More luxury than you can shake a stick at

After a long day of riding hawses on the range and ropin’ dogies, a cowboy likes to kick his boots off and sit a spell. Well, Ram now has a pretty good place to relax. The new 2019 Ram 1500 is completely new, and with it comes a revised and upgraded version of the Laramie Longhorn trim.

The high-class Laramie Longhorn places second only to the Limited in Ram’s trim level lineup. The trim brings a two-tone paint scheme and 20-inch or optional 22-inch wheels to the outside and an interior filled with full-grain leather, real metal, and open-pore wood. Outside of a luxury sedan or SUV, the Ram’s new interior is about as swanky as it gets.

Interior equipment includes the new 12-inch Uconnect screen, an upgraded center console with covered storage bins, and seats that boast both heating and venting in all outboard positions. The 2019 Ram 1500 is the first pickup to offer vented rear seats. Ram’s rear seats also recline, too, for a completely relaxed ride. Legroom and headroom are nothing short of limousine level.

Smaller details include leather seatback pockets with metal buckles, brushed-nickel metal badges with the Laramie Longhorn logo, and a branded Laramie Longhorn logo seared into the passenger side’s wood dash trim. For the connected cowboys, the Ram has 4G LTE Wi-Fi, five USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM radio. A 360-degree camera system is also present. Once the sun goes down, the cabin floods with ambient light.

Like the other trim levels in the 2019 Ram 1500 lineup, the Laramie Longhorn’s available 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 can be had with the new mild hybrid system. The system replaces the alternator with a motor-generator and includes a 48-volt battery pack mounted to the cab’s rear bulkhead. During low-speed acceleration, the motor-generator helps turn the crankshaft via the accessory belt. Though it doesn’t help top-end power or torque, the system saves fuel at lower speeds and helps give the truck extra torque off the line. An upgraded eight-speed automatic comes standard and is controlled by an updated rotary shifter on the dash.

The 2019 Ram 1500 will go on sale by the end of Q1 2018. Prices have not been announced, but expect the Laramie Longhorn to increase in price over last years’ model, which held a base MSRP of $49,670.
