Full Answer

The SLT title is not an official acronym, so it doesn't spell out a series of words. The SLT is a slight upgrade from the stock truck and usually includes improvements like a longer truck bed and 5-speed automatic instead of the stock 4-speed automatic. The high end Dodge Laramie is usually a limited edition or luxury cab when compared to the SLT model.
