The truck has been dependable and is very similar to my 2006 Ram 250. However the diesel gas mileage is very discouraging. The prior truck got 22 to 23 MPG on the road, this one about 15 to 16 (not towing anything and on relatively flat terrain). VERY DIFFERENT than the prior Ram and what the salesman told me that I could expect from the 2012 truck! When I buy another truck I will need to look closely at the Chev and Fords.
