You'll Like The 2011 Ram 1500 If...

If you like the rugged image of a tough-as-nails working truck, but not the harsh ride or crude interior that accompanies it, check out the 2011 Ram 1500. Its "big-rig" inspired styling is mighty impressive, as is its available Hemi V8 engine.

Big blue Ram is the best!

Our Ram 1500 is the best! We purchased it pre-owned with 32, 000 miles and she now has 160, 000 plus and still drives like new and turns heads wherever we go! For a truck, it is exceptionally roomie and comfortable. We have the eco-friendly v-8 which gets great highway mileage and decent around town. Wouldn't trade this truck for anything!

Ram - easy in and out for older passengers.

I have a total knee replacement. The overhead handle that helps me get into the car is located so that it easy for me to get into the truck. There sufficient room for my legs on the passenger side. The engine is still strong after 150, 000 miles, there is enough room for my husband to work on the engine.

- Ellen F

Dodge RAM 1500 outdoorsman edition is the best truck you will ever buy.

Most reliable and smooth drive you will ever have. Great looks with lots of compliments. 4x4 easily engaged and will not let you down. Dodge RAM trucks are by far the best truck to get any job done. I love the fact that my outdoorsman edition came completely loaded just the way that I wanted it.
