Edmunds' Expert Review

The latest maxi-brute to hit the streets and local construction yards. It's tough and mean, but also has a sensitive side. We're impressed.

vehicle overview

Armed with new powertrains, massive tow and payload capacities, updated Ram styling and plenty of features, the all-new 2003 Dodge Ram heavy-duty pickups should be quite attractive to commercial users, as well as serious consumers.

Starting things off are two new engines. The first is 5.7-liter V8. Called "Hemi Magnum," it marks the return of Chrysler's legendary Hemi engine name after a 32-year absence in Chrysler production cars. This new V8 is standard in both Rams and features a hemispherical combustion chamber (hence the name Hemi). It makes 345 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque, more than GM's 6.0-liter V8. The other new motivator is a high-output Cummins turbo diesel. This 5.9-liter inline six puts out 305 hp and a towering 555 lb-ft of torque. The high-output Cummins is optional in the 2500 and 3500, as are last year's 8.0-liter gas V10 and regular Cummins turbo diesel. A variety of transmissions are available (including a new five-speed automatic), as is manually or electronically controlled 4WD. Four-wheel-drive trucks will have a live front axle, as opposed to the Ram 1500's independent front suspension.

Regular and four-door Quad Cab body styles are available. For the first time, a two-wheeled rear-axle 3500 is available, providing an intermediate step in payload capacity between the 2500 and 3500 dually. Thanks to an exceptionally stiff frame and a new rear axle, towing and hauling capacities are quite high. A Ram 3500 dually with the HO Cummins has a 12,000-pound max payload (GVWR) rating and 23,000-pound tow rating (GCWR).

Dodge says it created a new duty cycle aimed directly at commercial customers, testing the new Ram in conditions ranging from -40 to 130 degrees F and running the equivalent of 150,000 miles at 95 percent of their maximum towing and payload ratings. Safety is also enhanced with the new truck, thanks to features like side curtain airbags, power adjustable pedals and seatbelt pre-tensioners. ABS is standard.

For those who like trucks, these new heavies should serve as well, or perhaps even better, than the current offerings from Ford and Chevy. Look for the Ram 2500 and 3500 to be on dealer lots in the latter part of 2002.

Beautiful Truck
Peariver, 1/12/2003
I like the good looks of the truck, the power and the driveability. The way it rides.I bought it to pull a taglone trailor which weight 7000 pounds an I am satisfied so far.
nice truck
Christian Wolff, 8/25/2003
This vehicle is excellent and is unbelievable while towing. The only problem is that you can not see the front corners. It sounds great and looks great.
I like the truck but have some issues
Howard, 8/31/2017
I purchased this truck new in 2003. Loved the look and the price. Best price I could find on a 3/4 ton pick up. Ball joints went bad the moment the warranty ran out. ABS control went out approximately the same time. I've never had it fixed because of the cost of the part. Had to replace the ball joints a second time as well as some other front end parts. The only thing I do with this truck other normal highway driving is pull a 2 horse trailer 2-3 times a year and haul some hay once in while. 14 years later the original battery has finally died. The rear fenders and bed are rusted so badly that it wont pass a safety inspection so I cant really drive it.
