After too many vehicles owned through out all my life, the best I've ever had. Strong as tank, accelerates like a rocket and rides too smooth for a pick up truck. Awesome.

I love this truck but I am going to sell it. It has the new diesel arrangement with the diesel exhaust fluid. I have a '97 RAM 2500 Cummins engine that has 140,000 miles on it and runs like a top. Never let me down. That can not be said of the new truck. First problem was the exhaust filter regeneration. My kids were driving it back and forth to our house from the farm and they got a message saying "exhaust filter regeneration required drive at highway speeds". They did not know that meant drop your plans for the next 30 minutes and take a drive. Finally it went into "Limp Mode", which should be illegal as it limits speed to 35MPH. My wife and I nearly got killed trying to drive it to a dealer 45 miles away for a forced regeneration. We stopped and had it towed. Latest problem is DEF tank gauge quit working at about 47,000 miles which also gives you a CEL. I can still drive it but have to overflow the DEF tank to keep it filled. Problem appears to be widespread and occurs around 45K miles. Whole tank assembly has to be replaced at about $3,000 ($2,100 for part alone). Bigger problem is there are no parts and no ETA for parts. Even if I get a part I won't trust it. New Diesel/DEF is not ready for prime time in my opinion. I would not recommend this truck for city driving especially in heavy traffic. If you are stuck in a massive traffic jam and it suddenly decides to regenerate it's exhaust filter you have a real problem. No one seems to know if a new tank will solve the current problem or just kick the can down the road another 45K miles. I understand from checking around that all of the new diesel pickups do the "Limp" mode thing. There are several things that can cause that and another condition that does a countdown to truck won't start. If you want to buy a new diesel I suggest that you read the owners manual carefully before you buy it and ponder driving to your dealer at 35MPH. I am going to buy a gas burner.

This truck is worthy of consideration for purchase. It offers a smooth, quiet ride with quick acceleration and shifting. Brake action is above average and the stock tires offer good traction. Headlights work great on dark rural roads. Comfort and conveniences are exceptional. Good amount of storage behind seats. Great gas mileage. No significant maintenance issues yet.

I love this truck!!

Purchased Dec 2014, Laramie, Hemi, 5.7 4x4, first trip air flow to engine damper was malfunctioning. Radio/Nav (Best one they offer) has been replaced 2x and still malfunctions. Window control module has been replaced, drive side mirror has been replaced, had to return it for the shop to reinstall the rubber trim correctly. Wipers come on with rain sensor without any moisture on the windscreen or in the atmosphere (4%) cannot find problem. Alarm is set not to chirp, however when I lock it from the door lock and close the door it chirps 3x and unlocks. (nothing wrong they tell me) Truck interior venting makes a sound like a monster is yawning inside when they activate (thats the way it is they told me...HUH) Both rear wheel well flairs had to be reinstalled by a autobody shop, coming off. Door column trim (vinyl) had to be replaced 2x on drivers side. Its in now for fuel sensor not working and engine light on. Front left bearing or 4x4 hub seems to be grinding. Glove box latch sticks.....and the worst is after having all the repairs done I have to bring it back to repair the warranty work due to the sloppy mechanic/techns damaging items (while doing repairs) or getting grease on my leather interior and head liner. I got my truck back for the second radio replacement and went with the service writer to reinstall bluetooth items and the freaking radio wasnt even installed all the way. Mechanics need to loose money when they perform substandard work on clients vechiles. This truck has been in the shop approx 5 weeks since I had it....and I thought my Ford 6.0 Diesel was a nightmare!

I like the truck BUT it has has some problems. I bought this truck new in December 2014 and got a great deal on it. Several months after i had it, the check engine light came on. The grill shutter had broke and needed replaced. About six months after that, the truck started making a squealing noise when i started it in the cold. The dealership said the idler pully was bad and needed replaced. As of yesterday (3/31/2016) the truck had 24,5xx miles on it and the check engine came on AGAIN. The dealership said the oil pressure senser was bad and needed replaced. I really like the truck. Its fun to drive, gets good gas millage, and it looks sharp but, these problems are getting annoying. Its still a fairly new truck. Ive never heard of anyone having problems so soon.

