Full-size pickup trucks are the best-selling vehicles in the United States. It should be unsurprising, then, that this class is exceptionally competitive, with entrants presenting similar power, pricing, and capabilities. Standing out from the crowd is no easy feat, but the 2024 Ram 1500 manages to do just that with its notable refinement and comfort. Years ago, the automaker opted for a unique coil spring rear suspension that dramatically improved trailering control, handling, and most evidently, ride quality. It rides much more smoothly than rivals, especially when the bed is unloaded. 

In addition to the serene ride, the Ram 1500 also earns praise for its interior. The cabin benefits from a more pleasing design with more upscale materials in every trim. That said, higher trim levels can be downright luxurious. Its elegant ride and classy interior give it an advantage over newer challengers such as the Chevrolet Silverado and the Ford F-150.

Laramie Trim

Even though there are inexpensive, bare-bones trims available, for those customers who prefer a more sophisticated work truck, consider the Laramie: It incorporates features and options worthy of a high-end luxury SUV while maintaining the ability to haul, tow, and get filthy. The upgrades for the Laramie begin under the hood, where a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 is a superb option. 

Of note, the Laramie comes only as a Crew Cab trim with a five-foot-seven-inch or a six-foot-four-inch bed. According to sources, the Laramie “has two rows of seating and ample room for up to five people. Compared to the Quad Cab body style that’s offered in lower trims, the Crew Cab has larger rear doors and a more spacious rear bench seat.” Standard driver aids include automatic emergency braking and forward collision mitigation.

The Interior

It is worth noting that each trim has a distinct personality, ranging from plenty of gray-painted bits on the Tradesman through several chrome or color-matched areas working up the lineup. Inside, the Ram 1500 boasts arguably the best cabin in the pickup truck segment. For example, the dashboard has a no-nonsense look that works well, even with the tall touchscreen unit in higher-end trims. Upper-tier trims receive soft-touch materials and ample amounts of real leather as buyers spend more.

Indeed, there is a premium feel to the interior of the Laramie trim, with the seats, doors, and dashboard swathed in soft leather, suede, and leatherette trim, featuring prominent stitching elements. Additionally, there is even soft ambient lighting bathing the cabin. Building off the Big Horn, the Laramie adds eight-way heated and ventilated leather front seats with power lumbar support, power-folding mirrors with puddle lights, a power sliding rear window, dual-zone automatic climate control, and memory for the driver’s seat and mirrors. Also standard are two 115-volt outlets, an advanced keyless entry system that allows the doors to unlock simply by touching the handle, and power-adjustable pedals.

The Laramie is the first of the Ram trims to offer the Advanced Safety Group, adding automatic high-beam headlights, a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist. Meanwhile, the Technology Group includes a digital rearview mirror and a head-up display. The 2024 Ram 1500 also earns an overall safety rating of five out of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

With a starting price tag of $54,880 MSRP (Plus destination fee), the 2024 Ram 1500 Laramie offers a plethora of features while being cost-effective.
