Default 2015 Black Ram Sport vs Black Ram Express

Whats the differences between the two?

I have an Express with the Black Ram Express package 26C and the 1500 Express group. 20" black wheels. sport tail lamps, bi-functional projector black headlamps, 'Hemi" badge delete black front grill, Black Rams head emblems front & rear. 5.7L Hemi, 8 speed, 3.21 rear axle.

I have power windows, carpet & floor mats as part of the package.

I have a photo of my window sticker in my gallery. http://www.ramforumz.com/album.php?albumid=4493

So can my truck be considered a Sport or not?

Sports Have:
The upgraded interior, center console, 8.4/ 7" combo, option all upgrades ie sunroof, heated seats and wheel
Body Color door handles and mirror caps
chrome slats in grille (even on black edition I believe)

Basically an express is a base model truck with an attractive exterior, which is a genius idea, many of my buddies have them and they're awesome trucks.

Sports are more or less towards the Laramie end of the trim scale minus all the chrome

Thanks for all the replies. Mine is a step up from the Tradesman with actual carpet, cloth seats and power windows. I really don't need leather or a heated steering wheel and I did not want a sunroof.

I guess other than the trim level the only other real difference between the Express and the Sport would be the lack of limited slip rear diff.

My buddy just picked up a 2015 express with limited slip. His 2012 also had it but she saw a telephone pole rather early on in her life. Limited slip is an option in both, I believe all trim levels come with open diff as standard equipment

Looking at my window sticker I see I have a 3.21 rear axle ratio but nothing about limited slip. Other than doing a smoky burnout (I'm waiting until after the first oil change), how can I tell?

If I crawl underneath will I find a tag on the rear diff?

There is a sticker on the rear axel it will have your gear ratio on it and it will have LSD on it if it has the LSD option. If your window sticker doesn't list it in the options you most likely do not have it.
P.S. my tradesman has cloth carpet and power windows.

Express has the part time transfer case. The sport has the full time (auto) transfer case.
