How much towing can the Big Horn handle?
Ram delivers a highly capable lineup of engine options to choose from for the Big Horn including a diesel engine and several gas-powered engines. The new third-generation EcoDiesel V6 engine can tow an incredible 12,560 pounds when properly equipped, while the V8 Hemi with eTorque tops that with a tow rating of 12,750 pounds! There is also a 5.7-liter V8 Hemi without the eTorque mild hybrid system that can tow up to 11,610 pounds, and the standard 3.6-liter V6 that can tow up to 7,730 pounds! One thing is for sure though with the Ram 1500 Big Horn, no matter which engine you choose you’ll be more than ready to tow your trailer. All engines in the lineup come paired with a Class-Exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission that optimizes shift changes for better performance and fuel efficiency.
Can you go over the trailering safety features of the Ram 1500?
The Big Horn comes standard with a ParkView rear backup camera with dynamic gridlines and center lines which makes for easier hookups. When you opt for the available 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen you then get the option of being able to zoom in and out, so you can get an even better idea of where that trailer hitch is sitting. When you’re finally all hooked up you’re going to love the available blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-path and trailer detection system that takes into account both your truck and trailer when informing you if something is hanging out in your blind spot.
Big Horn customization to consider
Ram, always a fan of customization, allows you to outfit your Big Horn with a variety of different packages and stand-alone features. Looking for all-terrain tires, skid plates, tow hooks, and off-road decals? Then you are going to want to 4×4 Off-Road Group. Want to protect your bed with a spray-in bedliner, bed lighting, upper adjustable tie-downs, and a deployable bed step? Then the Bed Utility Group has your name written all over it. The Night Edition Appearance Package transforms the exterior of the Big Horn by swapping out the chrome accents for back ones.
