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


This is my 2nd Dodge Truck the first was a 1999 SLT 360 cubic inch Quad cab. I now have 45,000 miles in 3 years on this 2005 Hemi Laramie and it has never been in the shop that I can recall. The miles are probably 50/50 city highway, with 1/2 the highway pulling a Bass Boat.

Best Features

The exterior look, white over silver, interior looks and comfort, and THE HEMI engine. Highway interstate mileage without the boat is 21 to 23 mpg, with the boat 14.5 to 15. This is actual calculations, not from the fuel mileage computer.

Worst Features

The fuel mileage computer in my 1999 was off always more than 10% (high), this 2005 is better but is still always off (high). I had 4 GM cars that were always dead nuts within a tenth of a mile. Come on Chrysler get it right or don't offer it!
