Love The Versatility — This truck rides like a car.. A big one. And can carry anything you choose to load it with. Long drives are incredible. Highway mileage is 20. Depending on the speed you drive, it may only be 18 mpg (above 75). Only have 24,000 miles on it, but I have friends with over 180k and are still trucking!

Great — This truck looks great and runs even better. The Hemi motor supplies ample power with decent mileage/fuel range for a truck. I am very impressed with the fit/finish and overall quality of the truck. The interior is well laid-out and very functional. Interior materials are solid and pleasant to the touch. Great options too (heated/cooled seats, heated steering wheel, trailer braking). Also, the Dodge UConnect (for blue tooth and voice commands) works really well and is easy to operate.

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

Love It All, X When Go To Gas Pump. — Got it new 2012, late summer of 2013, 370 miles, for $31,000. Like it, wish turned tigher. Still a great truck. Looks are better than the Crew cab or Maxi-pad cab. Will keep for 15 years plus. Nice truck. Plan on a bed cover.

Pros

Suprising power for a V6

Cons

The ugly rims

Ram — This is the six cylinder model. It cuts down to three cylinders when the full six is not needed. It is a comfortable ride. Nothing real fancy about it, but it is a nice truck. Have a few ideas, nothing in stone yet.

Best Pickup On The Road. — I like that you can carry larger loads than in a car while maintaining a car-like driving impression with the 2-door option. The rear and side view while in traffic is excellent. The 4wd option makes winter driving an uneventful experience.

Primary Use: Family transportation
