2006 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 SLT 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


The ride for such a large vehicle is not bad, and actually very serene with a load or while towing. Power is always available, although rear wheel spin is very easy to accomplish. 20" aluminum wheels are stunning, although I've already had a flat. Go for aftermarket tires, the stock ATX's are horrible. I had experienced steering wheel shudder at 300 miles too, but never again. Transmission adapted well to my light foot. Sirius radio is great on trips and worth it in mountains or where no radio. Brakes fade easily, be careful in rain. Towing mirrors are well worth the price, but do get knicked by other vehicles too often.

Best Features

Hemi V8 while still getting 21mpg on the highway going 68mph. Seats are very comfortable and provide great support. Class IV towing package worth it. Audio and electronic accesories are awesome.

Worst Features

Better stock tires with 20 inch aluminum rims! Make 4 wheel antilock brakes standard on SLT. 6 speed automatic might be worth a few more mpg. Needs better finish on black clearcoat. Great vehicle otherwise
