Pros

I'm Sure sleek looking truck will turn a few heads

Cons

I think dodge could have put a little more into the sound or entertainment system

I Found This To Be A Very Dependable Vehicle — To sum it up I would highly recommend this truck to a friend, mainly because of the low maintenance. I would feel very comfortable and safe putting my wife and kids in this solid work horse and day of the week.

Pros

My Wife just Loves this Truck,  When she is happy, so am I, Lots of room in back seat, added foot rails for easy access, all are passengers love this feature,  16 MPG is ok considering all the utility this Truck provides my Family, Comfort, Safety, Utility,  can it get any better

Cons

No back up camera, but I will fix that on my Birthday, I Hope. Crossover tool box could be larger for carrying groceries,  but back seats flip up and provide contoured flooring to fix that

5 Star Absoulutly — I like most everything as described above, great Truck and Family Transportation, We drive it every where. Have driven it on rainy days and nights, run into some snow in a trip to Laughlin, Nevada. Handled real nice going up the mountain and going around those curves in the roadway, no problem and we felt safe and confident at all times, Dodge Ram 1500, This truck really is Ram Tough and The comfort is another great plus, I hope are next Vehicle provides us with as much value as this one has

Pros

Rarely beaten in power, plenty of cargo capacity and people get out of your way when you get behind them

Cons

Repairs seem to be adding up now that ive crossed 90k miles once the repairs are made the parts perform solid but most parts seem to have 90k life span before they break

Love Hate Relationship — I absolutely love my truck - as much as my dog and almost as much as my wife but for all the things i love about it the repair costs and games played by chrysler are starting to get old. It's quite likely that when I do finally get another truck it will be another Ram but i'll do a little more research on the next one before jumping into bed with it. Not all chryslers are problematic my wife has an '11 Jeep patriot and that thing is awesome, no problems tons of space and excellent traction control/ 4wd - HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a small suv - 30mpg highway regularily 26 city with mid grade

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Sharp — This truck is the 4.9 v8 and feels just as powerful as the 5. + models with way better fuel economy. Very fast and responsive. Great work truck but also a great family truck.Seats six adults comfortably. This truck is a very reliable truck and a joy to drive

Pros

Power, handling, visibility, interior room, hauling and towing

Cons

Brakes are little under sized, wheels and tires should be bigger especially on an 8 lug axle. Fuel mileage is low but the truck weighs over 4 tons.

A Keeper — With all the interior room this has, it has been a great family truck. The back seat area is every bit as big as the front. At more than 4 tons and four wheel drive, this beast doesn't lose traction often. At more than 20 feet long sometimes it's difficult to find a parking space.

Pros

everything: I love this truck and the Ram brand. This is my 3rd Ram and I am only selling it to purchase a 2014 Ram

Cons

Not many, I only wish I had bought the Laramie with all of the options like Leather heated seats etc

The Best Truck On The Road — My third Ram in many years and I am loyal to the brand and will not buy any other. This particular truck has been very good to me and gets decent gas mileage and the ride is excellent. Tons of room in the cab and even enough room for my 120 lb dog in the back seat

Pros

It was the most luxurious ride in a pick up I had the fortune of experiencing when I bought it. It handles well and still runs quiet and smooth after 85000 miles.

Cons

The Driver seat has always had a cushion problem on one side causing a lean. I don't think the cushioning was sufficient or properly applied.

She's A Beaut! — It's a classy style of pickup. Not overstated in any way, but never lacks in the looks department. This model has stood the test of time and should continue to do so. The ride is very smooth and quiet. Handles highway and city streets and country roads with ease.

Great Truck If You Can Afford The Gas — Very stylish appearance with 20" chrome wheels. Good build quality very solid. Great truck with plenty of power & room. Reasonable repair cost. Fun to drive with the sun roof open. 4 wheel drive will get you out of most situations. The gas will eat you alive.

Pros

size like nothing else. huge cab rides awesome and handles great. with plenty of power

Cons

interior is rather plain compared to newer models and fuel mileage is not good

Outstanding If You Dont Mind Filling Up The Tank — everything about it is great except the fuel mileage and the rather outdated interior. it can haul and pull anything you want and seats 6 with plenty of room would probably easily seat 7 if it had the seatbelts. the cargo space behind the back seat is awesome too.
