With its latest redesign, the Ram 1500 has established itself as a leader in the full-size truck market. Thanks to an expert blend of performance, style, comfort, and refinement, this prodigious pickup has garnered praise from customers and critics alike. Charlotte truck-shoppers can configure the Ram 1500 as a Quad Cab with a long bed or a Crew Cab with a short or long bed. Features for the Ram 1500 are organized across six primary trim levels, and many features of the upper trims are available options on supporting models. With so many configuration options, the Ram 100 offers something for almost every need.

What Are the Standard Features of the Ram 1500?

The base-level Tradesman trim covers the basics with minimal frills, making it an ideal no-nonsense fleet or work truck. Standard features include a 3.6-liter V-6 engine (305 horsepower, 269 pound-feet of torque), push-button start, 18-inch steel wheels, trailer-sway control, a five-inch touchscreen display, and six audio speakers. Crew Cab models come with an in-floor second-row storage compartment.

 


What Upgrades Are Available for the Big Horn Trim?

The Big Horn trim adds extra amenities like fog lights, tinted windows, a 60/40-split second-row bench, and 18-inch alloy wheels. This tier is also the entry point to several available enhancements like 20-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, a Uconnect infotainment system with 8.4-inch (or 12-inch) touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

What Engine Comes Standard on the Laramie Trim?

The Laramie trim gets a power boost under the hood, as it's the first trim in the lineup to include the 5.7-liter V-8 (395 horsepower, 410 pound-feet of torque) as standard equipment. Laramie models nudge the Ram 1500 into luxury territory with comfort and convenience features like power mirrors, a power rear window, a standard 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen, 20-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, and power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats.

What Makes the Limited Trim Top-of-the-Line?

The Limited trim takes the luxury experience to the next level, with adjustable four-corner air suspension, chrome trim, premium leather upholstery, power-retractable side steps, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and a Blind Spot Monitoring System with Trailer Detection.

Is the Longhorn Trim Luxurious

The Ram 1500's penultimate trim level, Longhorn, plants the pickup in premium territory. Standard features for this luxe tier include chrome side steps, automatic high beams, front bucket seats with upgraded upholstery, 20-inch wheels, a leather-wrapped wood steering wheel, a power-releasing tailgate, navigation, a spray-in bed liner, and heated, ventilated, and reclining rear seats.

Is the Rebel an Off-Road Trim?

If you don't like feeling limited to the well-traveled paths, the off-road-focused Rebel trim adds necessary equipment for leaving the tarmac behind. Features include skid plates, tow hooks, all-terrain tires, hill-descent control, an electronic locking rear axle, bucket seats, a Class IV hitch receiver, and a 115-volt household-style power outlet.

What Are Some Notable Options for the Ram 1500?

Available on any trim, the turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 (260 horsepower, 480 pound-feet of torque) returns to the lineup for 2020, blending excellent towing and efficiency rating. An EcoDiesel-equipped Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,560 pounds when properly equipped and achieve an EPA-estimated 32 mpg on the highway.

Laramie, Longhorn, and Limited trims also have access to advanced driver-assistance technologies like adaptive cruise control, automated parking, automatic emergency braking, and more.
