2007 Dodge Ram 3500 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 3500 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.

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

"I have owned this truck for three years. I rated the overall value of this truck as a 7 because it is more expensive to buy the diesel option. In my opinion, it is the only reason to have this truck. It is comfortable to sit and ride in, but there are a few common issues with this year range. The air damper controls do not function anymore in mine, i.e. you cannot change between the defrost, floor, or dash vents. Also, the back door locks are now manual locks; the electric locks do not function on the back doors anymore. The steering had to be upgraded to prevent death wobble and I believe this was a recall from the company. Other than these issues, it is the best truck I have ever owned. The manual transmission is the way to go because of its reliability and ability to handle more abuse from towing. The manual transmission gets a lot better fuel mileage as well because you have better control over the RPM's while cruising through town. Some of my ratings above would have been higher if these issues were addressed from the factory and did not cost me time and/or money to fix. Towing is great, fourwheel drive works great in snow and offroad on my hunting or fishing trips, and gets great mileage compared to similar sized gas trucks."

"We bought this truck a year ago to pull our 34 foot 5th wheel camper. It pulls it like a champ! Most times you cannot even tell that you are pulling anything. The fuel mileage is not great (about 10 mpg)but I knew that would not be great considering the size of camper that we have. There is plenty of room in the cab, and is a pretty nice ride considering that it is a heavy truck."

"This Dodge Ram is the best truck that I have ever owned. It is now 11 years old, and I have put 240,000 miles on it, and it is still a very dependable truck. I drive it every single day. It has never needed any repairs. I have only had to put a water pump, and a starter on it in 11 years. I'm a middle aged woman, and I feel safe driving my Dodge. I know I have a dependable vehicle. Well worth the money that I paid for it 11 years ago. And it still has a great value today."
