2013 Ram 2500 6.7 Laramie 4x4 Mega Cab
New to the forum. Just bought a 2013 Ram 2500 6.7 Laramie 4x4 Mega Cab. This is not my first diesel, but my first Dodge diesel. I come from the dreaded 2006 F250 6.0.
Just wanted to give my first impressions on the truck. Of course it will be somewhat biased as I did buy it.
First: Fit and Finish - WOW!, this thing is amazing, way more than anyone will ever need, even has wifi, the nav system very user friendly, the in dash screen to me is even cooler than the nav system, has every type of monitor and readout you would need for hauling.
Second: Power is unbelievable. I dont have a heavy foot, but on the test drive i looked down and was doing 75 and didnt even realize. Shifts seem less and smooth. Great acceleration. On the vehicle breakdown sheet at the dealer the GCWR was rated for 25,000# with 3.42 gears.
Third: MPG - I only have 127 miles on it so the numbers are preliminary, but on the way home I was avg 22 mpg. Super impressed. The dealership said I could expect to get 14 or so hauling my 10,000# trailer and after break-in I could expect to see around the 25 mpg range.
Last but not least this truck is actually my wifes! Haha!
