Laramie

As the top-shelf trim level of the 2011 Ram 1500 lineup, the Laramie comes only in the four-door, six-passenger Quad Cab and even more spacious Crew Cab configurations. This full-size pickup could almost be considered luxurious, with leather upholstery, heated, power-adjustable front seats, power accessories, including heated outside mirrors and power-adjustable pedals, dual-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel and chrome and woodgrain interior accents all standard. Quad Cab trims sport a 6.4-foot bed, while Crew Cab versions carry a 5.6-foot bed, and all Laramie configurations boast 20-inch alloy wheels and a chrome bumper and grille. Other gizmos and gadgets standard on this high-end hauler include a universal remote garage door opener, cruise control, remote engine start, rear parking sensors, tilt-wheel steering and memory for driver’s settings, including audio controls. Entertainment and communications gear, meanwhile, consists of a 560-watt audio setup with an MP3-capable single-CD player and ten Alpine premium speakers, satellite radio, auxiliary iPod interface, a USB connection and Bluetooth hands-free communications technology.

Options for the 2011 Ram 1500 Laramie trim level include upgraded wheels, chrome side-steps, rear-seat DVD entertainment, a Garmin navigation system, UConnect audio and communications voice activation, a rear-view camera, the highly touted RamBox bed storage bins, a power sunroof and various axle ratios. For those Texans out there, the Lonestar sub-trim boasts pretty much all of the above, as well as skid plates, the Hemi V8, a Class III trailer hitch, an integrated trailer brake controller, all-terrain tires and chrome-tipped dual exhaust. That same trim is available to non-Texans as the Laramie Bighorn.

Safety features in the 2011 Ram 1500 Laramie lineup include four-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front side-mounted airbags, and front and rear head airbags, all standard. Further standard safety items include front fog/driving lights, turn-signal-integrated mirrors, and a remote antitheft alarm that comes with the remote engine start system.

Powering the 2011 Ram 1500 Laramie lineup (except for the Hemi-blessed Lonestar and Bighorn sub-trims), is the 310-hp 4.7-liter Flex Fuel (FFV) V8 and its accompanying 5-speed automatic transmission with brake hill holder. This combo throws down 407 lb-ft of torque and can trailer up to 7,650 pounds with the proper equipment. Mileage is estimated at 14 mpg city/19 highway in the standard rear-wheel-drive (RWD) configuration and 13/18 in 4WD-equipped trims. Should the ethanol-capable FFV V8 be too tepid, the Laramie can be delivered with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine paired with the ubiquitous 5-speed automatic, this time with the addition of a rear limited-slip differential. Towing with the Hemi V8 maxes out at 10,400 pounds in properly equipped RWD Laramie trims, and variable valve timing allows an estimated 14/20 in RWD trims and 13/19 in 4WD-equipped versions. Finally, the part-time, on-demand 4WD system available to the Laramie trim level is governed by electronic hi-lo gear selection and auto-locking hubs.

SLT

Step up a rung in comfort, power and utility and behold the 2011 Ram 1500 SLT. This well-wrought full-size pickup, like its ST siblings, is available in three-passenger Regular Cab, six-passenger Quad Cab and the spacious six-passenger Crew Cab versions. Though rear-wheel drive (RWD) is standard, the SLT is also available with part-time, on-demand four-wheel drive (4WD) and can be delivered with either the standard 6.4-foot bed with Regular and Quad Cab configurations, or an 8.2-foot bed in Regular Cab versions. Crew Cabs across the lineup come only with the 5.7-foot bed. Standard appearance features and creature comforts include 17-inch alloy wheels, trailer wiring, cloth upholstery, tilt-wheel steering, air conditioning and remote power door locks, as well as power windows and power heated mirrors. Cruise control is also standard with the SLT trim level, as is a single-CD player with six speakers and satellite radio.

Options for the 2011 Ram 1500 SLT include upgrades to the 4WD-only Outdoorsman versions in Quad and Crew Cab trims, with Regular Cab trim levels eligible for Tradesman and Express packages. The former include such goodies as 20-inch alloy wheels, the Hemi V8, skid plates, a 3.92:1 axle ratio and all-terrain tires, while the latter might include items such as remote engine start, a power driver’s seat, a universal remote garage door opener and upgraded, SLT-specific cabin trim. Standalone options include UConnect for voice-activated audio and Bluetooth-enabled communications, power-adjustable pedals, upgraded audio, rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, and the popular RamBox bed storage system with covered bins for added dry storage capability.

Standard safety features for the 2011 Ram 1500 SLT include four-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), dusk-sensing headlights and traction and stability control. Occupant protection equipment includes front side-mounted airbags, as well as front and, in Quad and Crew Cab versions, rear head airbags. Front fog/driving lights and turn-signal-integrated mirrors are optional safety features, as is a remote antitheft alarm.

Standard in the 2011 Ram 1500 SLT is a 4.7-liter Flex Fuel V8 engine and 5-speed automatic transmission with brake hill holder. This matchup throws down 310 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque, can tow up to 7,650 pounds and gets 14 mpg city/19 highway in RWD configurations, 13/18 in 4WD versions. Available to the SLT lineup in a number of packages is the 390-hp 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that uses the 5-speed automatic, again with the brake hill holder, as well as a limited-slip rear differential, to throw down 407 lb-ft of torque. All this muscle is good to tow up to 10,400 pounds of trailer, when properly equipped, and mileage is a fairly respectable 14/20 in RWD versions, 13/19 with 4WD trims. As is common across the Ram 1500 lineup, engines are equipped with a standard auxiliary transmission cooler, and SLT trims equipped with 4WD feature auto-locking hubs and electronic hi-lo gear selection.

