Following the introduction of the 2019 RAM 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty in Detroit, we now get to see the flagship Laramie Longhorn luxury version in full detail.
The new RAM HD Laramie Longhorn wants to set the benchmark for premium full-size pickup trucks and it does so with layers of expensive materials inside its cabin.
“The new Ram Heavy Duty sets benchmarks in HD capability, ride and handling, luxury, materials, innovation and technology, extending well past any competitive offerings,” said Reid Bigland, head of Ram brand.
“The Laramie Longhorn is filled with more craftsman-like details, including wood surfaces and 100 percent full-grain leather seats, than any other truck in the segment. Yet as hardworking heavy-duty trucks, the Ram 2500 and 3500 give maximum effort all day, every day with confidence,” Bigland added.
The theme in the cabin is described as ‘Southwestern’, and the wood, metal and leather surfaces you come across are all authentic. The dashboard is hand-wrapped in 100-percent full-grain leather, as well as the door cards and armrests.
The interior also features satin-chrome accents with a brushed-nickel metal badge sitting flush with the console lid while real barn-wood accents are also present. Other interior features include ambient lighting, a 12-inch Uconnect infotainment system and heated rear seats as standard on the Laramie Longhorn.
The exterior of the range-topping 2019 RAM HD is distinguished by the chrome-slat grille and header that surrounds the LED headlights, the chrome bumpers and side steps, as well as new 20-inch alloy wheel designs offered in a variety of finishes.
Combine this with the colossal power coming from the new 6.7-liter Cummings straight-six diesel engine at 400hp and 1,000lb-ft (1,351Nm) of torque and you get a pretty compelling package.The same engine is also offered with 370hp and 850lb-ft (1,151Nm) of torque, while the 410hp 6.4-liter Hemi V8 acts as the default option. Towing capacity is rated at 35,100 lbs (14,288kg) in the RAM HD 3500.
