2014 Big Horn 4WD 3.92 gear 6.4 bed used commercially. I've got 217,500 on mine most of the miles have an Airstream, TT, boat, cargo trailer in tow sometimes with a Harley or other cargo to deliver in the bed. Repairs have been a light switch & an alignment both at 196,000. The engine is quiet & smooth as is the 8 speed transmission. At 65 mph unloaded it averages 30 mpg. Towing a typical 26' Airstream TT from Ohio to the west coast at 65 nets between 15.0 & 17.0 mpg depending upon headwind. Its an efficient & comfortable long distance commuter or moderate weight tower. The quiet smooth ride is more road compliant and handles better than any other truck but is too soft under a load without either the factory air suspension or supplementation from one of the aftermarket axle to frame air bag companies. (TLC, Timber Grove, Air Lift) Mine benefits from an aftermarket tune with an engine brake for safely descending grades with a trailer. Still have original brakes. Truck also has optional trailer brake controller. Tune also provided some power and mileage and minimalized re circulation of EGR soot. Never had any emissions problems. The 1500 platform as well as the motor has its limitations if you plan to tow 9,000 pounds or 33+ foot TT you would be better served by a HD. Short of that its a great truck and I would buy another one.
Wanted this model in eco diesel
Didn't want to spend $7000 more. That is a lot of money up front for an extra 4 mpg.

This is the second NEW ram truck we have owned. The first was a 2011 4x4 crew cab that we loved but was part of the huge recall where the back ends need replaced, which really put a bad taste in our mouth since we had been driving this truck pulling campers and boats for many years with children on trips, knowing they should have recalled this years ago and knowing we weren't "safe" was a bad feeling. Dealership said it would be 8-10 weeks without our truck to repair, really?? So we traded it in! Bought a new 2015 4x4 big horn with the longer bed, love it!! But each time we started it up a big cloud of white smoke blew out the tale pipes. We contacted salesman, who said to put first 1000 miles on it and if it's still did it to bring it in. At 5,000 miles husband does first oil change and only 2 quarts of oil comes out (it holds 7 quarts)!!! We take it to dealership explain this, they hook it up and say "it has to be water vapor, nothing's wrong with truck". We continue to drive it, we are adding a quart of oil every 1000-1500 miles! That's a lot of oil this truck is burning!! We now have 10,000 miles and decide they are going to figure this out. We take it in to dealer, nothing leaking oil outside engine so they mark the oil level and tell us to drive it 1,000 miles and bring it back in so they can "document how much it's burning then send a request to Chrysler dodge fiat to see if they will allow them to replace or repair engine". So now we play their game... I think it's ridiculous! We pay $45,000 for a brand new truck that burns oil like a 20 year old truck?!?! Just to be told they may or may not fix the problem... As much as we have loved our 2 ram trucks, if they don't fix this under warranty, it will be the last dodge Chrysler anything we own!!!!
14000 on my 2014 Express 5.7L
This truck is really nice . . . . color is Blue Streak Pearl Coat . . . . I get comments on it all the time. This truck had the upgraded UConnect 5.0 . . . it is much nicer than anything else I have had. I am 6'3"" and I really love the size - super comfortable seats. They are the gray cloth. Cabin is really comfy. I call this truck the 400 HP Barcalounger Engine - So far so good . . .14 MPG around town I have seen to 23 MPG highway. I have seen haters call the hemi "gutless", but I cannot figure out what they are talking about. The engine is a runner, pulls solid off the bottom, but seems to come on to the cam at about 3500 - 4000 rpm. It is fun to drive. I have done some towing (mulch) . . . . put her in Tow/Haul mode. It did not complain any. Tranny - Got the 8 speed. I was a little wigged about no dipstick. But this is apparently a high end tranny. I guess i will worry about it when I need to. I would like to do a fluid change at 50K. We'll see. For now, it is the smoothest tranny I have ever seen. Lightning shifts, almost imperceptible. Almost magic. You CAN catch engine and tranny napping at times. Engine in MDS ECO mode, tranny in OD then when you step on the gas it has to wake up. I guess this is how it gets 22+ mpg highway. Issues up to now - One day the shifter locked. It cleared up on it own. Also, the 3rd brake light on the cab was leaking some. I got weather stripping and fixed that myself. If this truck does not turn to a pumpkin, I'll probably hold onto it until I trade it in for a Buick Regal (probably when I am 85)

