The ignition key is a joke its bulky ugly and reliablity of this key is questionable. Rotary shift is ok but would prefer a lever some oy the interior parts are cheap,howevever,this truck is the bottom line tradesman so I guess it is accetable even though it has the upgraded interior all other features are acceptable except for th location port for the thumb drive. I find the AC, and entertainment center very good.

Ram Awesome

Got this three months ago and already have 6,000 miles. The shift does suck, I think a knob is no fit for a truck and Dodge needs to bring back the Colum shifter. I work for Toyota building the Tundra's and Tocoma's and this is the truck I would rather drive. For the price, I could but two Ram 1500's for the price of 1 Tundra. My truck has the V6 but the pickup power is unbelievable. Drives smooth and has lots of power. After the first month my mother went and got one for her self. We are a Dodge family!

Awesome truck!!

It is an awesome truck, Very tough and reliable. Luxury and comfort is a plus. I traded in my 2016 tacoma because it lacked refinement in every single aspect. I'm very glad I bought this truck even though its got over a thousand miles I have really enjoyed my purchased.

Fit and finish doesn't live up to the price tag

I bought a new 2016 RAM 1500 Limited on September 30 to replace my 2012 Dodge RAM 1500 Big Horn. While there is plenty to compliment about my truck with respect to ride quality and power , it is extremely disappointing as I have discovered poor finish in terms of exterior paint (numerous fish eyes), minor visual damage to interior trim, and poorly/losely fitted exhaust components. I just completed my official RAM buyer customer satisfaction survey noting these concerns. A week has passed and no response from RAM. It's clear that spending $58,000 dollars for a luxury truck doesn't matter. All of this said about my new 2016 RAM, none of it was a great surprise as my 2012 had some serious fit and finish issues that I had to have corrected with my dealer. My RAM is nice and I stuck with RAM this time around as my truck was assembled in Michigan (engine built in Mexico), unlike the GM full size trucks now built in Mexico and Ford I didn't consider at all (just not a fan of the Ford product). But again, I wish RAM would listen to its buyers on these concerns. I spent serious money on this product and it should be delivered in a fully quality inspected state. Based on my experience having bought two RAMs, quality assurance with respect to fit and finish is not part of the manufacturing process. Another aspect of my new truck I find highly frustrating is with the UConnect and Pandora. One reason I traded and seriously upgraded my truck is to have a vehicle with Pandora navigation controls on the dash. I have invested time in going through the proper steps to setup the UConnect in the truck and on my iPhone only to informed through a call to UConnect Assist that there are unresolved issues with the UConnect system and Pandora. As such, the Pandora app will not load on my UConnect system and to listen to Pandora I basically have to do it the old school way through my phone controls -- a dangerous disappointment! Again RAM, I spent a serious amount of money on this product only to be disappointed. Do something about this or refund me the cost of this useless system in my truck! (Update as of 10/27/16 -- Since my initial submission of this review I have learned that the Pandora app will not work on the UConnect system as a technology company that supports the relationship between UConnect and Pandora backed out of their contract. FCA dealers were made aware of this in May 2016, however I was not informed as a consumer eagerly looking forward to having this feature. This is unfair and deceptive and I should have been informed of this prior to my agreement to purchase my truck! In all likelihood it would have stopped the deal. Shame on you RAM!) Other issues: 1) I join with other reviewers that have complained about the knob shifter -- I hate it! However, it seems with electronic shifting most automakers are moving to knobs and push buttons. I really miss my console shifter on my 2012 truck; and 2) RAM should also have an easy down tailgate and crash avoidance systems to put the Limited on par with the competition. I hope I come to terms with these issues and disappointments in light of the price tag - or I face some serious buyer's remorse. Only time will tell how well I really like this truck overall.

I simply can't get past the cheesy "shifter" Ram borrowed from Jaguar. Love the truck in every other way. Great hemi power, nice sound system and nav, fairly decent interior. But having a "knob" to shift with is simply ridiculous. I understand all transmissions these days are electronic, but a knob is just taking it too far. Same reason I'll never buy a Mercedes with their "e-shift". You took a console shifter and replaced it with a cheesy, flimsy stalk on the steering wheel? Even their sportier models they seem to be proud of their "e-shift". Sorry, they both lost my business. It's not a video game, it a car/truck. Bring back the console shifter please!!

Love our new Truck!

