The only downside I see on this truck is the ride quality. Mine has the Cummings turbo diesel with an auto transmission. I am the second owne and feel very safe when im behind the whhel,and have the train horn for the idiots that turn out in front of me when im in a 8Klbs + battering Ram,but if you can't Dodge it,Ram it!! I'll probably be doing a tranny swap with in 2 years unless the truck gets traded in! Its fun to race little Toyotas and Hondas and watch their surpised looks from the rearview mirror. Besides regular maintenance, we have had no issues whatsoever! Awesome Truck — Great horsepower and torque! I get 9 - 10 mpg and once in a while I am lucky enough to get 11. I pull a 8000 lb travel trailer no problems. The cummins diesel engine is awesome and very good on fuel considering its a one ton truck. Get the 6 speed manual transmission or you won't get the mph.
. Primary Use: Utility towing boats, transporting cargo, etc. Maintenance can be a lil pricey tho. It is meant to work and won't dissappoint. If you baby it you can get 31 mph.
The engine is a awesome, has more power than I ever needed to pull a large camper, or heavy equipment. Primary Use: Utility towing boats, transporting cargo, etc. The only repairs, had turbo replaced under warranty. I have put 10,000 miles on it now. The comfort inside the cab is good. As far as the cab goes, Dodge has the most room, most comfortable, and best looking interior. I just wish that the truck had a manual tranny instead of the automatic trans.
One of the best vehicles we have ever owned and we've owned plenty! The gas mileage is 26 mph. Love my truck with only a few issues. Apparently you can't pull a travel trailer at 100mph for several hours at a time, who knew. Overall this is a great truck and I would purchase it again. I like the look of a F150 better but for the money.
The styling of the 2005 Dodge 2500 has always attracted attention as well. I'm a Ford guy but performance wise. The seats are not the most comfortable! It rides really rough but that is expected with the big springs on it. Will Tow Anything In Style And Keep Up Wiyh A Mustang Gt — I like everything,power,towing,brakes,fuel mileage ect. The interior has plenty of room for my family of 5.
