Not only is RAM Trucks Australia smashing its sales numbers (up 85.2 per cent year on year), but they’re also bringing a new model down under. The RAM 1500 Laramie Sport represents its latest full-size pick-up truck.
Built off the class-leading Laramie platform, the Sport edition blends a modern intuitive interior with a ruggedly striking exterior. Outside, the there’s colour-coded bumpers, grille and mirrors, and fresh design 20-inch alloy wheels.
It also comes standard with the innovative and useful RamBox cargo management system on both sides of the tub – ideal for easy access to tools or fill with ice for your own portable esky (bungs included).
Inside, the Laramie Sport features black headlining and black carbon fibre-effect dash inserts, and a host of new safety and convenience features, including a 12.0-inch digital gauge driver’s cluster with full-colour 3D graphics.
Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, forward collision warning with active braking, a 360-degree surround view camera, parallel/perpendicular park assist, LaneSense lane departing warning and adaptive cruise control are also included.
Front and rear ParkSense park assist and a ParkView rear back-up camera complete the package. Like its siblings, it’s powered by the iconic 5.7-litre V8 HEMI engine, delivering 291kW and 556Nm through a silky-smooth 8-speed gearbox.
This powertrain features eTorque technology, creating a mild hybrid system which assists the fuel-saving cylinder deactivation and stop/start functions. As an added bonus, up to 4.5-tonne maximum braked towing capacity is available.
Available in three colours, including Bright White, Diamond Black and Granite Crystal, it’s priced at $136,950 plus on-roads. To find out more, talk to your local RAM Trucks Australia dealer. If you’re keen on one and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