Bought 30 days ago and has 1980 miles on it. Vehicle went to the shop 2 weeks after it was bought for a defective HVAC Vent actuator. Air would only blow on your feet regardless what you selected. About 1 week later same issue occurred and a HVAC Control Module was replaced but the dealer reports that the issues still persists and they do not know what could be the issue. Waiting on Ram technical support to help out, rental was provided until fixed. First Dodge Ram and not really to impressed at this point.

Great value for a big sedan

Seats more people than typical SUV. Four medium adults fit in crewcab bench with plenty of leg room. Great ride due to oil aprings on all four corners. Very responsive transmission and engine combination - 8 speed 5.7 Hemi. Great highway gas mileage.

Owned a 2005 1500, liked so much bought a 2010. Why not buy a 2016 SLT quad 1500. Great truck. Drives like a car. Love it. Will but another in a few years. Have owned Ford and Chevy. No comparison. Ram tough.

We bought the 1500 Big Horn Crew Cab with the Eco Diesel ( I couldn't select the 3.0 diesel engine in the drop down menu). Got a good deal, a little over $10k off MSRP. Just took at 3500 mile drive and it was a pleasure. At 75 mph we were getting 26.5 mpg, so about a 700 mile range on a tank full. When we were doing 55 mph we were over 40 mpg. I figure I used about 2 gallons of DEF. The ride is so smooth and quiet. When I ride in my 2012 Subaru Outback It feels so clunky compared to the Ram. This is the most expensive vehicle I have ever bought, but I am enjoying it. We added nerf bars, spray in bed liner and trifecta cover. After having it a month we are over 4500 miles and no big issues. We have the towing package so the side mirrors are huge. We did take a hit from someone in a parking lot, but it folded in, so only a small scuff mark. In parking lots we now fold in the mirrors, manually, the Laramie has power mirrors. Our only complaint is wind noise. We think it is coming from the mirrors. Above 50 mph it is noticeable and a little of a distraction. I may take it into the dealer to get it documented. Overall, highly recommended.

OK I reviewed this

I love this truck so far. I rated the rain/snow traction and maintenance just on expectations. I know this Rebel 4x4 with the tires it comes with should have no trouble. The ride is great and the power is excellent. Great comfort, space and interior controls. Love the looks of the truck and with the power it has I should have no trouble pulling anything even though I haven't yet. The mileage is not on the upper end of the ratings, but that's partly due to the roads I drive on - lots of hills.

I love it!

I recently traded my 2013 Bighorn 4x4 crew cab for 2016 4x4 crew cab Laramie. The exterior of the trucks are quite similar, except for the OEM Flares standard on the Laramie, nice look. Going from the Bighorn to the Laramie is a step up in ride quality, reduced road and cabin noise. My wife commented on the smooth and quiet ride on a recent 4 hour trip. The 8 speed transmission is smooth and quiet, no jerking or lagging, it's always right there. There is also a noticeable difference in fuel effeciency, both trucks were v8's but going from a 6 speed transmission to an 8 speed is a huge improvement in fuel economy. The interior of the Laramie is impressive along with all the technological enhancements, this truck can respond to your every command and can keep you connected by hands free phone, text, navigation, music and on an on! I have been in 2016 Ford and 2016 Chevy and their ride and power don't compare, plus their technology leaves much to the imagination, small screen interface and complicated instrumentation!

Just got the Ram Longhorn Limited v8 Hemi with air suspension and all the bells and whistles. I'm a female owner who enjoys driving pick-ups and large SUVs, and looking really cool in them! So I decided to buy this truck, because I got a good deal on it. The rebates/incentives were great and the dealership wanted to move these trucks off their lot. So, instead of buying another SUV or truck, I decided I'll go with the Ram Limited.
What I love: It has way more features than I could afford in any other comparable vehicle at that price point. It is luxurious inside. I love the technology -- front and back sensors, back up camera, air suspension, navigation, the touch screen system that controls everything is pretty much the best I have ever used. I also love the rotary shifter, power adjustable pedals, heated and cooled seats, push-button start. The detailing, stitching etc inside is simply awesome. The ride is relatively smooth and it handles awful potholed roads quite well.
What's missing: Daytime running lights! Why can't they put in some cool-looking LED DRLs on a $57,390 MSRP vehicle? Also, missing is a front camera, capless fuel door, xenon headlights, and a soft opening/closing power tailgate that a woman can easily use. It does need more sound insulation, because the wind noise does get into the cabin. The fit and finish needs to be improved, especially with rubber seals and other exterior trim. The truck is a gas guzzler, that's no surprise, but they need to do what Ford did and go aluminium.

