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.
