If you are really focused on seating comfort, then the Limited or Limited Longhorn is the best seating available for RAMs, the Laramie trim and on-down does not offer these seats. The two higher trims offer seats with adjustable lumbar support that can be adjusted vertically to fit the area of your back that needs the most support.

For continued freeway driving, I suggest staying away from off-road packages, raised suspension, and oversize and aggressive tread tires.

It may be because your vehicle is a 2021MY. I understand from my dealer, RAM took away the multi-adjustable lumbar support in 2022 and reserved it for the two high trim levels. He blamed supply chain issues as the reason.

You are kind of correct. The higher ones have 4 way lumbar. Rebel's only have 2 way, as an option, even for 2022

the seats in my '19 laramie have all kinds of adjustment. at least plenty for me. I have made several long trips and been happy with the comfort level. last year I drove all the way from Sheridan Wy. to home near Ft. Worth..around 1200 miles in one stretch. kept thinking I would stopover somewhere but got in a groove and just kept going. being here in Texas, the cooled front seats are nice. mine came with the ORG and the upside of that is the shocks in that package seem to be good for towing. I tow a 28' travel trailer with mine. I changed out the sway bar to the Helwig one and added airbags in the rear which I run 25# or so when towing just to stiffen up the backend a little.

Dealer mentioned to me that the Laramie seats are as good as the Limited on terms of "comfort" but we didn't discuss adjustability. I would think vertical adjustability would be helpful.
None of the Laramies on my local lot have blind spot detection which is pretty helpful for the freeway. Surprised it isn't there as a standard feature. I even checked to see if it was part of an equipment group, but I don't think it is.
Dealer has a Limited with an "auto levelling suspension" listed in the specs, but it isn't showing the active four corner air suspension on the window sticker. Is this an error, or is there some other load levelling feature available when you are towing?

yes the blindspot detection is a great have if you tow. mine estimates the trailer length after the first turn and is usually right on. good to know when it is clear to change lanes when towing. it was part of the level 1 equipment package on mine...with rain sensitive wipers etc.

I bet. It seems a little crazy as to how much money you have to spend just to get some good general truck features these days. It's. I'm almost Is considering just getting another round classic And maybe getting some heavier Springs for towing

The Limited with the 22s and air suspension is a dream cruising around.

The air suspension makes a huge difference in ride quality
