2016 Ram Trucks 1500 Sport 4x4 Crew Cab 5.7 Hemi
Great truck so far! Highly recommended
Driver's side headlight fogged (inside) after going through the car wash. The dealer told me it was a manufacturing defect and replaced at no cost.
I got the truck new from a dealer in northern New Jersey. The lease with $0 down is $490/month, the game plan is to buy the truck out at the end for the agreed upon roughly $25,000 as stated in the lease agreement.
I thoroughly enjoy driving the truck. I would recommend buying one if you are in the market. I was formerly a "Ford guy," but have owned trucks from all the "Big 3". I have owned Ford and Dodge trucks (gas) and Chevrolet and Dodge (diesel). I do prefer a diesel but couldn't pass up the styling on the Ram 1500 Sport, Crew Cab, Blackout Package.
The Hemi engine is great. It is powerful and sounds great straight from the factory. I would say it is the wise choice in motors. The new diesel in the Ram 1500 is good, but the Hemi is better. Also, don't be ridiculous and get the V6, if that is still an option, hopefully it is not...
Fuel economy is surprisingly decent. My best average on the highway was 25 MPG (average speed 74 MPH). With normal driving, a healthy mix of city and highway, you can expect about 17 MPG.
Still under 10,000 miles but so far, so good. I will update as time and miles go on.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
