That's exactly what I ended up with. It has the 390hp "multi-displacement" 5.7L Hemi with the 6spd auto trans. I'm still babying it a little, since it only has 85 miles on it so far. I did goose the demo truck they had on a test drive, and for being a bigger truck, it gets up and moves.
I'll say that it rides way smoother than my mom's F150 4x4, but her truck is quieter on the inside. I like how many "gadgets" you get with just the mid-level truck too. Things like the trailer wiring harness (even though my truck doesn't have a hitch yet), heated mirrors, all the cubby holes and storage spaces, and I like how the stock radio isn't completely garbage.
All in all, I think Dodge came a long way since the last time I owned one (I had a 2001 Dakota 2wd from new until 2004). We'll see how well it holds up in the long run.
