special luxury trim. this includes shinny bumpers , wheel packages and other upgraded stuff for the rigs. heated power seats. tilt wheel better sound system.
I have a 01 SLT Laramie, and it does not have power seats, let alone heated seats. It also doesn't have the over-head display. I'm not sure it even came with a cd player because it had an after-market one in there when I got the truck. It also has just the bench seats.
there are three different trim levels for the slt. eack package deal offers something different. from the bottom line slt to the top.diff. interior, wheels ,rear gears. ,sound system. my slt. is loaded. only option i dont have is the infiniti system. have the wheel package, tow package, heated power seats, overhead console with entry to the house.

Well, I tell you a lot of folks take the standard luxuries in cars for granted, and I know this because I did, too...
While I see a lot of folks driving shiny p'ups like they're cars, I also see a lot of folks driving them as utility vehicles.
And really, most p-up trucks are utility vehicles...
I didn't find this out until I started having to use them, and not being but so fortunate, I take what I can get and unfortunately basic function takes priority over luxury because in my case it has to run good and solid, first.
My job in lawn care requires me to drive at least a 3/4 ton truck with a trailer hooked almost year-round.
It's not so bad when the temps are decent and it's not raining and you don't mind no radio.
And for the past 5 years I drove truck with no radio, no a/c, no nothing really.
Vinyl interior and bench seat, the heat worked and the wipers and turn signals and lights and horn, manual cranks for everything and good thing it had power steering and p-brakes, but other than that, I was soon educated that trucks generally are not all that nice and plush a ride
So, my '95 isn't all that in looks, evidently it, too, was used for work.
But the **** sure is one nice ride with all the loaded features: Power everything (windows, mirrors, locks), sliding rear window (yeah I don't think of that until August temps hit), A/C, cruise control, tilt steering, am/fm cass, cloth bucket front and cloth bench back seat, all kindsa gauges and a nice looking dash with cup-holders and little trays everywhere and a center console, too!
It's sooo quiet riding, too...
Other than for the stiff suspension and the obviously long and tall body that means it's still a work truck, I can actually fool myself into believing I'm riding in a nice car when the moment is right.
Ok, so the L means Luxury
p.s.: the message says 'in reply to' but that wasn't meant as such, it just happened lol
I don't really know. I haven't seen a very convincing answer to this anywhere. I'm guessing it doesn't really "mean" anything. Just a trim level or something. That doesn't seem very likely either, as there are so many variations.
