2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Overview

The Dodge Ram was first released in 1981 but has seen a great deal of changes and upgrades over the decades. Now in its fourth generation, the 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 meets buyers' demands for a rugged, durable, and powerful truck with a sophisticated design and smooth ride.

2010 Dodge Ram 1500 History

The 2010 Dodge Ram was only the second release in the fourth generation of Dodge Rams, debuting at the North American International Auto Show in 2009. This was also the first year that the Ram took on its own brand name that was legally separated from Dodge, though it is still commonly marketed under Dodge. This was also only the second year that the Ram 1500 was available with a four-door cab option due to high demand. The Dodge Ram 1500 is manufactured in Warren, Michigan, and is available in multiple size options, including:

  • Regular cab with choice between 6'4" or 8' bed
  • Quad cab with four doors and a rear bench
  • Crew cab with added leg room and smaller 5'6" bed

The three trim levels offered include the base ST, midlevel SLT, and upgraded Laramie.

How It Drives

The 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 features an independent coil-spring rear suspension instead of the traditional leaf spring and live axle rear suspension found in models prior to 2009. When it comes to the driving experience, this new setup provides a much smoother and more enjoyable ride - especially when compared to similar full-size pickups on the market. It also boasts greater maneuverability, though it does have a slightly smaller towing capacity and payload as a result. One of the only complaints drivers have had in regard to the ride itself is the perceived lack of steering power.

Used 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Value

Compared to other vehicles in its class, including the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado, the Dodge Ram 1500 really holds its own in terms of value. It is competitive in terms of fuel economy, yet offers a higher maximum towing capacity than most. Its unique suspension, however, does result in a lower maximum payload, which may be a deal-breaker for some. Most 2010 Dodge Ram 1500s on the market today are selling for anywhere from $10,000 to around $20,000, so they have held their value just about as well as you can expect from a pickup truck.

Design & Performance

Compared to other full-size pickups, drivers tend to appreciate the integrated trailer brake controller as well as the oversized mirrors that come standard on the 2010 Dodge Ram; these make hauling a much safer, easier, and more enjoyable experience. The Ram truly has a class-leading design that features:

  • Coil springs for a smoother ride
  • Great handling, even with an empty truck bed
  • Four anti-lock disc brakes

Power lovers will also appreciate the optional Hemi engine available in this model year.

Powertrain & Engine

The 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 features a standard 3.7-liter V6 engine with 210 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque. This standard engine is available in both rear-wheel drive and part-time four-wheel drive.

In addition to the standard engine, upgraded trims enjoy upgraded engine power. Specifically, the four-wheel drive trims include a Magnum 4.7L V8 engine that kicks up 310 horsepower and significantly more torque. Finally, the 5.7L Hemi V8 is the most powerful option offered in the 2010 Dodge Ram 1500; this engine can boost the vehicle from zero to 60 mph in less than eight seconds. This upgraded engine also features variable valve timing, which allows it to run on four cylinders on occasion, and thus helps with fuel economy.

Still, one of the most common complaints about this vehicle is its less-than-impressive fuel economy compared to similar pickups of its time, with an average of just 20 mpg highway for its most fuel-efficient model.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

Drivers appreciate the aggressive yet sleek body style of the Dodge Ram 1500, though there are a few notable differences among trim levels. For example, the base ST trim level features basic 17-inch wheels, whereas the mid- and upper-level trims upgrade to larger aluminum and chrome options.

In terms of the Dodge Ram 1500's interior, the design itself is plush and inviting, offering greater space and comfort than its Ford and Chevy counterparts. Some interior features include:

  • MP3-capable CD stereo
  • Comfortable cloth seating
  • Rear-seat DVD, navigation, and back-up camera (in top trim level)

Depending on your seating and storage needs, this truck is available in both regular cab, quad cab, and mega cab. If you've got more than one or two passengers on a regular basis, the additional foot room with the mega cab may be more than worth the extra cost and small bed space sacrifice.

That F truck is a dime a dozen. If you are looking for a truck that lives up to its name Dodge Ram 1500 is it. Hemi 5.7ltr, Quad Cab, 4X4, monster performance all from the luxury appointed cabin. Not for the faint of heart, one mash on the gas pedal and you'll know what I mean.
