Posted at Fri, Mar 1, 2019 6:05 AM
The Ram 1500 is Dodge’s flagship full-size pickup truck that has been a popular choice among many who are looking for a truck that can do it all. The Dodge Ram is built to take on just about any type of activities from the base level daily driver to the fully loaded, farm-ready pickup truck with all of the bells and whistles. In between these two different extremes are a few different trim levels that include various different features and benefits to help give you the truck of your dreams. Today, we are going to look at one of these trim levels known as the Big Horn.
The 2019 Dodge Ram Big Horn is the second level trim model right above the base level Tradesman level and is going to be one of the best bang for your buck trucks that you can purchase. In this level, you will get the same great standard options found on the base level, but with some nice creature comfort upgrades. Let’s take a closer look at what you will be getting on this trim level.
At the heart of the 2019 Ram Lone Star, you will find a 395 horsepower 3.6L engine and 8 speed automatic transmission that is the perfect combination for any type of driving or towing you may need to do. For those who are needing to tow, you can enjoy a maximum towing capacity of 11,540 lbs. Choose between a 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive setup to give you the perfect configuration for what you will be using your truck for. A 3.21 rear axle gear ratio can be found inside the conventional differential on the 2019 Ram Lone Star to help with towing.
The Lone Star is the second trim level available on the 2019 Ram and offers some much needed upgrades over the base model to really bring together the great looks. On the Lone Star, you will find color matched bumpers, door handles, and a chrome grille that replace the black plastic counterparts on the base model. The exterior also gets a nice upgrade with a set of 18” aluminum wheels that outshine the steel standard wheels. Finishing up the exterior upgrades are tinted windows, a pickup box, a locking tailgate, illuminated entry, front fog lights, automatic headlights, and a remote keyless entry.
Moving onto the interior, the Lone Star got a huge upgrade from the standard equipment of the base trim level but still kept a few features that carried over. To keep you more comfortable on your drives, you can take advantage of the 4 way manual adjusting seats, 4 way headrests in the front, and 60,40 rear folding seats to give you all the room that you could need inside your truck. The upgrades you will notice on the interior are a GPS antenna input, a 6 speaker audio system, USB ports, an overhead console, locking glove box, a leather wrapped steering wheel, and a 5.0” touchscreen display.
