The 2015 Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn trim level comes across as a range-topping workhorse with a host of advanced options inside and outside. The cabin has received a 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system, as well as upscale accents.
The new Dodge Ram comes with some extensive updates added to the seasoned Ram truck lineup. Most importantly, it features an updated powertrain, introducing new diesel powerplants, and the trademark cab configurations, including three bed lengths, and two- or four-wheel-drive setups.
Exterior and Interior
On the outside, the new 3500 Laramie Longhorn includes chrome accents along the rocker panels on the doors, the side steps, mirror caps, door handles, and 20-inch wheels. Also, the new grille marks a radical departure from the trademark Ram crosshairs affair. Capping off the exterior, the designers threw on a massive R-A-M badge along the tailgate.
The Ram’s fenders are huge, yet they look elegant enough, and are well-integrated into the prominent front. Towing mirrors are standard fare while the exterior mirrors turn 90 degrees to provide a larger viewing area, which really comes in handy while towing.
Inside, the cabin looks functional and rugged. The gauge cluster is updated and includes a black background with Liquid Graphite-faced gauges accented by Liquid Chrome rings. Standard features in the 2015 Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn list heated leather seats with power adjustment, power-adjustable pedals, the intuitive 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system, and more storage compartments than the last time.
The new Ram also offers safety features such as a backup camera to help with trailer hook-ups, in addition to an integrated trailer brake controller which is integrated with the truck’s ABS system.
The gauge cluster features clean lines with a functional layout while a steering wheel comes with the column-mounted gear shifter.
The 2015 Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn is outfitted with two powerful engines. The standard is a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 delivering up to 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque.
Also, the Ram offers an optional the optional 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 delivering 240 horses and a respectable 420 pound-feet of torque while earning an EPA-estimated 28 mpg highway. Equipped with this engine the Ram can tow upwards of 7,900 pounds.
Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic and can be had in both two- and four-wheel-drive setup.
There is also talk about a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8, and even the 6.7-liter Cummins inline six-cylinder turbodiesel making their way under the hood of the Heavy Duty versions.
