Ram adds Laramie Limited trim to truck lineupThu, 26 Jan 2012 00:00:00 -0800
In past years, if you wanted an upgrade from the Ram Laramie you had to take the Longhorn edition, cowboy hat and all. Now Ram is introducing a slightly toned-downed version called the Laramie Limited.
The Limited features full leather seating, piano-black interior trim and less obvious badges than its brethren.
The Laramie Limited has a body-color front fascia with fog lamps and a matching rear bumper. Heavy-duty models stick with chrome bumpers. The Limited's chrome grille surrounds billet inserts. There are chrome accents on the mirrors, door handles and side steps.
Ram 1500 models get the 20-inch wheels from the Laramie Longhorn, while heavy-duty models get 17s. Wheel centers feature the Ram brand name.
The Limited is offered in six colors--black, silver, white, red, gray and true blue. Heavy-duty models are offered in the same hues, except for blue and red.
Inside, you won't find any Texas stars or buckles on the rear seat pockets. What you will find is contrasting piping, a double-stacked center console and 100 percent leather seats.
The Laramie Limited has LED puddle lights on the outside door handles and a full-length light inside to illuminate the map pockets. The dash is trimmed in piano black with liquid graphite bezels and chrome vent rings. A Limited badge adorns the glovebox.
As for other features, the Laramie Limited gets navigation, a backup camera, remote start and adjustable pedals.
We'll see the 2012 Ram Laramie Limited in Chicago next month, and it will hit showrooms in the second quarter of this year.
