2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Quad Cab SLT 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

the truck is solid been driving for a few hundred miles now and i really like it. there is lots of power for when you need to get up to speed. the ride comfort is what you would expect from a heavy duty truck. i average 22 mpg on the hwy and 20 in the city. its worth the money. yes the interior quality is not the best but its ok. good truck. i drove a 2003 ford f250 with the 6.0 the aceleration sucked and the turbo lag was horrible. i would rev it all the way up to 3500 rpm and it would barley move the the dodge is a better choice.

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Quad Cab SLT 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I bought this '06 Ram Diesel when it had 51000 miles and it runs great. I changed all the fluids with synthetic but am staying with Delo 400 15-40 for the engine and changing it every 5000 mile along with a fleetguard filter. I added an AFE stage 2 intake, BD tranny pan, and Smarty Jr. Recent trip from Denver to Seattle averaged 19.7 mpg unloaded at average speed of 70. Did not burn a drop of oil. The dealer changed the ball joints and u-joints when I bought the truck. I can see these are going to be a weak area but the Cummins diesel can't be beat. I was a Chevy person for 30 years and even though I loved the Silverado I will drive this Dodge till it won't go anymore.


Favorite Features

Looks, Cummins Diesel, fuel mileage better than gasser. Roomy front and rear seats. Turning radius. Ease of checking and servicing fluids.


Suggested Improvements

Build a beefier front end. Switch to an Allison Tranny. Seats could be more comfortable.

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Quad Cab SLT 4dr Quad Cab LB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I love it! And I really love the gas mileage,I have got 28 MPG on a curvy uphill state highway! This thing almost has too much power for its own good!!! We tow a 7,500 lb bumper pull Travel Trailer up the rocky mountains and still get 15 MPG! I also tow a 16ft trailer that i tow a 3,500 Lb Antique Tractor and It pulls it like a piece of thread.


Favorite Features

The Power, The Looks, The Sound, The Durability,


Suggested Improvements

They Should Have Kept Making It, Don't Get One Without 4x4, Exactly Follow The Maintenance Schedule and You Will Have A Long Lasting Truck You Can Drive The Wheels Off Of, Back Seats Could Use Some Help.

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Quad Cab SLT 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Bought the 4X4, diesel, in June 2009. Traded in 2006 Tundra regular cab for it. Closed box beam frame, brakes that'd stop a locomotive, and an industrial grade diesel engine - all "the" requirements for a work truck. Interior is not glamorous, but the SLT has the essentials. SB has a tight turning radius; on a dime. Stock configuration sits up high off the ground. Low gear 4X4 transfer case; climbs up anything. Sound system has good tone; MP3 player plug in. Cab is quiet. Quab cab is roomy enough for adults for <300 mile trips. All around - looks manly; not an overchromed glitz truck. Best truck for the money.


Favorite Features

Cummins with 4 in pipe; rich sound. Mileage is unbelievable; 17 city, knocking on 23 hwy. Strongest 5.9 liter cummins configuration; no emissions crap for this year model. Rugged styling is reminiscent of the old 1940 series power wagons


Suggested Improvements

GPS as standard equipment.

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Quad Cab Laramie 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This is my 1st diesel picked it up used with 24k on it now up to 31k and I love it. The 5.9 has all the power you need and no EPA crap like the 08. Towing is not a problem. Get the Laramie pkg. Heated seats great in the winter. QC has lots of room for the kids. I have started this thing at -20 with no plug in around, truck starts right up. If your looking for a used diesel, go with this one for sure, you will love it


Favorite Features

Heated leather seats, Brakes work great. Fun truck to drive. MPG not bad, around 15-17 city and up to 23 Hwy


Suggested Improvements

Get the ashtray back in the dash. Heated rear window would help.
