RAM 1500 Laramie Edition Sticks With Straight Ahead Appeal

A couple of years back when the newest generation of the RAM 1500 pickups were blowing away the competition in feature by feature comparisons, the perennial 3rd place US light truck seller had a clear path to the number two spot in this lucrative segment.

With the challenging comeback from the pandemic … the whole unit counting game has changed as demand outstrips supply chain capacity, and the things that made the latest series RAM 1500 a market maker back in 2018 have been countered by competitors.

Though with a $73,000 sticker price the value equation is not what it used to be, the RAM 1500 sticks with that straight ahead appeal, even in the gussied up Laramie G/T Crew Cab edition.

For this former truck driver, the bold but not indulgently glamorous exterior and really spacious utilitarian yet premium interior are the scoring points. With all the latest tech upgrades and spec details like the coil spring suspension, this is the right pickup for work, off road play and daily driver use.
