2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Mega Cab Laramie 4dr Mega Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Great truck for work and family. $250 chip gave me 120 hp and 3 more mpg. Took several long trips comfort and excellent fuel mileage.(but not quite as good as my 2004 2500 I had before.) I still range in the 19-21 mpg hwy if I keep it under 70. Cruising range in the 600-700 mile range. Will tow anything you hook it to have towed a 24k bachhoe with mine. And haul a 12k skidsteer regularly


Favorite Features

Cummins deisel


Suggested Improvements

More room in front seat with console model.

2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 Mega Cab Laramie 4dr Mega Cab 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I had a transmission solenoid go out around 10,000 miles causing slipping between 1st and 2nd gear. The warranty covered it but it took a special engineer to come down and isolate the problem. The truck is tough to maneuver. The megacab offers ample room inside but is not worth the sacrifice. This truck sticks out of my garage by more than a foot. Performance was lacking until an aftermarket exhaust and air intake were installed.


Favorite Features

Sliding rear window, seat reclining in back


Suggested Improvements

Change manual lumbars, add touch screen Navi, 1 touch windows up or down

Review

You don't have to "Dodge" them anymore. They are well built, powerful, long lasting and fun to drive. The truck has been above average on all things, fit and finish, gas mileage, handling, and most of all very fun to drive. It will spin the wheels at any moment if you get after it. No more worrying about getting into traffic, you floor board it and off it goes. In fact you have to watch the speedo. You are doing 90 before you notice, No motor noise, no wind noise, and you can actually use the drive up now without killing the engine. Great job Dodge!


Favorite Features

Inside fit and finish. Great from Dodge considering what we had to live with in the past.


Suggested Improvements

Make front seat totally electric, not just driver's side. And put in an adjustable lumbar support in the seats.

Review

Fuel economy averages 10-11 MPG around town and only about 13-14 at 75 MPH. The ride is quite rough, much rougher than my '97 half ton extra cab. The Hemi engine is very powerful and runs smoothly. The truck looks stunning after it is freshly washed and earns many compliments. The room in the backseat is outstanding.


Favorite Features

Outside appearance and rear seat and cab design


Suggested Improvements

A smoother riding suspension would be great in the 3/4 ton truck and the fuel economy is worse than expected

Review

Fuel mileage is poor unless you are on the highway, cruise on, going 65 or less. A/C stinks if the temps are above 90. Even worse when humidity is high or above 100.


Suggested Improvements

A/C redesign, better mileage. Better customer sevice relations when disscusing trucks problems.
