Some folks prefer to have a matching wardrobe, including when it comes to their vehicle. Ram is now making this a little easier for customers of the 2017 Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 Laramie Longhorn models because the new RV Match Brown two-tone paint lets buyers get a shade that complements a popular color on RV traveler trailers. The hue replaces White Gold in the available palette, and the dark color joins the lineup in the second quarter of 2017. 

The shade looks fantastic on the Ram. The brown hue outlines the bottom edge of the pickup. For the rest of the truck, customers can pick from Black Forest Green, Bright Silver, Bright White, Brilliant Black Crystal, Delmonico Red, Maximum Steel, Pearl White and True Blue. The wide selection should make a fairly easy job out of matching the truck to practically any trailer.

Ordering this two-tone combo also gets buyers a set of 20-inch polished aluminum wheels with brown pockets. The Ram 3500 with dual rear wheels has polished wheels with Laramie Longhorn center caps, instead.

The truck maker has a few other small upgrades ready for 2017 trucks in Laramie Longhorn trim. The front end now features a chrome billet port grille with Ram lettering. The 1500 Laramie Longhorn also gets standard Keyless Go, active high beam headlights, and rain sensing wipers. Meanwhile, the 2500 and 3500 in the Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited grades now get the 6.4-liter V8 as standard.

The Laramie Longhorn trim occupies practically the top spot in Ram's pickup lineup – just one rung below the range-topping Limited grade. Buyers get quite a luxurious interior, too. There’s a choice of Cattle Tan or Canyon Brown leather upholstery with Walnut Burl trim. Amenities include heated and cooled front seats, and warmed benches in the back.

March 22, 2017 , Dallas ­ Ram Truck today unveiled a new exterior color shade for its luxurious and capable Laramie Longhorn line of pickup trucks.

With more than 30,000 pounds of trailering capability, Ram Heavy Duty Laramie Longhorn editions have become a popular choice among buyers who rely on their truck to tow a camper or recreational vehicle. In fact, the new RV Match Brown was chosen to closely match or complement a shade of brown that is frequently used in the exterior design of RV travel trailers, including premium fifth­wheel models.

Ram Laramie Longhorn edition models are known for distinctive exterior badges. A chrome metal Laramie Longhorn edition badge with painted accents is mounted to the tailgate while eye­catching model­specific (1500, 2500 or 3500) Laramie Longhorn edition badges adorn the doors.

Ram’s RV Match Brown lower­body two­tone, wheel flares, painted front and rear bumpers and running boards complement a bright chrome grille and painted tow hooks.

Two­tone Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn editions are equipped with 20­inch polished aluminum wheels with brown­colored pockets, while monochromatic versions roll on polished silver aluminum wheels. Ram 2500 and 3500 (single rear wheel) models get 18­inch polished aluminum wheels with brown­ colored pockets, while monochromatic versions roll on polished silver aluminum wheels. Twenty­inch wheels are optional. Ram 3500 duallies get polished silver aluminum wheels with Laramie Longhorn edition­badged center caps.

RV Match Brown is available as a two­tone combination with nine exterior colors including Black Forest Green, Bright Silver, Bright White, Brilliant Black Crystal, Delmonico Red, Maximum Steel, Pearl White and True Blue.
Ram Laramie models will continue to be offered in an optional Bright Silver two­tone contrast, but for 2017 will also be available in two­tone RV Match Brown color. Non­two­tone paint is standard on Ram Laramie models.

Ram RV Match Brown models will go on sale in Q2 2017. About the Ram Laramie Longhorn

Using the most premium materials, the Laramie Longhorn is layered with southwestern design iconography and loaded inside and out with remarkable features and design cues from traditionally handcrafted, time­tested wares, such as the antique pocket watch, a fine pair of hand­tooled leather cowboy boots or a horseman’s saddle. The Ram Laramie Longhorn’s metal work and leather work are second to none.

Ram Longhorn models are distinguished externally by standard two­tone RV Match Brown trim, premium headlamps and tail lamps, unique wheels and grilles. Inside, Longhorn is trimmed in real Walnut Burl inserts stained in Canyon Brown or Cattle Tan. Longhorn’s premium seating features Cattle Tan leather with Black welting/stitching or Canyon Brown with or without premium leather filigrees. Front seats are heated and cooled, while rears are heated. Longhorn models also feature model­specific Uconnect Access and Multiview cluster screens which complement the overall design theme.

For 2017, Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 Longhorn models will be updated with a new front­end look that includes bright chrome billet port grille with RAM lettering and chrome belt moldings. Ram 1500 Longhorn models also add standard Keyless Go, SmartBeam headlights and rain­sensing wipers for 2017.