I don't tow or haul things, but I wanted a truck. I own a home and end up transporting things weekly and this Ram works great. One thing I was always baffled by were the tie downs on my Silverado - they weren't cut out of the bed liner. This Ram came with 4 tie downs (2 in the nose of the bed and 2 in the tail) which makes for moving almost any household item or piece of equipment a breeze. This truck has all the get up and go I ever needed while all the while is great on gas. Currently, I'm right at 20 mpg which is awesome compared to my 2009 Silverado which was hovering around 15/16 mpg. The 3.6L V6 is everything most truck owners need and then some, but still they feel the need to spend the extra money on the 5.7L V8. Don't get me wrong, they sound great and really get going - they can also haul and tow well - but for someone with a family, who wants a 4WD truck to help with odd jobs and for transporting bigger items, this truck is a great option. Crew Cab a must IMO. The Ram has a MASSIVE cabin which is great for when all my friends are riding with me or when my wife and the dogs all pile in.

So far so good

3rd new ram pickup. 1st full size. 2014 LoneStar 4x4. White crew cab. Others were Dakota Laramie's. Quad cabs. Major issues with both trannys so I moved up to this one. Other than poor navigation updates and 2 rear wheel bearings that exploded at 7,000 miles I'm very pleased oh... Except heated seats suck. Can't seem to get a Dodge dealer to fix them. Tried 4. All say the work but then I show them what they are doing and the scratch their heads. All Dodge service centers get a 2 on a 10 scale from me. GM has best service hands down but you pay for it. GM trucks cost $8000.00 more for same type truck. GM service gets a 10+. If you don't mind arguing with a Dodge service manager then you'll have no issues I guess. Just try to contact your local Dodge rep. Ha ha. Good frickin luck. Ain't happening ever !!!! Make damn sure you buy the CHRYSLER only extended Warranty. APex warranty sucks. No renter car coverage for minor repairs. Hope you have a spare vehicle or a ride. GM will provide you a ride or car or whatever you want and always deliver your vehicle back you un detailed. Dodge service will deliver it back with added filth on your interior. David from Ft Worth Texas.

Its a great truck I have previously owned 3 cummins diesels but Im not pulling the way I used to. This is a great compliment for someone don't doesn't pull a lot of heavy weight but still likes the grunt of a diesel. Its not a accelerating beast but it does great for me and I get 21 mpg around town and 27 hwy...the air ride suspension is worth paying for especially when towing it gets the vehicle level...overall very happy with the truck the maint cost is a little high.....new update I have had a issue with the throttle control sensor and it has been in the shop 3 times now hopefully they have it fixed otherwose still love the truck..

This is my second Ram 1500, first was a 2003 Quad Cab 4x4 with a 5.7 Hemi and a 6'4" bed. It served me well enough that I went back to Ram when I purchased my 2014 Ram 1500 Crew Cab 4x4 with a 5.7 Hemi and a 5'7" bed. The '03 had he Off Road package, the '14 has the Outdoorsman package. I mention this because unless you have a true need to go off road, you really do not want an Outdoorsman. It is the most stiffly sprung 1500 in the Ram line. It also comes standard with 10 ply tires versus the normal 4 ply tires. Together these two things make you painfully aware of every pothole in the road! past that the truck is FANTASTIC! My truck has the 8 speed transmission with 3.91 read end (standard on the Outdoorsman) and with the 390 horse Hemi it will flat out move when you need it to move. The surprising thing is that I am averaging 17.5 mpg and on a recent road trip from Topeka, KS to Madison, WI the truck averaged 18.5 for 1198 miles. WOW ... in a 4x4 ... my best friends F-250 Super Duty 4x4 diesel doesn't do any better and I didn't pop $4500 for a diesel option like he did! I am now at 27,000 miles and still love my Ram. I change the oil, put gas in it, and goes and goes and goes, and looks good doing it. Would I recommend a Ram to a friend or family member, after eleven years and several hundred thousand miles ... Absolutely I would! Update March 2016: next month I will have owned my Ram for two years and I am now at 35,000 miles. After going through my second winter my overall mileage has dropped from 17.5 to 16.8 ... early morning warm-ups I guess. Last fall I added a topper and a full BedRug turning the back of the pickup into he biggest trunk I've ever seen! Do I still love the truck? That would be a yes and no. I still love the truck, but it was way overkill for me. The Outdoorsman is the most off road ready pickup in the 1500 line. As such it is more stiffly sprung and comes standard with 10 ply tires. If you hunt, fish, need to go off road to get to that special spot, this is your truck. If like me you spend 95% of your time on streets and highways you would be better served with a Big Horn or Sport model.

Smoking & Burning Oil at 8800 miles

I have the 2014 Ram 1500 BigHorn Crew Cab with the 5.7L Hemi. I purchased it new and have approximately 8800 miles on the truck. If the vehicle sits more than 30 minutes, when I start it I get a huge puff of blue smoke and there is carbon/soot all in both tail pipes. The brand new Hemi is clearly burning oil. Either I got a lemon, or you should stay away from this gigantic hunk of junk!! Ram has been incredibly defensive and hard to work with so far. Biding my time and following the process to solidify my lemon law claim if they don't step up.

