2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 1500 SLT 4dr Quad Cab 4WD SB (4.7L 8cyl 6M)


I bought my 2008 RAM with 41,000 and am pleasantly surprised. I really never considered buying a RAM pickup until a friend of mine had me drive one. I was amazed at the responsiveness of the 5.7 L HEMI; clearly a step above the Chevy and Ford. I've now run 5 tanks of fuel through the truck and I've never had less than 18 MPG - far better than my Ford F-150 and better than my 4.7L Jeep Grand Cherokee thanks to the MDS. The interior is not flashy, but I find the simpleness pleasing and clean. The navigation and bluetooth is better than my Acura TL's. The sound system is decent and the brakes are incredible. Top this off with a comfortable ride and is very easy to drive. Buy one, worth it

Best Features

Styling with the 20" wheels Fuel economy Comfortable and extremely easy to drive Power from 5.7L HEMI

Worst Features

A bit more styling in the interior A very tall vehicle, side steps are required ABS should be on everyone of these vehicles as a standard feature
