2011-2012 Ram 1500 Crew Cab Laramie Longhorn

Has automatic all-wheel drive with two-speed dual range BorgWarner 4444 transfer gearbox with center locking multi-disc differential. The system has five selectable modes: Two High, Four Auto, Four High (Lock), Four Low, and Neutral.

Four-wheel, four-sensor, four-channel antilock braking system (ABS) with four-wheel electronic traction control and Hill Start Assist (HAS) are standard. Anti-Spin rear limited-slip differential (LSD) is offered as an optional extra.

Side note:

Starting with the 2013 model year, the facelifted Ram 1500 will receive Brake Lock Differential System (BLDS) as standard. BLDS adds more aggressive anti-slip logic to the four-wheel electronic traction control system.

The traction control system will brake slipping wheels much harder with more force and for a longer duration, to better simulate differential locks. With BLDS, the Ram will no longer have to have a rear limited-slip differential, but it may continue on as a option.

^Not only that, but it's finally getting the Pentastar V6 and 8 Speed Automatic (which, BTW will even be available on the 5.7L HEMI), as well. :)

Also for '13, the Pentasar/8-Speed combo will have a round knob transmission shift selector in the location of the 4x4 knob seen in Neptune's picture. Like the transmission shift selector in the Jaquar XF.

Would the gearbox also be the same as the XF? The latest models of that use an 8 speed ZF automatic unit.

According to wikipedia, the basic underlying gearbox, model 8HP, is the same as the XF. Revised for truck duty. Many others use it also.

The basic 8HP Series gearbox is the same, but there are different class variants: 8HP30, 8HP45, 8HP70, and 8HP90. The 2013 Ram 1500 will get the heavier-duty 8HP70 version for V-8 engine equipped models.

Pentastar V-6 gets the 8-speed 8HP45

HEMI V-8 gets the 8-speed 8HP70 (the same one used in the BMW 760Li (F02) and Land-Rover Range Rover (L322).

The ZF gearboxes used in those client’s vehicles are expected to lead a more leisurely life. For this reason, ZF Friedrichshafen AG said they worked closely with the engineers of the Ram 1500 to make sure the gearboxes were ready for/and could tolerate prolonged work related applications like payload hauling or heavy-duty trailer towing.

Ram 1500's 8HP70 will feature a new Thermal Management System (TMS) to rapidly warm the transmission up from a cold start. Conversely, TMS will cool the transmission down while towing trailers, to help the gearbox run cooler and with less parasitic losses.
