The full-size pickup segment has just been upped one notch. With the 2004 Dodge Ram 1500"s new 5.7-liter HEMI engine, the manufacturer hopes to wrestle control of the market. Now boasting the most powerful mass production light-duty pickup truck in the Ram 1500, Dodge is well on their way.

There are plenty of other upgrades for 2004. The 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 now features an optional full-time four-wheel drive system, and a new Tow/Haul transmission is also added for 2004. In addition, a navigation system is also available.

Interior Features Regular cabs sit three, while Quad Cabs handle six. Both are as rugged as they come.

The 2004 Dodge Ram Quad Cab is also now bigger than ever. Dodge manufacturers took three inches out of the short bed length and added it to the rear of the cab, creating a larger rear seating area with improved leg and hip room while maintaining payload capacity.
