2005 Dodge Ram Review

Rams are smooth and refined, particularly when compared with the previous generation. The Quad Cab is handy for hauling friends and family but even the standard cab is roomy. Arguably, the Ram is the best-looking truck on the market. The Hemi V8 engine has drawn much attention for its power and efficiency as well as the heritage its name evokes.

It's also smooth and sophisticated, benefiting from a modern overhead-cam design. Full-time four-wheel drive (all-wheel drive) is available with the 4.7-liter for improved stability in slippery conditions.

Dodge added 3 inches to the cab's total length when the Ram was redesigned for 2002, stealing that space from the bed. Regular Cab and Quad Cab versions offer identical roominess in the front seats. 

The Ram comes with a front bench seat split 40/20/40. Laramie models get silver trim adorning the door panels and instrument bezels. Laramie comes with distinctive leather trim, with higher contrast color seat inserts.

On leather-trimmed models, cloth is used on the inboard seat-bottom trim where leather would have offered a cleaner appearance. The big fold-down center armrest/console comes with adjustable dividers and a power outlet. Big mirrors on the Ram make it easier to see what's behind. 

Side-curtain airbags are a $390 option on Regular Cabs, $490 on Quad Cabs.

Large heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) buttons can be operated while wearing gloves. Regular Cab models come fitted with a tray behind the seats big enough to hold a large bucket. Big hooks behind the seats are handy for hanging dry cleaning or plastic shopping bags.
