2007 Dodge Ram 3500 Regular 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 Regular 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.

"I've loved this truck since I bought it new in November of 2008. 6 and a half years later, still kicking. Nothing more than scheduled maintenance two unexpected wheel hub replacements and 1 scary incident with a frozen brake caliper since. The quad cab isn't big enough for the wife and two kids I've accumulated since and its time to trade her in. That being said, no vehicle I own will ever be black again. But, it definitely will be a Ram."

"I currently own one, was looking at trading it in on a 01 2500 4x4 Cummins Turbo Diesel. Glad I didn't, they weren't going to give me half of its value. The truck has been a great addition to my collection, it will handle a ton of rock in bed without much difficulty and has never once left me in a bind. The worst thing about my truck, since it has the HEMI is the fuel mileage. I average around 10MPG in town and 13MPG on the highway. In its defense though it has plenty of power."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"The truck is great and is really comfortable to ride in. It has a nice interior for the model year and looks great on the outside too. The only thing to beware is the awful gas mileage if you get the 5.7 V8 and 4wd. Even though it is over 10 years old and is just a touch over 100k miles it is very reliable with only small maintenance every so often. The great visibility and power makes hauling stuff or pulling a trailer a breeze."

"Just passed 305000 miles, in this time besides tires and brakes and shocks,have replaced the water pump, fuel pump, and ac compressor. At 300000 miles the original muffler rusted out, but all the pipes still good! Have wore out two sets of front hubs. And no this is not a lightly used truck, I am a carpenter and use it all the time to tow trailers that I probably should not, and load it up too much way too many times. I keep up with maintenance as much as i can but being busy sometimes things are put off, but the old girl still is going strong. Original transmission and engine."
