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


Review

This truck with a diesel will move mountains. With a travel trailer (7000 lbs.) in tow and a 600 lbs. quad in the bed, this baby rides like a dream. You can't feel anything behind you. Granted, the truck rides a little rough when empty, but when loaded, it smoothes right out. It's designed for the load and it shows. Loaded down, mountains rarely slow you down, the torque is awesome. I've driven Silverados, but go with the Dodge.


Favorite Features

This is a drive all day truck. The comfort and smooth loaded ride make any trip a joy. I love the UConnect hands free phone system. The stereo is top notch and plays my mp3 cds. Being a diesel, there is little maintenance. The flip up tow mirrors are fantastic.

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


Review

This is another great truck from Dodge. The seats are a little on the firm side, but adjusting them every few hours makes the trips bearable. Pulling a 25' trailer grossly weighted at 8000 pounds, 35000 miles a year, I don't even know it's there. A change of the exhaust and the power and mileage gets better without voiding the warranty. :)


Favorite Features

Satellite radio


Suggested Improvements

Add as an option the trailer tow command system and a higher GVW hitch like the F truck has

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


Review

Just sold my '03 Ford fF150 fx4 and bought this Dodge Laramie QC 4x4 Diesel and I am in love! This is an awesome truck for the money! I have never had a diesel before and was a bit nervous about the noise and ride quality but after having this truck for a while I just find any excuse to get out and drive it. The fuel mileage is at 17 mpg now but will get better as time goes on. Dodge is the way of the future! Grab it by the horns.

Ride quality, diesel, everything!

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


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.

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


Review

I have loaded it down with 3+ tons of tile and it handled as if nothing was in it. It has been on various trip which required 4X4, with a quick turn of the nob I was climbing a muddy hill or going through sand. Size does matter, the room in the back fits 3 full sized adults (6' plus) and they had plenty of leg room, without touching the front seats.


Favorite Features

The roomy interior is everything you would associate mega cab to. And the storage in this truck is amazing.


Suggested Improvements

The front cup holder does not really allow for anyone to sit in the middle.
