2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 4dr Quad Cab ST Rwd SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


I bought this truck with the 6 cylinder because I thought the mileage would be nice. I am getting 14 city and the best so far 16.5 Highway. If I run the the gas gauge to empty it cost 86 bucks to fill up at 3.20 a gallon. The towing rating for this 4 door 3.7L 6M truck is only 3500 pounds. I have to shift gears at at least 2750 RPM or I get passed by dump trucks when accelerating from a dead stop. My little SUV gets better mileage, tows more, and has an extra 75 horsepower. I should have got the HEMI!

Best Features

Very Reliable and it looks nice.

Worst Features

I do not think they should offer a 3.7L, 215HP, v6 to move a 5200 pound truck. Dodge needs to make this base truck more efficient.
