Ford guy buys Dodge instead
By Axel Z on


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


I have always grown up with Ford trucks. I drove a new F150 and was not impressed. Not much of a Chevy fan. Real trucks don't wear bowties! Had a few smaller Nissan trucks also. Titan was a close second but much more in price. I rented one and that sealed the deal. Hemi has great power and gas mileage is decent for size and power. For short distances, not so good 11- 13mpg. Highway I have had up to 22mpg avg is 18-20!

Best Features

Exterior looks, 20" wheels, hemi power, fit and finish. Cabin seals up tight.

Worst Features

Signal on mirrors, power rear slider/defroster. Back up sensors!
