Drive this truck thoroughly before purchasing
By jclaeys on


2011 Ram 1500 Sport 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Just traded in my 2011 Big Horn after "reluctantly driving it" for a mere 1500 miles.
The new "ECO" technology is the most unrefined of any truck out there....where its' Hemi shuts down 4 cyl. to "supposedly" improve gas mileage. It is course sounding and causes a fair amount of "vibration" in the underpinnings of the truck, which makes the driving experience less than pleasant. GM has this technology down pat...never noticeable.
This truck is beautiful...but the gas mileage is pathetic at best....12mpg, and no, I don't have a lead foot.
If you need a truck stay away from this one..the two most dreaded words you will ever hear.."it's normal"

Best Features

Interior is huge and refined plenty of nooks and crannys

Worst Features

It is time for Chrysler to work on the gas mileage issue. The paint quality was so poor upon delivery that it needed to be machine buffed to bring out a luster.
