Anybody have one? How do you like it? Thinking about this for my next truck. My mechanic son isn't impressed though so I'll probably stick with the Hemi (current one is still in good shape after 13 years and 150K). Just wonder if anyone had 1st hand experience.

Seeing more and more Rams being purchased as farm trucks down here in the IV. I know 1 guy who has the ecodeisl and love the power and the mileage.

We recently got the 2500 hemi and love it!!

I gots one, 2015 4X4 Outdoorsman Crew Cab, bought it in Dec. of 2015. Love the ride. Mileage isn't what I hoped to see. 24 to 26MPG on my wister runs. Cost me $43.76 to get to Woodland Ca. Just north of Davis. Loved that. No issues so far

24-26 mph isn't good in a full size truck?......My Ranger gets an average of 17 and is the gutless wonder...... :smiley_doh_ani:


Damn, I always heard Dodge mileage sucked.

It's good, but there are forums that say they are getting 30.....but I'm skeptical. My old truck got 10 so I'm not complaining too much....

sittin on GODS porch lookin through 15s at his des
Following these little diesel pick ups closely.... might be my next one as well... I know dodge has theirs(believe Isuzu is making it), the Titan has the cummins in it this year and the Tundra is going to have the cummins this next year I believe, I might wait a couple years and let them get the bugs figured out before I drop the hammer, I just hope they dont change the body style of the Tundras, This years Titan body style is hideous, and dont care for the cab size of the dodge....

I bought the RAM 1500 Hemi a year ago and love it. One thing you get with a Hemi but is not available on the Diesel is a lifetime bumper to bumper warranty.

I remember when they offered that a while back. That was after I bought mine. When I bought my Hemi it was 7 years / 70,000 miles. I just checked and the currents warrantees are 5 years / 100,000 on the Ecodiesel and 5 years / 60,000 on the Hemi (or the 3.6 L too). Thanks for the responses. I'll have to do the math and decide. I'm kind of leaning toward the Hemi though since I've had good luck with the one I have now. We'll see.
