 2007 is a wonderful truck. The Big Horn comes with 20 inch wheels that look super but may take a little away in the towing department. The Blue Tooth hook up is great as is the satellite radio. Both of those items are in demand and appreciated. The chassis is excellent for driving and pleasing to tow with. Nothing beats the look of a big Ram. I got a great deal too as the 2008's (with less rated HP) were here!




Great value

Vehicle: 2007 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Laramie 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)

Purchased my Quad Cab 1500 Laramie after looking at all of the major competitors. Each one offers nice features, but, the Dodge gave me the most for my money. Got the leather, premium wheels, Hemi, satelitte radio, power seats and much more for the same price as other Brands base models. It was too big of a difference to pass up!

Full 2007 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 Review

What's New for 2007

Changes for the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 include a new stain-resistant seat cloth, E85 fuel compatibility for the 4.7-liter V8 engine and retained accessory power. Additionally, stability control is a new option, as is keyless remote start.

Introduction

The Dodge Ram is the full-size truck with attitude. No, not bratty teenage girl attitude, but burly, tattooed nightclub bouncer attitude. A large grille and pumped-up front fenders evoke the styling of a Kenworth tractor, and a rumbling and muscular V8 under the hood does a good impersonation of a NASCAR racer. When drivers of subcompacts have this truck filling their car's rearview mirror, getting out of the way is the first thing on their minds.

On their own, these traits give the Ram some needed distinctiveness in the full-size truck segment. But in today's world of dual usage, where owners expect their pickups to be useful for both work and play, attitude goes only so far. Thankfully, there's a bit of refinement underneath the machismo. Dodge has given its truck better-than average handling reflexes, a roomy cabin and plenty of convenience-oriented equipment.

Though the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 remains largely untouched, Dodge did make a number of changes last year. These included a redesigned frame and suspension for better handling and ride quality; an updated interior design; and an additional crew cab body style called Mega Cab. True to its name, the Ram Mega Cab boasts one of the largest pickup truck cabins available. Built on the same chassis used for the heavy-duty Ram 2500 long-bed model, the Mega Cab boasts a cabin that's about 20 inches longer than the regular Quad Cab. There's more rear legroom than what's available in many sedans, and the rear seats even recline.

Though Dodge's full-size pickup truck has never been able to match the F-150 or Silverado in terms of sales, we've thought highly of the current-generation Ram since its debut in 2003. For a potential truck owner wanting style and capability, the 2007 Ram 1500 is a very good choice. But shoppers should also be aware that this model year is a dynamic one for full-size trucks. Toyota is introducing a new Tundra (a real full-size this time) and General Motors has an all-new Sierra and Silverado. A little research and some test drives are certainly warranted before settling on the Dodge Ram.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 is a full-size pickup truck. There are three body styles to choose from: regular cab, Quad Cab (a crew cab) and Mega Cab (a really big crew cab). The first two come with either a regular short cargo bed or a long bed. The Mega Cab rides on the same-length wheelbase as the Quad Cab long bed but pairs an even bigger cabin with the short bed.

Dodge offers ST, SLT and Laramie trims. The Ram ST has air-conditioning but is otherwise pretty bare-bones; go with the SLT for alloy wheels, cruise control, cloth seating, keyless entry and full power accessories. The luxurious Laramie comes with upgrades like dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seating, a power driver seat, a six-CD changer with MP3 capability and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. The selection of available options depends on model and trim, but highlights include a navigation system, a rear-seat DVD-based entertainment system, upgraded audio, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless start, a Sport package and a TRX4 off-road package.

Powertrains and Performance

All Ram models are available as either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. Regular cab 2WD STs come with a 215-horsepower 3.7-liter V6, but the workhorse engine is a 4.7-liter V8 capable of 235 hp and 300 pound-feet of torque. For additional power, there's a 5.7-liter V8; it makes 345 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. It's optional for most Rams and standard on Mega Cabs and all trucks with the Laramie trim. The two smaller engines are paired with either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The big V8 comes with an automatic only. Properly equipped, a 4WD Ram Quad Cab can pull 8,500 pounds.

Safety

Four-wheel disc brakes with rear ABS are standard on the ST and SLT; Mega Cabs and Laramies come with full four-wheel ABS; it's optional otherwise. Power-adjustable pedals are optional on most Rams and standard for the Laramie. For all Ram 1500s, full-length side curtain airbags and stability control (a new addition for 2007) are optional. In NHTSA crash tests, the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 earned five out of five stars for its protection of front occupants in head-on collisions. Frontal-offset collision testing performed by the IIHS similarly resulted in a top rating of "Good."

Interior Design and Special Features

The Ram's cabin features white-faced gauges, simple twist-knob climate controls and a huge center armrest/bin. Crew cabs can seat up to six people and these truck's rear seats fold up to reveal a flat load floor for carrying large items inside. Unfortunately, rear seating in Quad Cabs is noticeably more cramped than in competitors' crew-cab trucks. The Mega Cab more than compensates by providing almost a foot more of legroom.

Driving Impressions

Considering its size, the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 is nimble and easy to drive. Ride quality can still be a bit bouncy at times, but when loaded up with passengers and cargo, the Ram is downright comfortable. With the 5.7-liter V8, there's plenty of power for trailer towing and big payloads, but as expected, fuel mileage is a concern, as averaging more than 12 mpg is a challenge. Unless you plan on heavy towing, the more efficient 4.7-liter V8 will probably serve your needs just fine.
