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 LB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)

I've owned two Super Duties (a 99 and 04) both diesels. This Ram with the Cummins gets 20mpg, with more HP and TQ than than Ford's did. 58K miles, and its been to the dealer once for a minor items. Solid, reliable, powerful!
