2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT Rwd SB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

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!


Favorite Features

The fuel economy is great! I drove it from Baton Rouge to Houston @ 70 to 80 mph and averaged 21mpg.


Suggested Improvements

I think they should add some bed features like spray-on-liner and tie down rails.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

The Hemi is a nice engine, too bad it's stuck in this truck.


Suggested Improvements

Start from scratch, keep the Hemi and toss the rest.

Review

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!


Favorite Features

Fuel mileage with Cummins. Fantastic disc brakes on all corners. The solid ride comfort at freeway speeds.


Suggested Improvements

Sometimes the best improvements are no improvements. If it's not broke,don't fix it!

Review

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.


Favorite Features

The looks, and the handling


Suggested Improvements

Less plastic in the interior
