I've always wanted a Sport with the Laramie interior trim....now here it is a year after I bought mine! I love it! Sure hope it's around when it's time to retire big red cause that's my next truck!





God do I want this truck!!!!The wife can have Big Red and the Limited for me :D

The 2012 Ram Laramie Limited package is available in Crew Cab and Mega Cab configurations of the 1500, 2500 and 3500 with either two or four wheel drive, a short or long wheelbase and the single or dual rear wheel for HD models. We can expect the Laramie Limited to hit showrooms in the second quarter of 2012 with pricing to follow the formal debut at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show.

Auto Show opens February 8th for the News Media
Open to the public on the 10th through the 19th

Im confused here ? I have a Laramie LONGHORN 2011, fully loaded. It is an upgrade to the Laramie, basically a Laramie with a upgraded leather interior package(longhorn badges everywhere)

So is this a limited truck a Laramie or a sport with Laramie package ? if so the what is difference between sport and Laramie ?

Laramie longhorns have pretty extreme western Texan styling combined with luxury..laramie limiteds will have the same level of luxury with none of that cowboy stuff :D I look at it as a sport and Laramie combo..I think it looks better than the sport!

Ramrt nailed it, the limited is pretty much a perfect blend of a Sport and Laramie. I've always wanted a Laramie with a sport front end....now its here. A fully loaded Sport still doesn't have as many options as a Laramie. You can't get the following in a Sport, heated rear seats, full leather interior, memory seats, or the cast wheels. The sport also lacks some of the interior detailing of the Laramie.

No i did not get the texas cowboy stiching . Mine has a red/brown interion with out it.

I was looking at the pictures, I guess the sport has the regular cab 4 door, where as laramie has 4 doors with bigger back doors.

There is no difference in the frame and body on these trucks. The quad cab has the same dimensions regardless of trim level. The crew cab has the same dimensions regardless of trim level. What separates the trucks SLT to Sport to Laramie is the trim level. Be it fender flares to audio to leather interior.

a question I have had for a while is why do some sports have the chrome grille and others have a colour matched grille?

The 09's and early 10's came with chrome grill with the honeycomb inserts. Late 10's, 11's appeared with color matched grill and horizontal chrome inserts, and I think the 12's are still coming this way.

so in 09 and 10, the chrome grill was an option over or under the colour matched? because most 4th gen sports including 9's and 10's have the colour matched?!? too many options LOL

I'm not sure how it worked. When I started shopping for my sport I did notice that dodge.com showed the sports all with chrome grills and dodge.ca showed all the sports with the colour matched grills. I don't know exactly when it changed or if it was an option but when I factory ordered mine there were no grill options for the Sport. Just the upgrade for the sport hood.

I havent been on dodge.com but on dodge.ca there isnt an option that I have seen for a chrome vs. painted grill. Thanks for clearing it up Stump3r! you have been answering lots of my questions lately lol

I like that sporty white piping on the seat edges! I wish my Sport had that.

I'm intrested in this "Ram Laramie Limited editions receive remote LED lighting at the inside door handles and a full-length light that illuminates the truck’s multi-function lower map pockets, front and rear." I also read that the piping on the seats were gray not white.
