Excellent, Reliable, Amazing Truck! — This truck makes you feel like your queen of the road!!! Very sturdy, durable, dependable truck. Plenty of storage outside of the bed of the truck. You can't go wrong with this beautiful truck!!! Could be a little more comfort in the seating, but I love and will miss this truck!

Fun — Going on three years now. STILL love this truck. Funny how they draw you in with rebates but then you learn the car is now worth nothing. Only glitch so far is the GPS. On occasion, it will not boot-up. Restarting the truck after being off for 5 mins solves this. Oh, and the wheels! They are beautiful but for $55k you'd think you'd get solid aluminum wheels not plastic chrome glued to aluminum.

Pros

Love almost everything about it

Cons

Not much

Love — My only complaint is the button for manual shift is in a spot that I accidentally push it when I put it in drive or park. I love pretty much everything about this vehicle. Not a big fan of the nitrogen tires

Great Vehicle — I like that the inside of this vehicle has plenty of leg room in the front and rear seating for driving on long trips. Seats six people comfortably. Pulls a 30ft camper really well no problems and has plenty of power.

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.)

Powerful, cargo, looks

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

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.
