Ram 2500 diesel that rides smooth like an SUV.

We love our Ram 2500 diesel. Wouldn't own anything else. It does great pulling our 38 foot travel trailer and you don't even know you're pulling it. Love the heated seats in the winter and the cool seats in the summer. We have had a few problems with our transmission shifting hard, but there have been recalls and different fixes for it. Since being in the shop, the transmission is shifting fine. We have owned in the past the Ram Mega Cabs which I loved because of the leg room in the back. We now own a crew cab and I was surprised at all the legroom in the back with it not being a mega cab. My husband was a Ford Technician for 26 years and would not own a Ford Diesel truck due to the problems they have had. The Ram drives smoothly and is very comfortable. The Fords run rougher. I like having a nice smooth driving truck that isn't rough riding. The Navigation has a large screen, easy to see. It is easy to update when needed. The Laramie has just about everything you can think of. I wouldn't buy any kind of truck other than a Dodge Ram diesel.

RAM 2500 slt cummins turbo diesel

The RAM 2500 SLT cummins is a great vehicle to tow with and great space. The only downside I have experienced with the vehicle are: suspension is a little rough and the vehicle's wheels are not wide enough to disperse the weight when off roading. This is a great vehicle and all of the complaints are fixable with aftermarket products. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is going to use the vehicle for towing. The gas mileage and power of the 6.7 cummins is amazing.

Awesome truck, tons of power!

I love this truck. It has a ton of torque and power. The diesel sound is great. . When I am towing the truck barely seems to notice. Also the gas mileage does not go down much while towing. The interior is not quite as high quality as some other brands and the weather stripping around the windows is not as great as the Chevy I had but I still love this truck. It is a lot of fun to drive.
