2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Quad Cab Review

By

When it comes to heavy hauling, the domestic pickup fleet still has a lock on torque and towing ability, not to mention out-and-out ruggedness. If you're looking for a big truck with abilities equal to its imposing good looks, the Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 are just the ticket. For 2007, Dodge's big Ram continues with its signature big-rig front, gains more interior room with the addition of the Mega Cab model and adds power with the availability of the new Cummins Turbo Diesel engine. Of course, if diesel isn't your thing, the standard HEMI engine delivers more than enough power, and bragging rights, for most customers.

You'll Like This Car If...

Want a pickup that's loaded with personality? The Rams are as big, bold and in-your-face as the people who like driving them. With a standard 345-horsepower HEMI V8, the Ram 2500 is one of the most powerful pickups in its class. When equipped with the Cummins Turbo Diesel, the Ram can tow up to 16,300 pounds.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The Ram is a big truck designed for heavy-duty work. If you like the idea of a big truck, but commute through the suburbs on a daily basis, you may want to try something a bit smaller, such as the V8-powered Dakota.

What's Significant About This Car?

For 2007, a new 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel and six-speed automatic transmission make their debut. The Cummins Turbo Diesel is cleaner and quieter than the previous engine, and provides a whopping 650 pound-feet of torque.

Driving the Ram 2500 Quad Cab

Driving Impressions With improved ride and handling qualities and more sedan-like interiors, today's three-quarter and full-ton pickup trucks are more livable than ever. Our Dodge Ram 3500...

Mega Cab Laramie test vehicle—well equipped with a big Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, six-speed automatic transmission and optional dual rear wheels—was no exception.

The mini-monster's steering, brake and suspension systems combine to deliver a feeling of control that's reassuring in a vehicle this size. While its extreme load capacities require a sacrifice in ride quality that's most apparent on the highway—a condition amplified in our dually tester—even the biggest Ram pickup is comfortable enough for longer drives to the worksite.

Folding Armrest/Storage Unit
A wide folding armrest/storage unit is big enough to hold a laptop and comes complete with a 12-volt outlet.

New Interior
The Ram's new interior is every bit as plush as the new Ford F150, but is attached to a much more powerful platform.

Interior

The Ram's interior is clean and highly functional. The lines on the dash and door panels are straight and crisp, and the plastics used in their construction feel sturdy without appearing cheap. Seat comfort is excellent, as is interior storage. Unfortunately, the Quad Cab model features a rear bench seat that feels a bit upright and does not offer as much legroom as its competitors from Ford, Chevy and Nissan. Those seeking a big back seat need only look to the Mega Cab model.

Exterior

The aggressively-designed Ram exterior conveys a brutish, muscular appearance backed up by 17-inch wheels, towering ground clearance and a grille so big it needs its own ZIP Code. In dual-wheel form, the Ram 3500 almost looks like an 18-wheeler.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

Both the Ram 2500 and 3500 ST versions come with a 5.7-liter V8, six-speed manual transmission, air conditioning, AM/FM stereo with CD, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), 17-inch wheels, rear-bumper with step, keyless entry, vinyl 40/20/40 split bench seat and a tilt steering wheel.

Optional Equipment

Depending on trim, the options list is huge. The Ram can be ordered in 2500 or 3500 models with Regular, Quad or Mega Cabs, two- or four-wheel drive, two automatic transmissions (a four- and six-speed) and a choice of gasoline V8 or Cummins Turbo Diesel engines. Along the way, you can add leather seats, a GPS navigation radio, Infinity sound system, off-road package, trailer package, chrome wheels, power-adjustable pedals, limited-slip differential, power folding mirrors, fog lights, front side-impact airbags and a 34-gallon fuel tank.

"This truck was purchased on good Friday 2007. I have never hauled anything with it,nor has it seen bad weather. Since I have become owner of this vehicle it has spent it's entire life in a heated, and cooled environment. As my garage is built better than my 50 year old house.No rain, or snow has come in contact with this truck. I am retired,and because I don't need it I am offering it for sale. If you are looking to buy a Dodge Ram 1500 SLT with Thunder Road Package, and the engine is as clean on the inside as on the outside.Mobile 5w-30 Synthetic every 5000 miles. You will not find a nicer one out there with this low of millage only 29499 miles. That' only 3277 miles a year."

Pros: "great $/m, great towing, durable, reliable"

Cons: "parts are more expensive"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"It has plenty of torque with minor upgrades. Get an upgraded air intake, a good one. It will greatly increase your mileage and power. When keeping up with the fluids and all it is very reliable. Heck when hurting a lot it still ran. I got mine after someone destroyed the engine, but it still ran. Now the engine is rebuilt and it is unbelievable how much torque she has. Parts are more expensive but they last longer. so $ per mile in fuel and parts is probably about the same. But a properly taken care of and maintained truck with a cummins engine should last till 1 million miles. The 5.9L cummins is nicknamed "the million mile motor" because it can make it there, usually without needing a rebuild along the way. Ideal RPM's is at 1600, found that out. I am able to get 30 mpg at that RPM with stock diameter tires and an upgraded air intake (I own the K&N upgrade but there are ones that are supposed to be better). Also I would buy stuff that was high quality, yes more money upfront in most cases but it meant it lasted a lot longer than good quality. so to sum up: -get good parts -keep up on fluids -keep up on maintenance -$ per mile in fuel is cheaper, especially for the towing -$ per mile in parts is cheaper -reliable -treat it right and could hit 1 million miles"

"Purchased from local dodge dealer in 2008 and second owner. Had 40k miles. Now has 200K. Over the past 7 years the only thing I've had to do is replace the alternator and a/c cooling fan. Still has origional battery and belts and hoses! The 318 CI (4.7 lt)engine is one of the most reliable of any manufacturer. When they say ram tough, they mean it!"

"In April of 2014 while on a business trip in CA, I blew a head gasket.After an inspection by local Dodge dealer, heat damage was so severe, entire engine needed to be replaced. New engine obtained from Chrysler and installed by Dodge dealer at a cost of $7.5K. Truck runs now better than it did when purchased in 2004, better MPG's too. Also steering column replaced due to excessive play. Larry"