I have a2014 BIG HORN Crew Cab 4x4 3.6 V6 305 HP and 269 lb's of torque. The 3.6 requires less maintenance than the other 2 engines. There is good power and is quick from the start and passing. I especially like the dial shifting knob, out of the way easy to use. Gas mpg is 22-24 in 75 degree + temp, and 19-21 in lower temps. Fit & finish are very good. Ride is comfortable, Crew Cab is great for 6 men. Plenty of storage bins, & under seat. NO problems in almost 15K. Goodyear tires are City street tires only. Good discounts,& rebates. Most buyers have mind made up on brand before they buy. Brand loyalty in trucks is unchangeable, I think.

I've had my pickup for a few months now, approx 5,000 miles on it. Never all it seems pretty good, but there are a couple of annoying things - it was right around $30k (I'm in Canada). It came without mud flaps, front tow hooks or any other trim. I understand you could get those by paying for a higher trim level, but I feel all trucks should come standard with those (they are on the F150). Aftermarket was fine though. My biggest issue is with the fuel economy, which I expected to be not great as its a v8, but it's actually around 14mpg easy driving in the city, 16mpg on the highway. also, stock tires are horrible - if it rains (or aaagh - snows!) you're all over the road.

Love my Ram pickup!

I bought my Ram 1500 new in November of '13. After 26,000 miles, I can report only 1 repair (oil pressure sending unit fixed under warranty). Gas mileage on a recent trip from Wisconsin to Florida varied from 20.5 to 25 mpg. My Tradesman trimmed truck came with so much standard equipment, I don't know why anybody would need to spend more! This truck rides and handles like a big American sedan. The 8 speed automatic works great, though I have caught it napping at times when kicked down. My only complaint is I wish the seats had lumbar support for my middle-aged lower back, but I suppose the higher trim levels may. It's no surprise Ram won Motor Trend truck of the year twice!

We traded our 2012 Silverado in on this new Ram a few months ago, and so far, love the truck. The Chevys 5.3 ltr had very sluggish acceleration, and an irratic shifting 6 speed transmission. I test drove another new 2014 Silverado, a 2014 F150, and then the Ram. The 2014 Chevy was once again, sluggish. The Ford was ok, but the Rams performance and handling, IMO, was the one that was the most enjoyable to drive. The acceleration is amazing, and the 8 speed transmission is precise. The Hemi engine is powerful, yet we have been getting 25 MPG on the highway. Pretty amazing truck all the way around, plus it was priced thousands less than the Ford & Chevy.

I leased a 4 door, 4x4 Ram 1500 with the 3.6L V6 about 10 month ago. I drive it as my daily commuter to work and use it for small projects around our property. Average fuel economy is about 20MPG in mostly highway driving which I think is fantastic for a full size 4x4 truck. It hasn't been to the dealership for anything other than the initial oil change and tire rotation.

I have never had more trouble in my life then with this new ECO Diesel! Pulled out of the lot with 16 miles on it check engine light came on. Took it in 3 times before it was fixed. Then I finally got to drive it and the drivers side window leaked and I could not put fuel into the truck without getting a bath or having fuel run all down the side of the truck or vapor locking. Has been in and out of the shop for well over a month (this will be the 3rd time) and they are telling me they do not know what is wrong with it. LEMON! Will never buy another dodge again. Called Dodge numerous times and they are SLOW... I spent 41,000 on a truck that now has 2100 miles and I can not even drive it.

I purchased this 1500 9-1-14 to replace my aging Titan (10 years old). The dealership was offering some great incentives for the holiday and the truck seemed to be rated pretty good so I thought it was a no-brainer. Until, I took it over my friends house (concrete driveway) and he informed me that I leaked transmission fluid all over it. I then looked under the truck and sure enough, it was leaking. Well, it has been to the dealer 4 times now and they still are having trouble fixing it. It is now at the dealer again. When they picked it up this morning, it had 1568 miles on it and most of them are from them doing test drives. Contact Chrysler support yesterday and waiting them...

