Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

"Handling and comfortable ride."

Eleanor P., FL (2019 Ram 1500)

"fabulous acceleration and handling"

Anonymous, TX (2019 Ram 1500)

"Very smooth driving and handling. Turns nicely. Steering very responsive. Don't think it accelerates any faster than the 2015, but ride is definitely nicer at high speeds."

Lannette P., AZ (2019 Ram 1500)

"the truck rides and handles like a big luxury car. It's fun to drive and great acceleration."

"5.7 hemi is smooth and excellent power when needed"

Ronald B., MI (2019 Ram 1500)

"With the 8 speed and 3.92 rear end, there is excellent torque and acceleration. First gear is a very low gear and off the line acceleration is quite strong. The torque curve for the push rod engine is much better than the Tundras quad cam. There is noticeably more low rpm torque compared to the Tundras same engine size (5.7L). The Tundra also has a lower gear (4.3) compared to the RAM (3.9) and the RAM still feels like it has more torque. The 8 speed transmission is very smooth and shifts are hard to notice."

Jeffrey H., MD (2019 Ram 1500)

"It gets up and goes. The transmission shifts so smooth. It is quiet and powerful. Amazing."

Anonymous, UT (2019 Ram 1500)

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Drives like a car! Comfort is outstanding! Noise, what noise! Quiet as quiet could be,"

Patrick D., NY (2019 Ram 1500)

"Ride is better than my previous Lexus IS300"

Anonymous, CT (2019 Ram 1500)

"The cloth seat are very comfortable and it is extremely quiet inside. It rides great! It is the smoothest riding and shifting truck I have ever driven. A huge improvement over my old 2006 Ford F250."

D C., IL (2019 Ram 1500)

"The Ram is very silent when driving. Very smooth riding. A great daily driver. The air suspension is nice over bumps, but it's still a truck, so it does not drive like a lexus sedan. Bumps do not cause excessive noise in the cabin. The exhaust is very well tamed during regular driving. When you hit the gas hard, you get a great V8 sound. Driving feels very natural. Steering is weighted correctly and not overly light like the Tundra."

Jeffrey H., MD (2019 Ram 1500)

"BIG Improvement over our 2015. Rides more like a luxury vehicle. Very quiet, light and handles great."

Lannette P., AZ (2019 Ram 1500)

"Seats are both heated and air conditioned. They are very comfortable, even on rough surfaces. Road noise is almost non-existent."

Dennis C., MA (2019 Ram 1500)

"Very quiet. Air suspension is great. Seat adjustments, steering wheel , pedal adjustments allow you to set the driving to your likes."
