Selecting the right 2014 Ram 1500 to fit your specific needs can seem overwhelming, but if you work with us, we’ll be able to walk you through all the options and help you make the right choice to fit your specific needs.
Two of the most popular models of the 2014 Ram 1500 are the SLT and Laramie packages. Both offer an excellent combination of comfort, style, power, and utility, but which one is right for you?
Ram 1500 SLT vs Ram 1500 Laramie
First, let’s start with what the trucks have in common. Both are available with all three engines, the award-winning 3.6L Pentastar V6, the powerful 5.7L HEMI V8, and the game-changing 3.0L EcoDiesel V6, the only diesel engine currently available in a light-duty pickup. All of these engines come with the smooth-running 8-speed automatic transmission.
Both trucks come in Quad Cab and Crew Cab layout, and both have the 5’7” box (Crew Cab only) or the 6’4” box.
Now, on to the differences. Both of these trucks have a unique character, but it essentially boils down to utility vs luxury. The SLT version comes with less comfort and convenience extras, but is available with the essential utility features that make for an excellent work truck.
For example, the SLT is available with a regular cab and a large 8’ box. The Laramie is not available with either of these features.
The Laramie does have more comfort and convenience, including leather seating and bucket seats, which are not available in the SLT. Also, the RamBox Cargo Management feature is an option with the Ram 1500 Laramie, but it is not available with the SLT.
