Our colleagues on Ram Zone (the official blog of Ram Trucks) recently published a two-part deep dive on the various trim levels available for the Ram 1500. With their permission we reposted Part I in the series earlier this month. Here, again with their permission, is Part II in the series, which originally appeared on RamZone on October 6, 2016. Please enjoy.
The 2016 Ram 1500 is a flat-out workhouse, designed to get the job done and engineered for dependability. Best of all, the Ram 1500 is a singular tool designed to master every job, with a variety of trim levels so you can tailor your truck to your specific needs. Whether you’re using it as a daily driver, your day-in-day-out workhorse or to tackle weekend adventures, the Ram 1500 does it all.
In this second of two installments, RamZone is taking a closer look at the Ram 1500 Rebel, Laramie, Longhorn and Limited, to help you get a better sense of how Ram Trucks are built from the ground up, just for you. In the first installment of our trim-level breakdown we took a closer look at the Ram 1500 Tradesman, Express, SLT, Big Horn/Lone Star and Sport.