ST

As the base trim level in a suddenly stellar lineup, the 2011 Ram 1500 ST holds its head high. This full-size pickup truck can be delivered in the three-passenger Regular Cab trim, the six-passenger Quad Cab trim, or the six-passenger Crew Cab version, and with either the standard 6.4-foot bed or the 8.2-foot bed in Regular and Quad cabs, while Crew Cab configurations mount the standard 5.7-foot bed. As well, all trims in the ST level come with standard rear-wheel drive (RWD) or with available part-time shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive (4WD). Standard features include 17-inch steel wheels, trailer wiring, vinyl upholstery, tilt-wheel steering and air conditioning. Entertainment is provided by a single-CD player with six speakers and auxiliary MP3 input, with phone pre-wiring also standard. Quad and Crew Cab trims also include standard power door locks, windows and heated outside mirrors.

Options for the ST include speed control, a spray-in bedliner, chrome side steps and bed rails, a Class IV trailer hitch and sliding rear window. Those ST trims equipped with one of the available V8 engines also are available with upgraded 17- or 20-inch alloy wheels and dual rear exhaust systems.

Safety features for the 2011 Ram 1500 ST trim level include four-wheel antilock brakes (ABS) as well as traction and stability control. Front side-mounted airbags and front and, in Quad and Crew Cab variations, rear head airbags help protect occupants, while a trailer brake control and front fog/driving lights are available with various packages or as standalone items.

The standard drivetrain for the 2011 Ram 1500 ST RWD Regular and Quad Cab trims is a 3.7-liter V6 engine and 4-speed automatic transmission with brake hill holder. This combo churns out 215 hp and 235 lb-ft of torque, can tow up to 3,750 pounds when properly equipped and gets an estimated 14 mpg city/20 highway. The ST Crew Cab and those that boast 4WD are delivered with a standard 310-hp 4.7-liter Flex Fuel V8 and 5-speed automatic transmission, again with the brake hill holder feature. Expect 330 lb-ft from this tidy V8 for a towing capacity of 7,650 pounds, though mileage drops to 14/19 in the RWD Crew Cab trim and 13/18 in 4WD STs. The 4WD Quad and Crew Cab ST versions are also available with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and 5-speed automatic transmission with both the brake hill holder and a limited-slip rear differential. This pairing nets 390 hp and 407 lb-ft of torque, tows up to 10,250 pounds and burns recommended 89-octane gas at a 13/19 clip. The part-time on-demand 4WD system available to the ST lineup stars electronic hi-lo gear selection and auto-locking hubs. Finally, an auxiliary transmission cooler is standard with all three powerplants.

Sport

Hemi-powered and high-steppin’, the 2011 Ram 1500 Sport ups the ante on the competition. This full-size pickup can be delivered with either the Regular Cab, with its accompanying two-passenger bucket-seat configuration and standard 6.4-foot bed, or in five-passenger Quad Cab and Crew Cab versions, also with front bucket seats, with the smaller Quad Cab sporting the 6.4-foot bed and the roomy Crew Cab Sport available with only the 5.7-foot bed. Additionally, all cab variants are available in either standard rear-wheel-drive configuration (RWD) or with available on-demand four-wheel drive (4WD).

Standard appearance features and cabin goodies include 20-inch alloy wheels and trailer wiring, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, tilt-wheel steering, cruise control, upgraded cabin accents and trim, air conditioning, remote power door locks, power windows and heated mirrors, and a universal remote garage door opener. Standard entertainment and communication comes via a single-CD player with six speakers, DVD-capable monitor, a USB connection, satellite radio and Bluetooth hands-free cell-phone technology.

Options for the 2011 Ram 1500 Sport include a premium 10-speaker audio system, dual-zone climate control, Garmin navigation, UConnect/Bluetooth voice-activation technology for audio and communications systems, leather-trimmed upholstery, power sunroof, a Class IV trailer hitch, integrated trailer brake controller, chrome side-steps and bed rails, and a spray-in bed liner, and, in Quad and Crew Cab versions, rear-seat DVD entertainment.

Standard safety features in the 2011 Ram 1500 Sport include four-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front side-mounted airbags, and front, and in Quad and Crew Cab versions, rear head airbags. Further standard safety items include front fog/driving lights, turn-signal-integrated mirrors and dusk-sensing headlights. Available safety equipment includes a remote antitheft alarm that comes with the remote-engine start option.

Powering all 2011 Ram 1500 Sport trims is a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 accompanied by the standard 5-speed transmission with brake hill holder and limited-slip rear differential. This combo puts out 390 hp and a hefty 407 lb-ft of torque, and will tow some 10,000 pounds with the proper equipment. Mileage is an estimated 14 mpg city/20 highway in RWD trims and 13/19 in 4WD trims. The Sport versions with part-time 4WD boast electronic hi-lo gear selection and auto-locking hubs, while an auxiliary transmission cooler is standard across the lineup.
