Editor's Overview

Ford may have EcoBoost, but the 2015 Ram 1500 pickup truck proves it can out hustle the F-150 both on the ranch and at the fuel pump. The Ram’s 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine delivers an amazing 28 mpg on the highway, while the Pentastar gasoline V6 touts 25 mpg. Of course, if brute strength tops miserly fuel consumption, you can have your Ram with Hemi V8.

Dodge RAM 1500 review by owner.

We own a RAM 1500 Laramie edition and absolutely love the features of it. The heated and cooling seats, heating steering wheel, touch screen display, and navigation are all things our vehicle is equipped with and we are so happy with them. We also have a camper we pull with the pickup and have never had any issues. We had a long box before this new pickup and I would say the only negative about the pickup we currently have is the lack of space in the bed.

This truck is best in class!

Best vehicle I have ever bought! My RAM sport crew cab is very stylish and functional for my needs. The cab is very spacious and fits our entire family without being on top of each other. The features help make it comfortable and fun to drive. The heated and ventilated seats keep me in the right temperature zone no matter the season. The navigation is spot on and easy to follow. The sound system is excellent. The ride is super smooth. One awesome truck!

Factory issue, but still love my RAM.

Own a 2015 RAM 1500 that I bought brand new end of 2015. Love the vehicle, but it did have a factory front bumper alignment issue that caused paint to rub off the front bumper where it connected to the body of the vehicle. Had the dealership fix this (was under Chrysler warranty) and it has been fine ever since. This issue aside, I would consider purchasing another RAM in the future.
