(2014 1500 Laramie) Beautiful Truck, In Love Initially....
I purchased this truck brand new in November of 2014. I love the look and level of finish inside. This truck has every amenity. I've officially been pampered. This truck has been a dream come true. I mean....It was a dream come true. November of 2015 was the start of the problems listed.-Malfunctioning Headlamps (Shut themselves off on highway at 70mph, Turn themselves on in the middle of night)-Random diagnostic codes(brakes, airbag, ambient temp sens, circuit #1 low volt)-Vehicle starts 65% of the time-Efficiency dropped from 20mpg to 15mpg-VIN has 2 active recalls and I can't get a repair scheduled because Ram Service Shops are FULL!-Warranty is useless without service-Chrysler expects me to pay for partsIf I could return my truck to operational status, I would again have the best half ton truck ever created. Until then I'm floundering and looking to trade for a Silverado.

Great truck. HEMI does surprisingly well on gas with the 8 speed--about 22 in mixed driving. Looks good, rides good. Probably would have preferred a different wheel and tire combination that the 20' Chrome-clad wheels it came with, but that is a minor thing. No complaints at all, 7 + months in.

I traded in a 2011 Ram 1500 Bighorn for a 2014 Ram 1500 Bighorn. Both trucks have the 5.7 Hemi. My new truck has the new 8 speed transmission. The old truck had the 5 speed transmission. The difference is incredible. My new truck accelerates much better at every level. Low end grunt off the line is tremendous. Getting on the freeway gets you up to 75 MPH in no time. Also, when cruising on the freeway the engine is only turning 2,000 RPMs versus 2,700 RPMs. This is the fastest, smoothest and best riding truck I've ever had. And I've had 11 others in my life. Fords, Chevys, GMCs and Dodges.
