440HP 925lbs of torque.



Be careful you don't pull the frame out from under your trailer. Do you have to still pull off the cab on the 2017's to check the oil?

But you shouldn't be having to top off the oil every few thousand miles either. If I'm topping off def at a truckstop it's while I'm filling up too. Those hoses won't reach under the hood without moving the truck.

I looked at a Laramie at the coffee shop before going to the dealer, it was used in the oilfield, the dark interior leather really showed wear in a short period of time, I diecided then no Laramie for me, basically the SLT-BiG HORN was $ 10,000 less money, my 07 with cloth did just fine. Electric slider rear window,screen on dash, garmin,back up and hitch cameras, cd and other stuff I don't know about medium blue, left it at dealer to paint in bed liner and install the Long horn factory runningboards, they offered to give me a ride home,I told the manager he could give me a ride in that used challenger over there, he looked at me and said " no, you are going to ride in a new one, salesman showed up with one that had a scat- pack, real impressive, if I got rid of my model A's , maybe I would have one.....to go down for afternoon coffee break...

A fellow Mopar lover, LOL... Big Horn is good enough for me too (& I prefer the cloth seats anyway).

Congratulations to all of you folks with the new trucks but living in the humid side of the country at a minimum I would have to have the heated and cooled seats. My brothers truck has these and they are just awesome for long distance driving.

Totally agree. It's hot and humid in the summer and the ventilated seats help a lot. We have a few months of freezing weather and the heated seats and steering wheel are a nice touch.

I remember when having a heater in the car was an option! No air conditioning, either.

Ooooh... my heated steering wheel is the best thing since, since, since...,well since ever!
It all makes a difference but I want a heated wheel from now on!

I vote for the heated wheel as well. That could replace the chain on the wheels. I am living in Northern Canada (Quebec city). It could be -40F in the winter and +90 in the summer so due to my age I need everything that can produce heat in the winter including my darling and everything that can cool me down in the summer. If you buy a TV never hesitate to pay $5000.00 extra to get all the comfort options. You can have regrets only if you don't and I can tell you I have met a lot of people having regrets. Best regards to all and enjoy the winter. We will get snow this weekend.

This is definitely my approach. Esp if you are financing it the difference in payment is minimal. Get the truck you want because you'll probably be keeping it for a while.
