Ram 2500 Laramie opinions
In looking at purchasing a 2016 model.
I'm looking for reviews from any owners on here.
Also, what price would be considered fair to good?
Thanks.

A good price would be under tree fiddy.

Cab config? Diesel?

2500 Laramie with a Cummins will set you back at least $55,000 or $60,000 assuming you can get some good rebates and negotiate. I have a well equipped 1500, my must have options: heated/cooled seats, 8.7" touchscreen with premium audio, larger fuel tank, and front/rear park sensors.

A 2500 dodge diesel can be had under $40k, if you want one bad enough. Just get the tradesman trim and few to no options. Still a nice and very capable truck.

Can't get financed from GM or Ford?

Only reason I can see anyone wanting to but a dodge.

The new Rams are extremely nice and capable vehicles. I would shop an HD pickup truck based solely on features and price these days. The symbol in the grille means absolutely nothing today.

Its not a dodge. He is talking about buying a Ram.

ETA: my next truck might be a Cummins Ram. Since Mercedes bought the truck line these trucks have made big improvements. OP I say about 40k would be a good price for a 2016.

When your vehicles suck so bad that you have to dissociate the only POS you have that sells from the rest of your POS vehicles

You can laugh all you want, but Dodge no longer owns the trucks. They are owned by Mercedes now.

They're owned by Chrysler, which is owned by Fiat. Calling them Ram instead of Dodge Ram is a name change with no significance.

I've owned 3 Dodge and 1 Ram trucks and never had an issue with any of them. They were not the most plush vehicles but they performed flawlessly. I can't say that much for the 2 GMC's and the 1 Ford I owned. My F-150 has been an ok truck but have had multiple issues with it something my Ram's never had.

Have you been in one of the new trucks lately? The interior is 100 times better.

I have owned two GMC trucks and have had about enough of them. Especially when my current truck has a piece of shite motor in it that just burns oil constantly. Go look up how many Cummins are still running at 500,000 miles.

my buddies Powerstroke has been nothing but problems for him. Had to replace a turbo and now it leaks fluid into the oil. Could quit on him any day.

What does that have to do with your statement that Ram was sold of by Chrysler to Mercedes, which is not true?

Ram President Fred Diaz has stated that "Ram trucks will always and forever be Dodges. Ram will always have the Dodge emblem inside and outside and they will be 'vinned' (from the acronym VIN, or Vehicle Identification Number) as a Dodge. It's a Dodge
