I have the 6.7 Cummins Diesel. Love the truck. The U Connect is ahead of its time for being a 2011. Horrible MPG with the PDF and EGR system but it's almost completely worth it just for the power and reliability. Need to improve the wheel well design which is a magnet for rust..... same with the frame. For the price of these trucks I think Ram could afford a rust proof frame.
First of all, when I bought this truck brand new in 2012, I loved it. For 93,000 I drove it around and honestly didn't think there was a better truck on the road. I bought the top of the line Laramie Longhorn Megacab 4x4 with the diesel. The engine worked great, and pulled anything. There was an issue here and there, but when you put so many luxury features in a truck, little things are going to break.
However, when my drivetrain broke, Chrysler refused to cover it under the warranty, even with the service records. The damage caused was so severe (more than $30k) that my insurance had to total the vehicle. Dealing with the warranty claims department took months, and they were useless.
Cummins engine, 4x4 and the most interior room in any truck.
If Chrysler honored their warranty it would be great. Luckily my insurance stepped in and is going to sue Chrysler. But the company is garbage and all their vehicles are worthless since they don't honor warranty. 4/6 of the last vehicles I've purchased have been new chrysler. I'll never buy one again and I will tell my story to everyone I know in the hope they won't be taken advantage of by Chrysler. What a waste of $65k.
I bought my Ram in Nov with 20 miles on it, and just rolled over 10K, so far it's been 100% reliable, and a fun vehicle to drive. I went from a 500+ hp Mustang Cobra to this truck, and while I do miss the accleration and handling, overall the truck definitely makes up for the Mustang.
the G56 manual transmission coupled to the Cummins inline six diesel. I also LOVE the exhaust brake that when activated restricts the exhaust and really slows the truck down without applying the service brakes.
