Expert Quotes:

The new Laramie Longhorn is ultra-luxurious.
Cars.com

The Ram provides plenty of standard and optional storage spaces.
Edmunds

The cheap plastic trim on top of the tailgate said adios after just three loads.
Popular Mechanics

The Ram bucks Chrysler's trend of 'cheaper is better' interior design with high quality materials, well thought-out ergonomics and seats fit for a king.
Autoblog

Ram Crew and Quad Cabs can seat up to six, the latter with a generous 40.3-inches of leg room for rear-seat passengers.
Automobile Magazine

Space doesn't necessarily equate to comfort, but the 2011 Ram's wide cabin makes space for real three-across seating on the standard bench. Models with the adjustable bucket seats are divided by a huge center console.

Three cab types are available: Regular, Quad, and Crew. The Quad cab equates to the variously-named "extended" cabs found at other truckmakers, while the Crew Cab is the longer four-door model. Complementing the three cab types are six trim levels: ST, SLT, Outdoorsman, Sport, Laramie, and Laramie Longhorn, though regional special-edition models are also available.

Crew Cab models' rear seats aren't the bolt-upright units you might expect, instead offering a nice recline. Leg and head room are abundant in back as well, though not in Quad Cab models. Under-floor storage bins supplement the optional, lockable Ram Box integrated into the fenders, and in general, there's plenty of storage space. Interior quality and feel are as good as or better than any other truck on the market.

The variety of truck beds available is important to commercial buyers. Regular-cab Rams can be had with 6.4-foot and 8-foot beds, while the Crew Cab models come with a 5.7-foot bed, and Quad Cabs offer a 6.4-foot bed.

Noise suppression is admirable on the 2011 Ram 1500, with both road and wind noise held to very low levels for the full-size pickup class.

Conclusion

The 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 wraps passengers in ample room, with enough build quality and flexibility for just about any truck owner.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
