There is no better combination of looks, capable performance, and reliability.

The RAM 1500 is a solid choice in the full size pickup market. Interior quality and space are excellent, especially in crew cab models. They offer space to actually fit 3 full size adults in the rear or easily fit three infant car seats across. Even with larger cab models the bed space is adequate for most family tasks - moderate hauling, luggage, home improvement, etc. Power is more than adequate in v6 trims and fantastic with the optional hemi v8. Gas mileage is as expected for this class generally in the mid teens. Towing and hauling capabilities more than make up for the fuel expenditures. Reliability is good, particularly drivetrain. Some rust issues have been identified in this generation, particularly in vehicles more than 5 years old. Rust will often invade the rear quarter panel area if not kept clean. All in all a great full size truck for generally less than comparable Chevrolet or Ford offerings.

Amazing truck wouldn't buy any other brand.

I have no issues at all drive it almost 120 miles daily and it is required minimal to no maintenance. It isn't the most fuel efficient truck but as far as power and towing it is amazing. It has hauled and towed anything I have thrown at it. This truck has done everything I have asked of it and has had plenty more to give. Love this truck and when it is tired and had no more left I will not hesitate to trade it in and get another one. I will never buy another truck except for a ram. It is my 7th now and I am a lifetime buyer.

Love my RAM Laramie edition.

I bought my 2011 RAM 1500 Laramie used with 86000 miles, and I couldn't be happier with it. I have had it for 8 months and I drive it daily. It is comfortable, and low maintenance. I go through a tank of gas about every 4-5 days and average about 14 miles per gallon. I had always driven sedans before this, so I really love sitting higher up and being able to see better, plus the hemi engine has as much power as you could ever need.
