2001 Dodge Ram Pickup SLT Laramie Cummins turbo diesel from North America
Great all around diesel truck
The only thing I can complain about is the paint quality. After owning this truck for only a few months, I already had quite a few rock chips on area below the doors. Nothing major though.
This is an awesome truck.
It functions as both my horse/flatbed hauler as well as my daily driver to and from work/school.
My 2500 handles well, is comfortable for long trips, and I've gotten up to 26 mpg highway. I average 18-20 mpg city.
I recommend Dodge Ram 2500s (or 3500s) to anyone who asks what kind of truck they should buy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I find it hard to believe the mileage you get. In fact its impossible!!! I have the 5.9L engine and I get 10 city and 14 highway.
Just because its hard to believe doesn't mean it isn't true I get 20-23 highway with my 360 motor.
I have heard from different people who have the Ram with the Cummins that they can get 25mpg highway without a load.
Reading his topic, its his diesel truck. The Cummins 6 Cylinder gets 20+ MPG when geared right and driven nicely. Diesel(fuel) contains more power per stroke, and the engine design is more efficient than gasoline.
VERY smooth ride, we just bought a 2001 2500 SLT Laramie and it ROCKS. You can really suck gas if you drive your truck like it's a sports car. Drive it like a spaceship and you'll get what we get: 21 highway, and at least 16 around town.
