Ram

The list of trims within any given truck model always seems endless.

Well, Ram is adding one more trim for its 1500 Laramie and Rebel models.

The G/T trim adds cold-air intake, cold-end exhaust, paddle shifters, performance pages (shows data such as 0-60 times), metal pedals, specific front bucket seats with extra bolstering, all-weather floor mats from Mopar, and a console-mounted floor shifter.

Ram

The trim will be available on Crew Cab trucks with the 5.7-liter V8 that has a mild-hybrid setup and makes 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.

Ram

Base Laramie G/Ts will start at $55,480 and the Rebel G/T will base at $55,375. Those prices don’t include the $1,695 destination fee.

Ram

It’s just one more trim, and one more way for Ram to make some money. Yet we can’t imagine a few subtle tweaks hurt performance.

    What are “performance pages” – something in the owner’s manual?

      They’re extra data for measuring performance — think 0-60 times, that sort of thing — usually found on SRT models. I figured most folks here knew what they are, I can add detail if I was wrong about that.

      On the center screen you can hit a tab which brings up a plethora of customizable data. Yes 0-60, acceleration in g’s, program in launch rpm if it has launch mode, hp, torque, etc. The TRX has ride height and info about how much torque is being split, pitch, roll, yaw, it goes on.

          How does it feel to be sick with Russophobia? You are not afraid to live in Canada, where Rus Vikings were among the first to settle?

            Accusing opponents of the murderous Putin or Xi regimes of being “Russophobic” or “Sinophobic” is the oldest trick in the book, and still wrong.

            It’s hard not to love Russia, with the depth of its history and culture. As a classical musician, I think Tchaikovsky may be the most underrated ccomposer. But there is no reason this amazing country needs to be led by a kleptocratic mobster thug.

            dal,

            this is blatant propaganda.
            Do you know that Nemtsov’s killers are found and they are Chechen terrorists who had beef wit this guy. Berezovskiy died in London and even British had no evidence it wasn’t suicide. BTW, falling from grace and out of money, Berezovskiy had depression and this is a fact.
            I don’t know much of the next case but it is sighting “Novaya Gazeta” – this in itself a paid propaganda. You don’t understand that these people investigated corrupt politicians, not necessarily Putin. They had more enemies than you can imagine. Putin could always use FSB to find their faults and have them jailed, extremely human.
            “Sergei Magnitsky died in police custody…” – So did Epstein. “arrested after uncovering evidence suggesting that police officials were behind the fraud” – how is this related to Putin? Putin does not follow every police officer and fires police generals regularly.
            “Natalya Estemirova was a journalist who investigated abductions and murders that had become commonplace in Chechnya” – how this is related to Putin? Recently, this year, Chechen dude decapitated a teacher in France. Is it also Putin?
            Politkovskaya – this is Chechens. What is not clear? In fact 5 were jailed. Great Russian 18th century poet wrote – “If you come to Chechnya with your rules, you will never leave this land.”

            Litvinenko – oh boy. All British investigators reported – “it is possible that Putin ordered Litvinenko”. Ok. Now we have to go back to Berezovskiy, who was bad bad actor. And Litvinenko worked for him. Litvinenko’s father: ‘Berezovsky killed my son’. You need to understand the things Berezovskiy did. Like selling weapons to Chechen terrorists. Berezovskiy had his people in FSB, those that Putin had been firing and firing, and firing.

            Basically, non of what this post was about had ANY evidence or international investigation conclusions. All these are “probably”, “likely”… This is all propaganda. There is a war going on and all measure will be used.

            thanks for offering to give me “some sense” about Russia, Ukraine, etc by someone who knows ZERO factual information, understanding of culture, traditions and true history. Not the one presented to you in America.
            At least Dal to my surprise thinks that Tchaikovsky is underrated. I don’t know why he thinks this. To me it seem like Tchaikovsky is up there. Even woke people are into it. The new Swan Lake in America is now featuring a black swan. Nutcracker is another popular ballet I can hear on TV a lot.

            LOL. The bait still stinks and um where did I say anything in this thread that was “Russiaphobic”?

            I asked “This will be sold in Russia?”

            As far as “Rus vikings”

            “The Rus (Old East Slavic: Рѹсь, Old Norse: Garðar) are an ethnic group in that formed the Kievan Rus. They were originally Norse people, mainly originating from Sweden. These Norsemen merged and assimilated with Slavic, Baltic, and Finnic tribes.”

            Now run along and polish your collection of Putin action figures.

            @FreedMike – most of what he thinks he knows about the west comes from the Rush Limbaugh wing of the Saint Petersburg Troll library. The rest from the propaganda wing of the same library.

            If Putin did them (or some of them), he’s murderous, just like I said. If he just stood by and watched as all of that happened, like you improbably suggested, then he’s a hostage of the mob in his own country. Doesn’t look good either way.

            dal,

            nobody understands what Chechnya is. Putin has no control of that region even today. You need to clearly understand this. This region is populated by very specific people. Russia has no control over them. Kadyrov is their leader and son of previous leader. He is not even a vassal of Moscow but rather a warlord like Mamai was for Golden Horde. Only Mongols could tell Mamai – hey go collect debt and keep 50%. A little different here. Kadyrov collects money from Moscow for his loyalty. After the war Putin totally rebuilt Chechen cities, you wouldn’t even know that war happened but it was like Dresden there. Kadyrov is in-charge of everything and he is elected with the same principle as election of Iranian ayatollah – everybody for him. There is no other choice. But Kadyrov is controlling movements through Caucasus mountains and no ISIS or Taliban can pass there – this is the product that he sells to Russia.

