New to the Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 Heavy Duty lineup for 2011 is a Ram Laramie Longhorn Edition, which the brand calls the most luxurious Ram Truck ever. Also, the Ram Outdoorsman is a new model that brings off-road capability plus trailer-towing hardware together. A spray-in bedliner is newly available on the Ram HD trucks and a tire-pressure monitor is now standard on the Ram 2500, while an electronic brake controller is included in SLT, Outdoorsman, Power Wagon and Laramie models. New wheel options and interior colors have been introduced, and White Gold Metallic, Saddle Brown Pearl Coat, Sagebrush (Longhorn only) and Hunter Green Peal Coat and Deep Cherry Red Crustal Pearl Coat join the palette.
Tough, work-oriented construction; full set of luxury and entertainment options; serious towing and hauling ability; stump-pulling Cummins turbodiesel
The Ram 2500 and 3500 are heavy-duty trucks that sacrifice some ride quality and maneuverability, compared to lighter-duty pickups, in favor of improved towing and hauling ability. The heavy-duty Ram models are, like rival models from Chevrolet, GMC and Ford, far more luxurious and comfortable than their predecessors, even as they haven't given up any serious work ability. Entertainment and connectivity features abound and hint that these trucks see use well beyond the construction site. Ram says that the 2500 and 3500 are the first in their segment to offer an available ten-speaker surround-sound system, as well as a number of other premium options such as Sirius Backseat TV.
