Can't believe that this is the truck of the year!
Have about 2000 miles on it and have scheduled second trip to dealer to try to fix the radio.
The touch screen goes black and I can't control the radio.
I also have had on several occasions where when I turn the key nothing happens.
If I take the key out and try again, then it will start.
Not very comfortable feeling if I want to take it out into the woods.
I will give it credit for fuel economy with the 6 cyl and 8 speed transmission.
Not sure if I like the dial shifter.
In light of the other electronic issues I am not confident that will not become an issue down the road.
The ride is good, the paint was not the best quality
Good fuel economy
Better electronics, ie. the radio and ignition.
Paint could be a better quality. there are little pimples in the clear coat.
If you want a truck this is the truck to get! First off what's better than a hemi?! This is most fun I've ever had driving a vehicle in my life and I've also owned a charger. It's definitely a truck that I would buy more than once and I could drive it for years.
Drove 2013 f150 STX 4x4 ext cab, 7k discount, priced at $27k. Decent truck but kinda cheap interior, just felt it was overall average. Toyota wasnt even close asking 33k for similar equipped truck as ford. And Toyota doesn't discount! Poo poo to them, their vehicles have had lots of issues lately and Tundra is dated. Dodge had the quad express hemi 4x4 discounted 11k down to 24k! Drove it and felt more refined, smooth ride, powerful and great interior. Honestly has everything needed. Navigation, leather, and backup camera are really the only things missing in the express. I get 18mpg combined driving too! No Joke! Friend has ecoboost f150 and he can't get 18mpg and he doesn't have a hemi!
Aggressive sport look, Hemi power, cylinder deactivation, great sound system, lots of storage areas, dodge dealer is great and so far better than my Ford dealer.
Which by the way, ford offered me 15k for my ford ranger trade, dodge offered 19500!!!
Work with a dealer that wants your business!
Not ford cuz they think their sh!t don't stink.
Buy this truck, its phenomenal!
There is a reason its Truck of the Year and won over everything else!!!!!!!!!!!
Make a hybrid hemi natural gas combo that gets 50 mpg.
And then solve world hunger!
I bought a brand new 2013 RAM 1500 and must admit that it was my first brand new purchase for a vehicle. I got a couple blocks away from the dealership when all of a sudden steam and smoke started pouring out from under the hood. I looked down at the temp guage and it was slightly below the red mark. I pulled over and popped the hood and found a rad hose not attached to engine. I called the dealership who sent a tech out to meet me (later found out that the hose is given a plastic peice at the factory to assit in assembly and it was never removed causing the hose to fall off under pressure). I spoke with the dealership and Chrysler Canada and was told too bad basically, your stuck with it.
Ipod control, seats, overall look of truck and MPG.
After more research I have learnt that there is a lot of people complaining of problems that seem to stem from poor quality at the manufacturing level. Everything from paint imperfections to my scenario, a lot of problems with the big screen radio units causing truck malfunctions.
