I started off test driving a ford f-150 Eco boost, well when I put that thing to the floor it didn't spin and tj felt like a Prius on wheels
Then I went to the ram, I put it half way down and layed a black strip down the road. The hemi definitely has a lot of power!
I also got the crew can because I have kids. The crew cab is super roomy with storage everywhere. I also got the dual exaust which is nice although I wish it was slightly louder I won't complain.
Over all it's a great truck but there's one major thing I hate about dodges, which is rust, I noticed a quater inch rust spot that will be fixed immediately.
Power, noise reliablility
Add leaf springs instead of just coils and make a new paint job so no rust.
Bought the truck a few days ago after shopping Ford, Toyota and Ram.
My first two choices were the Toyota and Ram because of their more aggressive style.
The dealership offered such a good deal on the Ram it was difficult to pass up, so I didn't.
I ended up getting more interior bling with Ram than I was going to get with Ford or Toyota and the ride is great.
The truck is clean, drives well and very comfortable.
My Outdoorsman came equipped with remote start, which will come in handy when I move to IL.
Nice feature with it, is when you remote the truck, it locks the doors just in case you forgot to do so when you parked it.
Plenty of room in the front and back seats even for me at 6'1
Favorite features: UConnect (even though it will not read text from my iPhone), easy to navigate touch screen controls, many USB power ports and an A/C port.
Rear storage under seat, and in the read floor boards.
None that I can think of at this time.
This truck is filling the need I bought it for.
I own a 2004 Ford F-150, a 2008 Ram 1500 Big Horn and now a 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie.
All three of the vehicles are 4-wheel drive. The Ford's reliability has been poor to say the least and has cost me a fortune to maintain, including a new engine. Neither of my Ram trucks have ever required any work other than routine maintenance. After 90,000 miles the 2008 is as solid and beautiful as the day I bought it. My 2012 is amazing in all aspects: interior, ride qualtity, power, fuel economy and fit and finish. The new Chrysler CEO is considered the best in the industry, and it certainly shows with this vehicle.
Fuel Economy (19-20 consitently), Interior comfort and appearance, power and sound system.
The front end is too low from the factory.
Nothing that a $300 installed 2" leveling kit can't fix.
This is the first true truck(non-SUV) I"ve owned. Got it for towing, but needed something appropriate for office.
Man does this thing fit the bill.
Sharp and functional.
Fantastic, smooth ride, and it responds almost effortlessly when you hit the accelerator.
As comfortable as most luxury cars.
After test driving Ford and GMC equivlents, for me this was an easy choice.
This is simply a better
looking, more comfortable ride.
Yes I gave up a few 100 lbs towing capacity to other choices, but premium ride is worth the trade-off.
After owning fords for 22 years I bought this Ram 1500. I love the power and the interior features. Worried about floppy rear windows that rattle when down. It also shudders between 35-45 mph when not accelerating hard. With slight gas pedal the truck feels like its in the wrong gear. It feels like my f-150 that dropped a coil.
Dislike the short bed that comes with the supercrew cab.
Get rid of rear window rattles and retune the drive system and eliminate shuddering that is very noticeable around town.
