IT'S NOT BIG, UNLESS IT'S A RAM 1500 BIG HORN®
The famed Big Horn® nameplate has arrived. With its class-leading 4.5-tonnes max braked towing, legendary 5.7-litre V8 HEMI® and a choice of two cargo tub sizes (including a massive 6'4" long tub), the Ram 1500 Big Horn® is a true workhorse.
The RAM 1500 Pickup Truck offers the only V8 HEMI® engine in its class and is without a doubt one of the most powerful. The V8 HEMI® delivers 291 kW of power and 556 Nm of torque, while delivering the unmistakable V8 rumble to announce your arrival. This legendary powertrain now incorporates eTorque technology via an onboard electric motor, creating a mild-hybrid system. Benefits are numerous, including longer 4-cylinder operation while in the MDS mode and more refined Stop/Start capability.
4.5 Tonne max towing! That’s a whole tonne more than any mid-size ute! With a maximum braked towing capacity across the V8 HEMI®-powered range of up to 4.5 Tonnes#, nothing comes close to the RAM 1500 when it comes to towing.
More than ever, a Ram 1500 is tasked with multiple assignments. Fortunately, the 1500 Big Horn® is designed to accomplish every towing and hauling assignment you’d expect. With unrivalled HEMI® performance (along with a nice V8 rumble), best-in-class max braked towing capacity of 4.5 Tonnes#, and the option to adapt the cargo tub size to suit your needs, the 1500 Big Horn® is a rolling powerhouse. If you want to tow more, carry more, move more, see more, and enjoy more, the 1500 Big Horn® is the perfect option for those who work hard and play hard. Click here to see the News Release.
Available in either 5'7" or 6'4" cargo tub versions, the Ram 1500 Big Horn® features a bedliner and load tray illumination as standard, along with a central locking tailgate equipped with a fully damped tailgate release. The 6'4" cargo tub variant boasts the largest tub size across the 1500 range, delivering more load-carrying capacity than before possible across its DT stable mates. The cargo tub width will take a full-size pallet with ease and you’ll still have space left over for all kinds of gear, regardless of which tub length you opt for. This no-nonsense practicality continues with multiple tie-down points, a deployable bed step and up to 878kg payload on the 6'4" tub variant, making it perfect for the job site during the week and out and about for weekend adventures.
The Big Horn® has a bold and muscular exterior design, creating an unmissable presence on the road. Undergoing a complete re-design on the inside and out, the Ram 1500 Big Horn® is longer and wider when compared with its DS predecessor and is flanked with shapely lines, along with a bold chrome-surround front grille. The longer DT wheelbase and cab provide improved proportions for even more interior comfort and enhanced aerodynamics thanks to the elimination of wheel arch flares. The powerful 5.7L HEMI® engine comes with fuel-saver technology, as well as an eTorque petrol mild-hybrid system with refined stop/start>.
Boasting the largest cab in its class, the increased overall DT cab length allows for larger front and rear doors and overall enhanced passenger comfort. Once inside the cabin, you’ll appreciate the practical interior styling and features like the premium leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, durable cloth seating all round with heated driver and passenger seats.
The Ram 1500 Big Horn® is packed with practical tech and useful features. The 8.4" Uconnect touchscreen comes with wireless Apple Carplay™ and Android Auto™ connectivity, as well as convenient steering wheel mounted audio controls. The Big Horn® also features front and rear ParkSense® Park Assist, power and heated door mirrors, electro-chromatic rear view mirror, electric rear sliding cab window and much more.
>eTorque incorporates an onboard electric motor to create a mild-hybrid system. Benefits are numerous, including longer 4-cylinder operation while in the MDS (cylinder deactivation) mode and more refined Stop/Start capability. The onboard motor interacts with the regenerative braking, creating a generator which converts kinetic energy to recharge the battery system.
