The 2011 Ram Laramie Longhorn

The Ram brand has long offered their luxury-level Laramie trim but
for 2011, they raise the bar on luxury pickups with the Laramie
Longhorn.  Available as a 1500, 2500 or 3500, the Laramie Longhorn
package adds luxury like no other truck on the market to the Ram lineup
and when equipped to the heavy duty models, the 2500 and 3500 Laramie
Longhorn is unlike any work truck ever offered.

The exterior additions to the 2011 Ram Laramie Longhorn are subtle
but the beauty of this package is that it is available on any model and
rear-wheel configuration so whether you are buying a Hemi-powered rear
wheel drive 1500 Club Cab or a Cummins-powered 3500 with dual rear
wheels, this Western-themed high end luxury package is available.  The
Laramie Longhorn is available in five colors, all including the White
Gold lower trim: Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl, Bright White Clear Coat,
Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl, Rugged Brown Pearl and Sagebrush Pearl
Coat (an exclusive choice for the Laramie Longhorn).  Painted bumpers
with matching molded running boards and the massive Laramie Longhorn
model-specific chrome badges are the only items that set this luxury
model apart from the non-Longhorn edition Ram trucks but once you open
the door – the difference is immediately very obvious.

The “preferred” interior package for the 2011 Ram Laramie Longhorn
includes bark brown and light pebble beige interior colors with
laser-etched bolsters sporting some very authentic looking detail.  All
of the seating surfaces are genuine leather and that extends to the
shift knobs, door panels and steering wheel, which also all receive
detail stitch-work.  If the laser-etched seats are a little too western
for your taste, you can also pick the dark slate grey and russet
interior package, which excludes the etching but regardless of which
interior trim is chosen, the Laramie Longhorn edition includes the
unique embroidered Longhorn badge on the seat-backs and center console

To bolster the luxury feel there is tons of added chrome and wood
trim around the interior, from the dash to the door panels and the
seat-backs feature map pockets with chrome western-style flaps, giving
them a saddlebag appearance.  Ram even did some planning for the floor
of the Laramie Longhorn with special floor mats that include a carpeted
portion that snaps out for cleaning and another (chrome) version of the
special Longhorn badge.  The center stack is finished in real wood,
stained to compliment the interior package chosen and a top of the line
sound system controlled by a large touch screen comes in all 2011 Ram
Laramie Longhorn trucks.

In addition to all of these special additions to the Laramie Longhorn
over the standard Laramie, the 2011 Longhorn edition comes with all of
the basic goodies that come on the non-Longhorn edition 2011 Ram
trucks.  Check out for more information on the new high
end luxury trimline of the Ram brand.
