We drove a $69,000 RAM 1500 pickup truck that rivals Chevy Silverado and Ford F-150 - here are its coolest features
- The 2019 RAM 1500 is the truckmaker's all-new entry in the full-size pickup wars, taking on the mighty Ford F-150 and the Chevy Silverado.
- The RAM 1500 I reviewed came in a "Laramie Longhorn" edition with a stout Hemi V8.
- This luxurious pickup was also packed with cool features.
The all-new RAM 1500 pickup truck recently triumphed in a faceoff against another newcomer to the ultra-competitive US scene: the equally all-new Chevy Silverado.(In case you were wondering, the mighty Ford F-150 was redesigned a few years back, and we haven't checked it out since then, so stay tuned.)
In my rundown of the RAM's advantages, I noted that we tested a flashy, upmarket "Laramie Longhorn" edition, more than $10,000 costlier than the Chevy. But I also noted that the RAM 1500 is the best pickup I've driven in quite a while.
Because our tester was extremely well-equipped, verging on a luxury vehicle, it was packed with cool goodies. I played around with all of them. Pickups are already a cornucopia of extras - that's why the automakers can make so much money on them - but our Longhorn RAM 1500 took the matter to a different level.
Here's a rundown of all the awesome features.