This is one nice machine - I went from a Avalanche & was concerned if it would be less of a truck. Not so, very pleased so far w/more power & equal mileage. Haven't done any towing as yet but it seems more powerful in general driving. It is a big truck w/the crew cab but very serviceable. No hint of bear-tracking in snow & no problems w/control at high speeds on rough road surfaces. no vibrations & very smooth drive train

I should be doing a commercial for Arrigo as this is the 6 vehicle I have purchased from them in 8 years. I had a 06 Ram 1500. Traded it for a 09 Ram 1500. I didn't like the truck. Loved the way it looked, hated the way it road. Talked to John Arrigo during my first oil change and I ended up buying a new (leftover) 08 3500 Diesel Dually. Loved the truck but wasn't using it for the things it was intended for enough. Sold it. Just purchased this truck a few months ago. Got the basic Tradesman with the 5.7 liter Hemi. Great truck! Pulls my 6x12 enclosed trailer with my HD Road King and gear like nothing is behind it at all. Quiet, well put together and made for work.

This is my first truck. Previously had a Cadillac SRX and other crossover type vehicles. Decided most of what we did was hauling stuff. We were surprised to end up with truck. It is just as described in the reviews. Comfortable, quiet, solid and gets better mileage than the SRX. Solid 23 MPG from Washington, DC to CT. Averages 20+MPG in daily driving, incredible for a full size truck. Being my first truck, the Fun To Drive category isn't really there. While good for a truck, it isn't up to the handling of the SRX. Still I knew that going in. The V6 does a great job, hauls my camper and boats. I tested the Hemi, but it didn't seem to need it. Very happy so far. UPDATE: At nearly 20,000 miles the truck continues to perform flawlessly. I am still very pleased with the V6 performance and have never required more. Gas mileage continues to amaze me for a full size crew cab 4WD pickup. 20 around town, 23-24 on a trip.

The 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is a machine worth purchasing. I have driven the truck for 2,500 miles and I am totally impressed with the interior ride and quality and the fuel mileage (25 to 30 mpg). The truck has great storage compartments to fit my tools, bikes, boys' baseball stuff, and suitcases. I have not yet towed my Wrangler for 4x4 excursions, but I am sure it is up to the task. Mileage is phenomenal, around town I am in the 21-23 mpg range, on the highway around 26-27 at 75 mph or 30 to 31 at around 67-69 mph. This is tested and verified by me. The interior is quiet, 1st class, and the hands free system is excellent.

I thought these hemi engines got poor mileage but this 4x4 gets over 20 mpg just driving back and forth to work. This truck blows away ford and chevy in every category. looks better, rides better,nicer interior with more options that come standard. Drive one if your in the market for a new truck. It sells itself, and was priced better. I did have a negative bias against the dodge truck but seeing is believing.

Wow!!! After 3 years and 88,000 miles in a 2011 Ford F-150 Ecoboost I can tell you that the Ram makes it look like a glorified golf cart. I had driven several Rams before making my choice on which one to get. I ended up going with the Hemi attached to the 8 speed automatic and 3.92 gears. At first I was concerned that I would pay the price at the pump for the 3.92 gearing but I have found that this has not been the case at all. When driving models with 3.21 gears I had to get into the gas more to get the response I was looking for. With the 3.92 not only am I getting better performance but I don't need to hit the peddle much to get it to move which ended up resulting in better gas mileage.

Although its hard to go go wrong with any full size truck these days except for maybe the Nissan Titan, the initial impression of my new Ram seems to be just a little bit better all around. Even if you have been a "hater" in the past, which many of us are, and for good reason, i strongly urge you to at least test drive one and give it a fair chance. You wont be disappointed. I found it to be the best performing, arguably the best looking, best optioned and with current rebates it was the cheapest. It is my belief that Ram Dodge Fiat (whatever) is trying to make a statement with this truck and in my opinion has done so! although i gave reliability a 5, only time will tell. GIVE RAM A CHANCE!

Still early, but "Wow." Bye-Bye F150 !

Coming off of three-straight F150 platforms ('07 Lincoln Mark-LT, '09 Loaded Lariat, '11 Platinum) I decided to take a break, but that triumvirate set the bar high ('11 Plat was the nicest half-ton I ever drove.) Well, the past is the past. This '14 Longhorn simply outclasses the Fords across the board (for now, until FoMoCo stops resting on laurels.) Gorgeous, comfortable, luxurious, powerful, intuitive technology...it has it all. The "Western" themed interior is a little over the top (a bit long on badges and saddle-stitching) but it's crafted so finely, it's hard to say that there's something else you'd prefer.) Here's the new bar for Ford, Chevy and Toyota to jump over. Good luck boys!

The Ram has come a long way.

I just upgraded from a Toyota Tacoma, and I love this truck. It's like riding in a luxury car with all the amenities, but it's still a truck. I can't wait to start hauling and towing stuff. I love this truck!
