I love that this truck has so many features It�s like a smart car but for trucks

The 2017 Ram 1500 Big Horn is great on gas mileage especially on the freeway. It has had a few recalls but nothing serious. One feature that I love is it will indicate if something needs serviced ie. Change oil tire pressure ext. The two front seats have a multitude of setting to get the best comfort level you need. I love that the backup camera can be used while the truck is in drive so you can check on a load you are hauling along with the tow mirrors. Also if you live in a colder climate, the heated seats, heated steering wheel and general heat will turn on automatically when you start your truck up when it is 35 degrees or lower outside! The censors all around the truck make it so easy to maneuver in small spaces, it has three different distances to let you know how close you are to another object. Overall an incredible vehicle to have!

Great vehicle, 4x4, Flatbed, Bluetooth Stereo, Comfortable, Reliable

There are times where I go and start the car and I will turn the key and the car will not turn over. I would then take the key out and insert it again and the car will turn over. This is the only problem that I am experiencing at the time. This car is comfortable to drive long distances and the bed of the truck provides enough room for tools and equipment when needed. Performance wise this truck is great, with only being a v6 it provides sufficient power and the 4x4 helps when there's snow or gravel surfaces. Other features that I appreciate are the wireless Bluetooth stereo and the multiple USB outlets that provide easy charging for electronic devices. Lastly, I would say that this vehicle is reliable. I have not experienced any major issues and it's been serviced regularly.

2017 Ram—an improvement from the Ram name.

I really do love my truck, but it is almost too basic. No key fob, no floor mats, vinyl interior. None of which are really much of a problem, but some things I dislike nonetheless. I will say there have been some improvements from the 2014 — the electronic shifting knob no longer locks up on me at random times, better headlights, and just an all round smoother running truck. However, I still get recalls quite a bit for its age ( two of which have been a cruise control problem where the vehicle will not stop accelerating and airbags not inflating ) but I have never experienced the issues the recalls are on. It hauls my small horse trailer wonderfully and gets decent gas mileage for daily driving.
