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 2dr Regular Cab ST Rwd LB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)

I picked this truck up used as a replacement for a totalled out 2001 Ram 2500. So far I love the truck. Even with the 3.73 gears, it pulls my trailer very well. The Hemi-5speed is a good combination.




Super truck : cummins rocks

It's a super truck. I have owned Ford and Chevy gassers before. Now I have a real truck! Will spin the wheels at 30 mph and smoke them from a dead stop. Pulls like a frieght train, and is super quiet. 14 mpg pulling 10,000lbs at 75mph is OK by me.




Good machine

This is my first dodge and I am very happy. 2500HD SLT Off Road with Hemi power. Use it for farm work and commuting to work. Most I have pulled is a 36,000-pound wagon and is had plenty of power for the job. My wife made many runs this fall with 24,000-pound wagon and had no problems,even coming out of a soft field. (it was quite a sight!) This is a true truck..

Vehicle: 2004 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 2dr Regular Cab ST Rwd LB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)

I went from a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 Std cab 5.9 Ltr (235Hp) engine... to a 2002 Tundra access cad with a 6cyl (190HP) engine. It was nice having the extra 2 doors, but I really missed when I push on the gas for the truck to just go and when we go riding (4 wheelers) my truck wouldn't want to go very well down the highway against the wind. I have just bought a 2004 Std cab Ram 1500 with a 5.7Ltr HEMI... Man it is nice to know I have at least 345HP that let's me do what ever I want, when I want. The pedal has an endless supply of power at any speed-RPM. RPM.

we were looking to buy a 4X4 truck and test drove the new ford f150, toyota tundra and the dodge ram. the toyota was nice but small, the ford was over priced and had no umph, and the ram....well....it took us by the horns! on our test drive i floored it and man it was nice to be planted in the seat...the interior was well thought out and not only finctional but pleasing to the eye. the overall look, ride and price was too nice to pass. i got my 2500 SLT with several options and the price was 200 over what the basic f150 was. iam very pleased with my new addition and its nice to see some pick up in a pick up! nice sound of the hemi!
