Great miles per gallon. 38 mpgs.

I got my 2018 RAM 1500 eco diesel and love it. It's a big horn package 4x4. I was a bit nervous at first but it has been getting 23.5 miles per gallon city and 30 to 38 highway. With this truck it's quiet and does not have the diesel smell. It does use blue def but it's inexpensive and makes your exhaust smell almost like soap. I will say this I almost went with the tradesman package but the seats where awful. I suggest the big horn all the way. Better seat seats and more technology. But most of all its mpgs are awesome. May buy another!

Some issues that I have with my 2018 Ram 1500.

No manual on/off switch on the overhead dome light. I am 6'1" tall and weigh 240#. The front seats have no lower lumbar support which causes lower back pain on long drives. This puts you in a "hunch back" position. I had to purchase a lumbar support type pillow to alleviate this issue. I believe this is caused by the over extension of the head rest. The truck "slams" into park when you open the door while backing. Yeah, I do use the mirrors to back up but, I like to open the door to look back on occasion.

- Gl A

It's great for people who need to get places no matter what the weather and road conditions may be. Also perfect for those who make a living doing any sort of manual labor and need to carry their supplies.

Unfortunately my boyfriend was a bit too anxious and antsy to get a new truck so he was unable to get any special features. It is so so roomy and comfortable and it's travels beautifully in the snow, hard rain, and so far any weather conditions I've come across with this truck. I just wish that we waited a little longer ger to get the truck so that we could afford even simple features like a light switch somewhere on the inside, or mirrors with lights on the sun blocker fold-down.
