The RAM 1500, made from a steel construction of high strength, fuel-efficient, and fitted for driving comfort, is a light-duty pickup of the full size that provides a smooth ride. As one of America's favorite pickup trucks, it offers power, strength, and durability in one complete package. 

If you think about it like your next vehicle, you have to look at its trim versions. There are seven – Tradesman, Big Horn, Rebel, Laramie, Laramie LongHorn, Limited, and the new TRX. Here, you can explore them. 

The base trim level of the RAM 1500 is the Tradesman, and it's the embodiment of what this pickup is all about. 

Within, you get everything to follow the trends and keep yourself entertained during the long rides with the Uconnect three in-car entertainment system with a 5-inch display. It also comes with Bluetooth wireless compatibility that allows you to make a hands-free phone when you’re behind the wheel.

When you park, the ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera is at your disposal. It delivers a clear rear vision of your truck and makes from your entertainment monitor a live video feed. This way you'll carefully parallel park or return to a parking space. This camera also allows you to combine your hitch with the trailer while the trailer-tow wiring with 4- and 7-pin connectors give the right tools for towing a ton.

The next trim level, the Big Horn trim adds some fashionable upgrades to the Ram 1500. Among these improvements, there is the steering wheel wrapped in leather and front fog lamps. Here you have a range of additional features, for example, an upgraded multimedia system. 

Moving up to the Rebel model, your Ram 1500 pickup gains the black-surround exclusive grill and the premium black wheel flares. As for the interior features, it has exclusive interior trim with accents of red and black color.

The manufacturers have substituted the front bench seat for two bucket seats in cloth or vinyl with a tire-tread pattern in the Rebel model. It gets more comfort with a driver's seat that you can program in twelve ways and the lumbar support of four-way adjustment. The Ram 1500 Rebel has improved towing capability with the Class IV hitch receiver and tow hooks.

If you're after more luxurious, then your choice is the Laramie version. It offers chrome accents, 22-inch wheels, and a stunning interior with leather upholstery. The Alpine nine-speaker premium audio system offers you a unique sound. A 7-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display comes with 3D, high-definition graphics so you can clearly see the instrumentation and numbers. 

The Laramie Longhorn is the first Ram 1500 trim level only available with the Crew Cab. It's the only Ram 1500 model that offers more legroom for the back passengers. When it comes to the interior, it provides exclusive leather trim and a classy wood interior treatment. This model will fit any weather condition with heated and ventilated front and rear seats. Whether needing extra help to get anywhere you want, you can combine your destination with the Uconnect 4C NAV system and get step-by-step instructions on your 8.4-inch touchscreen.

The Ram 1500 Limited is based on the other trim levels, plus some features. For example, inside you'll find the Limited-specific exclusive leather trim and wood interior treatment. You'll also get the front bucket seats wrapped in premium leather, and the steering wheel wrapped in leather and wood. 

The Limited has a standard Uconnect 4C NAV system and a 12-inch touchscreen display. To keep your gadgets energized, there is a charging pad without a wire. 

The Limited trim level is equipped with a system of blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-path and trailer detection when it comes to the features of protection. It warns you if a car in the next lane over is in your blind spot and when it's safe to change lanes.

For the 2021 model year, the manufacturers have launched the brand-new RAM trim level – the TRX. Built on the Limited trim, it's equipped with the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine with Bilstein adaptive dampers with remote reservoirs, 2-inch suspension lift, 35-inch all-terrain tires, advanced brakes, Dana 60 solid rear axle, electronic locking differential, five underbody skid plates, launch control and real-time access to performance data via the 12-inch screen.
