The v6 may be ok in town but not for highway use. Even the slightest hill and it loses speed. The cruise control can't keep up with traffic on the highway. This thing needs a turbo. It is one thing to have a truck that can't tow anything and we knew that. We have a real truck for towing (96 2500 Ram) but it should be able to keep its speed up. The seating position is also very low. I am 5'9" and I can't see the front corners. When you back up to a dock by yourself it is pure guess work. Really liked the older trucks where you could see out. Check engine light came on the second day and repeatedly since then. It wasn't a big deal with the dealership and they didn't want to work on it until the warranty expired and then they wanted to fix it. With the way the dealership worked us on this truck and the service department, this will probably be the last dodge or ram for us. We have been driving them since we bought the 96 and have had several different ones.
Only issue is doors do not stay open and will close on you. Been hit more than once from behind while trying to unload things. Very frustrating. No problem towing a bass boat. Moves right along. Excellent acceleration for passing. We just bought a second 2013 - used, since we really needed another vehicle. Now, if buying a new vehicle, would go for the Ford F-150. A LOT more options for the buck! RAM is stuck with no real innovations, which is disappointing. And I swore I'd never own a Ford. We may sell our 2013 RAM with the 14,500 miles and buy the F-150. We'd keep the 2013 we just purchased - higher miles on it and will be used for off-road excursions.
