Which 1500 does Edmunds suggest?
Regardless of the trim, the Ram 1500 is an extraordinary clear record to start assembling your fantasy truck. To benefit as much as possible from its numerous luxuries at a sensible cost, pick the Laramie for its gigantic jump in standard gear. A 8.4-inch touchscreen, warmed and ventilated front seats, and access to highlights that aren’t accessible on the Tradesman and the Big Horn put it over the top.
