Sure, this rig is pricey, but we’re constantly amazed when we drive similarly priced luxury cars that don’t have heated steering wheels or backup cameras.
The crew cab also features in-floor storage near the second-row seats.
The RamBox also takes up the usable bed space underneath the rails. That may not be a big deal for the Ram owner that doesn't use his or her truck for work, but many use every square inch of their truck bed.
A booming 506-watt, 10-speaker stereo is offered, along with a rear-seat entertainment system.
Honestly, all of the big pickups have more capabilities than most folks will ever need, as well as the option to outfit them like luxury sedans. But the one that goes the extra yard is the 2011 Dodge Ram 1500.
Base-model Rams are available with almost no features--just stripped-down work trucks--but higher-end models add just about everything you'll find on any other Chrysler vehicle.
Working up from the AM radio and roll-up windows on the base Ram to the USB and Bluetooth-enabled, hard-drive-based music system and voice-activated navigation system available on higher end models, there's even a wireless Internet and TV option with Chrysler's Uconnect system.
Other available options include a DVD player for both front and rear seat passengers; steering-wheel-mounted radio controls; Sirius Satellite Radio; and in Laramie versions, finely detailed interiors with a range of exterior color options. An available R/T package adds 22-inch wheels and tires and a restyled front air dam.
With six trim levels to choose from, plus a wide range of equipment groups and a la carte options, you won't have trouble configuring the Ram 1500 to your liking. Stepping upward through the range, it's easy to quickly build the price as you add features, however: the top-of-the-line Laramie Longhorn costs more than twice as much as the base ST, but offers so many more features and amenities it's almost a different truck.
The 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 offers features-such as wireless Internet and TV-not found in many high-end luxury cars.
