Can you bring up some of the features I might see in a Pre-Owned 1500 truck?

You will see models out there such as the Limited, Rebel, Laramie, Sport, and the Laramie Longhorn. Opt for the Rebel model if you need to take your truck out on the dusty backroads and boulder-strewn trails often. That one tends to have the 4x4 capability needed in such situations, bigger shocks, and an electronically disconnecting axle for better torque application. The Limited is the one to get into if you want the utmost luxury features a truck can give and yet still be a working truck. Features like a bigger touchscreen, leather seating, Argento wood elements, contrast stitching, and 20" forged multi-surface aluminum wheels. The Laramie Longhorn brings in that southern charm with wood-grain accents in the interior, running boards, leather dashboards, and branded logo badging. The Sport model keeps performance peppy with a vented sport hood, dual exhaust, and 20-inch wheels, not to mention fun colors for the exterior like Stinger Yellow and Ignition Orange!
