RAM 1500 Laramie Sport – Its no secret that I like the bigger American style Pick-up trucks, so when the opportunity came to drive the latest RAM 1500 Laramie Sport, I grabbed it.
The Laramie Sport adds layers of features such as colour coded bumpers, grill, and mirrors, and 20-inch alloy wheels. It also comes standard with the clever RamBox style tub with side lockable partitions.
Inside its particularly comfortable with room for five adults in comfort. The Sport comes with a 12-inch digital drivers instrument cluster, surround cameras, additional safety features and adaptive cruise control.
All RAM 1500 pickup trucks are powered by the 5.7-litre V8 HEMI® engine, delivering 291kW and 556Nm through a silky-smooth 8-speed gearbox. This now comes with eTorque technology creating a mild hybrid system for better fuel economy. It wasn’t too bad. We got it down to around 10L/100 on the motorway and around 13l/100k in the urban areas.
The RAM also comes with a dual range 4WD system and up to 4.5T towing capacity.
As an outback touring or towing vehicle there is a lot of plus points for this truck. Its also well priced against some more traditional 4WD at $136,950 plus the usual costs.
The RAM 1500 Laramie Sport is a different choice for buyers rather than a LandCruiser, Defender or Patrol

Final thoughts Ram 1500 Laramie Sport
There must be a reason to buy the RAM 1500 Laramie Sport.
You want to tow something big. Or you want a practical 4WD for a large family.
Or, like me you simply love this style of pick-up truck and want one.
When you consider what you will pay for a large 4WD like a Toyota LandCruiser GR Sport, or Land Rover Defender, then the purchase price becomes good value by comparison.
Even large premium SUVs start to pale in comparison.
The RAM 1500 Laramie Sport has everything they have plus more for similar price.
