With its Hemi V8, this version of the Ram is among the quickest trucks we've tested.
But it's also one of the thirstiest, averaging a paltry 11 mpg.
A jittery ride and cumbersome handling hurt the Ram's overall score, as did the barely adequate brakes.
The cabin is a bit noisy, and access is very difficult.
On the plus side, our Ram had a large cargo bed and tows more than 8,000 pounds.