First off, I had a Lemon. Took it to the dealer 3 times for steering vibrations that could not be resolved. Dealer was a pain in the behind but FCA was great to deal with. They bought the truck back. I didn't even ask for it. 2nd Ram is great! Going on 26000 miles and it's solid. Only have been back to the dealer for small things. Like uconnect updates. It rides like a car, plenty if power. Consistently 21+ mpg on highway. Very comfortable seats. My conclusion. Very well designed truck. Prolly the best of all truck brands. I'm not brand loyal either. I go with the best product. However, the unions are what plagues these truck companies. Unions should be busted up. That's why reliability is hit and miss. These guys might be pissed off at management one week and put together a string of sloppily made trucks. I've been part of a union and they aren't good for the auto industry. Update: this Ram has 37k miles on it and it is one solid truck! I love it. No squeaks or rattles, and very reliable.

I have owned this truck for just about 8 months now and felt I could give it a proper assessment. Zero issues to report. I have the 5.7 with the 3.92 gears and 8spd trans. I have averaged just around 16mpg in mixed driving conditions. While towing a 7,000 lb camper (which this truck does effortlessly) I average around 11 mpg. Two of my favorite options are the ramboxes (storage compartments accessible from the outside of the bed that utilize the space above the wheel wells without compromising bed capacity (still able to load 4x8 sheets of plywood and drywall no problem)). My second is the adjustable air suspension which can lower to allow ease of entry and raise to an off-road dedicated 10+" clearance height. Interior - spacious and comfortable in both front and back seats. There is so much leg room in the quad cab rear seats this truck easily carries linebackers in the back in absolute comfort. The instrument cluster is programmable as to which display you want to see in the center and what data to appear on the corners of the digital display and is intelligently flanked by the large rpm gauge and speedometer. This is truly the most comfortable vehicle I have ever ridden in. Storage is ample and everywhere. under back seats, storage wells in floor boards, behind back seats, door pockets, seat pockets, center console, dual glove compartments...The ram boxes are extremely useful and allow larger tools, hunting gear to be stored and locked in sync with the remote, or through a couple bags of ice and a case of your favorite beverage and you are the tailgate king. Included as part of the Rambox package is a ram embossed heavy duty plastic bed divider which also serves as a tailgate extender as well as a Ram embossed tonneau cover which folds into thirds to allow tall items in the bed and easily folds back into place to cover the bed. Performance- The 395 HP Hemi is amazing. It really is a fast truck when you get up on it, but rides with the comfort of a luxury sedan. The exhaust note sounds deep and throaty when starting or accelerating and just loud enough to sound impressive without be obnoxious. Even with the 33" Off-Road toyo tires included as part of the rebel package you would never know it from the inside of the cabin. Lots of people complain about the shift knob, but I actually like it. It frees up a lot of space in the center console area where a center shifter may go. It's beefy and easy to use and you will never mistake it for the radio volume knob. Also get the 8.4AN stereo option (9 speaker Alpine system with a subwoofer) the nav is meh, good compared to other vehicles, but with iphone apps such as waze and google maps. The stereo sounds fantastatic and never feels strained when cranked up to 11 on the volume know ( you know, 10 and One). I always love driving this truck. I get many compliments and although it's not the cheapest transport option out there, The Ram's are very competitively priced and I was able to get mine at 8,000 below sticker.
Best truck ever
I recently bought a 2015 RAM 1500 SLT, and cannot be happier to own and drive this truck. Aggresive look, engine is strong, but drives so smooth, interior is made of quality materials and awesome MPG! Hope it will last for a long time, before I consider getting another replacement. Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

