Ram 1500 2023: new Laramie Sport to sit below TRX in refreshed 1500 range in Australia


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
