Two very different engine choices are available to Mega Cab customers, who will decide based on individual needs -- both work and play -- and desires. This truck's aptly-named Mega Cab goes a long way toward eliminating that disadvantage, yet retains a substantial conventional bed out back for your dirty, heavy stuff. At Dodge, the question seems not to have crossed anyone's mind. The front-hinged rear doors swing out nearly perpendicular 85 degrees to the body, opening a cavernous 34. Because of their specialty nature we expect that the resale values of the Mega Cab models will be strong compared to other domestic pickups. The optional Cummins Turbo Diesel offers torque enough to pull a house off its foundation and better on-road economy, at the cost of diesel noise and roughness. He was willing to work with my schedule and got some very minor issues taken care of before I picked up the car.
He was very accommodating and had the car ready to go when I had to bring my 1 year old with me to test drive and kept it short and sweet as we signed the paperwork. This is great for launching with heavy loads and for off-road creeping, but on-road, if you start in first gear, you'll need to shift to second almost immediately and to third before reaching 20 miles per hour. Love driving it and turning over the tires every now and then. It was just as described, no surprises. Partnered with the robust five-speed automatic, it's simply the most powerfully pleasing big-pickup powerplant available.
. Despite their bulk, these Mega Cabs steer, ride, handle and brake at least as well as competitive long-wheelbase heavy-duty pickups. Wonderful customer service and I love my new car! The Mega Cab now boasts the largest interior of any full-size pickup and features so much rear-seat legroom it's only a matter of time before someone starts using it as an off-road limo! How else can one explain the massive 2008 Dodge Ram Mega Cab pickup? How big is too big? As if the Ram Quad Cab isn't more truck than most folks need, the Mega Cab stretches its interior by replacing the standard eight-foot box with a six-foot bed and filling the remaining gap with an additional 20 inches of cab. The available automatic upshifts smoothly and quickly enough to mask this musclebound diesel's narrow torque band. Uplevel Laramie models also wear chrome on their front bumpers and side sills.
The true beauty of the Mega Cab's design is that its stem-to-stern dimensions remain identical to the eight-foot bed Ram Quad Cab pickup, meaning it will still fit in your garage -- but just barely. These are expensive trucks, but they have no real competitors in terms of flexibility and capability so they will likely sell close to sticker. The Cummins Turbo Diesel, by contrast, unleashes its monster 610 pound-feet of max torque at just 1600 rpm and its 325 peak horsepower at 2900 rpm. I forgot something in the car I traded in and had to loop back, I called Don and he was waiting at the front with my item. Those with diesel needs or tastes will love it, others won't.
