Mostly because of the Hemi with MDS. Also, the ride is much more confortable

Pros

Great looking truck with ample power, bought to replace my aging 1998 Ram 1500

Cons

I would question Dodge's reliability; had a new cylinder head and full rebuilds of front and rear drive-train (under warranty fortunately), always seems to be some repair on the horizon.

Ram 1500 — I have liked the look of the Rams and after checking out Ford and Chevy (was previously a Chevy guy) went for my 09 1500 4WD. Just love the power (but not gas mileage) and looks of the truck but Ram have a way to go on reliability, seems I am always waiting for the next thing to go wrong!

I Love This Truck For It's Spacious Interior And Performance. — I bought this truck as a replacement for our previous minivan with a double duty as a boat hauler. The truck is awesome to drive and in the Laramie trim has all of the modern gadgets making it favorite with my wife.

Pros

I bought this truck new in 2009 and have had now issues with it in 50,000 miles. I am overall very pleased with this vehicle. Very smooth ride, avg 21 MPG highway, no maintenance cost for the first 4 years, very dependable. Plenty of power for a 2-wheel drive as I puller a 6x10 trailer with over 2100 lbs of cargo.

Cons

Horn quit working the the first week of Dec 2012. The back seats are not overly comfortable for long trips with the family. Vehicle has the power, but gas mileage when towing a trailer is not as good as expected. The avg was 15-17 MPG in the 350 miles.

Outstanding — Best fullsize truck out there...hands down. I average 20-22 mpg while cruising at highway speed. This is the quietest most comfortable truck out there. I get compliments about it all the time. I wish it would sit slightly lower though.

The inside is very roomy.  I like the Alpine stereo system upgrade and the touchscreen user interface.  It is very comfortable to drive.

Gas guzzler, but this is expected with a 5.7L Hemi engine.

Big Bad Red! — The inside is very roomy. I like the Alpine stereo system upgrade and the touchscreen user interface. It is very comfortable to drive. It's a gas guzzler, but this is expected with a 5.7L Hemi engine. I like the truck a lot and is much different than my Crossfire that I traded in. I miss the sport car though.

Pros

Great power. Silky smooth ride. Handles better than any other stock truck I driven. You get all the bells and whistles of a very expensive truck with less money.

Cons

Very small bed. Cargo capacity real light. Lots of recalls. Maintenance costs are higher than normal.

Great Truck For Light Duty. Not Made For Work. — Well I bought this truck brand new in Feb of 09 and sold it Feb 12. I was an affordable very comfortable truck with all the bells and whistles...heated cooled seats, heated steering wheel (witch I loved), All the things that come with the Laramie pkg. The HEMI had very good power but Dodge recommends that you change all 16 (that's right 16) spark plugs every 33000 miles. plus the HEMI had a big oil pan 8qts. so oil changes are a little more than normal. Doesn't tow well has coil spings with 4-Link in the back. It also had a lot of recalls. Overall very plush powerful truck for the money just don't think I would use it for heavy work.

I Love This Truck!!! — This Truck has Awesome Performance and its Built pretty good.. I like the tough look/ appearance of it.. Definately love off roadin in this truck which I could do more of this Summer!!! I just wish things werent so expensive when want to modify the Truck.. Even when the Truck is in 4X4 it doesnt feel rough @ when your driving on the city streets or off roadin which I really like cuz when its rough it doesnt feel very nice @ all.. I do still like the Blue color instead of the Gray Color but I still do like it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
