Smooth reliable strong truck with a lot to offer in a smaller package
I bought the truck from a dealer in Winnipeg, Canada. They installed the daytime running lights since it was a US truck.
The daytime running lights relay went. I could fix it myself, however I prefer the option to have the lights off when needed.
Nothing else went wrong with the truck so far..
Very strong 265HP engine.
Not bad on fuel considering it's power.
Very reliable, never plugged it in all winter and always started.. our winters go down to even -50 and more..
Very smooth ride.. Prefer it over my previous 345HP Dodge Ram..
Pulled 16ft trailers full of furniture along with the bed, and can still get through traffic with ease..
Passing people on highways is a breeze.. when passing individuals going 100km/hr I usually end up at 140-160km/hr by the time I pass them.. Very quick.
4x4 designed very well.. had my trucks frame dragging snow with bare tires and still didn't get stuck..
Interior very comfortable and the truck heats up quick in Winter.. (5-10 minutes) in -50 weather..
Most powerful truck in its class with the best fuel economy.. 265HP @ 19mpg.. the Dodge Dakota V8 is the closest rival and only sits at 261HP @ 14mpg.
Very satisfied.. Will drive the truck till the panels fall off..
