Following in the footsteps of its half-ton sibling the Ram 1500, the 2021 Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty Longhorn will changing its “Laramie Longhorn” branding for the new model year. Instead, RAM is dropping the Laramie part of the Laramie Longhorn name and replacing it with Limited – creating the new “Limited Longhorn” name.
While the luxurious Limited trim still sits on top of the Ram Heavy Duty lineup, it shares a lot of its premium equipment with the Limited Longhorn thus explains the name change. Things like chrome accents, chrome bumpers, premium LED headlamps with Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS), tow hooks, wheel flares, and side steps are just a few things that the two premium models share.