            Putin is a normal president who does his corruption just like everybody else, only better. Panama papers had nothing on him. Take a look at Sarkozy-Lybia-Kaddafi case. Putin is not more murderous than any US president. He is painted badly in US and the west only due to a political war. After all, Russia is not surrendering to globalization and controls its own resources, a reversal from before Putin. Western powers don’t like it. They think that when Putin leaves, the road to pro-west leaders will be open in Russia. But I give you 90% chance than after Putin, next guy will be even more strongly opposing to the West.

            Let me get this straight: you’re trying to *defend* your guy by saying that he pays off brutal warlords and has no choice but to look the other way as mob rule with no human rights consumes a region of his country?

            Doesn’t sound much different than if Lincoln had decided to pay off Jeff Davis and look the other way as the Confederate Army rampaged through the South enforcing slavery at gunpoint. Fortunately, instead Lincoln decided to try to set things right in the breakaway South, although the ball he set in motion still hasn’t finished rolling 160 years later.

            (And, of course, Putin might have more resources to do such things if he hadn’t diverted them all into Zurich-based bank accounts and his awful Black Sea palace.)

            dal,

            not different from US. US came to Afghanistan to destroy Taliban. The end product is 20 years of nothing happened and US goes home and Taliban will still be there. US signed all sorts of papers with Taliban they were supposed to crash, and free Afghanistan of.

            Chechnya is same thing. And as long as western mind does not understand it, and may never will, you will come back with these analogies. These analogies may be working when same minded people fight. Half of France lived under Hitler-friendly Vichy government and helped German war machine instead of fighting it. Russians fought to death. And Russians now understand Chechnya and Taliban. And they understand that if they will not work with Chechens, they will fight with ISIS.

            “Not born that man
            who can fill mountains with coffins
            who can move Kazbek with his hand
            who can enslave Chechens”

          Dude,

          What are you saying.. some gibberish. Rus had access to the sea via what currently Poland and Baltic states. And they already mixed with Vikings. And that was well before 11th century when Vikings came to North America. Russian Rurikid dynasty was a viking dynasty deriving from Rurik. Rurik ruled in Rus in Novgorod 862–879. Dude, Russians had their boots in Canada before Columbus came close to Caribbean. Run

    It looks like what every other manufacturer does, and make their vehicle ‘look’ faster without actually making it faster. I would have liked to see them stick the 392 in the 1500, be like a baby TRX.

    That said, aren’t prices for the G/T about the same as for a 2500 with the aforementioned 392?

    • 0 avatar
      dal20402

      A 2500 with the 392 is so much heavier that it won’t be much, if any, faster than the G/T. It’s also a lot less comfortable when you’re not towing or hauling a heavy payload.

    I’m sure this has been discussed to death long before I signed up here, but I am at a loss as to why anyone would want paddle shifters on a street vehicle.*

    Trying to shift while turning is just so damn awkward as your hands are only sometimes in the right position on the wheel to hit the paddles.

    The no-drama commuter car in our carport is a base model Kia Optima, and when in “manual mode” you shift by flicking the console shifter itself forward and back. So much smoother and more natural for anyone who has many years of three-pedal driving muscle memory.

    * paddle shifters are probably fine on open-wheel racers with steering yokes that are what, 150 degrees lock to lock, and the paddles are as big as the whole side of the yoke.

      They are nice when towing and you don’t have a proper manual transmission or a PRND87654321 for the automatic.

      It works the same as your Kia and older Mopar vehicles, just is on the wheel instead of the floor.

        Have you towed with a truck that has the “tow-haul” mode engaged? You do not need paddle shifters when using this feature. The electronically controlled transmission does exactly what it’s programmed to do-inc. automatically down shifting when it detects you are trying to slow down. The “tow-haul” mode is great!

      I feel you, Nigel. I have a ’19 Camry that has both paddles and a manually operated console shifter. I never use the paddles – if I need/want to shift myself, I just use the console shifter. It’s pretty decent, certainly better than normal auto mode, but it’s still a Toyota automatic…

      Speaking strictly for myself, I will sometimes use the flappy paddle in my Mazda to preload 2nd gear going into a turn onto the freeway. Since I don’t knock it into full manual mode, I give it the beans and the car takes over after I’ve turned.

      There are times when the Mazda transmission stumbles a little bit. It’s a nitpick to be sure, since the rest of the car is generally really good. The flappy paddles ameliorate some of the problems.

      I’m not sure if other manufacturers do this, but Mazda has a full manual mode, where the car won’t intervene generally, and they have “direct mode” which is a temporary mode for on the fly manual shifting.

      Nigel,

      Puzzled. Honestly, where are your hands at 90 or 100 degrees? That’s a fairly sharp, low speed turn with little need for shifting in it, if at all. Anyway, shouldn’t gear changes happen before or after the meat of the turn or apex?

    Too bad they didn’t lower it and go full street / muscle truck mode. Love the monochrome look.
