Next year is a big year for Ram and its 1500 full-size pickup truck will enter its fifth generation. Ram will bring plenty of innovations and well-known 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn will arrive better than ever. All of the models will get new tow hooks, refreshing exterior design, new frame and boosted interior.
Big Horn is a mid-range trim that is very recommendable as it brings more standard features for a slightly higher price. On top of that, the performance is also better, and the diesel powertrain is available as before. Speculation is saying that the hybrid variant is a great possibility for those who seek better fuel economy.
2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn specs and colors
Longer, wider, lighter. The 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn will arrive with slight dimensional changes and it will grow in size. However, thanks to the use of lightweight materials, this pickup comes with less weight than before. The exterior will suffer plenty of changes, and improvements are visible at a first look. Popular crosshair grille is gone and a new six-sided grille will take the front central position. It holds a big Ram’s logo and the front also gets adaptive LED headlights.
The base model will get halogen units without the adaptive system. As the Big Horn is higher grade trim level, expect more chrome materials, and large wheels. There would be up to 12 exterior colors in the offer and four of them are all-new. That includes Diamond Black Crystal, Patriot Blue, Tri-coat white and Billet Silver. The aerodynamics are improved, new is the aluminum tailgate and rear spoiler.
2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn interior updates
The forthcoming 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn will also get astonishing interior updates. Basically, everything from the inside is new and it looks impressive. Just like on every other model, the interior will change through the trim levels, so will stick to the Big Horn model only. First of all, the materials are on another level now, and the technology is better as well.
The 12-inch Uconnect infotainment screen is the largest screen in the segment. A familiar 8.4-inch display will remain, but it will come with an all-new software. Dimensional changes mean more legroom for the passengers and the reclining rear seats are improving the roominess even more. Both front and rear seats are equally comfortable. The shape of the HVAC vents looks very modern and the buttons layout is a thing of beauty in our opinion.
2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn engine variants
Unlike the base model that will use a 3.6-liter V6, the 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn will have two different powertrain options. The first unit is a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that arrives with some serious updates. A mild-hybrid system. While still just a rumor, Ram 1500 will get its hybrid variant that will use Hemi V8 engine in a combination with the electric motor-generator. The 5.7-liter engine generates 395 HP and 410 lb-ft of torque, and adding a hybrid system will not improve those figures. However, fuel economy will be much better and eTorque system will be included as well. We are still waiting for the official confirmation and the exact output numbers.
Besides the V8 and mild-hybrid variant, the Ram 1500 Big Horn will use a 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine. This unit also comes with the improvements as the horsepower are now rated at 260 HP instead of 240 HP. Moreover, torque numbers will get the same upgrade so the final figures are set at 442 lb-ft of torque.
