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

Review

I traded in an aging Jeep Wrangler for this when Dodge was doing the employee discount option for anyone. I am still learning how to park this monster even after having it for several months. Just today, my average mileage (mostly hiway) on this all stock truck was 23 MPG. I was shocked! The onboard computer was indicating 17 MPG. Keep your foot out of the throttle and this truck will get decent mileage. When accelerating, I typically do not exceed 2000 RPM. Believe me, this is hard to do since Hemi sounds soo nice at wide open throttle.


Best Features

Hemi performance, ride quality, overall ergonomics, factory installed Sirius satelite radio, radio controls on steering wheel, sunroof, flip-up backseats to use the fold-out cargo platforms, tow capacity.


Worst Features

Side mirrors that automatically tilt down to view the rear wheels when the vehicle is placed into reverse. I do this manually for the passenger mirror when backing.

Review

Traded 05 Dakota with powerful 4.7 for Ram 1500 Hemi! Can't go wrong with this powerplant, it's outstanding for sure. It even sounds good with stock exhaust when you hit the gas. The truck rides and handles great. Great choice!


Best Features

Hemi makes this truck, and with good handling and great stopping power it's a great package.


Worst Features

Could use a larger glove box
