ReviewHave only 200 miles so can't say anything about long term reliability. This is a dream to drive. You feel you are in a (very big) luxury car. Hwy mileage is 20mpg if I can believe the display; city it really drops -- to about 14/15. On the hwy you can listen to classical music at low volume as the cab is so quiet. The switch between 4 and 8 cyls is unnoticeable. Initial delivery quality is excellent as is the fit/finish of the truck. The hemi is very smooth and pulls strong but I am babying it until it has at least 300mi. Definitely would recommend the hemi instead of the smaller engine due to mpg and smoothness.
Best FeaturesHemi, quiet and refined ride, fuel efficiency, interior ergonomics (such as storage places and cup holders).
Worst FeaturesEveryone needs a bed liner; why not make it standard? Shorten the front hood and provide an extra 3-4 inches of room in the back seat of the quad cab.
