The Ram 1500 line of pickups raises the bar in 2013. The full-size truck packs in loads of innovations such as active-grill shutters, fuel-saving engines and available air suspension, helping it claim best-in-class fuel economy. It's also picked up tons of awards, including Motor Trend Truck of the Year, Texas Auto Writer's Association Truck of the Year [http: /www.texasautowriters.org/] and North American Truck of the Year. Few doubt that the Ram 1500 is a best truck for offroad, but this time we decided to drive the Laramie Longhorn model to see how well it works as a luxury pickup truck in the city. The Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Crew Cab [http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/ram_1500/#laramie/copperhead_pearl_coat/duo] is the most luxurious pickup that Ram offers.
