Default Differences between 2010 and 2011

Are there any major differnces between the 2010 Ram 1500 and the 2011? Any major safety features or improvements I should be aware of?

if you tow, the 2011 brake controller works better

things to look for in both

get a Ram with a TOUCH SCREEN radio with ALL the features installed & connected, not one that the sales person tells you that it is Bluetooth READY, or Uconnect READY, make them show you that it works by demonstrating it

get a Ram that already has REMOTE START & a Security System, if they tell you that you can have either a stock Dodge system or a VIPER system, take the VIPER

hopefully the Ram will have the Park Sense rear bumper sensors
maybe even a Park View rear camera

things to be AWARE of
the Chrome bumpers are rusting on both years

GTyankee,

Do those options only come on the Lariat or can you get them on the SLT? What are the options to chrome bumpers?

i have all of them on my SLT

i also have the front bucket seats with a full floor console
it also has a painted rear bumper & a plastic hood & front bumper


another thing that you need to figure out is the drive train
small V-8 or Hemi V-8

will you be towing, hauling, showing off at take off , off roading?? get a 3.92 rear Limited Slip differential
are you the type that may once in a while drive down a dirt road & spend most of your driving time do the speed limit?? get the 3.55 rear differential
or are you a person that never does anything but, drive down the highway to the store & rather spend your money on groceries than always filling up with gas? get the 3.21 differential

now if your always off roading, think about a 4X4 with 3.92s or 4.11s

Yeh, that's right... all you will be able to do with 3.21's is drive to the store. Lol!!!

The only 'Major' difference I can find between the 2010 and 2011, is you cannot order a 2010. You would have to take what's on the lot.

The emblem on the gate is a little different....lol.

Hemi, 392's (with posi), upgraded stereo with voice command (very cool), and if your looking at 4x4, try for the one with the 4th option of "Auto" this way your only in 4x4 when you need it.

I have the chrome bumpers...no rust so far.
