Used Ram Laramie

Ram trucks are known for putting durability and rugged capability at the top of the feature list, but what some people may not know is that Ram also focuses on comfort and luxury as well with specific trims, such as the Laramie. If you've wanted to add the spice of luxury to your life, a used Ram Laramie is just what you need.

After branching the Ram trucks brand away from Dodge in 2010, Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (and now Stellantis) began honing in on the durability, ruggedness, and unmatched capabilities of the Ram pickup. Ram trucks picked up the well-earned reputation for being tough trucks with a lot of horsepower under the hood and plenty of torque between the axles. Pickup enthusiasts who wanted the power of a Hemi with the capabilities of a light (or heavy) duty pickup found themselves nestled in the arms of the Ram.

Ram Redefining the Standards of a Pickup

Ram trucks have been––and continue to be––made available in various formats, including a two-wheel, dual rear-wheel, and four-wheel drive configuration, along with sporting two-door and four-door cabs, ranging from Crew Cabs to Mega Cabs. And for commercial work, the stripped-down chassis cab continues to offer upfits for utilizing the Ram for all types of jobs.

The Hemi V8 has always been a standout feature of Ram trucks and continue to be a standout since Ram split from Dodge. A large 6.4-liter on the Ram 2500 and 3500 models consistently performs up to expectations, but a 408-cubic inch, 6.7-liter Cummins turbo-diesel has helped bolster the Ram 2500 and 3500's capabilities well beyond expectations. This includes a tow rating of up to 37,100 pounds when properly equipped.

The payload capacities have been steadily increasing over the years as well, with the more recent iterations of the Ram being capable of hauling up to 7,680 pounds in its bed. This not only made––and continues to make––the Ram one of the best at handling heavy-duty tasks, but it also makes it a great Crew Cab pickup for commutes and multi-person tasks, as well as an amazing vehicle for the family.

While all the talk has been about how well the Ram performs when it comes to heavy-duty workloads, trailering, and payload capacity, there's also the other side of the coin, where the truck has managed to strike a pristine balance between rugged and refined. Instead of simply having masculine trim lines dedicated to the hardships and tribulations of the outdoor lifestyle, there was also a level of respect paid to those who wanted luxury-adjacent features out of their pickup truck as well.

What Is the Laramie Trim?

2010 wasn't just a re-branding of the Ram series of pickup trucks; it also marked a change in the way the fourth generation introduced a line-up of trims. One of the new trim entries was none other than the Laramie. It was first made available as part of the Ram 3500 heavy-duty series. However, it wouldn't stay exclusive to the commercial line of heavy-duty pickups for long.

The popularity of the trim managed to branch off into its own luxury line for the Ram 1500 series for the 2013 model year. At the top end of the trim bracket, the Laramie stood head and shoulders above the others.

Synonymous with opulence, the Laramie included a number of accessories and components aimed at giving drivers quality over quantity, including optional 18 or 20-inch aluminum wheels, chestnut wood trimming, chrome door handles, and remote push-start with power locks.

For the interior, the Laramie trim has been known for having wood-themed coloring, hearkening to the rustic cabin-quality nature of its design. Laramie trims also come with an upscale interior, including leather upholstery, suede inserts, and accent stitching. Additionally, different model years and packages allow you to experience different color schemes for the top-tier pickup.

The word “luxury” isn't just thrown around for good measure, though. The Laramie really is a pickup with premier features, such as 10-way power front seats, automatic lights, heated and ventilated driver and front passenger seats, and heated 60/40 split rear seats, with reclining abilities. Rear storage, rear drink holders, and rear folding seats also come standard.

The Laramie and Laramie Longhorn also benefit from extended ride height along with automatic ride height adjustment while driving on the highway thanks to the air-ride suspension. Class-exclusive features such as the RamBox Cargo Management system is also included. The RamBox contains two water-sealed storage units on each side of the cargo bed, allowing you to place equipment, utilities, or supplies in the truck for safekeeping without occupying space inside the cabin, or facing weather hazards by laying out in the open in the cargo bed.

Later model year editions of the Laramie trims also come equipped with 4 or 7-pin trailer hitches in the rear, front tow hooks in the front, and adjustable trailer tow mirrors with blind-spot monitoring, parking assistance, and pre-collision warnings.

The Laramie trim is topped off with its signature chrome grille, Ram logo, and exclusive Laramie badging.

Which Ram Trucks Have the Laramie Trim?

Not just every iteration of the Ram grants you access to the Laramie and Laramie Longhorn trims. However, there are a range of Laramie trims available depending on what you're looking to use your Ram truck for.

For the Ram 1500 series, you can access the Laramie trim and all of the features it has to offer. For leisure, work, or basic travel purposes, the Ram 1500 series is the get-it-all-done truck with the option to dabble in the luxurious side of the pickup industry thanks to the Laramie trim.

If you're in construction or commercial work, the Ram 2500 and 3500 series offers you the ability to take advantage of the Ram Laramie and Laramie Longhorn Edition, complete with dually-compatible rear-wheel drive. This means that you not only have a powerful truck to wield, with maximum tow efficiency and a powerful engine to boot, but you also get all of the quality amenities that accompany the Laramie.

Since this trim is all about style and breadth, you also have access to large passenger volume for the interior, with either the Crew Cab or Mega Cab. The Laramie is only available with four-door configurations, but if you don't have use of the extra rear seats, you can always fold them up and take advantage of the additional interior space.

However, whether you're a pickup enthusiast, a Ram aficionado, looking for a family vehicle, or you're into commercial work, you can still upgrade your truck driving experience with the Laramie, no matter if you go with the Ram 1500, 2500, or 3500 series.
