If you haven't driven a ram, it is time you did. Treat yourself.

The RAM 1500 big horn is the nicest truck I have owned. It is equipped with the 5. 7 hemi and 4 wheel drive. It floats down the road like a luxury vehicle and has plenty of torque and horsepower. The crew cab is especially nice for comfortable passenger capacity with plenty of legroom and storage under the rear seats. It handles well in all weather conditions and has a ride height that provides a great point of view in traffic. Very safe. And nothing beats a pick up truck when it comes to moving, anything from raw materials for construction or furniture for family and friends. And believe me, if you own a pick up, you'll be the first person people call to help them move. overall, it is a safe, dependable, comfortable, powerful vehicle and I couldn't be happier and I highly recommend it. Guts. Glory. Ram.

Good everyday driver, that is easy to load up for a weekend fishing trip.

Good reliable vehicle. Has four wheel drive makes it nice 4 refer to rain and getting around in the snow. Pulls a boat or a small camper very easily. Average gas mileage very low maintenance. Plenty of room for either 4 grown adults or two adults and two children. Also the back seat is great for our two dogs. I would prefer to have little more in cab storage and the electric seats but our vehicle did not come with these options. The CD player is located under the center seat in the front & only loads one CD at a time. Rear is would have been a great option we did not get.

The 2014 Dodge Ram is an amazing vehicle with tons of options.

I love my truck. It has been reliable and overall a great vehicle. 4 wheel drive in the snow works perfect and no issues. It can tow and haul anything needed. Tons of room for car seats and lots of storage. The touch screen display is amazing. It has a backup camera with a great picture and can tell you exactly where you are backing up too. The sensors on the front and back of the truck make sure you can get close enough but ensures that you do not hit anything. It is also equipped with satellite radio which is a huge convenience to be able to have access to.
