A good truck for the money; a tough vehicle with a strong diesel engine that performs very well on and off the highway. I am getting an average of 19 MPG on the highway, which is very good, however, the cost of fuel remains high due to the price of diesel fuel. Everything works on the truck as it should, except that the RPM drops when the vehicle is shifted from D to R; not sure why but I am told by the dealer that this is normal. Overall, I like the truck.
Everything in it is well thought out and details matter. There are a few little things that you would expect in a truck at the highest trim level. For example, power folding mirrors. This truck has wide mirrors for towing and it would be nice to fit into a parking spot and fold the side mirrors with the push of a button. Similarly, front parking sensors and mud flaps would be appreciated. These are options that don't cost a lot more but should be standard features for the top of the line Longhorn Laramie Ram.
We bought a 2006 2500 4 Door Quad Cab with 4WD Auto and the Cummins Diesel from Carmax with 46K miles. The truck looks great and runs very well. Fuel mileage in the 18's with the diesel is nice. Pulls and handles loads just fine. With proper care the truck should last well into the 250K mile range. I like the truck, the seats are a bit thin for me - I'm 6'2" and 230 lbs, my son thinks they are fine. The interior quality of the Dodge Truck Product is not the same level as the Ford Truck Product. I have a 2001 F250 Diesel with 150K that the interior is excellent in, I have noticed some seat fabric wear already in the Dodge. However it is a minor issue and seat covers are inexpensive. The Dodge 2500 with the Cummins diesel pre 2007 before the emissions gear hammered the fuel mileage is a great value.
