RE: What are the differences between SLT and Laramie
The 4.7 is not basiclly crap, its a good engine and likely produces more power than you will ever need. People don't need the Hemi, they want it. Big difference. The main difference is the leather interior and in the 1500 you can't order a Laramie with a manual trans. For '07 the Hemi will be standard in the Laramie. There is a number of smaller options that can be looked up in the sales literature or on the Dodge website.
