2018 RAM 1500 Laramie review: First Look! Around Streets in 20265 Washington DC

Category: DODGE Ram 16 0

Latest Dodge RAM – 2018 RAM 1500 Laramie review: First Look! – 20265 Washington DC Jan 2018.

You don’t need to be Einstein to work out Australians have gone dual-cab crazy. Sailing atop the sales charts, the HiLux and Ranger continue to sell in record numbers. And now, if you need something a little bigger – but not the biggest – another proper US truck has arrived: the 2018 Ram 1500. 

There is a newer model in the States – the 2019 is already on sale, and will be offered alongside this 2018 variant for a while – but we won’t be getting the latest one for the moment.

In either case, it’s important to note: the Ram 1500 isn’t a Dodge. Hasn’t been for almost a decade, in fact, but it is a full-size pickup truck from the US, and this one is converted here by experts. More than that, all Australia-bound examples are flagged as such before they even hit the production line.

There are some hints in the standard specification inclusions indicating this truck is destined for the Australian market from the outset. Trucks bound to come here get Australian compliant tail-lights, a metric driver display cluster, local radio frequencies and satellite navigation. 

You’ve seen the work ASV – American Special Vehicles – does with Ram 2500 and Ram 3500, and now it has turned its attention to the little brother, the Ram 1500. Read our pricing and specification breakdown for the full details, but in short pricing will start from $79,990 drive-away for the Express model, and $99,950 before on-road costs for the Laramie model with all the fruit. There are a few cost options like Ram storage boxes, but in the case of the Laramie grade, it’s a heavily-optioned standard offering from the get-go. At launch we tested the high-grade Laramie model.
