The Laramie Sport becomes the second-most expensive 1500 variant for Australia, with V8 power to remain
Ram Trucks has officially introduced a new 1500 model to its range in Australia, and it will be called the Laramie Sport.
Described as a ute “built off the class-leading Laramie platform” that “blends a modern intuitive interior with a ruggedly striking exterior”, the Laramie Sport will be priced from $136,950 before on-road costs.
Powered by an existing 5.7-litre Hemi naturally-aspirated V8 petrol engine with outputs of 291kW/556Nm, the Laramie Sport will sit below the flagship supercharged TRX.
This engine also features mild-hybrid assistance, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission and cylinder deactivation.
The Ram 1500 Laramie Sport is available to buy now from 68 dealerships across Australia and joins a range of 1500 products, including the Warlock, Express and TRX nameplates.
Standard equipment for the Laramie Sport includes 20-inch alloy wheels, the Rambox cargo management system, black headlining, carbon-fibre dash inserts and a 12.0-inch digital instrument cluster.
Also included is a 12.0-inch centre touchscreen, a Harman Kardon sound system, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated outboard rear seats and a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Safety features include the following:
The Laramie Sport is capable of towing up to 4.5 tonnes braked.
All prices listed are before on-road costs.