Love the dang thing

Initial review - I purchased a Laramie EcoDiesel crew cab 6'4" bed 2 weeks ago. It's the nicest riding vehicle I've ever been in. It soaks up the bumps and dirt roads with ease. The 3.0 diesel is amazing. The trip home from the dealership (155 miles, mostly HWY) I managed 27.4 mpg, over the EPA estimate. Part of this due to the fantastic 8 speed transmission. It's always in the right gear and never "hunts". Acceleration is OK, but I didn't buy a ~6k lb vehicle with a small diesel to drag race. I test drove a hemi and it was straight up fast, also unnecessary. The leather interior is awesome and the ventilated seats work very well. Rear storage is excellent and fold flat floors work well. I've only ahad 1 issue with the Uconnect system, but a reset fixed that. Pandora, Bluetooth streaming and USB "browsing" all work excellent. The Alpine sound system is good for me, I'm not a huge audiophile though. Stock tires are mediocre, but most vehicles have this issue so no negative marks.

Upgraded from a 2006 Toyota Tundra and boy was it an upgrade. The Ram gives you a lot for the money, and the big horn package kicks it up a notch. I got the towing package with trailer brake (planning on buying RV) and I like the way it is integrated into the instrument panel. The engine is awesome although I would like a little more exhaust growl but it has plenty of get up and go. I plan on installing a K&N cold intake which is supposed to add some growl and 15 HP that I really don't need and there is supposed to be mpg increase as well. Ok I will admit the gas mileage isn't the best but did I mention the get up and go. Right now it is averaging 17 mpg all round with a mixture of highway and city driving. At first I wanted the Alpine upgrade but couldn't get it without ordering from the factory and I did not want to wait 8 weeks so I have the stock system which is just fine with me. Sounds better than I expected plus the connectivity is perfect. The system works flawlessly with my iphone and I could not be happier. The ride will rival most cars and there is storage a plenty inside the cabin. I have more bins than I have stuff to put in them. I have had my truck a month and a half and so far I couldn't be happier.

I am also a 2006 Nissan Titan owner and I will have to say that back in 2006 there were more luxury options than on trucks today. here are the things I had to but for the Ram that the Titan came stock with: MUD FLAPS, SPRAYED BED LINER, ADJUSTABLE TIE-DOWNS IN THE BED, BUILT IN TOOL BOX, SLOW OPENING TAIL GATE, NERF BARS, HEAVY DUTY FLOOR MATS. These are things trucks should come with from the factory. On the interior the Titan also blows the Ram away with toys from 10 years ago that should still be on todays trucks. The ride on the Ram is very nice but they put car tires on them to give a quiet and smooth ride and by the way the tires only last about 13K miles. I do not use the bluetooth because there is no option to use my headset or speaker phone in the truck, don't understand why car manufactures are not smart enough to create this feature, who wants speaker phone on their private calls when there are other people in the vehicle. The Ram has great power and tows good, overall I am happy so far with it but very disappointed in the way they make it look good. If a person never owned a truck and purchased one today they wouldn't know what they are missing, but i do.

so far so good

No problems or complaints the first 3 weeks of owning this vehicle. Does everything it should and all that I expect from this type of vehicle. I am hoping this will continue and time will tell. Love the smooth acceleration, comfortable seating, a whole array of technology to simplify the most basic of tasks. Overall a great looking, sounding, and running truck.

My last truck was 2009 Ram 1500 5.7, I loved the truck and had just a few problems in 100K miles. My new 2016 Ram 1500 Larmie 4X4 is not the same experience. At 1400 miles the engine light came on the dealer replaced the O2 sensors. 120 miles later the engine light came back on and they ordered a new computer and replaced it. Still did not fix the problem now they are replacing the engine wiring harness. I only hope this fixes the problem so I can get back into my new truck.

The MPG on the Rebel is quite low. Only problem I can find with this truck. I'm averaging 14.5 combined right now. Everything else about the truck is fantastic. It is the best ruck I ever owned. I love the interior quality and the ride comfort the most! Oh and the Alpine sound system upgrade is totally worth the extra $300. It a must have if you listen to music in the car.

Too early to comment on reliability but after a month there are no issues. Buying experience was fairly pleasant thanks to the Edmunds price quotes; I'd never walk into a dealer again with out them. The Rebel took a bit to get used to driving as I went from an Acura RL but now I enjoy the ride.

