2013 Ram 1500 Sport 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.6 ft SB (5.7L 8cyl 8A)

Review

Last week I bought a Ram Express 1500 Crew Cab with the Hemi and 3.92 rear end.
It rides like a dream!
I only have 500 miles on it, but got 19.3 miles per gallon on a 150 mile round trip.
Average between city / highway is 17.4 mpg in the first week.
Not bad for a 395 hp V8.
I didn't try Ford because I just couldn't justify the price difference.
Already own on GM product and it has been in the shop more times than I care to mention.
Plus the V8 just doesn't have any balls compared to the Hemi.
I am hoping this truck will pull my 6000 TT with ease.
Already installed a BedRug and Access Tonneau cover.
Also hoping it is reliable.
But first week has been great.
Rock on Ram!

05/23/2016 - Well, it's been 3 years now and I still love my Ram! Mileage isn't quite as good since my kids have been driving it as I am sure they are opening up the Hemi. But, towing my 6000 pound trailer has been awesome. My Ford E350 with the V10 would actually drop down to about 52 mph on a long hill and nearly overheat. With the Ram I can accelerate up that same hill and hit 70! Plus I get between 7.5 and 8 mpg vs. the 6.5 to 7 mpg I used to get with the Ford. Truck still runs like a watch and hasn't needed anything but standard maintenance. Plus it is way more than I owe on it. Yippee. I still highly recommend it.