Not our first Ram. Had the hemi last round and loved it other than the cheap street tires they use. This one tho, seriously? The shifter is a knob on the dash? Horrible! Hate it. Its a truck, a truck needs a shifter. Also the rear temp controls are bad design. Again... Horrible choice of rubber for a truck tire. All in all space wise, looks , reliabilty are good. But that dash shifter? Godawful.

I bought my 2014 Dodge Ecodiesel for the fuel economy and roominess it offered. I will say that my ram 1500 quadcab does ride well and gets great fuel economy in the summer. I average 24 mpg and have seen as high as 30 on the highway. Winter time those numbers drop 3-4 mpg here in NJ. The problem with this truck is it has proven to be very Unreliable. Before its first year anniversary it spent 39 days at the dealer for repairs. An electrical meltdown best describes the issues. They used trial and error and replaced lots of parts, each time waiting several days for new parts to come in. The dealer service is the pits. I swapped dealers last week and more of the same. AC, cruise control and a starting issue are still being addressed. More parts ordered and more time at the dealer. I will be shopping for a replacement very soon. Buyer beware ! I'm at 42000 miles and tried to trade the RAM in on a Tundra, however the word is out on the ECO diesel and now resale is very poor and this is for a truck that commands a premium dollar for the diesel option. Looks like I'm stuck with it till the 5 year/100000 mile warranty runs out.
2015 Ram Bighorn Ecodiesel Review
Just passed 8,000 on my Ecodiesel, and so far I am very impressed with this truck. The truck is exciting to drive with seemingly endless torque and plenty of horsepower combined with amazing fuel economy and luxury. I've had no major issues; this is the 2nd Ram truck I've owned and been very happy with both of them. I would recommend the Ecodiesel without hesitation. With the Ecodiesel being a newer platform for Ram, I hope my satisfaction continues and this proves to be a smart and worthwhile purchase. As of now, I will say it has been the best all around vehicle I have owned.
Engine disintegrated at 15,000 miles.

I was in love with this truck. It had everything I need in a truck: great ride, towing, and fuel efficiency. All was great until I was driving home from an out-of-state trip. About 200 miles from home, in the middle of nowhere, my engine died on the interstate while I was do about 65. Fortunately, I pulled over safely and contacted roadside assistance. It was a Saturday. Their solution, as per their contract, was to tow me to the nearest dealer, in a small town. The dealership was already closed for the day and would be closed on Sunday. I had to be at work on Monday, so this wasn't an option for me. Fiat Chrylser America couldn't help me; their "roadside assistance" was to leave me stranded in a small down for days. I had to pay out-of-pocket myself for my Ram to be towed home so I could at least go to work. It turned out to that the resonator blew. The local dealership held it for several days and returned it to me repaired. Two weeks later, my "low oil pressure light came on." I dropped it off at the dealership and after a day or two they called me back and told me there was metal in the oil pain. The engine disintegrated and I was told it would be replaced under warranty. Today is day #30 without a truck. I have opened a case with Fiat Chrylser America and have talked to their customer-service representative once. She was very nice, but unfortunately I haven't received an update in about 10 days. Overall, I regret purchasing this truck. I've spoke with other Ecodiesel owners on Ram forums and it seems I'm not alone when it comes to dead engines and difficulties with Fiat Chrylser America. I will happily update this review if a happy-ending
my ram has really grown on me!

