The venerable pickup truck has been getting new duds as the big workhorse makers strive to get more of your business. The customization of trucks with different specialty packages are getting more common, and popular. Ram Trucks has long done that with its machines offering Power Wagons and interesting color schemes for years.
This week at the Texas State Fair, Ram is rolling out two new editions – one for all and one for Texas alone.
The new Laramie Longhorn Southfork Edition is available in both 1500 and 2500 trim. The Laramie Longhorn is already the reigning Texas Auto Writers Association Luxury Pickup of Texas, but this newest upgrade in the Southfork edition is kicking it up a notch. The new trucks get added luxury, tech and refinement.
The Laramie Longhorn Southfork edition is available on Ram 1500/2500/3500 4-by-2 and 4-by-4 Crew Cab, Mega Cab, long and short box trucks. Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Southfork edition has a suggested list price that starts at 51,220 plus a $1,395 destination charge. Suggested list for the Ram 2500 edition is 55,620 plus $1,395.

Another truck on display, but one that you only buy if you're in Texas, is the Ram Heavy Duty Lone Star Silver Edition. Available in the 2500/3500 4-by-2 and 4-by-4 Crew Cab trucks, the Lone Star Silver truck has a few engine choices. You can pick from the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8; 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 or the 6.7 liter Cummins inline 6 with torque that tops 930 pounds-feet. Price is $46,130 including the destination charge.
