2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Fuel mileage could be a little better, but if you keep your foot out of it you can get 21MPG on the highway. About 16 on my highway commute. Shocks could be a little stiffer, but it's obviously tuned for highway comfort. I drove the Chevy and Ford comparable trucks, and I thought the Dodge was the most truck for the money.


Best Features

My wife loves the under seat storage places, especially for her purse when she doesn't want to carry it around with her.


Worst Features

There is a blind spot when looking out the front passengers side window. Between the door post and the mirror, there is more than enough room for a small car to hide in the blind spot. I've nearly been in an accident because I didn't see a small car coming with the mirror in the way.

2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 SRT-10 2dr Regular Cab Rwd SB (8.3L 10cyl 6M)


Review

It is a really nice truck to own. It turns heads everywhere you go. If only gas was cheaper than $2.00 dollars so that one could ride it more.


Best Features

The power in this truck is my favorite feature. I love seeing the faces of sports cars drivers when they are getting passed by a big truck.


Worst Features

Gas mileage

Review

Love my Dodge Ram Hemi. Great performance, comfort, and reliability. This is my third Dodge truck, and everyone has been wonderful. The only drawback is poor gas mileage, but the fun of driving this makes up for it.


Best Features

Power, usefullness.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage without giving up power.

Review

To and from work, about 13.1 mpg mixed driving. The hemi is fun very few people try the "right lane run up" when the lane is running out, great for passing. Use for light hauling, haven't tried the trailer package out yet. Ride is good for a truck, fit and finish now complaints. Rear seat accomodates grand daughters car seat with no problems (had to buy the quad cab, she can't be in front sear yet, hey it was a great excuse) Live in the metro Detroit area, no problem with snow. Thumper says welcome to Detroit, drive it like ya stole it.


Best Features

Has to be the hemi.


Worst Features

Any chance of a factory nitrous on this?

Review

The Hemi is sweet. Had to learn not to punch it until I swung out to pass because it gets it right now. Ride is pleasant and is a blast to drive. Some vibration at certain speeds but mild and is a 4X4. Paint quaility could be improved. Gas mileage is around 16 highway so far. 4X4 so far works great. Less expensive than a comparable equiped F150 by significant dollars. Much better look than Chevy.


Best Features

Hemi, appearance


Worst Features

Paint quality
