There are essentially six vehicles wrapped up in the Dodge Ram 1500. You may get a 5-foot-7, or a 6-foot-4 bed, and there is the choice of crew cab or quad cab. There are seven trim levels, including Tradesman, HFE, Big Horn, Rebel, Laramie, Longhorn and Limited. Each of those offers different things for different needs, whether you need a work truck, off road adventures or just a cool commuter. The Tradesman is a very basic work truck, but you can add some packages to get what you want. The HFE is like the Tradesman but has a smaller engine. The Big Horn adds some features that make it a nicer ride, and some that give it more capabilities. The Rebel is the sporty off-road option with all the features you need for that kind of adventure. The Laramie adds some technology like a rear electrical outlet and an 8.4 touchscreen. The Longhorn adds more luxury to the mix. The Limited is the luxury edition that will make you think you are in a nice car instead of a truck.
