Dodge offers 2011 Ram Laramie Longhorn edition
The aggressive Dodge Ram full-size pickup truck was redesigned a couple of years ago. Then parent company Chrysler went bankrupt, sort of got bought out by Fiat, who promptly decided to restructure the American firm by separating the Ram line-up from the rest of the Dodge range. Thus Ram is now a brand all on its own, although the vehicle is still essentially an unchanged Dodge Ram. The Ram Laramie is currently available in the UAE and some other GCC countries as an upscale truck for yuppies. And in the States, a Ram Laramie Longhorn special edition is now being offered.
The Ram Laramie Longhorn edition seems to be more of an add-on package than a real limited edition, being available on 1500, 2500 and even 3500 models. Features include golden-painted exterior trim, leather upholstery with golden piping and Longhorn stitching, real wood trim, lots of badges and most importantly, seatback pocket covers with belt-buckles.
The Longhorn edition will go on sale in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2011. Whether it will come to the Middle East officially is unknown.