I love the 32 gallon fuel tank and the ride quality. I am also pleased with the almost 20 mpg in mixed driving, as long as you don't have a heavy foot. I'm not fond of the black leather interior, as it shows the dirt and it would be nice if they had the 6'6" bed like everyone else

I can't start to explain how disappointed I am with Ram. I bought a new 2015 Ram 2500 diesel 1 year ago. I have had it in the shop almost 100 days total and 35 days 1 time alone until I had to pick it up to tow my trailer. The problems are from the window regulator, stereo, tire pressure monitoring system, transmission will not shift correct and finally just wouldn't start today and left me stranded. The brakes don't work and they found an internal leak but issue still isn't fixed. All issues are verified but none have been fixed. Some people at ram have been nice while others want to make it nothing but hard for me to get any thing done about it. Finally after my case manager told me "there's nothing we can do about it and if You want a different outcome to seek arbitration" I did open a case with NDCS and turned in my evidence for arbitration and they left out my main letter and told me it's too late to do anything about it now. They also held the meeting in Texas when I live in Arizona and wouldn't tell me where if I wanted to attend. At that point it was a one sided argument besides my service records. Arbitration awarded me a new truck but after going to the dealership today and picked out a new truck. I would have to get a new loan, my down payment and monthly payments I made would be erased and my loan will be for more than the original. 0 compensation and told me I will have to swap all my after market parts like leveling kit, wheels/tires, amp power steps, remote start, bed tow prep package, and aftermarket tint. It has been the worst experience I have ever dealt with and not the experience I expected when buying my first brand new truck. Everyone from Ram points fingers to others and no one can help or point me in the right direction. I have been waiting for a call from Ram directly to se what we can do again but it's been over a month after they told me 1-3 days twice In a row and erased my case. After calling in and finding out it was erased I had to re open one and start over. Ram customer service SUCKS

Went from 2010 F150 to 2013 Ram with Hemi, to this 2015 Ram 1500 with Eco Diesel. Been happy with Ram, fuel economy on the Eco Diesel is good (21 city, 25 hwy) but the Hemi was more fun! My experience with Dodge / Ram / Jeep has been good over the years, from 1995 to now between my wife and I having Ford, Mercury, Chevy, and several Dodge / Ram products and my wife now has a 2014 Grand Cherokee. We have had just as many problems with other brands (fuel problems in 2010 F150, bearing went of rear diff in 2007 Tahoe) and have no complaints on CDJR products. Love the quiet of the diesel in my 2015 Ram, and the 8 speed transmission in the 2013 and the 2015 are the best transmission I have ever driven. They could have a little better quality of the plastic on the glove box, and I miss my glasses case in the roof of my Ford, but overall been very satisfied.

The crew cab proves to provide plenty of room for a family of 4. I drive a lot of miles and wasn't sure I should get the hemi or the v6. The v6 proves to get great mpg at 20/25 on a full size truck and power is not a problem pushing 305 hp it does the job. Quite cab and lots of comfort. The only thing that upset me was the $800 charge they wanted to charge me for the navigation download so I use my garmen gps that I paid $100 for and get free updates for life. Come on ram give the navigation with the truck. I do love my ram truck though.

I have been Chevrolets and Fords for over 25 years. This is my first Dodge primarily due to my fathers advice that Dodge's have great power trains, but horrible everything else. Times have changed, at least with respect to the "everything else". Keep in mind, I have only had this truck for a month and only have 3,500 miles on it, however, here are my first impressions. This truck (Ram 1500 SLT Crew Cab with Big Horn package, Hemi engine, 3.93 rear diff) runs like a scalded cat. The ride is not like a Lincoln Towncar... it is a truck, I would hope not, but it is very smooth and quiet. The advertised 15mpg city / 20mpg highway is a pipe dream, but I suspect the rear differential may have something to do with that. On the positive side, I am getting about 16.5 mpg highway while driving 80mph through the Texas hill country. City driving is about 14.5 mpg so not that much worse than advertised. The turn knob shifter took some getting used to, but I appreciate the space recovered from where the shifter would traditionally be. My only complaint is that some of the A/C controls (changing from dash vents to floor vents, etc) must be done via the touch screen. Overall, I love this truck.

