Car video reviews:

Body style: Truck
Segment: Heavy Duty Pickup

The big, heavy-duty pickups are not meant to be daily drivers, but when the owner needs to tow every day 17.000 lbs, and a crew of five plus luggage, the Mega Cab HD was a great choice.

Usually, the HD pickups don't feature some special comfort amenities or some special styling. They are just working horses who don't have to look good. They just have to pull heavy loads. The Mega Cab was huge enough to raise the question if a CDL was needed.

For the styling, the Mega Cab shared the same front fascia with its lighter brothers such as the RAM 1500 Laramie. It looked like it had as much chrome on the grille as a luxury sedan on the whole vehicle. Even the front bumper was chromed, and it wasn't chromed plastic.

Inside, there was room for five or six, depending on the option. The particular difference of the mega cab was the extension behind the rear seats that provided a 1x6 ft (304x1828 mm) storage compartment for a gun, a shovel, and some more. Since the vehicle was long enough, it was available only with the 6'4” (1950 mm) bed. The rear twin-wheel made the car almost as wide as a traffic lane.

The best part of the big, 21 ft rig from nose to hitch was under the hood. Apart from the 5.7-liter Hemi engine, there were three other options based on the same inline-six Cummins engine with three power levels.
