Review of the 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500

  • The heavy-duty Ram offers serious diesel power, stout suspensions and a well-built, functional interior -- all of which make it an impressive package for hard-core truck users.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful engine lineup, huge payload and towing capacities, comfortable interior, compliant ride, available side curtain airbags.

  • Cons

    Stunted standard bed, cramped rear seat, fewer body configurations that the competition.

  • What's New for 2005

    The big news (literally) for 2005 is the new Power Wagon, which features class-exclusive electric locking front and rear differentials, and an electronic disconnecting front sway bar. Other Power Wagon extras include 33-inch BF Goodrich off-road tires, a 12,000-pound winch, a two-inch taller stance and a unique suspension. Other changes for the Ram 2500 this year include an even more powerful version of the Cummins turbodiesel engine, now rated at a whopping 610 lb-ft of torque, and the availability of a power sunroof and Sirius Satellite Radio on Quad Cabs.

Wow, what a truck!

This Ram 2500 with the Cummins Turbo Diesel is so much fun to drive. It is a big rig with the race car feel. I love it and my wife loves it. Nice job Chrysler/Cummins!

Wow, what can I say. What a horrible experience. The Dodge Hemi powered attempt at a true crew cab falls short of my expectations. I had it 8 days and the dealer only wants to give me $6000 LESS than I paid for it! What a great value huh? The interior is the smallest of any of the competitors. It has an extremely noisy interior with multiple fit and finish problems. Overall I'd have to say to Dodge, you have some serious issues with your QC. Ford and Chevy dealers take note. You could sell twice as many trucks if you'd have a Dodge on your lot and let consumers do a side by side comparison. Make sure you do your research and so you won't make the same decision I did.

Wasn't too long ago that the name Chrysler/Dodge meant buyer beware particularily with quality control issues. My how times have changed. Mercedes has certainly left its mark on these new Damilar Chrysler vehicles. The Dodge Ram 2500 Laramie with the Cummins Turbo has the build quality that Americans are not used to seeing. Body panels meet, corners are squared, lines are straight. No rattles anywhere, anytime! I traded a 2003 Ram 2500 Hemi on this Cummins powered truck, and I am more impressed with it now than the day I drove it home. Before these 2 Damilier Chrysler products, I had a 2002 Lincoln Continental, which I really enjoyed. The Dodge trucks quality is on par with the Lincoln!

Love the 5 speed manual. Also have limited slip differential and 4:11 rear end. Acceleration is awsome and the havy duty brakes work well. Ride is smooth and handling is like no other truck I have ever owned.
