Ram continues to add more models to the Ram 1500 lineup and now we have the latest addition, the Ram 1500 BackCountry Edition. It builds on the 1500 Big Horn and Lone Star models by adding more off-road features to make it even more capable when the road ends.
The Ram 1500 BackCountry Edition comes standard with the 4×4 Off-Road Group, which includes tow hooks, skid plates for the front suspension, transfer case, power steering and fuel tank, rear electronic locking axle, off-road calibrated shocks, hill-descent control and all-terrain tires. It also gets the Bed Utility Group, which includes upper adjustable tie downs, bed extender deployable bed step, bed lighting and a spray-in bed liner.
On the outside it also gets 18-inch black wheels, black tu-tone exterior paint, black badging, exhaust tips, headlamp bezels, mirrors and running boards. Inside there’s a black interior, a 7-inch touchscreen, BackCountry badge on the instrument panel and all-weather slush mats.
The BackCountry Edition is available with either the 5.7-liter V-8 or the 5.7-liter V-8 engine with eTorque.
The 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry Edition starts at $41,780, including destination.
