In addition to two announced special editions, at the 2017 State Fair of Texas presented another one: 2018 RAM Laramie Longhorn Southfork Edition. It will be available on all three models: 1500, 2500 and 3500. Likely to be available during the spring of this year.

There are plenty of chrome details on the outside, as well as Longhorn badge on the tailgate. Available are all colors of the standard Laramie Longhord model (26 colors), with plenty of natural wood elements in the cabin, as well as plenty of leather liners. Also, in the cabin there are Canyon Brown and Light Frost Beige Natura Plus full-grain leather seats, as well as a telescopic steering wheel of walnut wood (coated with fine leather). In addition, it has dual-zone automatic climate control. The center console features an 8.4-inch touchscreen, with the Uconnect 4C infotainment system, as well as a 7-inch full-color driver information digital cluster display.

The Heavy Duty models will have a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI, a 6.4-liter V8 HEMI, as well as 6.7-liter I-6 Cummins turbo diesel engine.

It also offers optional rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, possibly with a 8-speed automatic transmission.
