2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my Dodge 2500 SLT 4x4 Crew Cab
and was immediately impressed with the
overall appearance compared to previous
Dodge models. The ride is stiff as
could be expected from a truck this
size. Although the power is impressive
from the Hemi, the handling is not as
good as you might expect. I've noticed
that the trucks body is higher (hood)
then equivilent Fords and Chevy's I
have compared it to. Get ready spend
some money at the pump after purchasing
this pig! Average fuel consumption is
between 13-14 mpg. Overall, I really
like it, and I cannot imagine myself in
anything else on the market right now.

2003 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 5M)


Review

4x4, 4-door Hemi 2500-It's handsome,
tall and very rugged. After recently
suffering the woes of owning an IFS 4x4
Chevy, I was ready for a solid front
axle truck. That doesn't exist in the
1/2-ton class, so bring on the 3/4-ton
class. Choosing between the Ford and
Dodge was easy (Chevy's HD trucks are
all IFS). The Dodge AAM axles are
larger, the Dodge standard gas engine
(HEMI) is more powerful and efficient,
and the Dodge price was better. YES,
the truck is fast. It's a 6000lb,
3/4ton truck that does a 17.5sec 1/4
mile, or can haul my 4-horse
trailer.


Best Features

The HEMI rumble. The big AAM axles NVG271 manual transfer case. 545RFE, 5-speed auto transmission has 2 overdrives. 4th gear is 0.75 to 1, and 5th is 0.67 to 1. Cruise control at 70mph will bring 15mpg. 4-wheel disk brakes. Front coil springs. It fits in my garage.


Worst Features

The interior is bland and cheap looking. I wish it had the bed features of the Nissan Titan (compartments, factory liner, attachment points, etc.) Your wife may ignore you for the truck.

Review

I waited for the year that the 2500 was
introduced with the redesign + the
Hemi. It has not been disappointing. I
have received a lot of compliments on
it in the past year, mostly on its
style, but this truck has got guts
where it counts. I hauled a lot of
building material over the summer and
it was more than capable. The Laramie
package has all the necessary creature
comforts for my long commute.


Best Features

AM/FM/CD/Cassette sound system, folding rear seats, flexible center console


Worst Features

Lights on with wipers, XM satellite radio, auto on-demand 4WD, tighter turning radius
