Pros

Comfortable and easy to see out of.

Cons

Suspension.

45

My Opinions. — Good overall truck. Gets about 21 mpg highway with the little V8. The braking and handling are decent, just as any normal pickup. The build is probably a 8 out of 10. The coil spring suspension is nice for comfort, but horrible for towing or pulling due to "squat". The cost is good depending on what incentives are out, and how much is willing to be spent. The fun factor of it is about a 7. The truck does not have a whole hell of a lot of power, but that's the beauty of the gas mileage. This truck is not a workhorse. It is mainly for comfort.

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.

Pros

Amazing 390 horse power hemi engine; Can floor most cars on take off. Extremely comfortable ride, and amazing handling. A great feature is the hill assist. As the engine loses power or speed going up hill, the computer takes over and boosts horse power to maintain speed and ascend up hill.

Cons

The only con to the vehicle, as with any Ram is, the fuel economy. Although, for a truck it gets fairly good highway mileage, as for city driving ... Its like a hummer.  I believe its do to the immense weight of the Hemi engine.

Not Your Granfathers Ride, And Definitely Not Your Wife's Suv. — Style, power, and sense of manhood is this vehicles' forte. Whether you're cruising, or using it as a work horse, the Ram 1500 will more than meet your expectation. It handles like a car and works like a truck should.

After 3 Years, Still Love The Truck — This is a Sport 4x4 short bed regular cab with the Hemi. I special ordered it with all the electronic goodies. This truck has been the best of all worlds. During the week, it's a commuter. On weekends, it hauls wood, trailers, and whatever else. I do volunteer transporting of pallets of food from a distribution point to a local food bank. This truck is definitely used as a weekend warrior. On the occasions when I've done heavy hauling, I've experienced the coil spring squat that others have mentioned. Even so, the truck still has plenty of power to spare when hauling heavy loads. I tend to be a little heavy with the right foot. This truck is FAST! It is fun to drive. It handles nimbly for a full size truck. Bear in mind this is the regular cab, short bed, 20 inch tire version. Gas mileage can be decent with the MDS. After three years, you can feel when it slips back and forth between modes. With a little practice, you can drive this truck economically (for a full size truck). Vision out of the cab is excellent. Controls are sensibly placed for the most part, once you get used to them. I had a '99 Silverado followed by an '02 Avalanche. After 10 years of using Chevy controls, I was able to adjust to the Ram quickly. The call button for the bluetooth/phone could be closer to the driver. I've owned pick-ups from all three North American manufacturers. The Ram is by far my favorite. There have been some electronic problems. Once, the truck wouldn't start because it wouldn't read the electronic key. Sometimes the electric door locks won't work when you hit the lock button. The CD player sometimes won't read track and artist info on a disc. Except for the one time only not starting issue, these are all annoyances rather than major issues. Would I buy another one? Absolutely!!!

Dodge Truck — Reliable but bad on gas. Roomy, seats 5 comfortably. Nice options. Lots of underfoot storage, dvd player, hard drive to hold all music and mp3s, xm satellite radio, very smooth ride even on long trips. No major issues mechanically, great!

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

A Giant Leep Foward For Dodge — The only low in my book is the gas mileage. The new ram is so much better than the previous one and in my opinion much better than the competition. The new HEMI gives better mileage and the new look amazing. Go out and test drive it and you'll see.

Really Neat Truck! — Gosh, it's sooo fast! Brakes are good and handling is surprisingly excellent! Have it for 2 years now... no problems so far. Bold and aggressive appearance, very luxury interior. Stunning good gas mileage, I was really surprised. Had some mods done by now and that's what makes the truck even better! It's just so much fun, I'm really addicted to my R/T :)

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