2013 Ram 2500 Big Horn Crew Cab 4WDReview
Ram's Work/luxury Truck — Not much to dislike except for transmission jerking sometimes when being put in gear & sometimes when upshifting/downshifting. I sure like the seats (comfortable) and sitting up high so I can see, but overall visibility is poor when parking, turning, etc. The options on the SLT Big Horn are numerous & great. Good steering, brakes and controls, nice & solid with no NVH. The 8.4 inch nav screen works really well and the Garmin-based unit is excellent.Everything can be worked from the touch screen or voice command! Voice control is shaky sometimes due to noise level in the cabin. Love the truck!
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Will tow 17,500, lots of room in back seat area, nicely appointed interior (Canyon brown), feel safe in it, excellent build quality, comfortable seats, excellent options, beautiful user interface on the 8.4 inch color Nav screen for ALL controls. Definitely a long-lasting heavy duty truck!
Cons: Jerky upshifts & downshifts sometimes, hunts for gears sometimes; likes to run in overdrive (too low RPMS sometimes IMO); need side bars for good entry, fuel economy not great so far for a diesel (it's been getting better), has DEF container for emissions control. Pricey if you don't have a trade-in.

The trucks is great does everything a truck should do an then some! Ram did a great job with the new 6.4l and so much interior room. Still gets good gas mileage for a big truck with a big motor. Read More
I Will Continue To Only Buy Ram 2500 Trucks!
There honestly was not a whole lot that I DIDN'T like about this truck. In my personal opinion, if you are looking to purchase a 3/4 ton (or better) pickup truck, the Ram out performs all of the rest... Read More
Bad To The Bone
I really enjoy driving this truck on long trips, in town and off road. This truck turns heads and gets a lot of compliments. The only down fall is the fuel mileage 14 miles per gallon after break in p... Read More
Love This 2005 Truck
This truck is exceptional value, even with operating costs higher than expected. Would take any truck in a drag once it gets up to its sweet spot. Very good long haul comfort. Plenty of storage spa... Read More
I like the power it has and the towing and hauling capacities! It has a mean look and commands attention anywhere I go. The interior is comfortable and controls are easy to use. The body panels are no... Read More