It's a Chrysler, so reliability is poor. I trade premium pickups every two years and prior to this MoPar I had a Ford F-250 and two GMC 2500 HD's before that. First the Ecodiesel and 8 speed transmission are awesome. My actual fuel mileage is what Ram says it should be. Other than expensive oil changes and fuel filter replacements required every 15,000 miles, I have no complaints as to the drive train. The product as a whole irritates me often. With the last 3 pickups over the past 7 years I've never had an issue with recalls or repairs with the GMC's or Fords (not counting that piece of crap 6.0 Powerstroke Ford built 4 vehicles ago) but the recalls and breakdowns of this Chrysler irritate me. A sensor took 5 days to repair and resulted in the Ram being hauled from my home on a truck. Ram refused to take it to the dealer where I bought it and stuck me with a local village idiot. I drove 50 miles to avoid the local dealer and buy the truck because the local dealer is the village idiot, Ram can't haul a $54K pickup an extra 50 miles? Now, the real reason for me going to the trouble to write a review about a truck that is actually pretty nice. The navigation.... map updates are $150!!! Are you kidding me? I can buy a Garmin and stick it on the windshield with free lifetime updates for a little more than $150 and the Ram radio that is an extra $1000 for navigation costs me $150 to update? Unbelievable. Stick it to me Chrysler, see if I come back. There are other really nice pickups out there. I'll probably have one of those others next time.

I have had several Dodge/RAM, Chevy/GMC and Ford 1500 pickup trucks over the last 20 years. My last truck was a 2012 RAM Hemi Crew Cab 4wd. That had a 6 speed auto transmission. The new one has an 8 speed. This is the best transmission ever invented. I have had about 70 vehicles in my lifetime and I cannot impress upon this feature enough. Not only do I average 20-22MPG in mixed driving (I don't floor the hemi very often), but this transmission seems to read my mind. It is always in the right gear. I love the looks, the seats, the comfort of independent suspension, the UCONNECT and many other things about this RAM...but the 8 speed automatic is outstanding! When you can get 20-22mpg in a 4WD crew cab with 400HP, you are doing something AMAZING. My sister bought the same vehicle with a few more bells and whistles and she has hit 24mpg on the highway. Love this truck!
I purchased my Ram 1500 Lonestar in April 2015. I love my ram! It rides smooth and it is very quite. I have only had it for 5 months so I will update more later.

Everything quits working from time to time and ram won't help
So far...I really like it!
I bought a new 2015 Laramie 1500 4x4 in June. So far it has met and even exceeded most of my expectations. I traded in my beloved 2006 Toyota Tundra 4x4, however I didn't know what I was missing. The Laramie, for being a good sized truck drives extremely easy...its crazy. The interior is well designed and easy to use. The Uconnect system is one of the easiest systems I have ever used. Everything from the GPS, Bluetooth, air conditioned/heated seats and setting up internet in the truck is simple. The Alpine system puts out incredible sound and the speakers in the ceiling is just cool in my opinion. The 5.7 Hemi, 8 speed transmission w/ 321 gears...is also one of my favorite features. The truck has a lot of power! I have averaged from day one--17 MPG. I have seen as high as 22.7 on the highway and as low as 14 pulling my boat. My Toyota never saw over 19 MPG and it's 800 lbs lighter and had 125 less HP. So I am very happy with the Laramie's mileage. Hopefully as it breaks in even more, I will see a little higher MPG. But, fair warning...the motor puts out 495 hp. If your heavy in the gas, your mileage will suffer. I have experienced that when my wife drives haha. The only item I have had trouble with in the keyless key FOB. On occasion, I have had my key FOB on me while I'm in the truck...but the truck didn't pick it up, which meant the truck wouldn't start. My truck starts with a push button, not an actual key. So I had to get out of the truck, lock and unlock it, then I got back in and it started. Yes, that will irritate you. That's my only complaint. I am experimenting with a KN filter right now, to see if it helps or hurts my mileage. I will post later what my results are. I have heard it both ways 1) that it helped 2) that it hurt your mileage. So after a few road trips using both (stock filter or KN)...I will have some actual data to share. My truck is a Cowboy Cadallic. Dodge really did it right this time. I am extremely pleased with it...
Poor in gas mileage

