- On a hill
We just got back from a vacation in the mountains last week.
Going on long trips I like to rent different cars, have for years.
This time, since going to the mountains I chose a truck. And this is what we got.
Super quiet cab. I don't believe I have ever been in a pick up that is this quite on the road.
Ride is slightly stiff, as you expect in a pickup but on the HWY smooth and quiet. Liked it.
The 5.7 Hemi has a lot of heft. Great take off, and brilliant speed when you need it. It will sink you into your seat nicely.
Plenty of cargo space with the full cab, although when the back seats are down...looks like it would be a little cramped?
The seats are pretty decent. Hours of driving and neither of our butts were sore, or a sore back. So pretty good.
The software for the screen is clunky and slow. Hooking your phone up takes too long, and sometimes simply doesn't connect unless you try 2-3 times.
Why does the radio keep coming on everytime you start the motor? Even after you shut it off BEFORE you stop the engine. The radio came on every time we started the engine over 6 days.
Transmission is a little clunky at low speeds. Take off is very nice if you are on the highway and giving some throttle, but at low speeds in the city the transmission shifts a little hard and not always at the right time.
All in all a pretty nice truck.
Wouldn't buy one though.
