The New Ram 1500 is amazing! The Ram has the best ride of any truck on the market with it's new suspension, hydroformed frame, and new body mounts. Less NVH than any of the others. This is especially noticable when the truck is empty or only lightly loaded on rougher roads. The performance is top-notch too! With the 390hp / 407tq Hemi, the truck can outrun any of it's competitors, even with their larger engines. And the Hemi offers 20+mpg on the highway, something the other guys' can only dream about with their top-of-the-line engines. Even the smaller 4.7 V8 produces excellent power (310hp / 330tq), in fact it is comparable to Ford's 5.4L, and it costs much less. It also has FlexFuel capability. The suspension aide in performance as well. With the rear axle firmly located, no power is lost to axle wrap or movement, meaning the full potential of the powertrain can be felt and utilized. The 5-spd Auto is well tuned, maximizing performance and economy based on throttle position and g-force sensors. The ERS system makes the transmission a manu-matic, and allows more complete control of the powertrain. Ram has the largest brakes in the class (14.3" with dual-piston calipers in front, 14.1" in back), and standard ESP with full ABS, Traction Control, Trailer Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, Brake Assist, and Electronic Roll Mitigation. The Trailer Sway Control can actually apply trailer brakes to a trailer in an emergency situation ,even if no trailer brake controller is present! Although Ram makes that really easy to fix to with the available fully-integrated Trailer Brake Controller. The Ram's new styling the boldest of any of the trucks, and offers the most finished, and complete look of any of it's competitors. Now strange body lines, akward buldges, or after-thought design cues here - this truck looks great! And the functionality is amazing! Everything is tidy and in a sensible location. This truck was made with the driver in mind, as demonstrated by the ease of reach of all the controls in the cabin. Also, the bold styling also allows the Ram to be the most areodynamic truck on the market. Only the old 94-01 Rams have been more efficient. The Ram has it all! Power, capability, fuel economy, roominess, a host of high-end tech features, good looks, a mean attitude, and best of all, value! Even if you're a Ford guy, or a Chevy guy, or Toyota guy, or not even a truck guy - go drive a Ram, and see what you've been missing!

I just purchased a 2010, Ram 1500 Sport, Crew cab, 2 x 4. I do not like this truck...I LOVE this truck. I have owned cars and SUV's but never a pickup truck and I must say this truck is amazing. I have never even owned an Amercan vehicle before but the RAM is making me a convert. I drove all the competitors, and I suggest you do the same, because when you drive the RAM you will feel the difference. The HEMI is perfect, never have I felt so comfortable driving such a powerful engine. When they say this truck drives like a car they mean it. No bouncing around the cab, nice and smooth over all surfaces. Not much is written about the UConnect feature, but it's worth the extra money in my opinion. Hands free phone calls is the safest feature in my book. Voice recognition software works well after you train it. I would not hesitate to buy this vehicle again. With the current cash back and 0 % financing offers you can't lose.

I have a 2010 Dodge Ram Big Horn edition I love this vehicle, It performs very well out in the woods, and highway. The slick rear bumper is formed to the dual exhaust so it gives it a neat look. The hemi in this thing is ridiculous it has lots of power and I get 20-24 mpg on the highway with it. Awesome truck.

Big Horn Ram

I love the versatility of trucks and this one has delivered on everything. I drove four different manufactures, I liked the Ram’s exterior, handling/ride, power for the size of motor (5.7), and interior space hands down over everything else I drove. The performance has exceeded my expectation in every aspect. We pull a 23 ft speed boat to some of the larger lakes in the area and getting to them requires climbing a few mountains (Jellico). I was able to accelerate up the mountain from 60 MPH to 80 MPH with ease while pulling our boat. Even on the long trips it was very comfortable and the cabin area was really quiet which made for a nice ride. This is my fourth 4X4 truck I have owned and by far is the best all around. We take 3 kids and a dog when we travel and the crew cab accommodates well. Traded a 2005 Ram Big Horn 4X4 4.7 for this one, till now that was my favorite vehicle. This one takes 1st place. I just can't say enough good stuff about the 2010 Ram. I love everything about it 20" wheels, dual exhaust (looks and sounds awesome), Front grill/hood design, the smooth ride with the rear coil link suspension, and with the new ECO mode I am actually getting better gas mileage! Best purchase I have made in a long time.

I purchased my Light Greystone Pearlstone (awesome color by the way) 2010 Ram 1500 SLT Crew Cab 4x4 with the Big Horn Package in late October 2010. I am VERY happy so far. The ride is awesome- smooth, but yet powerful with 390 horses with the 5.7 L. The syling is the best on the market with the edgy yet refined parts that make an awesome whole. I love the bucket seats and would recommend that option to all that don't need the bench seat up front. I get complimented on the truck all the time. The only concern I have that diminishes my experience is when the engine reduces from 8 to 4 cylinders. The ECO mode is a bit rough at times, like it is downshifting, and feels jerky sometimes. However, I am happy to save the $ on gas. I anticipate I will easily get 20 mpg on the highway once it is broke in (only 2,000 miles so far).

bought my 2010 ram new alittle over a year ago. regular cab, shortbed, 4.7L, 4x4, inferno red, w/chrome package. I'm still to this day getting compliments on how great it looks. This truck is awesome, can't beat the ride, very comfortable,great view of the road from all angles. getting 15.5 mpg city, but haven't checked a full tank on highway yet. after 1 yr and 11,400mi. my ONLY complaint is. the low rpm acceleration is alittle sluggish. but knock the rpms up a bit and it will put you back in the seat. finally inferno red has got to be the best color on the road

I haul 1200-1500 pounds of concrete everyday in the back of this truck and it has still yet to let me down. Rides very smooth with weight in the back though when empty is like any other truck out there. Off roading, it handles itself nicely, however you have to be careful when going about 30+ in dirt, you can start to get you back side swaying and bouncing easily, but thats due to the coil suspension. My truck has the 4.7l v8 which easily matches my bosses 2010 ford f-150's 5.4 v8. Only reason I gave it 4 stars in Performance is the transmission has a gap at 2-3 and 3-4 gear shifts but thats only with the 4.7l the 5.7l doesnt have that problem.