I had a 2014 chevy silverado 1500 with 27 Gallons and the average in gas was 17MPG and I just purchased a Laramie Longhord edition 1500 with 32 Gallons and the average is 11.6 MPG. I drive my laramie normally without speeding but I was very upset about the mileage. According to Dodge is 15 City/20 Highway. Everything else is very nice and comfortable.

I traded in my 2008 ram 1500 5.7l Hemi SLT for a new 2015 Ram 1500 Reg Cab W/Hemi. I bought the Black express package, emblems painted body color, delete Hemi badging, SL model. I have almost 4k miles on the truck and no issue's so far. Only small problem I have is with the door's staying open. The lower hinge's have shallow grooves and on my slanted driveway I have to make sure to hold the door at the second groove (all the way open) or else the door will slam shut if this is not done. My wife and I feel this is a saftey issue and I am not sure if all door hinges on the Ram truck's are made this way. I will follow-up on this issue with the dealer. Other than that I really like my 2015 Ram,

I have the '15 Reg Cab Ram 1500 V6 Black/out Edition. My Ram was affordable. Also, I love the mileage and the overall look. It just has issues very early on. I have owned the truck since Feb '15 and have 5k miles. My first problem I had was at 400 miles after my radio just stopped working for about 2 days. After 2 days it luckily started working, well kind of. Next after around 600 miles my front bumper has blemished paint spots that look like the sun "burnt" this area. My truck is regularly kept under a car port and washed/waxed w/ quality product. Oh & my Bluetooth doesn't work anymore and Pandora capability is a joke!
Only 2000 miles with issues already

Been a "loyal customer at Arrigo" Had a 1500 single cub for 1 year, traded for another 1500 crew cab, because the single cab dies 100% twuice driving on the freeway, Dealer had the truck for three days, got it back, then It dies again. Make the brilliant idea and get the crew cab 2015 for one week,notice a weird noise, took it back to the dealer, they need to replace a part, that I don't even know, for my surprise they don't have it.Back order. It might take up to 10 days. Their response ,,,don't worry you can drive it like that. Only 5 days with the truck.UNBELIEVABLE
THE Best Truck on the Market Today - Bar None!!!
I ordered my 2015 Ram 1500 Laramie, 4x4, quad cab with the V6 Pentastar motor and I have had it since February 2015. I have air suspension, Ram boxes, convenience package, sunroof, skid plates, navigation and 3.55 gears in the rear axle. I love this truck! I did a ton of research on all truck brands and it came down to this truck or the 2015 F150 with the 2.7L V6. In my opinion the configuration of this truck - the V6 Pentastar with 3.55 gears, and 4x4. Is the best drive train on the market. With 4,600 miles on the truck I am averaging 32 MPH and 19.6 miles to the gallon!!!

I purchased a 2015 Ram 1500 quad cab 9 weeks ago it has 1800 miles and its rusting already on the body. Dealer nor Chrysler will do anything about it. I have started a website showing the rust on mine and photos and videos of several trucks on there car lot that have rust and flaking paint problems on the rocker pinch weld. Its a shame because other than that I love the truck. I do not like the way the dealer and Chrysler have shrugged it off when its clearly a manufacturing flaw. [HTML removed]

Recently bought a 2015 Ram 1500 crew cab with a V6. I ordered it especially with everything I wanted and did not want. This truck with the V6 is powerful with outstanding gas mileage. Added a step to truck bed access and lights for the bed. Outstanding truck! Mercedes interior with a truck bed.
