Review of the 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500

  • The latest maxi-brute to hit the streets and local construction yards. It's tough and mean, but also has a sensitive side. We're impressed.

  • Safety

I'll never sell it

Vehicle: 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD LB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)

I checked out Ford and Chevy, then drove this truck. Bought it on the spot, didn't even haggle over the price. I love this truck and will never sell it. The power, the styling, the reliability, the value! I get better mileage with this diesel than I got with my Chevy Blazer. I tow a 25' 8000lb travel trailer and don't even know it's there. I can set the cruise at 70mph and climbs hills while towing without slowing. Dodge got it right!




Traded toyota... don't regret it...

Vehicle: 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD LB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)

I traded my Tundra in on this truck.. and I got the big diesel $5K upgrade package with 4speed automatic. Loved my Toyota, but I bought a 10K lb. enclosed trailer and it felt like the trailer was driving the truck. I have no problem towing with this truck and recently did so in a level 3 snow emergency with no problem! My Tundra got 14-18 MPG... this gets 15-22mpg and it is a heck of a lot larger. 6'4" tall person fits comfortably in the back seat. The suspension is for towing... so it can be rough. Tundra could go 40mph over speedbumps and RR tracks.. Do that here and you get airborne, but that is expected. PS - use diesel conditioner in cold temperatures or it won't run. Dealer didn't mention that

The truck has a ton of power and has got to be the best looking truck out there.The only thing the truck needs is a five speed automatic tranny.
