Review of the 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500

  • Although the mighty V10 has been dropped, the heavy-duty Ram still offers serious diesel power, stout suspensions and a well-built, functional interior that makes it an impressive package for hard-core truck users.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful engine choices, huge payload and towing capacities, comfortable interior, compliant ride, numerous safety features.

  • Cons

    Stunted standard bed, no high torque gas engine available, fewer body configurations than the competition.

  • What's New for 2004

    An automatic transmission debuts for the high-output Cummins turbodiesel that was formerly available only with a manual gearbox. The Laramie model gains more flash via a new grille, body molding and interior accents. A hands-free cell phone with Bluetooth technology is now available, as is a new Off-Road package and a navigation system. Lastly, the Magnum V10 engine is dropped from the power plant roster.

Vehicle: 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab Laramie Rwd SB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)

I bought this truck, a 3/4 ton rated to tow 13000 pounds and haul 3000 pounds. The transmission is crap. If you buy one of these, borrow it for a day and drive it towing and loaded with your camper. I didn't and have been sorry for a long time. I'm looking at GM. The bed is a real 6.5 ft and the transmission shifts good. DC is selling a psuedo hauler.