I've had the truck for a month or so & love it -- great power and acceleration, good fuel economy, plus a comfortable ride -- all at a good price. I added a spray in bed liner, a tonneau roll cover, fender flares, and custom fit floor mats, all from third party vendors. I also had the oem electric trailer brake installed by the dealer, but haven't towed anything yet. The only critical feedback I have is relatively minor -- the AC required work prior to accepting the truck; a couple scratches on the passenger side door also had to be repaired. These items could suggest that the dealer needs to step up their pre sale inspection process. The shift knob on the dash gives more space on the counsel which is great. However, I find the steering wheel upshift/downshift shift control cumbersome. For example, to down shift you push a button on the front of the steering wheel -- given the other steering wheel controls I find myself hunting for that button. (Other vehicles put the steering wheel shift controller behind the wheel as paddles which I find much more intuitive.) I want to install a grill guard / winch system but the Sport model bumper interferes with the after market grill guards I've been looking at. So if that's important to you, consider getting one of the other trim lines that has tow hooks on it. Overall, I'm very pleased and would buy the truck again.

the resale value PLUMMETS dealers wanting over $13000 to trade after only 33000 miles. be prepared to take a beating when its trade time. also the knob shifter really stupid design, located next of fan control. its a dumb idea to begin with. have bought dodge brand for over 14 years (new every 2 years with miles left on warranty) now the mileage is OK but don't buy if you are looking at any resale value, it just isn't there. also the seat material is very thin and wears through quickly, Im retired so it doesn't get hard use!! my advice is buy from a competitor, they will hold their value!

First truck owned, very happy with the change

I've always been a car guy but I live in a huge city with crappy roads and even worse drivers and a mediocre public transit system. Sitting up high with a suspension that can handle mute the cracks and bumps is really nice. I like sitting up high and i'm impressed by the outward visibility in my truck even versus my '08 Altima (which also was very good). The fuel economy is less than advertised but still ok for a full-sized truck. I will probably upgrade the intake and exhaust system after a year or so, just to see what difference it makes. The interior is impressive and the infotainment system (UConnect) is really cool, very intuitive to use. The only things I didn't get that I wanted were keyless ignition (I had that on my 8-yr old Altima) and blind spot monitors. Other than that I'm really happy with my purchase and got a great deal on the Lone Star package (almost $10k under MSRP).

I am on my 4th Dodge Ram and they just keep getting better. The outside appearance has not changed much from my 2010 model, but the inside instrumentation is quite different and improved. The 5.7L V8 is significantly more powerful, but mileage appears to be slightly better than what I got in the smaller 4.7L V8 on my 2010.

Loving the Ram, best truck I have had

Smooth, steady, comfortable and great gas mileage. So glad I went with the Ecodiesel model. A better truck than any of the other manufacturers are currently putting out. So glad to be out of a Chevy now. Well done.

Flawed tow and mileage, rear axle ratio

Currently own a '07 Tundra, 5.7L, and am looking to replace. Tundra's come with a 4.30 rear axle, meant for towing, so it has lower fuel mileage. Looking at all other trucks, Ram, Ford, GMC, they come with a 3.21+/- or 3.55+/- rear axle, better mileage, but do offer an optional 3.9+/- ratio for towing heavy. I like the Ram, nice ride, but am hard pressed to find the 5.7L or EcoDiesel with the 3.92 ratio. So, I'm still leaning toward another Tundra, it has a nice ride, that's why we bought it in '07. All these other trucks have great specs, but it's not an apple to apple comparison. Tundra's are built to tow, and probably get the same mileage as any other truck with a similar rear axle. If you're buying a truck to tow, make sure you do the math, the dealer is going to sell you what they have, not what you need.

Have owned the truck for a year now - and remain extremely happy with it. I have done some long trips - and it has been a pleasure to travel in. My only warranty issue was the wheel well flares (Laramie edition) has an issue with the adhesive - and had to be re-applied.

Ram 1500 Laramie 3.6L Gas V-6

Many reviews on this site for either the 5.7 V-8 or the 3.0L diesel. My truck has the 3.6L gas motor. While it is not a sports car I find the power to be good for daily driving and have no issues passing or merging into busy rush hour traffic. The V-6 is quiet and has a nice growl to it when the pedal is pressed to the floor. For the savings ($1200 less than the Hemi plus $1000 additional rebate) I am happy I went with the Pentastar. With the 3.55 rear end I can still tow 7000 pounds and I am getting 20-21 MPG in mostly highway driving. The RAM is the most comfortable full size pickup on the market in my opinion, although I am disappointed in the lack of some safety features like front crash mitigation and blind spot monitoring. The Unconnect system is hands down the best infotainment system on the market including luxury manufacturers.

