2021 Ram 1500 Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition Celebrates a Decade of Luxury
Over the past decade, the Ram brand has rolled out an impressive lineup of premium luxury pickups that are just as tough as the very non-plush trucks of the 1980s. The Laramie Longhorn has been one of the models that incorporates loads of high end features into the half ton truck and for 2021, Ram is celebrating that Southwestern-themed luxury package. Oddly, in commemorating the Laramie Longhorn, they are replacing it with the new Limited Longhorn trim level, which can up outfitted with the new 10th Anniversary Edition package.
“The new 2021 Ram 1500 Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition is a tip of the Stetson to 10 years as a stand-alone brand building the best trucks, featuring the ultimate combination of capability, luxury and refinement,” said Mike Koval Jr., Head of Ram Brand. “Truck buyers in this rarified air expect to see and feel the highest quality materials, and the Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition is another example of how we deliver the most luxurious pickups in the industry.”
Ultimately, this is just a new name for an existing luxury trim level, but the anniversary package is new for 2021. That being said, here is a look at what makes the Ram 1500 Limited Longhorn 10th Anniversary Edition unique from the rest of the fleet.
