We drove a $69,000 RAM 1500 pickup truck that rivals Chevy Silverado and Ford F-150 — here are its coolest features (FCAU)

The all-new RAM 1500 pickup truck recently triumphed in a faceoff against another newcomer to the ultra-competitive US scene: the equally all-new Chevy Silverado.

(In case you were wondering, the mighty Ford F-150 was redesigned a few years back, and we haven’t checked it out since then, so stay tuned.)

In my rundown of the RAM’s advantages, I noted that we tested a flashy, upmarket “Laramie Longhorn” edition, more than $10,000 costlier than the Chevy. But I also noted that the RAM 1500 is the best pickup I’ve driven in quite a while.

Because our tester was extremely well-equipped, verging on a luxury vehicle, it was packed with cool goodies. I played around with all of them. Pickups are already a cornucopia of extras — that’s why the automakers can make so much money on them — but our Longhorn RAM 1500 took the matter to a different level.

Here’s a rundown of all the awesome features.