I was upside down on my trade in. I was told , I need to buy new and no regrets. Truck looks good and ride good. I am happy with my truck. This truck is 5.7 V8 express quad cab. I could not find the box to check it. If it looks good and ride good? It is good.! I test drove an F150 and was no impressed. Ram was much better.

The 2016 Ram Big Horn Crew Cab 3.6L is by far the best bang for your buck! The V6 models are very impressive on both power and fuel economy. Having owned 3 Dodge trucks prior to this recent purchase I was doubtful that the V6 model would be anything close to the mega cab hemi it was replacing. I remained open minded while shopping for this truck and decided to test drive the V6 model. Boy am I glad I drove this thing! The 3.55 gears with the towing package really utilize the engine power and that wonderful 8 speed transmission is smooth as butter. Fuel mileage is above what the window sticker claimed in city and highway driving. All aspects of this truck have been outstanding. The 8 inch touchscreen controls is a must have as well. If your in the market for a new truck, do yourself a favor and test drive one of these....you and your wallet will be amazed!! I must admit, this truck makes me enjoy driving all over again!

great truck

if you are looking for more bang for the buck, then you really dont have to look any further than the ram 1500. ive done my research and shopping and you by far get more with the 2016 ram 1500. ford wont even try and match it. (and they are looking to get rid of the v8 engine by the way). although chevy will try and match the pricing (did my research with that too), they still dont give you the dual exhaust. i test drove the ford f150 and the chevy silverado and the ram 1500 beats them both. fords interior is nice. chevys interior is nice. but again, the ram 1500 interior is more luxurious. besides the fact that you also get a free 1 year subscription with sirius satellite radio with dodge. chevy and ford were only 6 months. and about that horsepower.......395 hp with the ram. chevy and ford dont give you that much. the passenger seating in the back is also very comfortable with the ram, and more comfortable than the chevy. you get alot more for your money with the ram 1500. this is my second ram 1500 lease and i am very satisfied with this truck. so satisfied that i just might be it outright at the end of the lease. for the life of me, i really dont know why anyone would want any other truck.

Dealer and fca couldn't find the problem with check engine light, just guessing on changing parts, they had the truck for 4.5 months, finally got them to buy it back, had a very hard time with them for 9 months 100's of papers and a thousand of phn calls. Never dodge again even if they gave me the best dodge for free I'll not take it. Bad vehicles in anyway u look at. Don't recommend. ..end

This is a wonderful truck. Improvements in the entry area could be made for the taller person, I am 6'2". The height of the door could be 2 inches higher to accommodate this. On the same token the seats could be an inch or so deeper for the same reason. This truck drives and rides amazing. The engine is quiet and responsive as is the steering. I have not had the vehicle long enough for any repairs and it has not been back to the dealer in the first 6 weeks for any issues.

