2011 Dodge Ram 1500Michelle Bridges - El Cajon, CA01/16/2016
When I first went in I didn't know if this was the truck I wanted but I knew I wanted a truck. Once I looked around at the truck and SUV level I really liked the truck. It was the color I wanted it had the four doors and it had the lift. Once I drove it I liked it. I was nervous driving it home but excited.
Gas mileage daily driving 22+ MPG. Long trips 25+ MPG consistently when lightly loaded and even managed 29.2 MPG on one long trip. That is insanely good for a truck with 395 HP Hemi. It goes farther one a gallon of gas than either of my old Nissan Frontiers with 4 cylinder engines and 5 speed manuals. But when heavily loaded, the mileage drops to 12.5 MPG pulling a 6500 pound camper through the mountains, which still is good. Plenty of power, very smooth and refined. Excellent ride, very comfortable, and quiet, good room inside for 5 and still comfortable with 6 people on board. So far this truck has been as close to perfect. No problems
Very quiet and comfortable ride. The v6 is a little lacking, but I fully expected it to not be a HEMI.
I drive 50 miles round trip each day to work on the interstate. The v6 sips gas - my primary reason for getting it. The second reason was the price!
