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


Review

I love this truck, totaly impressed with the hemi. Handeling,ride and even fuel economy have been outstanding. I average 17-18 mpg normal driving. About the same as a previous Mazda B3000 4x4 and nearly as good as my old Tacoma v6 4x4. Build quality is as good as the Toyota. I have put Rancho9000's on and handling is great with the big 20" Goodyears. Front GY's at 40K still look new. Rears, can't blame the tires. My first American made truck, been driving Japaneese trucks since 1974. Dodge, you won me over.


Best Features

Sound system with the Sirrius is great.Seats are great for long trips. My first truck with an automatic and this one shifts great, crisp and smooth and I can control upshifts and downshifts easily with the throttle. Hemi tows very well for a gas motor, gobs of torque. Works hard and looks mean.


Worst Features

Some of my complaints have been eliminated in the '6's. Hemi with MDS, 6 speed manual, heavier rear springs, I added a leaf, ig improvement, and the Rancho 9000's should be standard. Ok this will never happen, the V6 MB diesel would be a nice option in the 1500 and Dakota if fuel keeps going up.

Review

This is my second of the current generation of Ram. The first was a 2002 Quad Cab with a 5.9 V8. Great truck. This one is even better with a Hemi and 5 speed auto transmission. Very reliable and fun to drive. I recently had to rent a 2006 Chevy Silverado and could not wait to get back into the Dodge. It out performed the Chevy in almost every way. I will buy another one for sure.


Best Features

Confortable ride. Great looks. Fun to drive. Solid. Quality materials in and out.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage.

Review

Traded in my 2004 Ram 4.7L SLT Quad Cab for an '05 w/ a Hemi. This truck will pull a tree out of the ground! The most powerful gas V8 I've driven by far. Gas mileage not so good but come on it's a truck w/ power. What do you expect? Truck rides smooth and doesn't miss a beat going up hills on the highway. Should have went with the Hemi to begin with b/c there is a great difference in power and the gas mileage doesn't differ a whole lot.


Best Features

Hemi power, 20" wheels, smooth ride, guage panel


Worst Features

Of course gas mileage but everyone will complain about this until their truck gets 30 mpg

Review

I have never owned a pickup truck or actually have a need for a truck- however when i saw the limited edition Ram 1500 Daytona Edition in bright orange at a dealer... I left my Cadillac CTS-V and drove off with this great truck, By far my favorite auto ever owned. The power and handling are supurb, build quality is superior and who can't love that sound of the Hemi engine leaving corvettes at the stop light (in my dust!) The dealer installed extra's helped save me from going out and "pinping my ride"- the truck stops people in thier tracks when they see it. I am converted now, Dodge trucks from here on out. Looks like no other truck on the road. Dwarfs all the lame Chevy and Ford trucks.


Best Features

Radio controls located on the back side of wheel is a great touch. Lots of storage compartments


Worst Features

Need to look at redesigning 20' rims- they stick out and have gotten badly messed up during unfortunate curb run ins. Telescope steering wheel,

Review

The Ram 1500 Laramie with the optional 5.7 Hemi V8 is about as good as it gets driving a full size truck. Awesome power when it counts and loads of "eye- candy" both inside and out, especially with the sport package and 20" chrome wheels. The Ram 1500 is sure to garner lots of admiring glances whether it's on the move or just parked. With a feeling of quality throughout and lots of attention to detail this machine "out-classes" anything else in it's class. This truck is truly the truck lover's "dream machine".


Best Features

Bold design with great looks, especially the front end. Solidly constructed, good looking interior and well thought-out dash configeration. Plenty of interior cab storage.


Worst Features

Driver and passenger seats could use some improvement with a sleaker design and increased lumbar support. Gas mileage is dreadful but overall is really a small price to pay to drive this powerful "beauty".
