2011 Ram Dakota Extended Cab BigHorn 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Fit and finish is very good, ride is comfortable, however, performance is sorely lacking. MPG is 15, at best. The transmission is reluctant to shift into the higher gears -- even letting off the accelerator doesn't encourage a shift change. The 3.7L engine lacks the oomph to take on inclines without downshifting to 2nd gear. The rolling resistance seems unusually high as it drives like it is towing or hauling a heavy load. One would expect mediocre fuel economy to have a trade off in power, or vice-versa, but that's not the case. Dodge would do well to re-outfit this truck with a better engine and transmission.


Suggested Improvements

As noted previously: Dodge would do well to re-outfit this truck with a better engine and transmission.
