The 2011 RAM 1500 Regular Cab has a decent interior, comfortable seats, smooth ride quality, and powerful engine options that make quite an impressive selling point. There are two-bed lengths and three trims available for the RAM 1500 Regular Cab. A 3.7-liter V6 engine powers the base trim, while a 4.7-liter V8 powers the higher trims.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

With a starting price of $20,810, the RAM 1500 competes against the Ford F-150 Regular Cab, GMC Sierra 1500 Regular Cab, and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Regular Cab. The 2011 RAM 1500 meets all the basic requirements of an average user and has more to offer. The optional powerful V8 engines enhance the overall driving experience however the base engine leaves much to be desired.

We recommend

The Sport trim level is the one we suggest. It sports a big and powerful Hemi V8 engine that provides an extraordinary performance along with all of the standard amenities found in lower-end models. The necessity for Sport trim arises from the basic engine's lackluster performance.

Engine and Performance
8.6/10

A 3.7-liter V6 engine produces 215 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque in the 2011 RAM 1500. The power generated by this gasoline engine is sent to the truck's rear-wheel-drive via a 4-speed automatic transmission. The standard V6 is considered to be underwhelming. Things alter dramatically when the Hemi V8 engine is installed, and the RAM 1500 can tow up to 10,400 pounds.

With the HEMI under the hood, the Ram performs best, getting 13/19 mpg while never lacking in power or torque, but it's not cheap. Six-speed automatic transmissions aren't available in the Ram, unlike the competition; the five-speed combined with the HEMI is the best option. Cylinder deactivation is standard on all Ram models to increase fuel economy while traveling at highway speeds.

In terms of power output, the Ford F-150 is at the top of the list. It has a 3.7-liter engine that produces 302 horsepower, which even larger displacement engines like the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado couldn't match. The RAM 1500 comes in second, followed by the GMC and the Chevrolet, which comes in last with a 195-horsepower output.

Fuel Economy
5.0/10

The EPA scores the 2011 Ram 1500 in two-wheel drive at 14 mpg city and 20 mpg highway for both the V-6 and HEMI engines, a strange result that reflects the smaller engine's older design and the HEMI's cylinder deactivation. Because of its flex-fuel flexibility, the 4.7-liter engine gets 14/19 mpg. Four-wheel drive, which is exclusively available on V-8 vehicles, reduces city and highway mileage by 1-2 mpg, resulting in a 13/18 mpg rating with either engine.

The Ford F-150 is without a doubt the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the segment in terms of efficiency. It is followed by the RAM, which comes in second, and the GM twins, which come in third with a combined mileage of 17 mpg. While all pickup trucks in this sector have a fuel tank capacity of 26 gallons, the Ford F-150 has the longest range in the segment due to its higher mileage ratings. Power yield is a sound 310 hp and 330 lb-ft of force, while efficiency with 2WD is 14/19/15 mpg (4WD drops it by 1 mpg).

Interior
8.9/10

The Ram 1500's inside is hopefully acceptable in the pickup section. The top-trim Laramie, with its leather upholstery and wood-grain trim, makes for an extremely luxurious pickup, yet even the lower trim levels have an appealing plan, instinctively positioned controls, and well-finished materials. The front seats, while rather delicate, find some kind of harmony among help and solace. The group taxi's back seat is entirely open to, offering heaps of legroom and a pleasant recline angle.

The optional RamBox feature, which installs a pair of lockable compartments over the back fenders into the truck bed, is unique to this pickup. It's a nice feature, however, we've discovered that the sections aren't as durable as one might hope. The Ram provides plenty of standard and optional storage spaces. Major Interior features in the 2011 RAM 1500 Regular Cab include:

  • Vehicle anti-theft system
  • Vinyl Seats 
  • Air conditioning
  • Power steering
  • Adjustable steering wheel 

How intuitive is the 2011 RAM 1500’s infotainment unit?

2011 RAM 1500 comes with a 10-speaker audio system for amusement and music. There's even a wireless Internet and TV option with Chrysler's Uconnect system, which starts with an AM radio and roll-up windows on the base Ram and progresses to a USB and Bluetooth-enabled, hard-drive-based music system and voice-activated navigation system on higher-end versions. A DVD player for both front and rear-seat passengers is also available, as are steering-wheel-mounted radio control, satellite radio. Noteworthy features in the 2011 RAM 1500 Regular Cab are:

  • 10-speaker sound system 
  • AM/FM Stereo 
  • Navigation System
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Satellite Radio(optional)
  • Auxiliary Audio Input
  • MP3 Player
Exterior
8.0/10

The proportions of the Ram, from the hood to the cab to the glass to metal body ratio, emphasize the two-tone treatment available on select variants. Despite the fairly basic tailgate, the dual exhaust pipes give the back a powerful appealing look. The 2011 Ram 1500 looks a lot like the previous year's model because of several similarities. Strong fenders, a towering chrome crosshair grille, smooth sides, and big wheels are all part of the formula for the best-looking full-size truck on the market. The Ram 1500's appearance can now be customized with a variety of different colors.

Safety
7.5/10

Four-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability control, hill-start assist, trailer-sway control, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags are all standard on the 2011 Ram 1500. The Ram achieved a three-star (out of five) overall rating in the government's new, more rigorous 2011 crash testing procedure. Overall frontal crash protection received two stars, whereas overall side crash protection received five stars. Some of the safety features in the 2011 RAM 1500 Regular Cab are:

  • Driver Airbag 
  • Brake Assist
  • Traction Control
  • ABS
  • 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes
  • Passenger Airbag
  • Stability Control
Final Verdict

Though the V6 engine is a little underperforming in the RAM 1500, the V8 engine option provides a comfortable ride and a lot of hauling power. The RAM 1500 is a tough truck with a manly appearance. The inside is rather opulent, and the seats are extremely comfy, with plenty of headroom and legroom. Overall, this is one of the toughest contenders in the segment.

Capable and luxurious pickup truck

Pros - Quality cabin materials, comfortable ride, smooth shifting transmission along with strong towing and hauling capabilities.

Cons - Poor safety scores.

I've driven it for over 7000 miles and am quite satisfied with its pleasant and calm ride, as well as its quick handling. The V6 engine not only provides strong acceleration, but it also delivers power in a very smooth and quiet manner. The inside has an appealing design, high-quality materials, and easy-to-reach...

Pros - Efficient engine with ample interior space, comfortable ride, fuel efficient and good quality cabin materials.

Cons - Difficult to use rotary shift dial.

Comfortable and spacious pickup. My RAM 1500 functions excellently on the road and on the ranch. The V6 engines are combined with an eight-speed automatic gearbox that shifts quickly and delivers power when needed. It can pull up to 10,000 pounds and haul up to 2000 pounds, which is more than enough for me. It gets about 15 miles per gallon in town and 23 miles per gallon on the highways. It trav...
