This is my first Dodge and I must say, I am impressed. The Cummins engine is something to experience. Unbelievable power, smooth ride, and I get 20 mpg hwy (and I'm only at 1500 miles!). This truck easily doubles as my daily drive as the handling is superb and I can park anywhere a half-ton can.
The engine is amazing. So quiet, I forget it's a diesel. I like that I was able to get a 1-ton that is no bigger than a half-ton as I have to drive around the city. It even fits in my garage!
4 speed auto transmission is a little jerky. I wish I had held out for an '07 which has a new tranny.
