Ram Hosts Giant Dallas-area Laramie Longhorn Dealer Drive-away Event

  • Four hundred Ram 1500 and Heavy Duty Laramie Longhorn pickups gather at the Gaylord Texan Resort Hotel & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas
  • New 2017 Laramie Longhorn luxury models now arriving at Ram Truck dealerships across the southwest
  • Ram Laramie Longhorn named Texas Auto Writers Association Luxury Pickup Truck of Texas
  • Longhorn offers capability with unmatched materials and finishes
November 15, 2016 , Grapevine, Texas - To celebrate the Texas Auto Writers Association award for Luxury Pickup Truck of Texas, more than 400 Ram dealers from across the southwest converged on the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and as a result will be among the first to deliver the updated 2017 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn to customers looking for the ultimate definition of a luxury truck.
 
Ram hosted the massive one-day vehicle-delivery event to further build dealer and consumer interest in America’s largest pickup market. In fact, nearly twice as many pickup trucks are sold in Texas as the next highest volume state.
 
The Ram Laramie Longhorn was designed specifically for Texas and southwestern buyers looking for a luxurious, capable and fuel-efficient truck. Using the finest materials and finishes, Laramie Longhorn holds the coveted title as most luxurious pickup in Texas.
 
The Ram’s Laramie Longhorn’s award-winning interior is exceptional. The metal- and leather-work includes handmade appeal with an incredible attention to detail that’s unmatched in the industry.
 
For 2017, Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 Longhorn models have a refreshed exterior with a RAM-lettered bright chrome billet grille and chrome belt moldings. Heavy Duty Longhorn 4x4 models also feature improved ride with new Bilstein monotube shocks, enhancing their already best-in-class ride and handling.
 
About Ram Laramie Longhorn
The Ram Laramie Longhorn is layered with southwestern design iconography. Inside and out, Laramie Longhorn is loaded with remarkable features and design cues from traditionally handcrafted, time-tested wares, such as the antique pocket watch, a fine pair of hand-tooled leather cowboy boots or a horseman’s saddle. The Ram Laramie Longhorn’s metal work and leather work are second to none, surrounding the driver and passengers with real wood and leather.

Ram Longhorn models are distinguished externally by premium headlamps and tail lamps and unique wheels. Inside, Longhorn is trimmed in Walnut Burl inserts stained in Canyon Brown or Cattle Tan. Longhorn’s premium seating features Cattle Tan leather with Black welting/stitching or Canyon Brown/Frost Beige seats with or without premium leather filigrees. Front seats are heated and cooled, while rears are heated. Longhorn models also feature model-specific Uconnect Access and Multiview cluster screens, which complement the overall design theme.
