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
2007 Dodge Ram 3500 Quad Cab photo

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.

"I have owned this truck since 2004. The only problems ever experienced were those which I created. Ran fuel too low and damaged lift pump. I don't plan on buying another truck. The body style is dated now, but the truck is just so reliable. Tows like a champ. Steering could be improved however there are several aftermarket braces to resolve this issue. Great truck"

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

"Bought this Dodge new in '05 and have driven it since. Have not had one negative experience to speak of in the 9 years I've owned it. It is not without it's "drawbacks" though, mainly the Hemi 5.7L engine gas millage isn't exactly it's best selling feature. But, as for dependability (reliability) and performance it has been awesome! When I bought it I made sure it had all the "heavy duty" equipment installed to insure longevity. Heavy duty cooling system, heavy duty shocks and springs, added "overload springs" as well and, went with heavy duty "all terrine" performance tires. This "package" has provided an awesome driving experience. And, the engine has preformed beyond my expectations in the time I've owned it. Great truck."

Pros: "plenty of room, powerful engine, great size"

Cons: "front end (steering box, tie rods, ball joints)"

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

"The Dodge Mega cab has the potential to be one of the greatest trucks out there. Doge went cheap on the tie rods, steering gearbox, and ball joints. This causes the owner the hassle of forking out $2k to $3k for everything to be replaced. These issues were fixed in later model years. The biggest kicker is that Dodge fixed these issues and still wouldn't issue a recall on these parts for the 2008 model year. The truck has great space and utility, everything you want to do you can do in this truck. You can fit 5 6' adults and 1 smaller adult in this truck no problem. You can place most anything in the rear seats, 50" tv, nightstands, etc. Besides the front end issue mentioned earlier it is a great truck. Dodge should have put more into the design of the front end or at least recalled it and fixed it."

"This truck has a custom viper hood with air scoop, it has a after market 3' stainless steel exhaust and muffler, it has a afe fresh air-intake, with a Pacific Performance Engineering Xcelerator tuner chip that ads an additional 250 lbs of torque & 180 horse power. It comes with a truck cover! I'm selling it because I don't have need of it anymore because I sold my race car."