This review is for a 2016 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn 4 wheel drive crew cab with the 5'6" bed with the 3.6 liter turbo diesel motor. This is my 3rd Ram truck in the past 10 years and easily my favorite of the bunch. I live in Texas and I like driving a truck. In the past I have had difficulty justifying the purchase price and the poor fuel economy because I really don't NEED a truck that often. It is useful to have a truck sometime but I don't need one on a regular basis. I do occasionally pull a trailer that is around 5000lbs but I only use it 4-5 times a year. My 2013 Ram 1500 with a Hemi pulled the trailer easily but mileage took a nosedive into the single digits. With the Italian built 3.0 liter diesel my new Ram gets 17+ mpg doing the same job. Overall without the trailer I am getting 25-26 mpg in mixed driving. This is just amazing for a 6000 pound 4 wheel drive truck. It seems that with the EcoDiesel you can have your cake and eat it too. In my case that means I can use a big heavy truck as my daily driver and still get fuel economy that is solidly in the 20s. In highway driving it is possible to aver 30-31mpg as long as you stay below 70mph. You can probably tell that I am a fan of the V6 diesel option in the Ram. So what is the downside? Initial cost is one issue. The diesel is a premium over the gas V6 or even the Hemi V8. Maintenance cost is also higher. Oil changes happen at 8000 miles for the diesel versus 10,000 for the gas motors. If you want to DIY the oil changes you'll find that the filter runs about $50 and the sump holds 11.5 quarts of synthetic oil. You'll also need to replenish the 8 gallon DEF tank every 9-10,000 miles. The fuel filter also needs to be changed every 20,000 miles or so. So if you're considering the Ram EcoDiesel purely to save money then you might want to do the math first. It will take quite a few gallons of low sulphur diesel to offset the additional costs associated with the diesel. If you can make the equation work out in favor of the diesel I think you will enjoy the ride. The range is usually well over 500 miles from the 26 gallon tank. It's not as punchy off the line as the hemi (I haven't driven the gas V6) but doesn't feel slow either. There is some definite turbo induced lag from a dead stop but once underway there is no trace of lag and you feel like you're riding a wave of torque. In normal driving the truck feels plenty quick. In full throttle runs it runs out of breath sooner than the hemi. If you don't do a lot of full throttle sprints the diesel will feel as quick or quicker than the V8. Part of the credit for the seamless torque from the EcoDiesel goes to the 8 speed auto transmission. Shifts are smooth and quiet. I have yet to catch it hunting for the right gear. The rotary dash mounted shifter takes some getting used to. After 3 weeks and 1300 miles I don't notice it much anymore. Compared to my 2013 Ram this frees up a lot of space on the console. The Ram 1500 has coil springs at all 4 corners and the ride benefits from this. The truck handles well given it's size. I am amazed by how large half-ton trucks have gotten these days. I think the interior of this truck is something special. I looked far and wide to find a truck with the black/cattle tan interior. It has various wood trim panels that are actually made of real wood. I know that wood trim in a truck sounds silly but I think it looks great. My truck does have heated front and rear seats along with a heated steering wheel. I have really appreciated that the last few days with the temps near freezing here in Central Texas. The front seats are ventilated but I haven't really used those as I bought the truck in December. The crew cab has a really roomy back seat though my son has complained that the seat backs are too upright for him. The rear seat folds up and there are foldout panels underneath to give a flat load floor. There is some storage under the seats but on my truck much of that space is taken up by the subwoofer that comes with the Alpine sound system. Sound quality is better than the base system but seems a bit harsh to me. The UConnect system with 8.4 inch screen works great. I would love to see Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration but the Garmin based nav works well as does the bluetooth. It works nicely with my iPod touch and my son's iPhone. Messaging works well with my Galaxy Note 5. I love the Sirius TravelLink with weather (reports and radar) and traffic. Driving through Dallas the day after Christmas it warned me of tornadoes and at one point gave me a message that there was a tornado reported in my location. My son looked up and we were directly under a large funnel cloud. The ParkSense system and rear camera are a must IMO. You can probably tell that I love this truck. It was not cheap with an msrp of $56,184 and only time will tell how the EcoDiesel holds up. Go drive one and see for yourself.

Much Better Truck than my Old Tradesman

Mostly my comparison is to the 2012 Trades I had before purchasing the Sport. I saw this blacked out optioned truck on the lot and fell in love with it. It looks great and I get lots of compliments! The bucket seats are far more comfortable than in the Tradesman. Acceleration off the line isn’t as good due to the higher gearing in this specific Sport. The new 8 speed tranny is so much better than the old 6 speed. Very smooth shifting, very little of it trying to find the right gear. The 6 speed in the Tradesman was always clunking around, always looking for the right gear to be in. I didn’t like the way it shifted from the beginning and did have to take it in at 65K to have transmission work on it. I was really nervous about the warranty running out and having to pay for a new tranny. But I got the lifetime power train warranty on the new truck which was the primary reason for going back to the Ram. Gas mileage has been in the 17-18 MPG range. Although I live in a hilly area I still can't imagine getting 21 MPG. The Uconnect system can be a little distracting. The high beams are awesome. The truck came with a big subwoofer that sits under the passenger side rear seat and takes up 2/3rds of the rear under seat storage. With 700 miles on it I am loving it! Update: I now have 10,500 miles on the truck and still like it although the tranny isn't as smooth as in the beginning. When coasting and getting back on the gas it has a little trouble finding the gear it wants to be in. I am missing the extra space I had in my old extended cab compared to this Quad cab. I still have not been able to get more than 19 mpg (only once) and generally still in the 17-18 range. The air conditioned seats are "ok". Not great. Not worth the extra money.
