Diesel is not an option listed-why?
By goose on


2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Vehicle is outstanding, should have bought a diesel engine before this truck , mileage is what I had hoped for. Actual mileage around town is on average 18 mpg or better, on the highway at posted speeds it has achieved 24 mpg - When I first pulled the 7500 lb trailer the average mpg was about 14, however the engine is broken in now , so I expect it may improve. Have only been back to the dealer once for warranty, the transmission computor lost its mind and would not shift correctly---Wish I could have found a stick shift--would recommend this. Great truck

Best Features

Diesel engine is quiet compared to brands--easy start in cool weather , lost of power and fuel efficient

Worst Features

Front drivers seat needs improvement ,I weigh 220 and seat through the foam padding and contact the steel seat cage on the left side bothering my hip-- causing discomfort after extended driving periods.Chrysler dealer is of no help.Good truck otherwise.
