I had my truck for only 11 months. The motor was solid but the electronics were garbage as far as I'm concerned. full 2012 Ram 1500 review

Now my family builds dodge so it hurts me to say this truck was a big disappointment. I had my truck for only 11 months. This truck was put in the shop so many time for the same things I was reluctant to even consider another Chrysler product. My ignition switch constantly stopped working in the cold months. My transmission had repair work twice (something about a pump) before being fully replaced with a brand new one. My doors made horrid squeaking while being opened or closed. The motor on the other hand was solid but the electronics were garbage as far as I'm concerned. full 2012 Ram 1500 review

Amazing getting 16-18 mpg around town and 19-21 mpg on the highway is unheard of in a V8 truck this big full 2014 Ram 1500 review

I use to own the v6 and I can honestly say that the Hemi get much better fuel mileage because its not trying to lug around the huge chassis and body. My V6 would avg about Mabye 13 MPG while my Hemi can get about 18 to 24 on good days sometimes even better. full 2012 Ram 1500 review
