2012 Ram 1500 Quad Cab Sport 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Well I have a 2012 ram 1500 with 48000km on it was very pleased with it up until 2 days ago. When I hit a bump doing 40km breaking the lower control arm at the ball joint. I had it towed to the dealership where it was purchase after they took pictures of the broken arm and the rest of the damage done to the truck emailing them of to a engineer. They called me back telling me that I must have be mudding and they will not cover the damage to the truck. At this point I am very upset with the way they have treated this situation and made up there own story of what happened. Witch is not one bit true leaving me with a 4000 bill the truck will be fixed and I will be going back to chev.

2012 Ram 1500 Quad Cab Laramie 4dr Quad Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Bought a Dakota 4.7L 4WD. Traded it in 4 months later for a 2012 4WD Ram with a Hemi. Right off the bat I noticed a huge difference between this truck and the others I have owned in the past. More power than I need. Which is a good thing. It accelerates and tows up a hill like it is not there. Very comfortable ride. I barely noticed bumps in the road I noticed with my Dakota. It's the smoothest shifting vehicle I have ever driven. My girlfriend didn't understand the big deal until she drove it herself. Now she wants a Ram. She hated trucks before she drove it. My favorite part: More power than Ford, Toyota, Nissan, GMC and Chevy yet priced better.


Favorite Features

Acceleration is the trucks number 1 quality. it takes off like a sports car when you floor it. It is just as impressive accelerating when towing. 2) How comfortable a ride it is. I drive 3 hours from Fort Drum to Rochester. With other vehicles it became an annoying drive. In the Ram it seems like time flies. 3) I cannot believe how smooth the truck shifts. You don't even notice the truck is shifting unless your intentionally paying attention. 4) The girlfriend Loves it too. 5) The truck is by far the nicest looking on the market. Sharp and eye appealing. 6) I live in New York. 4WD is a must. This truck cruises easy at 55 mph down snowy roads. The traction Control and 4WD is awesome.


Suggested Improvements

The truck is perfect. However there is 1 flaw. In the middle of the back seat it concaves. The safest place in a vehicle for a baby is rear facing in the middle back seat. With the Concave seat only certain Baby Car Seats fit back there safely. An easy fix. We just found a Car Seat that worked with the Concave seat. However we couldn't get the one we wanted.

Review

Im a former Chevy guy had an 05 Chevy silverado Z71. There really is no comparison here. The Chevy was a great truck but it doesn't hold a candle to the Dodge. I went to look at the newer Chevy prior to buying the Ram and the Ram just outclasses the Chevy everywhere. Better interior, more features, better ride and WAY more power. The silverado feels like something is wrong under the hood after you drive the Hemi. You get way more for your money with the Dodge hands down.


Favorite Features

Hemi Power


Suggested Improvements

A tad more room in the quad cab would be nice. Put the stereo controls in the steering wheel.

Review

I purchased the Ram 1500 ST Quad Cab 4x4 (Black). I've had the truck for 3 months now. No complaints. I love it. I owned a 2007 Chevy Silverado 1500 before this and I must admit there is no comparison. The Ram is better in ride, comfort and in my opinion, performance. I love the sound of the 5.7 Hemi (390 hp) engine. Very aggressive. The outside of the vehicle looks great as well. I got the 20" chrome wheels, dual rear exhaust with bright tips and I also added a tonneau hard cover for the bed. Looks absolutely fantastic. It's perfect for commuting to the office or hauling toys on the weekend. Take one for a test drive. You will not be disappointed.


Favorite Features

5.7 Hemi, 390hp; Dual Rear Exhaust with Bright Tips, 20" Chrome Wheels, Power Heated Mirrors, Sirius XM


Suggested Improvements

Rear-Window Noise, Fuel Milage

Review

I've had my 2012 Ram 1500 Quad Cab "Outoorsman" for just about a year now. Without a doubt the most comfortable and well appointed vehicle I've ever owned. Absolutely no issues that sometimes plague new cars. Car like ride on the road, very quiet for a big truck, yet very capable off road. The off road ride is head and shoulders above any other full size truck. A bit on the expensive side for a truck but all vehicles seem to be excessively priced these days. Gas mileage on the 5.7L Hemi obviously isn't that great but you don't buy a full size truck if fuel economy is priority #1


Favorite Features

There a lot to love about the Ram 1500. Pardon the cliche but this is without a doubt a man sized truck. Plenty of headroom, legroom and whatever else room you may need. Seats are very comfortable. The new suspension on the Ram makes the on road ride rival my wife's Infinity for smoothness and road noise, but off road the Ram is head and shoulders above all others. On a recent outing in the mountains my Ram handled some pretty nasty roads without a problem. As my buddy's leaf spring equipped truck bounced all over the road, the Ram seemed almost Jeep like. Not sure how to explain it, other than to say the Ram seemed much better equipped than my buddy's F-150.


Suggested Improvements

Hmmm. I love this truck and can't think of anything I'd change on it. I promise I don't work for Dodge or a dealership. I guess the touchscreen could be a little simpler to use and the steering wheel controls are confusing until you get used to it. Overall this is an awesome truck with a car like ride, almost zero road noise a cool built in hard drive to download music and pictures onto, nav, bluetooth, etc., etc. etc. OK, since this is supposed to be the negative, the 17" OEM wheels are pretty blah, and the headlights seem a bit underpowered
